Plastic Roofing Brings Strength and Light to Your Building Project

Danpal’s Options for Plastic Roofing

For over 50 years, Danpal has been at the forefront of creating and installing innovative roofing systems that offer optimal thermal and solar comfort. Giving you the option of choosing from skylights, roofs, facades and more, Danpal is the choice for your roofing solutions.

Danpal roofing can be installed above and below various different kinds of buildings. The plastic roofing uses snap-on interlocking dry-glazed connectors that are made from either aluminum or polycarbonate. With plastic roofing, a building has the benefits of superior weather protection, energy efficiency, and an attractive appearance.

Plastic Roofing and Weather

You might think that the weather has it in for roofs. After all, the roof is the first target for rain, snow, and all the rough elements that pour out of the sky like they’re sent on an aerial mission to destroy. That just means that the roofing you select needs to be strong enough to handle the attack. Plastic roofing, thanks to the overall strength and quality of its design, as well as the quality of the materials that are used to create the roofing system, can be relied upon to withstand weather and offer high-impact resistance.

Plastic roofing also offers protection against the effects of the sun. We don’t always consider the effects of sunlight on a building, but Danpal’s plastic roofing panels offer UV protection so that the roof remains in good condition for a longer period of time.

The Benefits of Light with Plastic Roofing

The roof on top of a building has a powerful effect on everything that’s underneath, and this is where the combination of plastic roofing and light works to such a winning advantage. Every space in the building needs light in order to be fully functional. Plastic roofing allows the light to enter, balancing it so that it’s emitted in just the right amounts. Natural light adds much to our living space, and it also provides a boost for us as well.

Easy Installation of Plastic Roofing

Plastic roofing is light in weight and won’t put undue pressure on the structure. Working with lightweight materials makes installation smooth and easy, saving time and money because the work happens so effortlessly. But don’t worry; lightweight doesn’t mean weak. Plastic roofing is strong.

Lookin’ Good with Plastic Roofing

Once the roofing is in place, the visual effect is stunning. Much of that is due to the transparent materials that are used, which provide the ideal balance of light that works so well for interior space. Because of Danpal’s amazing array of colors, finishes, aspects and spectacular effects, you’ll have no trouble finding just the right look to release the building’s creative image.

Plastic Roofing is a Plus for the Environment

Danpal, committed to thinking both globally and locally, maintains a high regard for sustainability and protecting the environment. That’s why indoor air quality is a high priority for the company. What affects Danpal customers affects the world, because Danpal, which operates on five continents, knows that the globe is home to all of us.

Roofing systems start a building out right

Weather, which comes right out of the sky, is at the top. Next in line is the roof. Those of us down below react to the weather every day, but before it strikes us, it’s already hitting the roof. Whether the sky is shooting down hail that hits like bullets, or pouring rain that pounds upon the surface of the roof, or sending down flakes of snow that accumulate, there’s no way to escape the weather. That’s why building material manufacturers pay so much attention to the products that we develop; we know that a flawed roofing system is going to immediately affect the performance of your building. At Danpal, we’ve had half a century to study the problems that weather causes and that’s given us more than fifty years to develop high-quality roofing systems which are strong enough to stand up to energy and lightweight enough to be easy to work with.

ROOFING SYSTEMSROOFING SYSTEMS KEEP OUT WEATHER

It’s really pretty obvious. A roof is the lid of the building. Its role is to keep the occupants and contents inside free from experiencing the weather that is beating down upon it throughout the seasons. As long as a roof is watertight and airtight, you can be confident that it’s doing its job in keeping drafts and moisture out. And don’t forget sunlight—heat, and sun can also damage a roof, which is why we offer co-extruded UV protection for our roofing systems. For the traditional weather threats posed by rain, snow, hail, and wind, Danpal has developed a double-tooth, grip-lock connection that shuts out weather and enhances thermal protection inside to keep your building’s insulation dry.

R U AWARE OF YOUR ROOFING SYSTEM’S “R” and “U” VALUES?

One of the ways that the construction industry has changed over the past five decades has been in response to environmental concerns. As new regulations were passed that required the building industry to develop products that don’t harm the environment, Danpal invested in research and development to advance the manufacturing of sustainable products. R-values are the resistance to the heat flow; the higher the R-value, the greater is the resistance and the insulation value. The U-values represent the amount of heat that escapes; the lower the U-value, the slower the rate of heat flow and consequently, the quality of the insulation is better.

“U” and “R” values have improved during this time as environmental awareness has become a way of life for consumers and businesses alike.

ROOFING SYSTEMS THAT SUPPORT ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Airtight and watertight means that insulation can do the work it’s designed to do without suffering a loss of performance due to leaks and drafts. Cooling and heating systems maintain a consistent temperature throughout the year with dry insulation. As populations grow and nations become more industrially advanced, we all have an obligation to make certain that the building products that we use do not compromise the health of the planet. Energy efficiency is a benefit to everyone. It costs less for the consumers because you’re only paying for the energy that you use; it helps the planet because energy isn’t wasted and carbon footprints remain smaller.

Weather is tough, but it can’t defeat the performance of a Danpal roofing system.

Danpal Roofing Systems Strengthen a Building’s Protection From Weather

There’s a reason why roofing is a system. It’s not just a slab thrown over the top of a building to keep out the elements. The job of a roofing system is much more intricate than that, so that your building is shielded from weather damage and moisture from top to bottom. When you choose Danpal, you’re getting a roofing system that is 100% leakproof, watertight and airtight; provides a superior thermal performance; is lightweight and easy to work to use, with cold bending of panels on site; has high-impact resistance against hail; and provides a dazzling appearance. The roofing systems confirm what the building industry has known for a long time: Danpal quality and Danpal innovation form the foundation of the cutting-edge reputation that makes us a leader in the field.

DANPAL’S MODULAR GLAZING ROOFING SYSTEMS

With a range of snap-on interlocking dry-glazed connectors that are made of polycarbonate or aluminum, Danpal had developed roofing systems delivering a level of flexibility that is a marvel in the engineering and design spheres of building. Danpal innovation has created roofing systems that are available in a variety of different designs and can be installed above or below various structures, depending on the engineering and design requirements.

ROOFING SYSTEMSROOFING SYSTEMS NEED TO STAND UP TO WEATHER

Weather is always going to be a factor in the life of a building. But the important thing for architects is to recognize this from the very beginning. Knowing the kind of weather that a building will have to face, depending on its geographical location, allows the architect to tailor his or her design requirements accordingly. Lots of snow and rain in your region? Protecting the insulation from moisture is going to be a primary responsibility of your roofing system. Hail? Remember to make sure that your roofing system includes high impact resistance. Sunshine all day long? What about UV protection for the extended life of the building? A roofing system, wherever it’s going to be doing its job, is facing weather every day. Choose a roofing system that can meet the weather challenge.

MICROCELL TECHNOLOGY ENSURES LONG-TERM SERVICE CAPABILITIES FOR YOUR ROOFING SYSTEM

Microcell technology has been proven to be a roofing system’s best defense against the elements. The Danpalon panel, with tight spacing between the ribs, offers improved “U” and “R” values for improved energy efficiency. There’s resistance to damage from hail, high winds, and snow, thanks to the roofing system’s double-tooth, grip-lock connection and extrusion with standing seams. Our weather protection is designed for all seasons; the sunshine is also a threat to a building, but our roofing system provides co-extruded UV protection.

ROOFING SYSTEMS PROTECT PEOPLE AND BUILDINGS FROM MOISTURE

Moisture is bad for a building, but it’s not a friend to the occupants inside the building, either. Once moisture has found a home inside a structure, it’s not long before mold shows up. Mold is particularly harmful for people who suffer from respiratory ailments such as allergies or asthma, but it’s unhealthy for everyone. Choosing a Danpal roofing system is the smart way to keep a building and its occupants healthier.

Danpal’s Roofing Systems Lead The Way

You might think that your roofing system is solely confined to the building beneath it, and that all roofing systems are the same. But at Danpal, where our motto is Global Vision, Local Focus, we know that roofing systems are all part of the structural environment of our world. At Danpal, we design products and materials that provide the best protection a roofing system can deliver for your building. Our products are also developed with the goal of protecting the environment. This twofold approach may be unique in the building industry, but it’s how we do business.

Roofing Systems Stand Up Against Weather Damage

Your roof is the first point of contact when weather strikes, and just as frontline troops bear the brunt of an attack, a roofing system is where the battle between weather and your building begins. Remember that, while weather can deliver a varied assault that consists of scorching sunlight, or pouring rain, damaging winds or freezing snow, a building must be able to withstand all of these different weather forces while using the same, unchanging defense. Your roofing system has to be able to keep the different manifestations of weather from penetrating the inside of the building.

Danpal roofing systems, with their double-tooth, grip-lock connection, have the strength and endurance to resist the hail, winds, rain and snow that attack it. Outside of the building, a battle is raging, but your roofing system has the means to defeat the foe. Inside, you’re dry and comfortable.

Roofing SystemsRegulations and Your Roofing System

The roofing system’s role in the mission to protect the environment has become much more proactive since stricter regulations have been imposed by federal governments. Those regulations determine the choices that are available in adhesives, sealants, and coatings, and they’re a direct result of greater awareness of how our role as stewards of the environment decides what products are safe to use. The R-value of a material is the measure of its resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the better the insulating power of the material. The “R” values of roofing insulation have almost tripled in recent decades, showing how technological advances, combined with today’s tougher standards, have redesigned roofing systems that don’t hurt the environment.

Danpal has a business presence on five continents, making us aware firsthand of the fragility of the land upon which we live. That awareness is a driving force in our commitment to serve our customers with products that meet their needs and don’t inflict damage on the planet. It’s important to remember, when making your building material choices, that if you buy quality products, you’ll end up with a quality performance from your roofing system. It might be tempting to purchase cheaper products of inferior quality, but if you do, you’re merely postponing problems. Those are the kinds of problems that lead to repairs, which are going to end up costing much more money in a short time. When selecting the roofing system that will last, you benefit from opting for quality and superior performance. The results will save you money.

Danpal Roofing Systems Keep Weather Away From Insulation

Danpal’s motto, Global Vision, Local Focus, explains a lot about how the company does business. They’re leaders in the building industry but they never forget that buildings are for people to use and to live in. Nor do they forget that a building and the people who occupy it are part of a much larger network of human beings who all depend upon the environment in which we all live. With that perspective, it’s easy to understand why Danpal has never been content during its half-century of existence, to just maintain the status quo. At Danpal, research and development are always underway to find ways to make even better products that meet customers’ needs and protect the environment. That concern is part of the reason that Danpal roofing systems are so highly regarded in the industry.

DANPAL ROOFINGROOFING SYSTEMS THAT IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE

That might sound like a lot to ask of a roofing system, but for Danpal, buildings exist to serve the people who live and work in them. One of the ways that a Danpal roofing system improves the quality of life is because of the way it incorporates natural light into the interior of the building. Danpal has pioneered the innovative concept of daylighting architecture and with that innovation, buildings feature natural light. Natural light is important for everyone and having it inside a building is another way that the roofing system enhances the quality of life for the people who occupy it. The workspace nurtures a more productive environment for the occupants both in terms of their tasks and their wellbeing.

A ROOFING SYSTEM THAT PROTECTS INSULATION

The key factor in your building’s performance is maintaining the integrity of its insulation. If weather invades and moisture manages to penetrate the exterior of your building, the result is a reduction in the insulation of the insulation, a loss of energy efficiency, the threat of mold and the potential collapse of the building. When you consider all the things that could happen if insulation is compromised, it’s easy to understand why Danpal roofing systems are so adept at protecting it. The panels in a Danpal roofing system have a unique cell structure that enables them to deliver more efficient thermal insulation. This improved efficiency is confirmed by the improved “U” and “R” values.

HOW DANPAL ROOFING SYSTEMS WORK

If weather were easier to get along with, roofing systems could relax. But as long as the skies open up to release torrential downpours or blinding snowstorms, hail and winds, roofing systems must be vigilant. Fortunately for buildings, Danpal roofing systems are made with microcell technology. The microcell structure offers high resistance to impact, standing seams, and a double-tooth grip lock connection. That’s the kind of force that’s required for a roofing system to prevail against weather. The roofing system’s Danpalon panels are designed to maintain the integrity of the roof for well into the future because of their co-extended UV protection.

There’s less aggravation when it comes to working with and installing a Danpal roofing system. Because the system uses snap-on, dry-glazed connectors made of aluminum or polycarbonate, they’re light in weight and flexible. The ease of installation means that less time has to be spent in the process, something that clients will appreciate because it means there’s less inconvenience involved.

Danpal’s Roofing Systems Are Built To Last

When choosing a roofing system, don’t forget to consider the life span that you want your building to have. A roofing system is a key component in predicting a building’s length of life because the roofing system is so important in protecting the interior of a structure from the threat of weather damage. Danpal boasts roofing systems that are airtight and watertight and 100% leakproof. They’re lightweight and easy to install. They deliver a superior thermal performance, have high-impact resistance, and show off an impressive visual appearance. Our roofing systems have transparency and tonal qualities, flexibility, and a balance of light and thermal dynamics that’s superior in function. We’re eager to tell you more about our Danpal roofing systems and we know you’ll like what you’re hearing.

roofing systemRoofing Systems That Deliver Daylight

You might not expect a roof to be a primary source of natural light, but that’s because you may not know that Danpal is a pioneer in the art of daylighting techniques. The ribs of our roofing are made with tight spacing; this allows an impressive quality of light to come in, altering the appearance and improving the atmosphere of your internal building.

How Danpal Roofing Systems Work

Danpal roofing is a dry-glazed translucent system that can be installed either above or below different types of structures, depending upon the specific engineering and design requirements. The dry-glazed connectors are made of polycarbonate or aluminum, both renowned for their strength. Danpal’s Microcell technology is specifically designed to resist weather over the long term. On a day-to-day basis, a roofing system has to be able to take a beating because weather never lets up. It’s always doing something, and quite often, weather is doing something that’s going to lead to trouble in the future if your roofing system isn’t capable of preventing the damage. Regardless of whether your building is going to be located in a rain-drenched region or a place where winter deals out punishing snow and cold, Danpal roofing systems are ready for whatever comes out of the sky.

You can thank our Danpalon panels for strength that surpasses the ordinary roofing system’s ability to keep weather out. Because of this, the thermal insulation renders more efficiency with better “U” and “R” values. The long life that’s so important for a building is supported by the double-tooth connections that are particularly effective against weather.

Stricter regulations and a stronger adherence to environmental standards have had an effect on roofing. The “R” values of roofing insulation have almost tripled in recent decades. It’s a pleasure to notice how much of an effect we can have when we all work together on behalf of our planet. In the long run, quality makes the difference and that’s where Danpal stands out.

We don’t manufacture cheap, poorly made products. We’ve been in business for half a century and maybe that’s way longevity is so important to us. We understand that buildings should be built to last. That’s the way we make our products.

Danpal’s Roofing Systems Start At The Top

Any architect will tell you that sitting down to design a building means having one eye on the function of the structure and the other eye on the map. Where a building is located has a lot to do with the choice of materials that will be used in construction and this is particularly true with roofing systems. Danpal, which has been in business for over half a century, knows a lot about the difference that quality products make in the life span of a building. And, since we have a presence on five continents, we also know a few things about geography.

Where In The World Is My Building Going to Be?

Roofing SystemGeography is both local and global and that also works well with the Danpal philosophy. If you are designing a building for a hot dry climate, you’ll choose a different roofing system than you’d select if you’re building for a place where it rains a lot. You’re also building for a neighborhood, so if the other buildings in the area are designed in a particular style, you’re going to want to match the theme.

Wherever you’re building, you want to make sure that your roofing system is made with the highest quality materials. You have a dream and your client has a budget. Bringing those two together to create a structure that fulfills its function and enhances the landscape doesn’t have to be a struggle. Start at the top: start with the right roofing system.

Roofing Systems are Weather Warriors

Even without the geography lesson, we know that weather, wherever you live, has to be reckoned with. Weather strikes a roof first and that’s why a roofing system, which protects the structure below it, must be designed so that it can stand up against the dominant weather of the region. A roofing system needs to be able to multi-task: strong enough to prevent leakage from rain and snow, durable enough to resist high winds, and sturdy enough to withstand hail.

Quality Is The Smart Budget Decision

Sometimes people think that if they cut corners on materials, they’re saving money. Our experts at Danpal can tell you that, if you choose materials of lesser quality for your roofing system, you’ll literally pay the price before too long. Poor quality materials aren’t strong enough to give a roofing system the resistance to weather that a building needs in order to remain in good condition for a long time. Your roofing system represents a substantial investment of time, labor, and money. Doing it right the first time avoids spending more money later to do what should have been done in the first place.

Fortunately, Danpal has been in the forefront of research and development to create high-quality materials for a better, longer-lasting roofing system. The company’s talented engineers and design experts have been at the foundation of what has made Danpal a state-of-the-art leader in roofing systems.

If you have questions about roofing systems, please contact us. We have skilled people on staff who will be able to help you make the right choice for the roofing system that’s ideal for your building.
