Schüco USA has partnered with Al-Farooq Corporation to enter the South Florida market with the release of several products in 2018. Al-Farooq was contracted by the global building envelope specialist to test and approve the products to assure they meet South Florida’s high standards and regulations. The first product launched this month, an outward opening terrace door, is the first of its kind for the region. Al-Farooq Corporation is currently testing several other products for Schüco that should be released in South Florida later this year – just in time for hurricane season.
Al-Farooq Corporation, a Miami-based engineering consulting firm, is helping Schüco USA enter the South Florida market with the release of an outward opening terrace door, the Schüco AWS 75.SI+.
The global building envelope specialist has contracted the South Florida engineering firm to launch the product. Al-Farooq Corporation has tested and approved the product to assure it meets the rigorous standards and regulations for the hurricane market.
Ideal for South Florida’s rainy and windy seasonal climate, the terrace doors were designed for high-level water tightness.
The design consists of easy-access threshold options, which meets ADA half-inch threshold height limitations while also maintaining 15 PSF of water resistance test performance, far exceeding minimum requirements.
“It has been great to work with Schüco,” says Senior Engineer, Jalal Farooq. “Their team is knowledgeable, responsive, and their products are recognized around the world. We are pleased that they have chosen Al-Farooq Corporation to guide them to success in this hurricane market.”
