SCHAKO corporate history


95 years of SCHAKO.

The companies of the SCHAKO Group, including NOVENCO Building & Industry, SCHNEIDER Elektronik and SCHAKO, will present the latest developments in the fields of ventilation, air conditioning, smoke extraction and control at ISH 2023 Live. Since the ISH trade fair planned for 2021 could only be held purely digitally due to COVID 19 pandemic, it is gratifying that a face-to-face event could now be held again in 2023.

COVID pandemic overcome without short-time work. SCHAKO has overcome the pandemic without having to announce short-time working. Thanks to a wide range of measures, it was possible to get through the coronavirus phase, which was very strenuous and exhausting for everyone, without having to introduce short-time work for our employees.


 The new products design ceiling diffuser CDD, air diffuser for large air volumes IGA, slot diffuser DSCXLS and the air diffuser for open ceiling systems LOD extend the wide range of air diffusers from SCHAKO. The new NK multileaf damper has also been added to the product portfolio of dampers.

New roof-mounted 750 kW photovoltaic system at SCHAKO in Messkirch. With a new photovoltaic system, SCHAKO has produced since March 2020 up to 90 % of the daily electricity demand in the Messkirch plant on its own – conservatively calculated, and it could be more. From the ecological point of view, the new PV system is a great success, since the PV system saves several ten thousands of CO2 and protects the environment. Service life of the system: 30 years – according to the promises of the project developer.

SCHAKO Group at the ISH 2019 in Frankfurt. A larger stand, more service and more and more intensive consulting: this was the trade fair concept on the new stand of the SCHAKO Group at the ISH 2019 that has been installed for the first time in hall 8 due to conversion work for SCHAKO. The concept was a great success. Twice as many visitors as the years before, fruitful talks and interesting common concept solutions were the proof for the customers at the SCHAKO stand on the one hand and for the SCHAKO employees on the other that a visit at the ISH in Frankfurt is always paying off.

The new SCHAKO ceiling air diffuser CPL. The newly developed ceiling air diffuser CPL for installation in ceiling panels on site allows a draught-free air supply and an invisible integration in the ceiling system. The appearance of the reflected ceiling plan is not interrupted by air diffusers.



The new room air-conditioning module SCHAKO CTT. The product range of air-water products and air-water systems is consequently expanded and the highly compact room air-conditioning module CTT is developed. Due to its small mounting depth of 100 mm, this room air-conditioning module is ideal for the installation in so-called think tanks and room-in-room systems.

Strategic partnership between SCHAKO and liNear. SCHAKO goes BIM with SCHAKOnnect: so SCHAKO and LiNear document their strategic partnership for the ISH 2017 with an innovative software application: the new online design platform SCHAKOnnect. Not only the liNear users benefit from the new partnership but all those who wanted to use the SCHAKO components for the (BIM-compliant) planning of air ventilation systems. The BIM data records generated for the liNear program of SCHAKO can therefore also be used for the integral planning in the building service engineering.

The new combined ceiling slot diffuser for supply and return air SCHAKO COMBDSC The combination ceiling slot diffuser for supply and return air COMBIDSC offers freedom of planning with regard to the ceiling design since the stable supply air jet can be set individually and a short-circuit of supply and return air is consequently avoided.
