Wall Cladding Keeps A Building Healthy And Free From Mold

When making decisions about a building, selections of style and color often dominate the design process. And yet, one of the most important decisions to be made in the planning stages may not get the attention that it should. How will you protect the insulation in your building so that moisture from rain and snow don’t invade the inside of a structure? This vital decision affects the energy efficiency of a building, the health, and wellbeing of those insides, and even the life span of the structure itself. Making the right decision on wall cladding can avoid the problems that result from damp insulation.

DANPAL’S VENTILATED RAINSCREEN SYSTEM: WALL CLADDING AT ITS BEST

Danpal’s Ventilated Rainscreen System or VRS protects insulation completely. With natural ventilation that’s based upon the built-in air gap, the convective motion behind the panels keeps insulation moisture-free. The wall cladding panels are double-notched and watertight. Made of connector-bound microcell technology, the polycarbonate panels are three times lighter than traditional rainscreen cladding. Our customized panel lengths range from the standard 12.0m to longer, depending on your preference and the design of the building itself. Because the connections can be made directly onto the support, there’s no need to use additional supporting framed structures. VRS is light, it’s solid, and it keeps your building’s insulation dry.

Wall CladdingWALL CLADDING AND BUILDING HEALTH

The condition of the insulation in a building possesses enormous control over a building’s wellbeing. Damp insulation that’s been compromised by moisture caused by rain and snow affects the energy efficiency of a building. If the temperature in the home or workplace isn’t consistent and needs to be constantly adjusted to adapt to the cold or heat outside, your energy may be escaping. This will cause your utility bills to increase because you’re paying for energy that you aren’t using. It also takes its toll on the environment, because wasted energy works against the efforts that we’re all making to reduce our carbon footprint as we strive to alleviate the climate stress that the planet is currently facing.

There’s a human element at risk as well when insulation is no longer dry. Moist, damp insulation is a breeding ground for mold and mold can have a very serious impact on the health of a building’s occupants. If mold is growing in your building, people with respiratory ailments may find that their asthma or allergies are worsening.

Damp insulation is an indication that the building is not free from leaks caused by moisture and a leak that goes undetected can cause actual harm to the building itself; in a worst-case scenario, structural collapse may result from this situation. Wall cladding is a frontline defense system that will keep your building healthy for the people who live and work inside it. It will also keep the building itself healthy by preventing leaks that weaken a structure.

Choose Danpal wall cladding that’s designed to keep insulation dry. Your healthy building will be the result!

Choose a curtain wall system for your building’s appearance and defense against weather

If you’ve been listening to the weather reports lately, you’ve probably noticed that either Mother Nature is having one major temper tantrum, or the seasons are changing. On all parts of the planet, people are coming to terms with stronger storms, unpredictable variations in patterns, and a growing sense that all of us need to pay attention to the signs coming out of the sky.

Smart consumers are adapting their lifestyles and their routines to accommodate the need to treat the planet the way we would treat a beloved family member who’s going through a rough time: gently, attentively, and unselfishly. The building industry is doing the same thing as everyone else because we know that the structures that architects design need to conform to the ethical and sustainable goals of an environmentally-conscious society while still meeting the needs and preferences of architects and their clients.

At Danpal, we can promise that the products that you buy are designed with quality in mind. Research and development aren’t just words at Danpal; they’re a priority. There are many ways to design a building that provides structural strength and aesthetic appeal and one of those ways is to install a curtain wall system.

Curtain Wall SystemsCURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS ARE A SHIELD AGAINST WEATHER

Danpal’s microcell technology is key to the strength of a Danpal curtain wall system. The material is incredibly strong and at the same time, it’s light in weight and easy to work with. Rain and snow bring moisture that, once inside, becomes the enemy. The weather that manages to invade a building’s interior can cause a lot of damage over time, so protection from leaks is one of the popular assets of having a curtain wall system.

Another prized feature of our curtain wall systems is the protection they offer from hail, a potentially dangerous weather phenomenon that has the power to inflict considerable damage against an unprotected building. A building doesn’t have to be a fort to be protected from the weather; all it needs is a curtain wall system from Danpal.

BEAUTY IS BUILT INTO THE CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS

Danpal doesn’t want a building to look as if it’s so super-protected that it could double for a military complex. We know that people want to live and work in buildings that have an attractive appearance, where comfort is a priority. Danpal curtain wall systems have the unique ability to take the color palette and turn it into a building’s rainbow runway. We even have a variety of different shades of white that can give your building a lustrous appearance. Customizing the look of a building to the tone and flavor of the neighborhood is something for which curtain wall systems are especially well suited.

THE CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS ARE EASY TO WORK WITH

The construction of a building takes a lot of time. So isn’t it nice that a curtain wall system from Danpal, because it’s made of lightweight materials, is easy to install, taking less time and effort? The concealed joints that keep the exterior wall flush also facilitate the ease of customization, which is another plus for installation, along with the curtain wall system’s double-locking seam.

All of these Danpal features add up to a curtain wall system that gives your building protection against weather, ease of installation, and an enhanced appearance.

Curtain Wall Systems: Weather Protection for all Seasons

You know what a curtain is. You know what a wall is. You know what a system is. What you may be pondering is how all these elements combine to create an entity that provides better weather protection for your building while promoting practices and providing choices that offer both environmental and esthetic choices. Architects are trained to create a building that starts as a concept and finishes as a structure. In between those starting and ending points, there’s Danpal.

SECURITY WITH A DANPAL CURTAIN WALL SYSTEM

The construction process that goes along with the installation of a curtain wall system reveals a lot of work. But much of the work that’s part of the process is unseen. In order to create a curtain wall system that has the high performance quality that Danpal products are famous for, we dedicated an impressive amount of research, time, and effort. Because our products are light in weight, they’re easier to work with. Clients appreciate the increased convenience and financial savings that they receive as a result. Flexibility adds to the esthetics of the curtain wall system; ours have concealed joints to keep the exterior wall flush, allowing for adaptation to the desired shape. The building is secure thanks to our double-click locking seam which adds to the easy installation process. Those features are the result of the know-how that Danpal brings to the manufacturing process: before we build it, we’ve researched it and tested it so that. You see the finished product. That’s where Danpal innovation and quality are visible.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMSWHAT A CURTAIN WALL SYSTEM ADDS TO YOUR BUILDING

Maybe you’re wondering why we’re so proud of our curtain wall systems. It’s true that curtain wall systems don’t play a structural part in the design of your building, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t important. A building can’t protect itself from the damage that weather can cause, whether it’s from a single extreme event or the ongoing, relentless effects of snow, wind, rain and even sunlight on the structure. Our secret weapon is our microcell technology, which gives the curtain wall system that line of defense that keeps damage out. Once a building has been damaged on the inside by dampness left behind from snow or rain, it’s compromised in a manner that will affect your energy expenses, the structural integrity of the building, and the overall life expectancy of the building. A curtain wall system keeps a building strong throughout the seasons.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS ARE ATTRACTIVE

Flexibility. Strength. Energy efficiency. Protection from weather damage. Color.
Color? How does color come into the picture? At Danpal, we regard performance and appearance as a match. If you buy a car, you’re looking at more than tires and miles per gallon, right? You’re also checking out its looks. Buildings are the same. They have a purpose and they have a visual appeal. A curtain wall system adds that extra something to your building’s image and you’ll enjoy the options that Danpal provides with regard to colors, textures, and finishes.

Curtain Wall Systems Provide Protection and Individuality for Your Building

What You Need to Know About Curtain Wall Systems

Danpal’s reputation has been so firmly established on the strength of our structural products that some people might not realize that we also produce curtain wall systems, which although not structural, have a lot to do with keeping your building in good condition. Like our other Danpal products, curtain wall systems have both a protective and an esthetic purpose. That’s because curtain wall systems are placed over your building exterior for that added layer of protection against weather damage. Installing a curtain wall system is a good idea, and we’ll tell you why.

Curtain Wall SystemsCurtain Wall Systems: A Building’s First Line of Defense

In order for a building to last, it has to be able to withstand the damaging effects of weather, which, day by day, inflicts heat, rain, wind, and snow upon the structure. When designing a building, architects pay a lot of attention to the best products that offer the most protection against the outdoor elements. We’re very proud to say that Danpal, because our curtain wall systems utilize microcell technology for its extremely high impact resistance, consistently comes out at the top of the list for delivering the protection that buildings need. So, while you’re inside, don’t worry when the rain pours, the wind howls, the snow falls, and the hail strikes, because your building is protected.

Installing Curtain Wall Systems for Added Security

Danpal’s curtain wall systems come with a double click locking seam, so that everything is secure and capable of handling a high-load resistance. It’s a simple but effective process that not only ensures the security of the curtain wall system, but also makes installations much quicker and much less cumbersome.

Lightweight Materials Make Curtain Wall Systems Easy to Work With

Danpal engineering has developed a material that is lightweight, flexible, and strong. The lightweight aspect of the curtain wall systems makes it easy to transport and work with, making the building process easier for everyone. The strength of the system is an inherent feature of Danpal products. Because the joints are concealed, the exterior remains flush so that it can be shaped to conform to the design.

Danpal Curtain Wall Systems Deliver Versatility of Appearance

Customization takes on an entirely new level of personalization when we’re talking about Danpal curtain wall systems. That’s because we offer so many different color options, along with finishes and special effects, that your curtain wall system will create exactly the image that you have in mind. The nature of construction requires a building to conform to certain codes, specifications and functions, but when it comes to color, the only limitation is your own imagination. We have options to keep it simple, if that’s what you prefer. Or, if your building design is intended to reflect a certain attitude, color is a wonderful way to be noticed. At Danpal, we regard color choices as an adventure. We have soothing, muted shades that will easily blend into the location of your building, along with bright, bold colors that will get noticed. We’ll work with whatever choice you make so that, in the end, the building communicates through its appearance and we want to help you deliver your message.
