Transform Your Building with Danpal’s VRS Cladding Solution

Many CBD’s are in desperate need of revitalization as a result of the urban decay that has crept in over the years. To combat this, programs of Urban Renewal have forged ahead. A large part of this process is the complete face-lifting of existing buildings with the use of external wall cladding materials. Danpal has recognized this fact and has developed its own cladding system called, VRS or Ventilated Rainscreen System.

Danpal VRS Cladding System

The Danpal VRS cladding system is an advanced, comprehensive solution that not only face-lifts a building but also provides full protection against the harsh environment. Our weather-proof cladding system has been specifically developed 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.


When compared to other types of cladding materials, it is clear, that our Danpal VRS cladding solution has several important attributes which give it the edge over the competition. The following are some of these key factors, shown to be superior to traditional cladding systems. Danpal VRS is 100% weather-proof, is up to 10 x lighter, has no visible fixations, is quicker to install and is offered in a multitude of colours and finishes.

Benefits derived from the use of  Danpal Cladding Solution

Beyond all these clear benefits derived from the use of our Danpal VRS cladding solution. Safety is paramount and must be a top priority when considering the choice of wall cladding material. Our Danpalon panel-based system has been Fire-rated as class B-s3, D0. This means that in the event of a fire, our VRS Danpalon panels will not spread the flame, nor will the cladding produce any hazardous smoke or give off dangerous particulates.

Danpal’s VRS offers the completely unique aesthetic appeal of our Danpalon multicell panels, high-end performance, a 25 year lifespan and inherently built-in safety factors. Danpal’s VRS cladding has you covered on all aspects that should be considered vital, when choosing an external wall cladding solution for your building.

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.

Green buildings can count on Danpal

The way Danpal sees it, the planet is our neighborhood and just as we look after our communities, we also need to do what’s necessary to treat our environment with care. One way that we can support sustainable lifestyles every day is with green buildings. By doing this, we create a holistic bond between ourselves and nature.

Green buildings are one of the most effective ways of ensuring the long-term viability of Planet Earth, a vital mission for our society. Danpal is so dedicated to strengthening the connections between the natural world and the man-made world that we’ve pioneered the practice of daylighting architecture, which incorporates natural light into our buildings.

Planet Earth has been good to us. Green buildings are an important way that we can return the favor.


We tend to think of sustainability in terms of products. But our lifestyles are also a sustainability issue. Danpal doesn’t lose sight of the fact that labor is also an environmental concern. Just as shoppers are encouraged to “buy local” so that they are purchasing products that needed less transportation time to reach the market, Danpal’s façade, cladding, skylight, roofing and shading systems are manufactured so that they arrive at the site ready for installation.

Reducing on-site labor hours is an enormous time-saver for clients and it’s also popular for building sites that are located in open environments or under conditions which could be problematic.


Green building living has completely transformed the way we live and work. We strive to use products that promote the conservation of resources that are nonrenewable. This philosophy encourages all of us to lessen the impact on the environment that comes with the extraction, transportation, fabrication, processing, installation, and disposal of building materials. When we re-use and recycle, we advocate habits that make us responsible stewards of our planet.

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.

Cladding is a multi-faceted building addition

Simply described, cladding is the application of a layer of building material that adds thermal insulation and resistance to the natural elements, and enhances the appearance of a structure. Cladding’s role is to prevent moisture from penetrating the building and damaging the interior of the structure. These qualities add to a building’s durability and esthetic appeal, and the experienced experts at Danpal can provide guidance in choosing the cladding that’s right for your building.


Insulation creates a barrier between heat and cold. Thermal insulation is the process by which the transfer of heat between objects is reduced. While the flow of heat is inevitable when there is contact between objects with different temperatures, thermal insulation creates an area where thermal radiation is reflected rather than absorbed by the item which has the cooler temperature.

Clients have discovered why Danpal’s Ventilated Rainscreen System is so popular for building projects. Danpalon panels offer complete insulation protection in the form of double-notched, connector-bound sheets that are made from microcell polycarbonate. An air gap provides natural ventilation. The insulation stays dry thanks to convective motion. Preventing moisture also prevents mold from finding a cozy home in damp insulation.


We all know what to expect from weather as the seasons change. Winter brings cold, snow, ice and powerful winds. These elements can cause highways to close to traffic; schools cancel classes and activities; the news media issue warnings about what to do in case of frostbite. The rainy season might bring April showers and in turn, May flowers, but in the meantime, there’s a lot of moisture to deal with. Buildings have no way of escaping the weather and that puts them at risk for moisture managing to get inside a structure and causing leaks.

Leaks aren’t just the nuisance of a drip coming from the ceiling that will need to be repaired. They can cause serious damage to a building; if a leak isn’t tended to, it can lead, in a worst-case scenario, to structural collapse. But what about the leaks that aren’t detected? When moisture gets into the insulation of a building, health risks to the occupants become a concern. If a person suffers from allergies or asthma, the presence of mold can make those conditions worse. Cladding is a recommended way to block leaks before they get a chance to start.


Cladding is a building’s wardrobe and, just as clothing for people comes in different sizes, Danpal cladding can be customized up to the standard 12.0m length. Danpal also offers cladding that comes in a wide range of colors and designs so that an architect can give free rein to his or her creativity and imagination. But if color isn’t enough, there’s also sunlight. Danpal’s daylighting architecture is designed to add natural light to the internal living and working spaces of a building. This enhancement adds so much to a building that it, just like the array of color options, provides architects with the pleasure of creating beauty with their designs.

Cladding is the perfect wardrobe for your building

If you could buy clothes for your building, how would you dress it? You’d want to make sure it had a raincoat and an umbrella to protect it when the rains come. But you’d also need to give it a warm, heavy outer covering so that it was shielded from the snow and winds. Buildings don’t all come in the same size, so you’d have to make sure that the coverings you chose were the right fit. Even though your primary purpose is to protect your building from the damage that weather can do, you’d still want the structure to look attractive.

Buildings don’t wear garments, of course, so there’s no wardrobe that you can choose to protect a structure against weather. But there is cladding, which is the all-season protection that you’re looking for so that weather doesn’t invade your building’s interior. Danpal claddings are light in weight and customizable so that they’re easy to work with and to install. They’re 100% waterproof. They’re environmentally friendly, a major concern in today’s ecologically-minded consumer market. A variety of colors ensures that your building will have a commanding appearance to those outside the building while you’re cozy and comfortable inside. Danpal cladding is what the best-dressed buildings are wearing to protect against weather.


Danpal innovation has created cladding that delivers a superior performance when it comes to ease of installation, weather protection, insulation maintenance and appearance. The Danpal system has an air gap which provides natural ventilation. Behind the cladding, a convective motion keeps the insulation dry. Wet weather stays outside because the system’s exclusive double notching. Inside, the occupants are comfortable and content because the energy works efficiently to provide heat in the cold months and cooling in the hot months and freedom from dampness all year around. The strength of the microcell technology polycarbonate panels benefits from the fact that our panels are three times lighter than traditional rain screen cladding. Connections can be made directly onto the support which eliminates the need for any additional supporting framed structures.


Performance is important for cladding. So is appearance. For an architect, something that could be a challenging decision to make ends up being very easy, thanks to Danpal’s Ventilated RainScreen System (VRS). That’s because VRS, another high-quality Danpal system, can be counted on to stand firm when weather attacks. VRS can stand up to the harshest winter weather, the wettest rains, and the coldest winds. Architects count on the way that Danpal’s VRS, like all Danpal products, conforms to the latest federal regulations for buildings. Danpal performance for cladding is matched by the esthetic choices that an architect has when deciding what colors, textures and finishes to use for cladding that pleases the eye.

With cladding by Danpal, a building that looks great from the outside is also dry and comfortable inside. That’s the perfect balance between performance and appearance.

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.

Cladding delivers insulation protection

Architecture can be a demanding field, requiring a nimble mastery of talents. An architect who excels in his or her field is one who understands the basic requirements of construction so that a building can emerge from the original design to a finished site. Architecture demands a knowledge of current building codes and federal regulations in order to comply with the legal standards governing the construction industry. The architect who knows the discipline also knows how to translate what the client wants into reality. Through all of this, an architect is a creator, taking building materials and colors and turning these components into a structure that accomplishes its purpose. All of this seems easy to understand, and it is. That is, until the first leak shows up and all of a sudden, the people inside the building are at the mercy of the elements which are supposed to remain outside the building. When that happens, the talented, knowledgeable, skilled, creative architect is going to wonder if he or she neglected to use the right cladding when choosing building materials.

CladdingKeeping Leaks Out With Danpal Cladding

No one wants a leak in the building. Leaks are messy to clean up; they’re a nuisance for the occupants of the building, whether it’s in the home or the workplace; and they have the potential to cause accidents, if someone would slip and fall. If the leak manages to compromise the insulation of the building, even greater damage is likely. Dry insulation is a must in order for the heating/cooling system to maintain peak energy efficiency. Even buildings in the very best of condition use a lot of energy—they’re responsible for 40% of energy consumption in developed countries—so you can imagine what happens if damaged insulation allows energy to escape. Quality cladding plays a very important role in making sure that your building’s insulation has the protection it needs to maintain efficient use of energy.

Why Danpal Cladding Provides the Best Protection

Danpal’s Ventilated Rainscreen System offers complete insulation protection thanks to the Danpalon panels. The double-notched, connector-bound sheets, made of microcell polycarbonate, provide impenetrable protection for a building’s insulation. The natural ventilation is the result of an air gap; the convective motion is what keeps the insulation dry and free from weather penetration. Dry insulation is like a vaccination against damage for a building; it prevents structural problems from developing and it also prevents the penetration of moisture, which can turn into mold and cause a variety of health concerns, particularly for people who suffer from respiratory conditions such as asthma or allergies.

Cladding and Creativity Make An Unbeatable Combo

Cladding clearly plays an important role in the life of a building. But for architects, it also has a cosmetic part to play. That’s because Danpal cladding, which comes in an impressive array of colors and designs, gives a building a creative identity. Add in the generous customization options—Danpal cladding can be customized up to the standard length of 12.0m—and you can understand why architects are so enthusiastic about our product.

Color is an amazing esthetic advantage, but Danpal doesn’t stop there. We’ve pioneered what’s known as daylight architecture, which means that natural light is easily added to a design that uses Danpal cladding. With cladding that protects your building’s interior from the invasion of moisture while enhancing the inside with the benefits of natural light, the finished result is both structurally supported and esthetically enhanced, for a result that’s sure to please.

Cladding and Climate and Insulation

Design a building. Build the building. Enjoy the building. Many people may think that these steps indicate the life cycle of a structure, but architects know that the process isn’t nearly that straightforward. The design for a building begins with a keen awareness of what the building’s purpose will be, where the building is located, and an understanding of the climate in that region. After the building is completed and the occupants have moved in, the success of the next phase hinges on whether or not the structure has what it takes to resist the threats of weather, particularly rain and snow and how they will impact the insulation of a building. This is cause for worry for many building owners, but not for those whose designs were completed with Danpal cladding. For them, the insulation is secure and the moisture can’t enter, so the building is on its way to a long life.


Danpal’s business presence extends to five continents, which is part of the reason why we take our global responsibilities so seriously. But at the same time, we know that concentrating our innovation locally makes our company stronger and more responsive to all the building needs in the industry. Cladding needs to be strong so that it can prevent leakages from invading the interior of a building. Climate and cladding are closely interwoven; cladding can’t change the amount of precipitation that falls in any given area, but it can prevent that precipitation from causing damage to the structure. Danpal cladding has an inner sheet, an outer panel, and a ventilated cavity; between the building’s exterior and the cladding is a gap that supplies a consistent stream of air to block the penetration of moisture.


In most of the world’s International Energy Agency (IEA) counties, buildings account for nearly 40% of the primary energy usage in the individual nations. That high number shows that, as nations advance, they use more energy. How, then, can energy usage be controlled so that there’s no waste? Cladding plays into that formula because if the cladding is working as it’s designed, insulation stays dry and energy isn’t escaping. A consistent temperature is maintained internally.


The most effective cladding on the market is the Danpal Ventilated Rainscreen System or VRS, which employs Danpalon® panels to keep insulation free from moisture. The convective motion behind the panels is what keeps the insulation dry. The standard panel length is 12.0m, but if you need longer lengths of panels, just let Danpal know and we’ll be happy to customize. Our system is 100% watertight and easy to install, so customization is no problem.
In a way, customization is the key to Danpal’s success in meeting the needs of our clients. We design building materials with the client in mind. You’ll appreciate the work that goes into our products when you see for yourself what a difference Danpal cladding makes in the long-term life of your building.

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.
