Schüco Grid2Shell free-form facadeProduct List


Schüco Grid2Shell – free-form facade with specially prefabricated node units

Schüco Grid2Shell is a facade solution as a special construction.
It is a self-supporting aluminium-glass construction that can be used as a fully-fledged curtain wall and also as a light roof construction with an all-glass look for specific projects.
The all-glass SG profile solution with three-stage seal structure is connected via specially prefabricated junctions. Additional load-bearing or superstructure steel substructures are a thing of the past.
With the aid of a self-supporting plug-in system, Schüco Grid2Shell is easy to plan and functions according to the plug & play principle.
The high-strength, specially alloyed support profiles are simply connected with specially manufactured node elements without complex welded joints. The use of costly heavy-duty cranes can usually be dispensed with.
Triangular or polygonal grid elements allow individual shapes of the building envelope to be realised. Particularly unique

Special feature

In addition to the components of the Grid2Shell series, Schüco also provides support for static pre-dimensioning.

Planning requires software products such as Rhino or Grasshopper that support parameterised planning.

Data recorded in this way is transmitted via Schüco to the upstream supplier of the nodes. Subsequently, the individual connection nodes are manufactured on the basis of the final project model. Using these digital models ensures fast and secure order processing. During the production of the connection nodes, the node branches are numbered and unmistakably marked so that a plug & play assembly assigned to the support profiles is possible.
