RAINSCREEN CLADDING: A BUILDING’S BEST DEFENSE AGAINST MOISTURE

The next time it rains, take the time to look outside and notice how the raindrops hit your building or home. For us, rain is a temporary inconvenience that’s alleviated as soon as we get inside a building or a car. But for a building, rain is a relentless soaking that lasts as long as the shower or storm. It’s a good idea to provide as much protection as possible for your building, because rain can cause a tremendous amount of damage internally. Rainscreen cladding is one way to provide a structure with that level of protection because it offers a defensive barrier that keeps moisture from penetrating. If you want your building to last a long time without deterioration caused by weather damage, consider rainscreen cladding.

THE VERSATILITY OF RAINSCREEN CLADDING

In most regions of the globe, temperatures vary considerably from season to season. The balmy heat of a summer day in July might turn into temperatures that are below freezing when January arrives. Architectural designs are drawn with this range in mind, and building products are manufactured to deal with the swings in temperature. Rainscreen cladding can be made of different materials, including aluminum and galvanized steel. It’s also available in plastic, imitation stone, wood and brick.

Rainscreen CladdingRAINSCREEN CLADDING BY DANPAL

Danpal’s Ventilated Rainscreen System (VRS) is uniquely designed to keep weather from getting inside a building. With double-notched panels, VRS can mount a powerful defense against penetration by rain or snow that could otherwise allow moisture to invade the building’s interior space. VRS also protects the insulation itself with the natural ventilation created by an air gap that enables the system to work efficiently, keeping the insulation dry and moisture-free.

Rainscreen cladding has many advantages and one that clients find especially attractive is the fact that it doesn’t need a lot of maintenance or periodic service. It’s strong and durable. Danpal rainscreen cladding has another popular feature that makes it a favorite for clients: installation is easy. Because the connections can be made directly onto the support, additional structural support isn’t needed during the installation process.

KEEPING YOUR INSULATION DRY IS A PRIORITY FOR RAINSCREEN CLADDING

When we’re thinking about repair projects and getting a house ready for the seasons, we often fail to think about insulation. We pay attention to the obvious tasks that need to be done, like cleaning the gutters or making sure the windows don’t admit drafts, and these are all necessary things to do. But insulation should not be neglected. If you don’t have rainscreen cladding and moisture has been able to get inside your building, serious problems can arise. One problem is energy waste. If your insulation is wet, it can’t keep your heating and cooling systems operating efficiently. Energy that escapes outside is going to cost you money. Once moisture has found a niche within the interior of your home, it soon leads to the growth of mold, which will lead to health risks for the occupants.

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.

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.

Wall Cladding Secures Insulation from Moisture

The construction of a building is founded upon a simple goal: people inside the building should be comfortable and protected from the elements. Those elements need to be kept outside the building. The building itself must be able to withstand the punishment that nature dishes out but it must be able to do so without fanfare. The occupants within don’t want to worry about whether the rain is causing leakages, or the moisture has penetrated the insulation, or the hail has caused damaged. Danpal understands this philosophy and we support it. That’s why we develop building materials that do their job and do it right. That’s true with Danpal wall cladding, which is designed to make sure that insulation stays dry.

Wall Cladding Makes the Difference

Wall CladdingDanpal wall cladding is designed with an air gap which provides natural ventilation that uses a convective motion to keep the insulation dry. Because of our double-notching and connector-bound Microcell polycarbonate sheets, which are lighter in weight that traditional rainscreen cladding, create a shield against the external rain so that moisture cannot penetrate. Protecting your insulation is the first step in taking the precautions that are vital for the long life of your building.

Why Insulation Needs to Stay Dry

Today’s concern with energy efficiency reflects a greater awareness of how much the planet depends upon all of us to monitor our energy usage. Because buildings account for 40% of energy consumption, it’s especially important to ensure that the energy is being used as we intend. That means that we need to know that compromised insulation isn’t the culprit in allowing energy to escape from within. If it is, your energy bills are going to reflect that wasted energy. An attractive option for your wall cladding is Danpal’s Ventilated Rainscreen System, which has the Danpalon panel for complete insulation protection.
