Schucal 2019 R2

New Schucal 2019 R2 has been published and is ready to install.

This is a critical update. Please install it as soon as possible, your actual Schucal version does not sync service packs and actual price lists anymore. That makes Schucal not compatible with actual system definitions and material prices.

Warning: Schucal users who have installed custom systems/profiles prepared for US market can lose these system definitions after this update.

However, projects made with these custom updates will not be removed and will stay in your Schucal database.

Immediately after Schucal 2019 R2 installation please install again all custom systems/profiles definitions that you were using in your projects BEFORE opening them in the Schucal. This procedure will preserve all custom system and let you create new ones as before.

It is also suggested to make backup of custom system/profiles based projects (Schucal tab Manage > Export data) BEFORE installing new Schucal.

If you need custom installers please send me a list with required systems so I will share the links to the latest ones.

As an summary for custom systems/profiles scenario:

  • Make backup of custom system/profiles based projects (Schucal tab Manage > Export data)
  • Install and start Schucal 2019 R2. Do not open projects with custom systems/profiles definitions.
  • Shut down Schucal.
  • Install custom systems/profiles definitions form installers I sent before. Ask me if you can not find them, I will resend again.
  • Start Schucal. Now you are safe to open existing custom projects and create new ones.

Network database users: After first run of new Schucal in network database environment it will convert the database to the new format.

After this process all other Schucal stations that were not updated yet will loose access to the database, until they are updated as well.

You can download and run the cloud installer from the location:

After the start, cloud installer will ask for temporary package download location. Just click Select folder button to confirm default:

After a while you will see progress window with download time estimation:

The installer needs about 40 min (it depends of your local internet speed) to complete download and installation process.

After this phase installation process will start automatically.

In case of any troubles please contact me so I will be able to help ASAP.

Schüco system glass -change to Psi values

As of this version, the Psi values for the Schüco system glass will always be calculated in accordance with ift guidelines WA-22/2 (for façades) and WA-8/3 (for windows).

This means that a correction value will be added to the representative Psi value calculated so far (based on the type of profile and the thickness of the outer and, if applicable, the inner glass pane).

Please note:

This change will result in significantly higher Psi values for the corresponding Schüco system glass and also affects existing items.

For the Schüco AD UP 90 system, you can specify which insulation version is generated (Standard or SI) via the new Thermal insulation property in the technical settings under the group U value optimization.

Art. No. 245342 is generated as a length-related article in the length of the composite profile. The length specification is identified with an asterisk (*) in the Cut column in the material list if they still require precise adjustment.

Please note for the U value calculation:

Until further notice, the maximum Uf value for the AD UP 90 system is still calculated for all profile combinations with insulation profile Art. No. 245342. This is 2.5 W/(m²K).

Sun shading

Integralmaster as system solution:
Update to order and fabrication manual 4-1 (06.2019)

(Not available in all countries.)

As of this version, the Integralmaster glare protection and sun shading integrated in the glazing beads is calculated as a Schüco system solution. The calculation in the program is carried out in accordance with the updated order pages in order and fabrication manual 4-1 (06.2019).

The entry options have been changed and expanded in the Field properties dialog box under the Integralmaster sun shading group.

  • The Color of the drop bar property has been renamed as Color of the guide rod.
  • Manual operating type: the new Chain type property allows you to specify the desired version.
  • Electric operating type (not for fixed glazing): the new Cable link connector property allows you to specify the desired version (can/cannot be detached).

Changes for the price enquiry/order:

  • As of this version, a system article number is calculated for the internal blind. (Integralmaster motor = Art. No. 200300, Integralmaster chain = Art. No. 200301). It is not currently possible to automatically calculate the price for these articles in the program. The price must be requested. For this, use the Price enquiry for Integralmaster sun shading list.
  • Germany:


    For the price enquiry/order, the fabrication option must be specified (version 1: SUN-MASTER; version 2: Customer). You must enter this information as a comment in the output options for the relevant list.

Please note:

Existing items with Integralmaster sun shading will change:

  • In previous versions, no calculation was made in the program for standard glass supports for the version with electric drive, because special glass supports were required for this drive type and included in the delivery. Following the system changeover, these special glass supports are no longer required for the electric drive. The standard glass supports are generated.
  • In previous versions, the internal blind with electric drive moved from bottom to top. The new design moves in a similar way to the manual version: from top to bottom.
  • The semi-transparent textile blinds and the blackout textile blind are no longer available. For items from previous versions, the next possible blind from the selection list is calculated instead.
  • Correction to double-vent vent: In previous versions, for double-vent openings the operating side of the access and secondary vent was the side which was defined in the Field properties dialog box. As of this version, the operating side for the access and secondary vent is generated as a mirror image. The information about the operating side in the Field properties dialog box is copied over for the access vent. The secondary vent automatically receives the operating side on the other side (example, view from inside: access vent = operating side left, secondary vent = operating side right).
Schüco ALB sun shading:
Product streamlining (order and fabrication manual 4-2 (02.2019))

For the ALB large louvre blade system, various articles have been changed as a result of improvements to the individual system components. The ALB needle louvre blades and the ALB glass louvre blades are no longer available in the system. The accessory components for these two systems are also being removed from the product range.

The needle louvre blades and the glass louvre blades can no longer be selected for new items for the Schüco ALB active linear drive system.
