What Sets Danpal’s VRS Exterior Wall Cladding Ahead of the Rest?

Exterior wall cladding is an excellent option to consider when renovating or upgrading your existing building. There are multiple reasons to upgrade a building when the time comes for scheduled renovation. Often, the structure has suffered severe weathering and no longer has the appeal it once had. The building façade might have become dated since its original design was in vogue, or perhaps the building serves a completely different purpose to that which it was originally intended.

This is when an exterior wall cladding solution, becomes the option of choice to refresh and uplift the buildings overall appearance. There are, however, many options currently in the market that appear to offer a suitable system for this purpose. So how can we differentiate between all these cladding materials and systems, in order to make the right choice? Danpal had put a lot of thought into this question, during the development of the Danpal VRS cladding solution. The purpose behind the VRS cladding solution, was not just to create another aesthetically pleasing cladding option for the market. Rather, it was to introduce a new concept, where equal consideration is given to both the performance and aesthetic aspects of the intended cladding.

One of the more important variables which are often overlooked, is the impact of the added weight from the new exterior wall cladding that is to be fitted to the existing structure. Danpal recognized this concern as an opportunity to develop a system which, would alleviate the problem completely. The answer was to fully integrate our lightweight Danpalon multicell panel within the cladding system. This development created a solution that is incredibly strong, durable but also lightweight. How lightweight? Up to 10 x lighter than some of the other more common cladding materials used in the industry. From a structural engineering perspective, the Danpal VRS cladding solution can be rated as adding no additional weight to the building.

Traditionally, wall cladding options already used in the market, have primarily offered the building an aesthetic upgrade, but have done very little for thermal performance or protection against weather conditions. With the modern cityscape being subjected to pollution and a harsh micro-climate, the building’s exterior is challenged on a daily basis. The solution for this, is to install a fully weather-proof exterior wall cladding system, which is able to both protect and extend the lifespan of the building’s exterior. Danpal’s answer, is a system which delivers a dry mechanical seal against the elements and is also installed proud of the exterior walls, in doing so – creating an airgap.

Danpal VRS Cladding Solution

Our Danpal VRS cladding solution has been specifically designed to allow for the natural circulation of air, via an updraft effect created between the existing wall and our Danpalon panel cladding material. This free movement of air, along with the use of our multicell Danpalon panels, is a key element in thermally insulating the existing building. By this unique process, our VRS external wall cladding system, is able to assist in modulating the temperature of the structure. Ultimately by doing so, contributing to the reduction of the monthly running costs of any existing HVAC systems.

At Danpal, we also understand the need for building envelope systems to be eye-catching and visually appealing. Over the last 30 years of development, Danpal has introduced an extensive range of Danpalon microcell polycarbonate panels. Our Danpalon panels are offered in a range of colours and finishes, unmatched by any other wall cladding manufacturer. We have developed panels with a metallic finish, a completely opaque colour range and a translucent colour range with varying degrees of opacity. Our extensive selection of options allows for unprecedented lighting effects and a visual aesthetic completely unique to a Danpal solution. This all translates to a VRS cladding solution, with all the aesthetic elements necessary to take your upgrade to the next level.

Any exterior wall cladding system must offer quality guarantees in both its manufacturing and performance. Danpal is no exception, which is why you can rely on our ISO 9001 and 14001 accredited production facilities. We manufacture all our building envelope systems in-house, which allows for the strictest levels of quality control to be applied. During manufacturing, we hot stamp all or Danpalon panels with a unique serial number, allowing us to keep track on the performance of any panel used around the world. This helps ensure, that when you install Danpal VRS exterior wall cladding on your building, our international 10 year warranty has you covered.

How Danpal Makes a Lightweight Curtain Wall Possible

The concept of a curtain wall in architecture dates back to defensive walls used to protect castles. In modern times, however, a curtain wall is a term that refers to non-structural exterior walls, which protect the interior space of a building from the elements. Since the walls are non-structural, there is an opportunity to use lighter-weight building materials. These exterior walls are designed to span multiple floors, which allows for a contemporary modern finish.

Curtain Wall Façade Systems

As modern buildings have grown in stature, curtain wall façade systems have been engineered, so as to accommodate these new heights. With the trend toward designing multiple-story buildings being the norm, highly developed systems are highly sought after. These curtain wall envelopes, traditionally rely on the glass as a medium for transmitting natural daylight into a building. The glass panes used within the curtain wall are held in place with the use of hefty aluminum framing systems. Unfortunately, this has the potential to add a significant amount of unwanted weight to the overall structure. Even though this type of curtain wall system is considered lightweight when compared to structural loadbearing exterior walls, Danpal has taken the concept a step further. Danpal has addressed this concern by integrating its lightweight Danpalon microcell panels within more advanced Danpal building envelope systems.

It is now possible to have a curtain wall type translucent building façade that is lightweight, weatherproof, offers solar control, thermal balance, and has aesthetic appeal. Danpal’s solution-driven systems include the Danpatherm system, which provides an industry-unique, double wall unitized cassette structure, delivering exceptional U-Value performance. In comparison, the Danpal Controlite system was developed to adapt to a wide range of solar conditions, automatically adjusting the amount of incoming daylight, to a set LUX level. These advanced Danpal curtain wall systems allow for a greener building envelope solution. This is an important aspect to consider, especially with SANS building regulations defining acceptable energy efficiency guidelines.

Danpal Curtain Wall Façade System

By installing a Danpal curtain wall façade system, you also remove the need for including an exterior louver system. This is a great benefit, as it allows for the original design concept of clean lines to dominate the building’s exterior facade. Removing this unwanted clutter, will further reduce the weight of the building envelope and simplify the construction process. Having a clean curtain wall, clear of added shading systems, will result in the ability of the building’s façade to transmit more natural daylight to the interior. More natural light translates into energy savings and the creation of higher-quality interior spaces. This can only be accomplished however if the curtain wall is able to effectively mitigate unwanted heat gain. This in particular, is considered a strength of any Danpal façade system, as our Danpalon microcell panels have been engineered to limit excessive solar heat gain.

Danpal has submitted our building envelope solutions to various international regulatory bodies for rigorous testing. In doing so, we have attained certification on all major performance aspects pertaining to our systems. Danpal’s solutions can confidently perform under the toughest of weather conditions. Our systems have been certified against solar degradation, thanks to our advanced co-extrusion technology, which embeds UV protection directly into the surface of the Danpalon panel. We can show that our Danpalon microcell panels deliver an effective 25-year lifespan, during which, your building is protected against the elements. With a Danpalon panel-based system in place, protection against the harsh African sun is guaranteed!

The current trend for the building envelope has been to move away from completely translucent curtain wall systems. Architects are designing exteriors that grab attention and have a greater visual impact on the viewer. Fortunately, over the last 30 years, Danpal has developed a range of constantly evolving color and finish options. Our Danpalon microcell panels are extruded in a wide range of both opaque and translucent colours. Added to this, are advanced finishes such as metallic, reflective, low-e and Softlite. When combined, our Danpal systems offer in a stunning variety of visual aesthetics, unmatched in the industry. We can take this a step further, and customise the colour of our Danpalon panel either for light transmission or purely for the design concept intended by the architect.

Danpal has taken the initial concept of a curtain wall, and developed it further still. When compared to a Danpal solution, any traditional curtain wall system that was once considered to be lightweight, is now downright overweight. All Danpal systems once correctly installed, are maintenance free and under warranty. Our solutions are based on encouraging maximum natural daylight into the building interior whilst providing solar and thermal balance. Our range of colour and finish options are unparalleled, giving architectural teams the ability to design freely and to produce buildings that make a bold statement. Ultimately, Danpal has taken the initiative and the moved the curtain wall industry forward in a brave new direction.

Wall Cladding Is Today’s Answer To Weather

There’s a learning curve for the building industry. We learn what our customers want in their living and working spaces so that we can provide the materials that architects need to make that vision a reality. But at Danpal, we know that we can’t live in the moment. We always have to be looking to the future. What materials are going to last longer? What materials are the most sustainable? Which materials will support environmental concerns? What materials can withstand the harsh weather? What materials will give a building its most attractive appearance?

We’ve been in business for three decades and at Danpal, we know that the learning never stops. That’s why we invest in research and development, and that’s why our wall cladding is such a reliable way of protecting a building from the threats that weather poses in this era of climate change.


Before the continents formed, before dinosaurs walked the earth, before human beings first learned how to make fire, there was the weather. For primitive humans, the weather was a force as powerful as an army, one that could not be controlled or placated. They had to learn to adapt to weather, but the weather has never had to adapt to our species. As human beings advanced in learning and skills, they learned how to build stronger, more sophisticated structures that provided shelter from the elements. But the weather still held the power. Danpal won’t claim that we’ve figured out how to master snow, rain, sleet, hail, wind or even heat; instead, we’ve concentrated on making buildings that are more weather resistant.


Ancient human beings didn’t have research and development teams capable of exploring innovative ways of advancing civilization. They were busy just trying to survive. No one knows how long it might have taken to create the wheel or fashion a spear, but we know they didn’t have a laboratory to work in. Now, however, we have microcell technology, with connector-bound polycarbonate panels to make a building watertight because of our double notching. The convective motion of the air gap uses natural ventilation to improve energy efficiency by protecting the insulation.


Our primitive ancestors weren’t worried about the effects of climate change on their environment. But human beings today can’t afford that luxury; we know that if we fail to treat the planet with care, Earth will suffer. Wall cladding is an effective, attractive means of promoting energy efficiency. Keeping energy inside where it belongs supports a living environment that uses heating and cooling wisely. The internal temperature of your living and working spaces should be consistent. If you have to change the temperature inside because it seems too hot or too cold, and you’re paying more in your utility bills, you’ll want to check your insulation to make sure that it hasn’t been compromised by moisture. Danpal wall cladding is the perfect way to add that protective measure to your structure. You’ll be saving the planet while you save money!

Cladding Outside, Dry Insulation Inside

These days, listening to a weather report from any point on the globe can be alarming. Sure, we’ve always had weather, but the weather we’re having today isn’t the same as what we experienced years ago. Monsoons in India that are so severe villages have to be evacuated; wildfires in California that are so deadly entire towns are wiped out; droughts that dry up rivers and floods that ruin a harvest.

No matter where you are, there’s some form of weather that’s going to make its presence known. The weather might be beyond our control, but at Danpal, we believe that the buildings in which we live and work need to be designed so that they can stand up to weather because the weather doesn’t have to be catastrophic to create problems. If weather manages to invade your building and leave moisture behind, you’re going to have to make repairs before that little bit of mold turns into a crisis that strikes at both the structure and the health of the people inside. We recommend cladding, which is a way for you to protect your building so that moisture can’t penetrate.


Everyone has seen the images of a community after a tornado has struck, or a hurricane has passed through. Buildings uprooted as if they were made out of cardboard, vehicles tossed into trees by the force of the wind, household goods floating along the river that didn’t exist before. But the structural damage that weather can cause can start out so small that it’s almost invisible. What if a small bit of moisture gets the building insulation wet?

Eventually, a leak forms. You may think that it’s a small leak, one that’s handled by putting a pail underneath the spot where it drips. But the water that came inside is affecting the building itself and over the expanse of time, if not attended to, that leak can compromise the structural integrity of the building. Danpal’s cladding, which protects a building from the invasion of moisture, can also protect it from the risk of damage caused by mold.


Never mind the risk caused by cold and flu season; we’re all aware of those and that’s why many of us line up for flu shots when the cold weather is on the way. But moisture is the health factor that you may not even think about; you may not even be aware that it’s in your house. Once the insulation has taken in moisture, mold has found its dream house.

Mold will grow and thrive, causing health problems for people. The growth of mold is particularly harmful for people who suffer from allergies or respiratory conditions such as asthma. Cladding is designed to keep moisture out, and that means that mold can’t build its home inside.


Microcell technology is the secret for Danpal’s cladding effectiveness. Danpal has designed connector-bound, double-notched microcell polycarbonate sheets so that the insulation inside a building doesn’t fall victim to moisture from rain or snow. The air gap and convective motion in the panels create natural ventilation that prevents insulation from the dampness that moisture can cause. Cladding on the outside of a structure means dry insulation inside.

Wall cladding won’t let moisture damage insulation

Maybe you’re planning to move to a warmer climate so that you can escape the winter cold. Or maybe you’re already living somewhere where the sunshine is a daily presence, and you miss the seasons. Maybe you’ve been transferred to a new location and you’re researching the area so that you know what to expect. As you make your moving plans, have you considered that no matter where you go, there will be some kind of weather that you’re going to encounter? No matter where you’re going to live and work, the weather is waiting for you.

Weather is a factor for human beings, but it’s also an important consideration for architects who design the buildings in which we spend our days. Whether it’s the rain or the snow, the wind or the rain, the weather demands respect, just as buildings require protection so that they can withstand the elements. That’s why, at Danpal, we tout the advantages of our wall cladding. It’s an excellent way to show weather that no matter what it brings, your building isn’t going to surrender to it.


Architectural design is more than just planning a building. It’s creating a place where people will live and work and spend a significant portion of their active lives. In order for the investment to be worthwhile, a building should be constructed out of high-quality materials that will last a long time.

The economics of construction is a major aspect of design, but along with the cost of the building itself, it’s vital that the long-term life span of the building is assessed. If you build with quality materials, using a reputable company like Danpal for your project, you can count on a satisfying return on your investment. Don’t disregard the way that weather can undermine all the work and cost that have gone into the building. Using wall cladding that is designed to protect your structure will enable your building to provide superior performance over the years.


So much planning goes into the design of a building that it would be easy to forget one of the most important details and that’s making sure that the insulation is protected. If insulation absorbs moisture, your building is facing a series of problems that can begin with leakages and higher heating and cooling costs resulting from wasted energy, and possibly end with structural stress or even building collapse.

And that’s just what can happen to the building itself. But damp insulation eventually leads to the growth of mold, which has a negative effect upon the occupants of the building, as mold leads to respiratory problems such as asthma and allergies.


Danpal wall cladding has the exclusive double notching that keeps everything watertight. Moisture caused by rain and snow can’t penetrate and, because of the air gap in the cladding, energy efficiency is maintained through the natural ventilation of the convective motion. Wall cladding saves you money because it protects your insulation, and it supports better health for the building occupants because it helps to keep insulation dry.

Cladding: The bodyguard for your building

Your building needs to be protected from its enemies. Those enemies include the pounding rain of seasonal storms that challenges a building’s defenses, finding the weak spots and causing damage that can be costly. Snow is another foe that your building encounters during the cold seasons. The freezing winds blow, ice forms, and snow builds up on roofs. Hail is no friend to a building as it punishes a structure with relentless fury. In order for a building to remain watertight and airtight so that weather can’t cause damage, a bodyguard is needed.

Cladding is your building’s bodyguard. It’s placed upon the building’s exterior to establish a barrier against the weather. Choosing your cladding bodyguard involves selecting a building materials manufacturer with a proven reputation for excellence. You’re looking for a company that is well known for developing high-quality materials that deliver a high-quality performance.

Weather is a 24/7 opponent and so your cladding bodyguard must be ready at all times to defend against whatever strikes. As we all know, weather can be unpredictable and in our current era, where we’re witnessing the increased strength of storms, we want to provide ample protection for our buildings. Danpal is the company that can provide the cladding that will serve as your building’s bodyguard.


You expect a bodyguard to be strong and powerful, right? That’s certainly the case with Danpal cladding, which is made of microcell polycarbonate sheets. Microcell technology and polycarbonate sheets have teamed up like superheroes to bring their best to the battle against the weather. The cladding panels are double-notched to reinforce their watertight strength and prevent moisture from penetrating.


Microcell technology is three times lighter than other building materials on the market, but that just means that it’s more flexible and easier to work with. Being lighter in weight doesn’t mean weaker; in fact, it’s quite the opposite. The flexibility of our Danpal cladding is a benefit to the client because it’s so easy to install. Connections are made while the system has support, and that means that additional framed support structures aren’t needed. When clients are able to save money because the installation takes less work and less time, they’re happier with the results.


If you’re looking for a cladding system that makes your building look like it’s protected by a superhero, you want to learn more about Danpal’s Ventilated Rain Screen System (VRS). Our VRS is a model for other systems because it meets the existing federal regulations. It’s both flexible enough to be quickly installed and versatile enough to be placed on a wide range of structures because it connects readily. It’s pleasing to architects because, with so many options, the color choices are plentiful.

A bodyguard can be tough but also attractive; at least, that’s how Danpal feels out cladding as a bodyguard for your building.

Wall cladding won’t let weather ruin your insulation

Budgets have a lot to do with the purchases that we make, but no matter what you’re buying, remember that if you skimp on quality, you’re going to end up paying in repairs and replacements what you thought you were saving in the beginning. At Danpal, we remind our clients that, when purchasing wall cladding, it’s important to buy smart. What does that mean? Well, wall cladding can make the difference in your energy bills, the structural integrity of your building, as well as the comfort of your living and working space. We’ll explain why wall cladding makes such a difference in your building’s ability to keep the weather out and keep savings in.


In the majority of the world’s International Energy Agency (IEA) countries, 40% of the individual nation’s energy usage stems from what their buildings use. That’s a lot of energy! But imagine how much worse that number would be if energy is being wasted. Energy waste isn’t always detected at first. Moisture from rain or snow can get into the interior of a residence or a business and spread dampness to the insulation. After that, the cost of wasting energy begins to make itself known. Wall cladding can protect your insulation from the threats of weather damage.


What is the temperature inside your structure? It should be consistent all year round so that, even when it’s very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter, you can maintain a steady temperature and not have to turn the thermostat up and down to be more comfortable. If you do have to adjust the temperature as the weather outside changes, it’s time to see if your insulation is wet.

Another clue that your insulation has been affected by moisture comes when you’re paying your heating and cooling bills. If you notice an unexpected increase in the amount you’re paying, you might want to check to see if your insulation is in good condition. Wet insulation lets energy escape and you’re the one paying for energy that you aren’t using.


Danpal has invested a great deal into the research and development aspect of our business and we’re pleased with the results. We’ve developed products that suit the client’s needs while also meeting the needs of the environment. This formula for success has been a popular one with customers and that’s why we continue to be in the forefront of the industry.

Our wall cladding is designed with an air gap. This gives the wall cladding natural ventilation that keeps insulation dry and uncompromised by moisture. Another feature that prevents moisture from striking insulation is the convective motion behind the wall.

The high-quality performance of wall cladding’s connector-bound microcell polycarbonate panels keeps moisture out. Your building will be around for a long time because Danpal wall cladding keeps the leaks out.

Danpal Wall Cladding Won’t Let Your Building Down

When making the choice of what company to use for the building materials that are needed in your construction project, you’re going to be faced with a number of different questions that need to be answered. Which company has the experience that suits the ever-changing needs of the industry? Which company has a reputation for producing innovative building materials that meet the needs of the design while also meeting federal environmental regulations? Which company has the staffing that keeps up with the latest technological advances? When you’re in the market for wall cladding, you want to use materials providing by a company that has proven its merit in construction. That company is Danpal.

The Danpal Team Designs Wall Cladding That Protects Insulation

We’ve been in the business of building buildings for more than three decades. We’ve seen energy efficiency become a major priority for our clients as the public becomes more invested in the safety of the planet. We’ve witnessed the expanding role that technology has played in adapting building designs to reflect a “smart” living and working environment. Through it all, we have continued to concentrate our work ethic as a Global Vision, Local Focus mission that keeps the needs and expectations of each individual customer at the forefront of our efforts. We aim to build buildings that fulfill their purpose. That’s why our Danpal wall cladding is designed to protect insulation. Insulation that has been compromised by moisture is failing the building it’s supposed to maintain.

Wall CladdingWhy Does Insulation Have To Be Protected By Wall Cladding?

The only thing that weather can be relied upon to do is to challenge a building’s lifespan. Whether it’s a season when cold weather predominates, or a time when heavy rains are expected, or a period when winds are a threat, all we can be sure of is that a building will need to be protected. If moisture manages to penetrate a building’s defenses, the insulation can no longer perform its function under optimum conditions.

Energy efficiency is threatened because failed insulation forces the heating and cooling systems to work harder to maintain a consistent temperature inside. The occupants of the building are threatened by the growth of mold, which thrives in a moist environment and can lead to health problems that harm people who may already suffer from allergies and asthma. Money is lost because when insulation isn’t working, energy is escaping and you’re paying for energy that you aren’t using. Wall cladding can make the crucial difference in how your insulation performs.

Danpal Wall Cladding To The Rescue

Danpal’s innovative team has created wall cladding that is designed to resist weather and prevent moisture from invading the interior of a structure. Not only do our designers and engineers know how to develop a product that is able to fend off nature’s advances, but our company operates on five continents. There’s no better way to be schooled in the various kinds of weather and the threats that they represent than to actually function in areas where that weather is present.

Wall cladding that’s both efficient and esthetic

In order for a building to operate at a top level of efficiency, its various components need to be performing at their peak levels. For the occupants of a building, that efficiency tends to be based upon their own personal comfort. If a building is too warm or too cool, the occupants are likely to blame the heating and cooling systems. But the culprit may be something that is easily ignored when energy bills seems to be running higher than usual. If a building’s insulation is performing flawlessly, the heating and air conditioning systems should be able to run at a consistent temperature. If you’ve had to change the thermostat, the reason may be because your insulation has been compromised by a leak in the building that allows moisture to enter and energy to escape. Wall cladding is a building’s defense against leaks that cause harm to insulation.

Wall Cladding Excels At Keeping Weather Outside

It seems obvious, doesn’t it? Weather is a natural phenomenon that has no business invading a building. But if rain or snow manages to penetrate a building’s exterior, moisture can develop and, all of a sudden, outdoor weather has managed to find a home in the interior. That quickly leads to problems that can start with a leak and, in a worst-case scenario, actually develop over time into structural collapse if the problem isn’t detected. The best way to avoid that threat is by choosing Danpal wall cladding.

Wall CladdingThe Formula For Wall Cladding Success

The great advantage of wall cladding is that it does so much for a building, both in terms of its protection against the elements and also in its appearance. Danpal’s wall cladding is comprised of connector-bound polycarbonate panels that employ microcell technology to provide optimum protection against weather penetration. Our exclusive double notching is key to keeping the building watertight and safe from penetration by moisture. The air gap’s natural ventilation operates with a convective motion that keeps insulation dry and energy running efficiently.

Danpal wall cladding, with its exclusive double notching, makes sure that watertightness is secure in order to prevent moisture from penetrating. Thanks to an air gap, the wall cladding’s natural ventilation has a convective motion that sustains its energy efficiency.

Color and light are two features of wall cladding that can turn a building into a structural portrait of beauty. Architects love the variety of options that Danpal offers in our wall cladding because it lets the building perform its required function for the occupants who are within, while creating a dazzling display of beauty for those who are looking at the building from the outside.

The Beauty and Performance of Danpal Cladding

Beauty that’s built to last. That’s one way of describing Danpal’s cladding. Or we could say that cladding, which functions for a building in the way that skin does to our bodies, is as attractive to look at as it is impressive in performance. Ultimately, of course, what we say doesn’t matter nearly as much as what cladding does. That’s where the survival of a building and its ability to be protected against the far-reaching, harmful effects of moisture come into focus. Danpal cladding shields buildings from those harmful effects. The Danpal reputation has proven that our high standards have developed and manufactured products that surpass industry standards and maintain an esthetic look that sets an impressive standard for visual appearance.

Danpal Cladding Keeps Moisture Away

Because it’s connector bound and made of microcell polycarbonate panels, our cladding is both light and solid. Strong enough to withstand the fiercest weather that nature can deliver, polycarbonate is three times lighter than other similar products on the market. Designing a building that’s able to stand up to the elements means choosing products that will give that undisputed edge in the weather wars. As we all know, weather has the power to do a great deal of damage, but it’s not always apparent where the trouble comes from. Much of the time, we’re spectators to weather’s fury, watching from behind windows as the rain pours down from the sky or the snow falls upon the ground. We hear the wind howl and the noise that hail makes as it strikes. But what we may not see, if the insulation of a building is no longer performing up to its optimum level, is the gradual erosion that moisture can cause within a structure.

CladdingDanpal cladding protects insulations so that moisture can’t invade. Our Ventilated Rainscreen System meets all of the regulations that are in effect to ensure that a building’s insulation conforms to federal codes. It also does a superior job of protecting that insulation. No wonder it’s one of our most popular products. The double notching delivers a level of watertightness that’s 100% impermeable so that moisture doesn’t get a chance to penetrate, even under the worst weather conditions.

Danpal Cladding Meets Esthetic Standards

It’s a relief to know that Danpal cladding is going to protect the interior of your building so that it isn’t compromised by moisture. When a building is as beautiful as it’s going to be with Danpal cladding, you’ll want it to be standing for a long, long time.

Danpal offers a wide variety of options so that your building can present an image that will be spellbinding. Color gives a building an amazing versatility, but color isn’t the only feature that you’ll find at Danpal. Would you like your building to sparkle? Danpal can make it happen. Your building can be surrounded by light and reflections, or it can be opaque; it can be bright and shiny. You won’t believe the many different choices that await you!

Cladding Keeps Weather Where It Belongs

Danpal is in the business of providing products that meet your needs. From conforming to building regulations to surpassing industry standards to designing with function and beauty in mind, Danpal has a proven track record for excellence. At Danpal, we never lose sight of the fact that first of all, a building product has a purpose. We’re equally committed to the esthetics of a building so that with our products, its appearance and its function blend together for a finished result that works for everyone. However, if a building, no matter how functional and no matter how beautiful, fails to keep out moisture, it’s not going to be around very long.

Choosing high quality cladding is key to keeping moisture out of your building. Cladding is the part of a structure that’s placed on the exterior to protect the wood or the brick, creating a barrier between the weather and the building. When choosing the cladding that’s right for you, remember that you’re looking for a product that can stand up to the extremes of heat and cold.

When you make the right choice of cladding—the Danpal choice—you are making an investment today that’s going to last well into the future.

claddingThe Advantages of Danpal Cladding

Danpal’s connector-bound wall cladding is made of microcell polycarbonate panels. Microcell technology which is superior in strength, is three times lighter than other options available on today’s market. The panels are easy to install because the connections are made while the system is already supported, so there’s no need for additional framed support structures. Money, time and energy are saved in installation, a budget boost that pleases architects and clients both.

The double-notched cladding panels achieve a watertight level of impermeability that keeps the panels from being compromised by moisture. Remember what we said about moisture? If your building can be kept free of moisture, it’s going to be in good condition for a long time. Moisture in a structure leads to mold; mold isn’t healthy for a building or for its occupants. For people with respiratory ailments like asthma, or for those who suffer from allergies, mold is going to cause problems. But moisture, because it weakens the integrity of a structure, is also dangerous for buildings and can, in a worst-case scenario, lead to collapse.

The Ventilated RainScreen System

Wall cladding hits new heights of excellence in the Danpal Ventilated Rainscreen System (VRS). The system conforms to existing regulations, meets high quality standards, and can be used on a variety of buildings from stadiums to skyscrapers because it connects so readily with the structure. Architects prize the ease of installation and so do clients. But they also value the impressive assortment of features that make the ventilated rain screen system so attractive. In addition to its superior performance, the ventilated rain screen system is designed so that it adds visual appeal to wall cladding because Danpal offers so many options and colors.

Architects enjoy the freedom that the esthetic choices offer and the building shows what can result when there’s a wide range of choices.

Wall Cladding for Long-Lasting Protection Against Weather

A building is a major investment for a company or a family. Anyone who goes to the time and effort of constructing and owning a building wants to do everything possible to make sure that the investment delivers a profitable return. One of the best ways to do that is to provide the right kind of protection so that the building isn’t compromised by the harm that weather can cause. All it takes to bring a building to ruin is for moisture to invade the interior of a structure.

As the moisture spreads, mold grows, and with mold comes harm to the physical health of the occupants and structural health of the building as well. How can you protect your building from the dangers of mold-causing moisture? Many homes and offices today have opted to install wall cladding so that the property remains in good condition. Danpal products are known for their durability, energy efficiency, and versatility and you’ll find that our wall cladding meets these standards.

Wall CladdingWhy Wall Cladding Is Better Than Tile

As we learned more about the need to change our habits in order to protect our planet, we’ve found out that everything we do affects the world in which we live. That’s also true for the building materials that we choose. Wall cladding is the environmentally smart decision to make for your building. In recent years, we’ve discovered how important sustainability is for the long-term health of our planet and that lifestyle has changed the way we build. People used to choose tile instead, until they realized that because tile breaks and needs to be replaced, it doesn’t support sustainability the way that wall cladding does.

Wall Cladding Installation Is Easy

The light weight of wall cladding makes it so easy to work with that an entire structure can be installed within days. The lightness of its weight is equaled by its long-lasting durability. Danpal’s Ventilated Rainscreen System (VRS), which is made of microcell polycarbonate panels, is three times lighter than traditional rainscreen cladding. Danpal’s microcell technology has proven to deliver superior performance in our building products. Polycarbonate is today’s popular choice because of its impressive strength. The installation is easy, the performance is long-lasting.
