Polycarbonate sheets: strong enought for today’s extreme weather

Doesn’t it seem as though, every time we turn on the news, we’re hearing about a new threat from the weather? If it’s not violent storms that subject an area to torrential downpours, it’s a terrible snowfall that has the power to paralyze a region. Sometimes it feels as though we’re entirely powerless against the fury of weather. Fortunately, Danpal has designed and manufactured products that can stand up to weather at its wildest. Our status as a leader in the building industry is a result of the emphasis that we place upon innovation, research, and development in creating materials that are stronger than weather. Polycarbonate sheets are one of those remarkable products that can reinforce a building with the stamina it needs to withstand the elements.

POLYCARBONATE SHEETS KEEP INSULATION DRY

POLYCARBONATE SHEETSThe Danpal Ventilated Rain System (VRS), which uses polycarbonate sheets, is one of the most effective ways to keep insulation dry so that moisture doesn’t weaken the building’s ability to use energy efficiently. VRS is designed with an air gap that provides natural ventilation. Insulation stays dry, the building stays moisture-free, and polycarbonate sheets defend the structure against weather.

Keeping insulation dry is one of the most important ways to protect a building. Damp moisture can lead to problems that begin with leaks and a loss of energy and can turn into structural stress and, ultimately, the possibility of building collapse. The damage isn’t merely confined to the building. Damp insulation creates an atmosphere in which mold thrives and once mold has found a home, it doesn’t want to leave. It leads to health problems for the occupants of a building, and if there’s someone who has asthma or allergies, they’ll feel the effects of mold very quickly. Damp insulation also leads to financial issues because you’re paying for energy that you aren’t using. It’s escaping outside and that’s bad for the environment. Dry insulation is the formula for a healthy building and healthy people.

POLYCARBONATE SHEETS: TWO DIFFERENT WAYS TO DELIVER ONE PHENOMENAL PRODUCT

Polycarbonate always delivers when it comes to strength and flexibility, but it also offers you a choice. Multiwall polycarbonate is a structured sheet with hollow air chambers. Solid polycarbonate, which is a clear, flat sheeting, resembles glass in appearance. Polycarbonate sheets are actually half as heavy as glass, but 200 times stronger. So if you want to use a product that looks like glass but doesn’t have its weaknesses, solid polycarbonate sheets are the choice for you.

POLYCARBONATE SHEETS, STRONG AND FLEXIBLE

Danpal’s years of expertise in research of development have put the company in the forefront of innovation. That’s how a product like polycarbonate came into existence. Imagine a product that’s virtually unbreakable, and yet so flexible that it bends. The larger the size of the polycarbonate sheet, the greater the radius of the bend. Polycarbonate is used to make windshields, security screens, moving machinery parts, and farm machinery. A larger polycarbonate sheet is ideal if you have an arching roof. Polycarbonate sheets are lightweight and easy to install, so you can understand why they’re the popular choice for architects.

Polycarbonate Sheets: Today’s Building Material Choice For Strength and Flexibility

Fifty years as leaders in the building industry have provided Danpal with a reputation for innovation and expertise. We operate on five continents so, in addition to our decades of experience, we have a global presence that enhances our ability to live up to our motto, Global Vision, Local Focus. As the market’s expectations change to include materials that are stronger, lighter, more energy efficient and easier to work with, Danpal has been in the forefront of the transformation in the industry. Our reputation as leaders in the manufacturing of building materials has been solidified by our commitment to cutting-edge products that meet customer expectations.

Not all companies have been able to keep up the pace of change that has resulted from technological advances, and not all of the products that were once popular in the industry have been able to maintain their edge. Polycarbonate sheets are one of the new products on the market; they are so strong, flexible and attractive that they are replacing more traditional building materials such as glass.

Polycarbonate Sheets Don’t Surrender To Weather

No matter what weather pattern we’re in, we can be sure that weather will continue to be a force with which to be reckoned. Snow, rain, wind, and hail haven’t changed. Fortunately, technology and efficiency have changed. Polycarbonate sheets, which are available in two different forms, are part of the technological innovation that is redefining how buildings are designed and built. You may choose multiwall polycarbonate, which is a structured sheet with hollow air chambers, or solid polycarbonate, which is a clear, flat sheeting that resembles glass in looks but is much stronger and lighter.

polycarbonate sheetsPolycarbonate Sheets Are Flexible

If a product is lightweight and easy to work with, as polycarbonate sheets are, it’s going to be popular with architects and clients. That’s because installation is going to be smoother as well, causing less disruption for the client and the workplace. When time is saved, money is saved. The flexibility of polycarbonate sheets has already won over clients who manufacture farming machinery, windshields, security screens, and moving machinery parts. Polycarbonate sheets actually bend, making them so much more versatile than glass. If you have an arching roof, a larger polycarbonate sheet is particularly well suited. The larger the size of the sheet, the greater is the bend’s radius.

Polycarbonate is hardened so that its strength is 200 times that of glass but only half as heavy. And yet, polycarbonate sheets are virtually unbreakable. It’s plain to see why architects choose polycarbonate sheets to work with.

The Danpal Ventilated Rain System (VRS) Uses Polycarbonate Sheets

Danpal’s Ventilated Rain System’s polycarbonate sheets keep insulation dry thanks to the air gap that provides natural ventilation. Keeping insulation dry is a vital consideration in the life span of a building because once insulation is compromised, so is the building, even if problems don’t show up immediately.

By using polycarbonate sheets, you’re giving your building all the protection that it needs in order to be able to fight off weather and prevent moisture from penetrating. You’re benefitting as well, because polycarbonate is one of the most popular materials in the industry.

Polycarbonate Standing Seam Panels: The Latest in Excellence and Innovation

Innovation is the Key to Excellence

Innovation in the building industry doesn’t happen by itself. It happens because certain companies have the foresight to perceive future trends and identify the technology that can bring those trends to fruition. The ultimate goal in research and development is to develop products that benefit the consumer, strengthen the industry, and do both without harming the environment in which we all live. One of those advances that has made such a transformation in the building industry is the appearance of polycarbonate standing seam panels, which have challenged all existing building materials because polycarbonate offers such a high standard in durability, variety and sheer quality.

The company that capitalized upon this innovation is Danpal. Danpal, the first company to develop the Danpalon® translucent panel standing seam system, is well known for its role in promoting the research and engineering that give us tomorrow’s next improvement in construction.
