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.

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!

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.

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.

What do you get when you install Danpal wall cladding in a building? You get the kind of protection that a building must have if it’s going to be able to withstand the daily weather onslaught that can leave an unprotected structure threatened by moisture penetration. Moisture is one of the deadliest threats that a building faces because if insulation is compromised, the building is in danger. Danpal wall cladding provides so many different benefits that you can have confidence in your building’s ability to outlast the elements. For people, weather is something that humans can dodge as long as we seek shelter inside a building. For many of us, the worst that rain can do is get us wet as we run from the car to the building where we live or work. But a building is exposed to weather for the entire duration of the event, whether it’s a powerful rainstorm, a fierce snowstorm, hail, high winds or even scorching sunlight.

Danpal Wall Cladding Is Easy To Work With And Easy To Install

The connector-bound microcell polycarbonate panels that make up the wall cladding are three times lighter than traditional rainscreen cladding. Because the connections are made directly onto the support, there’s no need for supplementary supporting framed structures. It’s not just the installation that’s easy. Danpal wall cladding has the edge when it comes to overall superiority for designers and builders alike. That’s because customization is part of the Danpal design process. Panel lengths are available up to the standard 12.0m length and even longer upon request. Add in an amazing range of colors and designs, and it’s easy to see why architects prefer Danpal for wall cladding.

wall claddingDanpal Wall Cladding Protects Insulation

If a building’s insulation is compromised by moisture, the building is going to suffer. Insulation must remain dry in order for it to work and for energy efficiency to be maintained. 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. When the building’s occupants have moved in, they can be confident that the energy bills they receive reflect the actual amount of energy that’s being used because none is escaping. Danpal wall cladding makes sure that you’re going to only be paying for what you use.

Wall Cladding That Represents the Danpal Difference

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.
