FACID Fabric Cladding Systems

In many cases it is possible to use a pre-engineered fabric cladding system which can result in cost and programme benefits.

Key Benefits

  • Perfect, long-lasting clamping of the fabric right up to the corners and attachments
  • Fast, reliable installation without expensive special tools or machinery
  • Easy combination of existing and newly built structures in a new, collective exterior architecture
  • Can be fully reversed or reversed in parts without disruption to operations
  • Complex façade scaffolding can be avoided with the use of moving work platforms

The FACID façade system from Schueco is available in two formats:


Fitted on site by tensioning fabric panels into aluminium extrusions, mounted directly onto the building, or bolted to a lightweight first fix frame.


A panelised system pre-fitted into an aluminium frame in the factory, ten fixed to the first fix frame. This system can also be fitted with sliding gear to form external sliding window screens.
