Rainscreen cladding helps prevent mold from developing

We know when cold and flu season is upon us because we become very aware of how much contact we have with one another. We use hand sanitizer faithfully so that we keep our hands free of any germs we might up. But not all illnesses come from human contact. The structural equivalent of cold and flu season for a building is all year around, 365 days a year. Building health has a lot to do with human health. We spend a great deal of our time inside buildings; most of our day, in fact, is spent inside unless we have outdoor jobs. However, the buildings in which we live and work can have a direct impact on our health, particularly for anyone who has respiratory issues.

The real culprit isn’t the building itself but rather the damage that can take place if weather manages to invade the inside of the building. If dampness from snow or rain is able to compromise insulation, the results can lead to ill health for your building through the development of mold. And mold affects the people who live and work inside the structure. But Danpal rainscreen cladding can make the difference in how you keep your building healthy enough to avoid mold.

RAINSCREEN CLADDINGRAINSCREEN CLADDING RESISTS WEATHER DAMAGE.

We all know how weather affects us personally. A cold blustery day sees us wearing scarves and gloves along with our heavy coats. We’re searching for our umbrellas when there’s rain in the forecast. We can protect ourselves from the effects of weather, but what do buildings do? The external building may seem as if it’s impenetrable, but how can you be certain? If you choose to add rainscreen cladding to your building, you’re adding weather protection and peace of mind.

Keeping insulation dry is vital if the building is going to remain sturdy and healthy for those within. Leaks of any kind are a diagnosis that no building wants to have; a leak can weaken the structure and eventually cause serious problems that compromise the integrity of the building.

Rainscreen cladding, which is made of an outer panel, a ventilated cavity, and an inner panel, is protection from the damage caused by moisture. An air gap between the cladding and the building’s exterior nurtures a steady flow of air. Rain is also prevented from entering because of the overhangs and screens. Moisture stays out, and insulation stays dry.

RAINSCREEN CLADDING IS THE RX FOR A HEALTHY BUILDING

If you suffer from asthma or allergies, you’re already well aware of the harmful effects of mold. Health professionals warn us that mold is an ominous threat to people who are dealing with breathing issues. That’s why you need to make sure that the buildings in which you spend your days and nights are healthy, with dry insulation and no leaks.

KEEPING THE PLANET HEALTHY WITH RAINSCREEN CLADDING

The connection between wet insulation and respiratory ailments has another aspect that must be addressed. If insulation is damp, it’s unable to do its job effectively. That means using more energy to heat and cool a building. Wasted energy is an economic factor for us because it means that we’re paying for energy we aren’t using. But in these days when we’re all trying to do our part to shrink the size of our carbon footprint, we don’t want energy inefficiency to increase environmental concerns.

Façade materials add to a building’s performance

What are the things that we notice about the buildings where we work and sleep, shop, exercise and seek entertainment? Do they serve the function for which they are designed? Are they warm in the cold weather and cool in the hot weather? Is the lighting sufficient for our needs? Are they built with our comfort in mind? There are other things that we don’t notice immediately. We may not notice if they’re built out of sustainable materials or if they conform to the most current environmental standards. We are unlikely to notice if there is mold or dampness in parts of the structure where we don’t go. We might not always notice the behind-the-scenes concerns that are part of a building’s hidden performance.

But what’s the first thing that you notice about a building? You notice how it looks.

FAÇADE MATERIALS ACCENTUATE A BUILDING’S APPEAL

A traditional style of architecture for a building located in a trendy hot spot would seem out of place, just as a cutting-edge design would be ill-suited in a neighborhood of stately eighteenth century structures. Danpal’s façade materials allow a building to take on an appearance that can be customized to suit its environment, while adding marvelous color and texture options that give the structure a unique flavor. Lighting is an option that can be enhanced with façade materials. If you’d like to supplement the look of your building with depth to its perspective, you can layer different shades of color. Choosing from Danpal’s columns and brick stacks gives even more options. Design a building that people will notice by choosing façade materials.

FAÇADE MATERIALSFAÇADE MATERIALS LET LIGHT SHINE IN

Studies have shown that people, whether in the workplace or in their homes, feel better and are more productive when they are in an environment which adds natural light to the setting. But you don’t need a study to tell you that. You already know that you see better, for one thing, when natural light is available. You feel better; your mood improves and you benefit from an attitude that takes its cues from the uplifting atmosphere of natural light. Façade materials benefit from Danpal’s pioneering daylighting architecture, which is an architectural way to include sunshine as part of your decorating design.

STRENGH COMES WITH FAÇADE MATERIALS

Now that we’ve accounted for the many features of façade materials that you’ll notice in a building, it’s time to concentrate on what you might not notice right away, and that’s the strength. A building has to meet the expectations of its function; if it’s an office, a medical facility, a workplace or a residence, it conforms to the intended usage for which it was designed. But strength is a factor that contributes not only to the function, but also to the building’s stamina and life span. Danpal’s microcell technology has dramatically increased the strength of our building materials. That means that weather, one of the most powerful and potential damaging threats to a building’s wellbeing, is held at bay. That’s because our snap-lock connection system is designed to prevent snow, wind, hail and rain from invading your interior space. The impressive quality of our thermal insulation can do its job the right way, which allows your energy usage to perform the way it’s supposed to. Façade materials keep your insulation dry, which in turn keeps your energy usage efficient and your year-round temperature constant.

What you may not notice about a building is important. That’s why Danpal notices these things for you.

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.

Wall Cladding Keeps Insulation Dry and Free From Moisture

If you or someone in your home suffers from any kind of respiratory condition such as asthma, you’re already aware that mold is a health threat. But not everyone realizes that mold results when moisture, instead of being prevented from penetrating the exterior of a building, manages to make its way inside. Moisture is a threat to a building because it causes leaks, structural stress and even building collapse if the moisture advances to that point. Its danger as a health threat can be a silent, invisible menace because the building occupants may not realize immediately that their breathing problems or their allergies are the result of the mold that thrives in a moist environment. How can you protect the people who live or work in your building from the dangers of mold? Danpal wall cladding is a solution to the problem of moisture.

Wall CladdingKeeping The Insulation Healthy Keeps You Healthy

The simple formula for a healthy building is to keep the insulation dry. As long as the insulation is free from moisture, the building isn’t at risk for the development of mold and the building itself remains in good condition. But insulation, if it’s not protected, is vulnerable. Wall cladding is like a protective sheath that keeps the internal building dry because it protects the insulation.

We all know that weather is a potent force in the world of nature. Buildings, in order to withstand the forces of nature, must be equipped with a defense system that can handle pouring rain, wind gusts, heavy snowfall, pounding hail, and intense sunlight. When you give your building the protection of Danpal wall cladding, you’re giving the insulation the defense that it needs in order to remain free of moisture caused by leaks.

The Mechanics of Wall Cladding

You’ve heard a lot about Danpal’s microcell technology and you already know that it’s a strong, durable product capable of protecting insulation from moisture. The strength of the wall cladding’s connector-bound polycarbonate sheets creates a strong barrier to penetration by snow and rain. We use double notching so that the wall cladding is watertight and airtight. Our wall cladding is designed with an air gap; the cladding’s convective motion delivers natural ventilation. The end result of this air flow is dry insulation. Our Ventilated Rainscreen System (VRS) is the top-of-the-line wall cladding for the ultimate in insulation protection. No matter how wet, windy and cold it might be outside, you’ll stay dry and warm inside.

Easy Installation and Customization for Danpal Wall Cladding

Danpal’s goal is to develop products that deliver a superior performance, support the environment, and are easy to work with. Our wall cladding meets all these standards. We offer panels that can be customized up to the 12.0m standard length. Architects appreciate the creativity that customization offers; clients welcome the savings that come with our easy-to-install systems that don’t take a lot of time to put into place.
Give your building the protection it needs in order to last by installing wall cladding from Danpal.

Roofing Stands Tough Against Weather

With the rise of environmental consciousness has come a dynamic new outlook on the way we live, the foods we eat, the cars we drive and, last but not least, the buildings in which we live and work. At Danpal, we fulfill our purpose to develop cutting-edge building materials that support the environmental needs of the planet and meet the expectations of our clients. Not all companies regard their mission in this light but for us, the products that we create are designed to last. We believe that any product with a life span should accommodate the next generation of Earth’s occupants. Danpal’s plastic roofing is just one of the products in our line that reflects this awareness of Global Vision, Local Focus. That’s the Danpal motto and it’s the way we do business.

Danpal Plastic Roofing Partners With The Environment

Roofing may not seem like a topic that measures up to something as broad as environmental responsibility, but Danpal’s designers and engineers reflect the company philosophy as they develop our products. Roofing is the defense system that protects a building from the invading forces of nature. In that role, Danpal’s plastic roofing, because it’s designed to keep out moisture and drafts, is partnering with the environment so that the energy that’s used remains inside the building. There’s a lot that people don’t know about how effective plastic roofing is and we’re happy to explain why you should consider it for your roofing needs.

Plastic RoofingPlastic Roofing Supports Energy Efficiency

Buildings in developed countries are the source of about 40% of the energy usage in those respective nations. That’s why plastic roofing, which is so environmentally efficient, is the smart, savvy choice for today’s eco-minded clients. Keeping energy within the building is vital. That’s why we recommend our high-quality plastic roofing. It saves on energy usage by avoiding waste, and that saves money. Any building that’s made from low-quality materials isn’t going to last against the day-to-day buffeting that it receives from weather and that’s when energy efficiency is at risk. If moisture manages to penetrate a building, it’s only a matter of time before insulation is compromised and energy is lost. Not only will you be paying for the energy that you use, but you’re also paying for the energy that’s escaping. Danpal plastic roofing is designed to keep energy inside and weather outside.

Keeping Weather From Getting Inside Your Building

Part of the reason that plastic roofing is so effective at supporting energy efficiency within is that it’s so good at keeping weather outside. Nature is a powerful force and no matter in which region you live, it’s quite likely that you’ve experienced the elements. A thunderstorm, with its powerful winds and driving rain, lets us know that nature calls the shots. Or maybe it’s a furious winter storm that sends freezing temperatures, heavy snowfall, and gusts of wind that lets us know that we’re at nature’s mercy. We have the option of going indoors to escape the fury of weather but buildings have nowhere to go. It’s for that reason that they must be designed and built with the highest quality of products, like our plastic roofing.

Worry-Free Wall Cladding Keeps The Moisture Out

The next time you’re listening to the weather forecast, you might want to consider the state of your wall cladding. What, you wonder, does the daily weather have to do with wall cladding? Actually, a lot, especially if you don’t have wall cladding by Danpal. That’s because inferior cladding may not be able to provide the level of protection that a building’s insulation must have if it’s going to be able to perform at a satisfactory level. Insulation that’s been compromised is going to cost money over time because energy is escaping, forcing heating and cooling systems to work harder to maintain a consistent temperature. Lost energy is a major factor for environmental concerns. In most of the world’s IEA countries, buildings are blamed for the use of 40% of primary energy consumption. You can imagine what happens to that number if energy is being wasted.

But if you have Danpal wall cladding, you’re not worrying about the weather forecast because you know that, if it rains or snows, your insulation is safe and dry. Danpal wall cladding doesn’t let moisture penetrate. Danpal manufactures products that conform to high environmental standards in order to assist energy efficiency. If you have Danpal cladding, you don’t have to worry when you listen to the weather forecast. If it’s going to rain, take an umbrella. If snow is predicted, wear a warm coat. You don’t have to worry because Danpal has already taken care of it.

Wall Cladding

An air gap in Danpal wall cladding makes use of natural ventilation to keep the insulation dry. The convective motion behind the wall also keeps the insulation free from moisture and working efficiently so that moisture doesn’t develop. Water penetrates because of our exclusive double nothing. Connector-bound microcell polycarbonate panels keep your building leak-free and moisture-free. For full insulation protection, consider the merits of the Danpal Ventilated Rainscreen System. Keeping moisture out is so important for the long life of your building because once snow and rain are able to penetrate a building’s defenses and leave moisture behind, leaks will soon follow. Wall cladding is designed to keep out the leaks and the moisture so that problems don’t develop.

Danpal Wall Cladding Offers Esthetic Options

Danpal wall cladding is so easy to work with that it makes the installation process vastly simpler than it is for other wall cladding of traditional weight. Our panel is lightweight; it’s also customizable, up to 12.0m standard lengths. This feature, along with our great range of designs and colors to choose from, lets customers enjoy a level of personal choice that isn’t often found in the building industry.

Proof That Danpal Wall Cladding Is Superior

Danpal wall cladding is designed to do a better job of protecting insulation from weather. It’s energy efficient, saving you money and supporting the health of the planet. It’s customizable so that an architect can be satisfied in knowing that his design reflects his originality and creativity. It’s lightweight, easy to work with, and easy to install.

And when you have Danpal wall cladding, you aren’t alarmed by the weather forecast, because you already have all the protection you need for your building’s insulation.
