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.
