Leading sustainable building envelope specialist, Schueco UK, has announced that following comprehensive testing in both the UK and Germany, its successful AWS 70 SC casement window has been awarded Q Mark Product Certification by Exova BM Trada.

The tests included air, wind, water, recycling and all aspects of BS 4873, as well as PAS 24 security. The latter is of particular interest to fabricators because it means that the window can be used in Secured by Design projects, providing a useful extra sales opportunity.

The tests were carried out on Schueco AWS 70 SC windows with all the five different vent profiles, including inside and outside glazing beads with their respective hinges and locking systems.

This independent confirmation of the Schueco AWS 70 SC window’s overall performance underlines its superior quality and enables fabricators who have already achieved – or are planning to achieve – Q Mark certification, to add this popular window to their approved range of products.
