In the construction industry, the products used to create a building must, first and foremost, fulfill the function for which they were designed. They must be strong enough to withstand the harshest elements of weather. They must conform to current environmental standards. All of these items are important. But for Danpal, a company which, during its 50 years in the industry, has always maintained the highest standards of quality in its products, there’s something else that’s important. Esthetics. A building has a purpose and its components are designed to make that purpose happen. But a building, very often, is occupied by people and Danpal believes that people are better served if the buildings where they work and live can provide an attractive appearance, as well as comfort and safety. The advance of technology has provided new ways of making things so that they emphasize all of these priorities. One of the strongest, most versatile, and most customizable products in today’s market is polycarbonate. Polycarbonate sheets have become the favorite of architects looking for a building material that meets industry requirements while satisfying client preferences.
Polycarbonate Sheets Build For Today’s Market
In the history of the building industry, there was a time when glass was one of the most popular products for architects. It was strong and attractive. True, scratching was a problem and it wasn’t particularly to work with, but for its time, it was a favorite. But times have changed. Now there’s a new product, one that is so superior to glass that it’s easy to understand why architects are making the shift to polycarbonate sheets. As we already noted, strength is a primary consideration when choosing a building material, and polycarbonate is 200 times stronger than glass. You might think that something that strong would be difficult to work with, but actually, polycarbonate is so flexible that customization is easy. Polycarbonate sheets, which have been hardened so that they are capable of standing up to very high resistance levels, are virtually impossible to break.
Energy Efficiency Is Certain With Polycarbonate Sheets
Did you know that in the industrialized world, 40% of the primary energy usage comes from buildings? If you want to build with sustainability in mind, you’re looking for materials that enhance energy efficiency. Polycarbonate sheets offer a superior performance when it comes to protecting a building from the damage that weather can cause. Danpal’s Ventilated Rainscreen System, with its natural ventilation, keeps insulation dry and free from the moisture that can cause significant damage over time to a building. The building maintains its energy efficiency by keeping energy from escaping.
Still Like The Look Of Glass? Polycarbonate Can Still Be Your Choice
There are two different choices for polycarbonate sheets, and one of them, solid polycarbonate, is a clear, flat sheeting that resembles glass, but with the strength of polycarbonate. The second option is multiwall polycarbonate, a structured sheet with hollow air chambers. You’ll love the strength of polycarbonate and you won’t have to sacrifice anything in strength or resistance when choosing it.
