Overview of the Schuco AWS 70 SC.

The window is an outward opening casement available in either internally or externally beaded formats.  Using a more simplified suite of profiles, means easier manufacturing for fabricators. Its simplicity also makes it easy to sell.

Schuco traditionally have very highly engineered and top quality products available with a huge range of additional sections and options, even down to the design of bespoke extrusions.  The introduction of this new window simplifies the product substantially with five possible vent options and simple standard or heavy duty formats.

All window sections are flat and modern in appearance and presently there is no ovolo, chamfered or profiled options available.  Many retail companies will consider this an omission on Schuco’s part, but they are missing the point of the window if they do.

The expert and knowledgable window companies will already offer an alternative window system that can provide “featured” window sections therefore the contemporary appearance of the AWS 70 SC should complement existing product ranges.
