Building on its successful UDC 65 façade system, aluminium specialist Schüco is introducing its new UDC 80 unitized façade system, designed to suit modern construction methods for medium and high rise residential or commercial buildings.

UDC 80 combines enhanced energy efficiency with design versatility and proven weather resistant performance. The slim profile (80mm) gives an elegant external appearance with an attractive U-value of just 0.86 W/m2K.

The system is designed to incorporate not just glazing but a range of materials including sheet metal panels, printed glass or natural stone. These can be integrated flush into the façade, or face-filled to create deep offsets if required, giving a huge range of design possibilities.

UDC 80 is designed to arrive on site as prefabricated modules and is available with two options to include concealed ventilation (UDC 80 CV) or to implement structural glazing (UDC 80 SG).

With tried and trusted German engineering and robust performance testing, the UDC 80 demonstrates excellent watertightness, strength and airtightness, making it more than a match for the UK weather.
