Barrier-free building shows foresight. All the barrier-free units in your home allow for the living space to be used independently – largely without any help. Schüco offers the right solutions for this. In addition to flat and zero-level threshold solutions, this also includes the Schüco AWS window system platform with innovative further developments. For window doors with large opening widths that are very easy to use.
For today. For tomorrow. For buildings with a bright future.
Schüco windows make it possible not only to easily realise the many advantages of barrier-free constructions, but also to fulfil the DIN standard relating to accessible buildings without difficulty. The DIN 18040-2 standard (Construction of accessible buildings) applies to barrier-free planning, execution and equipment of flats, buildings with flats and their outdoor areas, which are intended for home-related use. In other words, living spaces in which people should feel comfortable.
Barrier-free patio doors from Schüco are easy to open and close, and safe to pass through. Creating a barrier-free transition between the inside and outside includes having sufficient space to move in front of the door and stepless access. To ensure unrestricted wheelchair use, a clear opening dimension (clear width) of at least 900 mm is required; if this is not required, then the dimension is 800 mm. In addition, the clearance height (clear height) must be at least 2050 mm in accordance with DIN 18040-2. The barrier-free window doors easily fulfil these parameters with a width of 1300 mm and a maximum height of 2500 mm. Schüco window doors made from aluminium or PVC-U also boast a zero-level threshold without a tripping hazard, ensuring a seamless transition onto your patio or balcony.
Innovative ease of access
The Schüco AWS barrier-free window construction allows for a seamless transition from inside tooutside. The window system has different opening types, is easy to use and has a zero-level threshold, thereby meeting all of the requirements in terms of comfort and design.
20 mm threshold
An effortless, flat solution
Integrating a particularly flat threshold into the Schüco window systems provides greater ease of use in comparison to conventional thresholds. The low construction height of 20 mm fulfils the requirements of barrier-free building. Additional benefits include the concealed fixing system and the kick plate.
Trouble-free living thanks to ease of access
Creating an easy-access building makes the living space very comfortable and convenient. This benefits not only people with limited mobility, but also the elderly and families with children.
