FACID Tensile Fabric Facades

The Schüco FACID Facade is a cost effective, functional and flexible tensile mesh fabric solution offering opportunities to create a unique facade appearance adaptable to a wide variety of supporting surfaces on a range of building types.

FACID is a non-flammable fabric that provides effective solar shading, while ensuring ventilation and transparency with clear views to the outside. Lower cost options are available for low-flammable printable mesh fabric.

Schüco FACID Facade system can be overlaid on almost any facade type with a high level of design freedom to re-imagine and play with the building envelope to make a functional yet uniquely creative statement. Offering numerous configuration options to create three-dimensional shapes, a spectrum of colours to select from, the ability to print text and artwork onto the fabric, as well as the ability to utilise the translucency of the fabric through effective lighting to create a striking night scene.

Thermosash Group have partnered with German company Schüco. Thermosash manufactures here in New Zealand and installs all Schüco product using our own team of experienced people, ensuring you get not only a quality product but a continuation of our quality service.

Our Expertise
Thermosash’s abilities have grown since its 1973 start-up when Laurie Hayes and his colleagues manufactured commercial windows out of a small production facility. It quickly became apparent that the products and skills of the workforce were creating a performing quality, flexible product that the market sought.

Over time, our teams of dedicated and committed people have grown, this has been possible through constant reassessment of internal and external processes and manufacturing methods from around the world. We’ve also provided ongoing reinvestment in the training of our people to ensure lean process, IT Systems, material handling machinery and transport logistics equipment, as well as design office and factory production process improvements. We are able to offer a world class company with manufacturing facilities in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
