SchücoLivIng Alu Inside is the enhancement to the SchücoAlu Inside system. It is based on the patented aluminium profile rolling technology (patent No. EP 1 196 677 B2), in which the continuous aluminium strips are simultaneously extruded into PVC-U profiles. They provide the entire construction with a level of stability which almost rivals that of steel-reinforced profiles. This highly thermally insulated PVC-U system allows windows suitable for passive houses to be produced economically on an industrial scale. Because of the 7-chamber profile construction, the dispensation with steel reinforcement and the specific positioning of the aluminium hinges, which reflects approx. 90 % of the thermal radiation, SchücoLivIng Alu Inside has no thermal bridging. In addition, large-volume additional insulation zones can accommodate insulation blocks. The three continuous drainage levels made of weldable EPDM rubber provide the best weathertightness over decades.Based on the system dimensions of Schüco LivIng, the use of a large number of identical parts with SchücoLivIng Alu Inside offers significant flexibility in fabrication and installation while minimising warehouse storage. Energy-saving windows in the SchücoLivIng Alu Inside profile system range are 100% recyclable.
