The Polycarbonate Standing Seam Panel: An Advance in Architectural Technology
The arrival of the standing seam system in the building industry is an affirmation of the visionary role that Danpal plays in architectural technologies. Danpal was the first company to develop the Danpalon® translucent panel standing seam system. For more than three decades, the systems created by Danpal have been on display in a versatile array of architectural endeavors including projects involving transportation, education, health, sports, high-tech industries and other commercial enterprises. As the industry responds to clients who want to design buildings by using materials that are energy efficient, environmentally safe, flexible and easy to work with, Danpal has proven to be a leader in developing the products that meet all of these needs. Polycarbonate, perhaps the most exciting material on the market today, has demonstrated its appeal for the architects who work with it and the members of the public who work, live and occupy the various structures that have been transformed by polycarbonate standing seam panels.
Ever since the new and improved polycarbonate panels entered the building scene, other building materials, such as glass and metal U-panels, have struggled to keep up. But architects have found that the polycarbonate standing seam panels leave the competition behind. Maybe it’s because this dynamic new material is so superior in its quality, durability, and versatility that more traditional products can’t measure up.
Polycarbonate Standing Seam Panels, the Heart of the Danpalon System
It’s no wonder that for architects, polycarbonate standing seam panels have become a favorite for their projects. The system consists of extruded translucent panels and a vertical standing seam at each end of the panel. The panels are interlocked with a snap-on connector and the stainless steel retention clips are concealed. Fully assembled, the system is free-floating, with each component able to expand or contract at its own rate. This eliminates “waves” and deflections while maintaining the structural properties of the material. For architects and their clients the world over, the technical superiority of the polycarbonate standing seam panel is a chance to create buildings that combine Danpal’s renowned quality and creativity.
Polycarbonate Standing Seam Panels Make a Creative Statement
Professionals prize the freedom that is theirs as a result of the versatile polycarbonate standing seam panel system of building. No longer confined by the limitations of traditional building materials like metal U-panels or glass, architects have discovered that by blending the strength and durability of polycarbonate with Danpal’s brilliant palette of color choices, there are no limits to their design options.
By pioneering daylighting techniques in architecture, Danpal has already raised the standard for creativity, developing products that are not only famous for their incredible quality and creativity, but also for incorporating natural light into the design. Polycarbonate is a material that surrenders nothing in toughness or energy efficiency while offering the tools that provide the most effective light sources. No matter what choice is preferred, the freedom to bring light and color into the mix allows a higher level of creative opportunity.
