Schüco Window System LivIng Alu InsideProduct List


Based on the Schüco LivIng system dimensions, using patented aluminium profile rolling technology turns Schüco LivIng Alu Inside into a steel-free profile with maximum thermal insulation alongside a high level of cost-effectiveness and flexibility in fabrication and installation.

Schüco LivIng Alu Inside is the next logical development of the Schüco Alu Inside system. It is based on patented aluminium profile rolling technology, whereby 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. With this highly thermally insulated PVC-U system, steel-free windows which are suitable for passive houses can be produced economically on an industrial scale.

Thanks to its 7-chamber profile construction, the dispensation with steel reinforcement and the targeted positioning of the aluminium hinges, Schüco LivIng Alu Inside has no thermal bridging. Here, the material within the profile system – a high-quality aluminium alloy – is a distinct advantage because it reflects approx. Because it reflects approx. 90% of the thermal radiation due to its polished surface. The optimum division of the chambers, the reduction of the rebate space and additional, large insulation zones to accommodate optional insulation blocks allow insulation values to be achieved.

  • Identical system dimensions as Schüco LivIng allow a variety of main and accessory profiles to be used together and combined
  • Centre gasket system with three continuous drainage levels for maximum protection against wind, cold and moisture
  • Window system to passive house standard Patented aluminium profile rolling technology (Patent-Nr. EP 1 196 677 B2)
  • The aluminium insulating bars are machined back simply and quickly before the welding process using an insulating bar milling machine; this removes the time-consuming process of fixing the steel reinforcements with screws All other fabrication steps are carried out in the usual way and using conventional production systems.
  • The lack of steel reinforcements results in a smaller dead load and makes unit installation much easier
  • Simplified ordering process and warehouse storage plus efficient fabrication, as no steel reinforcement is required and the system is compatible with Schüco LivIng
  • 100% recyclable
  • The aluminium cover cap can be clipped on without trimming the drip edge
  • Cam lock screws and several walls in the outer and vent frames to securely fix the fitting
