FAÇADE MATERIALS MAKE BUILDINGS BETTER, INSIDE AND OUT

An architect, when designing a building, is always thinking about the future. How will the building stand up to the elements? What kind of building materials should be used so that the structure can remain strong and functional for a long period of time? What are the regulations that must be observed in order for the building to be in compliance with federal codes? Is the building designed with a style that is going to suit the location? All of this needs to be considered before the building actually takes its physical form. Choosing a building material from a reliable manufacturer known for quality products is vitally important; the building is only as good as what it’s made of. That’s why architects choose Danpal for the building materials that represent quality. A building has to be strong enough to withstand the punishing effects of weather, and Danpal, with half a century of experience and knowledge, represents quality in today’s market. We design products that will take your buildings into the future because they’re built to last. Our façade materials are one of the ways that a building can enjoy a longer life span, because façade materials protect against weather.

Façade MaterialsFAÇADE MATERIALS ARE STRONG BECAUSE OF MICROCELL TECHNOLOGY

How do you design a product that’s strong enough to withstand the fury of snow and wind, the power of a rainstorm, the endless force of the sun, and the battering of hail? If you’re Danpal, you devote resources to your research and development team so that they will create innovative products that are capable of defending a building against weather. Our façade materials have a snap-lock connection system that effectively stops the outside elements from invading a building. The double-click locking seam delivers a higher load resistance. The cell structure of our façade materials is what makes superior thermal insulation possible, enabling the building to protect its internal workings from the peril of weather. UV protection keeps the sun’s harmful effects from causing damage.

DANPAL FAÇADE MATERIALS ARE EASY TO WORK WITH

You might think that something as strong as Danpal’s façade materials must be very heavy and cumbersome, but the exact opposite is true. Our façade materials are strong in function but light in weight. They’re flexible and easy to work with so that installation is quick and effortless. Saving time and money with Danpal’s façade materials is a smooth, smart process from beginning to end.

FAÇADE MATERIALS BRING DAYLIGHT TO YOUR BUILDING

Okay, so the building design is over and the installation is complete. Here comes the next question: how does it look? Danpal, a pioneer in daylighting architecture, has developed façade materials that can make natural light a feature of your indoor living and working spaces. You know how much easier it is to see with when you’re outside in daylight; now you can find out what it’s like to have that natural lighting at work inside. Natural light has benefits that extend beyond vison. Studies have proven that natural light enhances our mood; it promotes optimism and make us more productive. We feel better in natural light. Danpal façade materials can make it happen.

Plastic Roofing Supports Energy Efficiency

A lot of thought goes into the making of a building. The client has a certain notion of what the building needs to look like in order for it to fulfill its designated purpose. The architect develops the plans to take the building from an idea to a design. The construction crew uses tools and machines to bring the idea and the plans to fruition so that finally, after a great deal of time, effort, and thought, the building rises from the ground, ready to be put to use. If all has goes according to plan, the building will be a presence in the community, whether residential or commercial, for a long time. But there’s one simple thing that can sabotage that longevity. If the building’s insulation is not protected from the harmful effects of weather, the building will not last. Danpal plastic roofing, strong, sustainable, and popular, is also designed to provide protection for your insulation.

Plastic RoofingPROTECTION FROM WEATHER WITH PLASTIC ROOFING

Danpal plastic roofing is all about keeping the inside of a building safe and comfortable for its occupants. Our plastic roofing provides thermal insulation that reduces the transfer of heat. Thanks to this protective layer, thermal radiation is reflected. Our microcell technology improves heat insulation. Our plastic roofing is able to diffuse sunlight by means of a special coating that can prevent UV rays from causing harm to the interior or exterior building surfaces.

Hail is one of the most damaging of all the weather elements. But because plastic roofing is so strongly woven, hail bounces off the surface without leaving behind any damage. Plastic roofing is also able to withstand the other weather effects, like driving snow and heavy rains, that could otherwise cause damage to a building, particularly if moisture is able to penetrate the structural defenses and invade the interior space. Plastic roofing is designed to be more powerful than that weather that is attacking it.

WHY INSULATION MATTERS SO MUCH

The interior rooms of a building should be maintained at a consistent temperature so that they’re warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This consistency helps your heating and cooling systems from having to overwork. But if energy is escaping, those systems have to work much harder to maintain the desired temperature. In addition, wasted energy is harmful to the environment. Buildings in developed countries are known for being the source of 40% of the primary energy usage in those countries. Wasted energy prevents us from doing all that we can to maintain a sustainable lifestyle. Plastic roofing, with its emphasis on efficiency, supports sustainable practices that benefit the environment.

THE STRENGTH OF PLASTIC ROOFING

Danpal’s plastic roofing is made of aluminum and polycarbonate. Both those materials are very strong, designed to take a lot of punishment from the elements. With plastic roofing’s snap-on, interlocking, dry-glazed connectors, the finished product is a roof that’s both airtight and watertight. You won’t have to worry about the moisture from the rain or snow invading your space. Nor will you have to deal with drafts caused by the wind. Plastic roofing shelters a building’s occupants inside while, outside, it’s giving the building all the protection from weather that it needs.

Polycarbonate Sheets are a New Favorite in Building Design

You want the best possible materials for your building. As an architect, you recognize that as times change, so does client preference. As technology has developed new materials that provide higher quality, meeting environmental concerns has provided input into what kinds of products should be used in construction. Keeping on top of changes like this means that architects and others who are working in the building industry need to have resources that they can rely on. Danpal, which has been a leader in the building industry for half a century, is a company whose standards are as high as our dedication to innovation. Architects know that they can count on us for products that will help them build the best possible buildings. We have led the way in developing new products, like polycarbonate sheets, that have transformed the building industry because of their superior strength and performance.

HOW DANPAL’S VENTILATED RAIN SYSTEM USES POLYCARBONATE SHEETS

Danpal’s Ventilated Rain System maintains the company’s reputation for creating a product with high performance standards while at the same time giving a building an exterior that is esthetically pleasing. The insulation of the building benefits from the natural ventilation that results from the air gap in the panels, which are made of polycarbonate. The insulation remains dry and maintains its performance standards for the future. Polycarbonate sheets protect a building from the damage that weather can cause by insulating the structure internally. Protecting the insulation from the damage caused by adverse weather and the resulting leakages is one of the many ways in which polycarbonate sheets demonstrate their impressive ability to extend the life of a building.

Polycarbonate SheetsKNOW YOUR POLYCARBONATE

Polycarbonate sheets come in two different forms. Multiwall polycarbonate is a structural sheet with hollow air chambers. Solid polycarbonate is a clear, flat sheeting that looks like glass. Actually, polycarbonate is 200 times stronger than glass so that it’s better able to provide the kind of performance that clients expect.

Polycarbonate, which has been hardened to make it capable of withstanding high levels of resistance, is 200 times stronger than glass. It’s also much better at adapting to weather than glass is. We all know that weather tends to be unpredictable, so if you want the ultimate protection for your building, you’re going to choose polycarbonate sheets.

Unlike glass, polycarbonate is easy to work with. Its flexibility and easy installation make it the preferred choice for architects when they are making their choices of building materials. Because polycarbonate has been hardened to make it more resistant, it’s also much harder to scratch. Its flexibility makes it the building material of choice for windshields, security screens, farming machinery and as a guard in moving machinery parts.

THE ESTHETIC ADVANTAGES OF POLYCARBONATE SHEETS

The variety of colors that polycarbonate sheets are available in makes this a popular choice for architects and clients. Color brightens up a building and makes it a focal point in the neighborhood. Polycarbonate sheets support the famed daylight architecture that is a feature of the Danpal company.
