A Louver Façade Is At Your Service For Sunlight and Shade

If you’re lucky enough to have had a louver façade installed on the exterior of your building, you’re relishing the presence of sunny days and warmer temperatures. Now that summer has arrived in the northern hemisphere, people think that weather worries are over. There’s certainly no threat of blizzards for those countries where June, July, and August herald a chance to enjoy outdoor activities uninhibited by snow and cold. However, too much of a good thing, even the summer sun, can present problems. With sunshine comes glare; with warm weather comes heat and humidity. Being able to control those weather features is one of the reasons why a louver façade is such a popular architectural addition to a design.

A Louver Façade Adds Weather Control And Comfort To A Building’s Interior

On a perfect day, when the temperature is just right, a louver system can make things even better by bringing the outdoors inside. On an imperfect day, one in which rain has darkened the skies and brought dampness and chill along with it, your louver façade keeps the inclement weather out. Microcell technology has proven its strength and versatility. It presents a strong defense against weather’s extremes, which helps to keep insulation dry and free from the moisture that could otherwise compromise your energy efficiency. Because Danpal facades are famed for their light weight and ease of installation, they’re a popular choice among architects.

Sunshine and Shade Brought To You By A Louver Façade

Bringing the outdoors inside means finding the right balance between sunlight and shade. Sunshine, for all its wonders, can sometimes be too bright. That’s when we need shade and that’s one of the ways in which a louver façade can blend the benefits of natural light with the comfort of shade. Too warm? Too bright? No problem for a shading system Daylighting architecture delivers the weather the way that you like it, with fresh air on demand, and shade when you need it.

How A Louver Façade Improves Energy Efficiency

It’s natural that, in cold weather, we depend upon our heating systems; in hot weather, we crank up the air conditioning. But with 365 days in a calendar year, there are many days when we don’t need heating or cooling. That’s when a louver façade can make an enormous difference, both in your comfort and in your energy usage. You’ll relish those days when you have all the advantages of the beautiful outdoors while you work inside—the natural light, the fresh breezes, the shade—without those negative aspects of nature, like bugs, glare, and humidity.

Happiness Is a Louver Façade

Well, that might be an exaggeration, but when you think about it, you realize that a louver façade, by giving you more control over the level of nature that you allow into your workspace or living space, does make you feel better and more productive. These days, when the remote working and learning models are becoming far more familiar, isn’t it a good idea to find out whether your home office would benefit from a louver system?

Danpal’s Solar Shading System Creates Intelligent Daylighting

A solar shading system is used to optimize the levels of visible light and solar heat gain that will be allowed into a structure. When it’s cloudy outside, movable shading retracts to allow natural light, and the solar gain that it brings, to enter a building so that there is less internal dependence on heating and electric light. Because human being spend an estimated 90 percent of their daily lives inside, have a need for heat and light, even when they’re inside the workplace. Research and technology have devised a way for architectural design and technology to refine the process by which heat and shade enter a building. Danpal’s  Controlite® System has created intelligent daylighting, a solar shading system that delivers complete control of the desired level of light intensity inside a building, no matter what season of the year.

Danpal’s Controlite® System Brings A Season Of Solar Control

Daylight advances and retreats according to the schedule that the sun has imposed upon it, but with technology, buildings are no longer required to submit to nature’s rules. By controlling the transmission of daylight and solar heat gain, Controlite® optimizes light and heat to deliver comfort to buildings. As the day proceeds, the levels of heat and sunshine outside are changing. Inside, the building is geared up to counteract that schedule by adapting to the changing light conditions and altering the amounts of indoor light, solar heat gain, and shade. The system also helps minimize some of the extremes in temperature that come as a result of hot and cold weather.

How Controlite® Brings A Solar Shading System and Energy Efficiency Together

The Controlite® panels that are integrated into the design of the building follow through on the original planning, reducing the energy usd by heating, artificial lighting, and air conditioning. The Controlite® system significantly reduces energy use from air-conditioning, heating, and artificial lighting. Credit points are earned with the rating systems used by green buildings.

How Controlite® Saves Money By Saving Energy

If the heat and light of the daylight hours can be controlled through technology, the result is a positive one for everyone. Occupants of a building benefit from the increased shade and reduced glare that would otherwise be coming into the building. A building’s heating and cooling systems get a break because the use of natural light or shade and the warmth of the sun reduces the need for artificial light eases utility costs in season. No one is going to argue when the results add money to our budgets!

How Controlite® Intelligent Daylighting Works

The translucent glazing panel has rotating louvres that adjust their position during the day in order to take full advantage of the levels of daylight that are coming into the building from the outside. Natural light makes it easier for people inside to see and, as studies have shown, bringing daylight into a structure gives the occupants inside a more positive feeling about themselves and their productivity.

Horizontal Louvres Are Danpal’s Comfort Color Chart

As much as we like the sunshine, we can’t help but wish that nature came equipped with some customizable features like horizontal louvres so that, when we’re outdoors, we’d be able to control the levels of light and minimize the glare. So far, Mother Nature has not proven herself willing to allow that but fortunately, Mother Nature does not have the final say over what goes on inside. That’s why, with Danpal horizontal louvres, the consumer decides how much sunlight is too much, and when the irritation of glare needs to be subdued by the relief of shade. With Danpal and architectural innovation, we’re able to enjoy nature on our terms.

Scheduling Sunlight With Horizontal Louvres

Depending on the time of day, sunshine makes an appearance at different places in the room and some of those times might be especially inconvenient for us, depending on what we’re doing and how much glare is interfering with what we’re looking at. Horizontal louvres are designed to offer different angles so that we can bring in the sunlight and close off the glare.

Using Horizontal Louvres To Improve Ventilation

Fresh air on a temperate day is something that many of us enjoy, particularly if we’re working inside. Fresh air helps to keep us alert and even if we wish we could be outside enjoying leisure, we at least benefit from the ventilation indoors. Horizontal louvres can be angled so that the windows bring in air from outside. If we want lots of air, the louvres allow for maximized air flow to almost as much as the full width of the window.

Maximizing Horizontal Louvres Ventilation to Improve Energy Efficiency

We depend upon our heating and cooling systems to keep us comfortable inside when we’re dealing with winter cold, summer heat, autumn frost, and spring rains. But with accessible ventilation, consumers can also take advantage of fresh air, sunshine, and shade from outside. Horizontal louvres make it possible to stay comfortable on temperate days without turning on the heat or the air conditioning. Your heating and cooling systems get a break. So does your budget—fresh air is free!

Louvres and the Danpal Translucent Polycarbonate Shading System

Did you know that comfort comes in different colors? It does with the DanpaShade Louvre System, which not only gives you the option of choosing the ventilation comfort level that’s right for you but also lets you decide what color it should be. You’ve known Danpal as a leader in designing building materials that are durable and easy to work with. Now you know that they also manufacture products that let you redefine the color of comfort.

Why You Should Choose Danpal for Your Horizontal Louvres

Danpal’s pioneering of daylighting architecture makes the company a leader in innovation.

Exterior Vertical Louvres Are The Answer To Enhanced Inside Comfort

It’s not really surprising that the external features of a building are beneficial to the people inside; exterior vertical louvres have ventilation features that greatly improve your building’s performance and appearance. They protect your windows, they increase your privacy, and they can let you decide how much sunshine or shade you want to have within your living and working space. Because personal comfort levels are different for every individual, the challenge won’t be adjusting to your exterior vertical louvres; it’ll be handling the different preferences of all the people inside the building who will be arguing over how much sunshine or shade is just right!

Exterior Vertical Louvres Customizes Your Comfort Zone

Spending so much time inside over the past year has been a mixed blessing in many ways. We’ve gotten a chance to notice what we really like about our homes and offices, what we miss, and what we want to change. The concept of a comfort zone workspace has gained traction as people realize that they work better when they feel at ease inside. Ventilation can make a tremendous difference not only in how much fresh air you bring in from outside, but also in how your heating and cooling systems get a break and energy efficiency gets a boost. On a cold day, you aren’t likely to want the louvres to be opened, but you might want to help yourselves to some daylight. That’s easily done with exterior vertical louvres.

Adapting To Post-COVID 19 Changes and Finding Satisfaction With External Vertical Louvres

We’ve all made a lot of adjustments over the past year as we’ve adapted to the pandemic lifestyle. Whether you’ve been working from home, or in the office under social distancing circumstances, you’ve learned that there’s a lot to be said for interior work and living spaces that are able to accommodate personal preferences. That’s exactly where exterior vertical louvres set the standard for satisfaction. You’ll enjoy your inside work center/home office/ entertainment complex much more knowing that there’s always a little bit of sunshine that’s waiting to come in!

Easy To Clean and Maintain Exterior Vertical Louvres

Don’t hold off on installing exterior vertical louvres because you think they’ll be hard to maintain. Danpal has a well-earned reputation for designing and manufacturing building products that are known for their durability and our louvres meet that standard. Any external feature to a building is likely to need some level of cleaning after a year of weather has been raining, snowing, hailing, and sunshining on it, but you’ll be pleased to learn that your louvres can be washed or possibly, depending on what material they’re made of, even hosed down. Dry them with a cloth or a mop and you’re all set!

External Vertical Louvres And the Danpal Louvre Translucent Shading System

With external vertical louvres, there’s no longer a hard dividing line between indoor comfort and outdoor pleasure. You’re just as snug inside on a rainy, cold day, but when the sunlight beckons, you can enjoy it even though you’re inside working. The Louvre Translucent Shading System will let you customize nature to meet your preference.

Vertical Sun Shading Plays the Angles For Inside Comfort

With Danpal shading solutions, architecture can offer ultimate control over the dynamics of thermal and solar properties. The variety of options, including vertical sun shading, gives the building a unique appearance that utilizes sunshine and shady to create an esthetic site where visual appeal is matched by the unique use of natural light. By the deliberate use of vertical shading to control the amount of sunlight that is allowed into a building, energy consumption can be lowered and comfort can be increased.

What Are Some Reasons To Add Vertical Sun Shading To A Building?

Sunlight can sometimes get out of hand. In climates where hot, sunny weather is the norm, the excess solar gain that results often leads to increased energy consumption in an effort to lower temperatures. Controlling the amount of sunlight that enters a structure can have a positive effect on energy usage as well as providing comfort. In cold climates or places where winter affects the temperature, south-facing windows where winter sunlight enters can contribute to a passive form of solar heating. Vertical shading can be effective in allowing light to enter and blocking sun because the east and west angles of the sun are low. Residents of almost all weather zones will find that daylighting can be improved if natural illumination can be diffused and controlled.

What Are The Benefits of Vertical Sun Shading

You know the relief, on a hot day, of walking into a patch of shade. You feel refreshed and restored. Vertical sun shading performs in the same way, except that its effects are felt on the inside rather than the outside. The process of shading blocks sunlight before it manages to go into a structure. This allows for a comfortable indoor temperature and, at the same time, cools the building. This, in turn, affects the energy usage and performance of the building.

Introducing The DANPAL® LOUVRE SYSTEM

With Danpal® Louvre System, vertical sun shading includes extended UV protection and high impact resistance. It also adds an esthetic feature to the building by using color, finishes and effects to enhance the structure’s appearance.

What Are The Esthetics Of Vertical Shading?

Shade and sunlight are natural phenomena that add so much to our physical comfort. Because the Danpal system is specifically designed for architectural daylighting applications, the light that’s produced is a superior quality, thanks to the tight spacing between the ribs. There’s more to look at than the sunlight and shading, however. With sun shading, an architect actually has the opportunity to color with shade, making the building more artistically pleasing to the eye.

Vertical Sun Shading and Resistance to Weather

Any product dealing with the effects of sunlight and shading is also going to have to confront the realities of all weather: the hard, pounding rain; punishing hail; cold, heavy snow; powerful wind, to name the most obvious manifestations of weather. Danpal’s Microcell technology, is up to the challenge of protecting the vertical shading materials from the elements.

NATURE LOOKS BETTER WHEN VIEWED THROUGH A LOUVRE FACADE

You might think that weather is a matter entirely beyond human control, but thanks to Danpal louvre facades, consumers have some influence when it comes to how much of weather they need to accommodate. Architecture has long since come to terms with the fact that the chief function of a building is to create a working and living space where the elements won’t interfere with the ongoing routine. Everyone would agree that keeping out rain, snow, hail and wind is a vital purpose for a structure. But what about sunshine, daylight, and shade? Danpal can help you decide what parts of weather are welcome inside.

What Is The Role of A Louvre Façade In A Building’s Design?

A façade is one of the ways to prevent moisture caused by weather from penetrating a building’s defences and compromising the integrity of the insulation within. Insulation has a vital role in energy efficiency; when insulation is compromised by moisture, energy escapes, causing heating and cooling costs to increase. Made of Microcell technology, a Danpal louvre façade is both lights in weight and sturdy in function, giving you the best of both worlds when it comes to installation and performance. The lightweight louvre façade can easily be installed against a building or else protruded so that they bring shade.

Daylight, A Louvre Façade, and Optimum Weather Indoors

Since its beginning more than 50 years ago, Danpal has been a trailblazer when it comes to daylighting architecture. Not enough daylight means that there’s too much shade inside; too much daylight increases glare and makes it hard to see. But with daylighting architecture and louvre façade, you have control over the ratio of sunshine to shade, depending on your preference. You also benefit from the ventilating function of the louvre façade. When it’s too cold for fresh air, all you have to do is close the louvres. But on those wonderful days when a warm breeze from outside is just what you need, the louvres are there to make it happen.
But louvre facades don’t just defend against weather; you don’t want to host a rainstorm in your work-from-home-office, but a little extra sunlight can make the day more productive. That productivity extends to the energy efficiency that you’ll enjoy with louvre facades as well. Heating and cooling systems within the home perform to expectation as long as they’re in working order and the insulations isn’t compromised. But sometimes there are days when you just want some fresh air, or more light. Never mind the heat, never mind the AC, just bring in sunshine or shade. Your wish is the louvre façade’s command.

Looking Good With Louvre Facades

Danpal is dedicated to the idea that superior performance and esthetic appeal both play an important part in the architecture of a building. By offering a versatile line of colors and finishes, Danpal makes it possible for architecture to play artist in designing a building that is visually pleasing to the onlooker as well as the occupants.

Outdoor Louvres Give You a Little More of the Outside World for Your Inside Enjoyment

 
Imagine if we could bring the outdoors inside. The fresh air, the beautiful sunlight, that wonderful feeling of being invigorated through closer ties to nature. The outdoors is indeed a marvellous environment . . . but what about when it snows and we long to hurry inside where it’s warm? Or when it’s raining and we’re soaking wet and can’t wait to get out of the storm? The out-of-doors has definite attributes, but for most of us, it’s the inside world where we spend the majority of our time, and that means that we have to find a way to bring the outside in. Outdoor louvres are one way to do that: they can be opened all the way or half-way, or closed entirely, depending upon your personal preference and how much of the out-of-doors you want to welcome into your living and working space. The choice is up to you, and isn’t it wonderful to know that, even though we have no control over whether outdoor louvre let us control how much of it affects our comfort zone.

Why Outdoor Louvres Are the Answer for Personal Climate Control

With outdoor louvres, you make the decision on how much light and air you want to bring inside. On a rainy, windy day, you might not want the louvres to be fully open; you might even want them to be closed. If it’s a beautiful day and you don’t want that “stuck-inside” feeling, you can open the outdoor louvre halfway or all the way so that, even though you’re inside, you’re not missing out on the fresh air and sunlight outside. Outdoor louvres are a satisfying and responsible way to minimize your consumption of energy, which make them the environmental choice as well.

Outdoor Louvres and Indoor Daylight

One of the many advantages of outdoor louvre is the way that it lets you determine how much natural light is going to be brought into your spaces. Do you want lots of sunlight, or do you want shade? Outdoor louvres let you decide. When the louvres are open, you not only receive the amount of daylight that you want, but improved ventilation as well. Think of the seasons and how you enjoy them; now think of how much more you’ll enjoy then when you add outdoor louvres.

Danpal® Louvre Translucent Shading System and Outdoor Louvres

Danpal’s pioneering in the field of daylighting architecture is a triumph that matches cutting-edge innovation with natural light. That achievement is exemplified by the properties of outdoor louvres, which are designed to give daylight as much of a presence as you think is appropriate depending upon the weather and your preference. You can’t control the sky or what comes out of it, but with outdoor louvre, you’re the one controlling your own personal climate. You can count on Danpal quality and Danpal’s Microcell technology to bring you the most innovative products designed to ensure your comfort.

The Danpal Louvre Wall System Designs Sunlight and Shade for Your Interior Space

The flow of air in a building is a major factor in the comfort level of the occupants within. You don’t want too much or you’ll feel the cold, but if there’s too little moving air inside, the atmosphere is stuffy. Of course, your heating system in the winter and your air conditioning in the summer are supposed to keep things comfortable inside. That’s what they’re designed to do. However, when it’s too hot, we hurry back into the air conditioning. When it’s too cold, we can’t wait to get out of the cold and into the warmth inside. We expect to be comfortable when we’re inside a room. We enjoy being outside when the weather is pleasant, but sometimes, heat and air conditioning need help. That’s where a louvre wall system comes into play.
Ventilation is more than just cranking up the heat or the AC. Louvres provide ventilation that prevents inside air from feeling stale. A louvre wall system allows the air to flow without resistance while keeping out the rain and moisture, so that people can retain that internal comfort while keeping out the external elements that don’t belong inside. When you think about it, it’s the perfect way to add just the right amount of comfort to your living or working space.

Other Functions of Louvre Systems

You might think of a louvre system as your own personal climate control centre. Louvres are angled slats that help with ventilating a room or the inside of a structure, but they serve other purposes as well. A louvre wall system also contributes to a much broader means of weather maintenance. If it’s a beautiful day outside, the sun is shining and the temperature is comfortable, your louvres can be opened wide to let in the warmth and the light. But what if it’s too hot and too bright and the sunshine is too intense? The louvres can be closed a bit so that you have more shade. If it’s a rainy day or the temperature is cold outside, you simply close the louvres.
A louvre wall system delivers the sunlight, the shade, and the fresh air. And it also adds to the external appearance of the structure, so that the result isn’t just climate control, but esthetic appeal as well. A building doesn’t need to be just a physical structure; it can also present an attractive image in the community. Louvres provide this tool so that the consumer can, from inside, determine how much of the outside is going to enter.

The Danpal Louvre Wall System Delivers Sunshine and Shade

Danpalon® Louvre, a translucent shading system, offers maximum control over light and heat, as well as extended UV protection and high-impact resistance. It also offers control, with a louvre wall system that gives consumers the power over how much light and shade, as the weather indicates, is brought inside. The louvre wall system also lends itself to esthetics, with finishes, effects and colors that transform the exterior design of a building. Sunlight and shade for comfort, with beauty thrown in for good measure: that’s the Danpal louvre wall system.

Curtain Wall Louvres Are Your Inside Weather Forecaster

A curtain wall system is designed to keep weather out of the interior of a building. It serves as an external covering of a building where the outer walls do not have a structural purpose. Curtain wall systems aren’t required to support the building, which means that they can be light in weight. Curtain wall systems are engineered to prevent moisture and air from invading the interior of a structure, and to withstand wind loads. Curtain wall louvres are popular because they help to enhance the daylighting effect that natural light bestows upon internal areas, as well as lend themselves to other typical attributes of louvres such as improved visual support and energy efficiency.

How Curtain Wall Louvre Perform

There is an impressive array of architectural variety available in construction plans today, and curtain wall louvre add to that versatility. In order to function as a high-performing unit, the glazing frames of the louvres are completely integrated into the curtain wall system to display a seamless exterior. The louvres fit so perfectly that they can barely be distinguished from the windows or from the linear design of the curtain wall.

Advantages of Installing Curtain Wall Louvres

Ease of installation leads to cost savings, something that’s certain to delight consumers. Curtain wall louvres also support the climate control of the interior environment. Saving the cost of labor by installing the system, and saving on energy, are all pluses that add up to a win for those who chose curtain wall louvre.

What You Can Expect From the DANPAL® LOUVRE SYSTEM’s Curtain Wall Louvres

Over the course of its half century of leadership in the building industry, Danpal has built a stellar reputation as a company that puts its experience to work.

Danpal Louvre Systems Personalize Vertical Louvre Panels

Vertical louvre panels are a familiar architectural feature, in part because in many cases, building roof panels and eaves have a vertical alignment. Where the louvres match those things, continuing that pattern creates a uniform appearance that is esthetically symmetrical and pleasing to the eye. Louvre panels can be installed on the top of a structure so that the overall appearance has a more natural look. Vertical louvre panels retain the characteristic ventilation properties for which louvres are best known, but they also combine an esthetic aspect as well, offering the union of performance and appearance that is their trademark. This harmonious blend of function and visual aspect is also a characteristic of Danpal, a company that has combined a half-century of experience in the building industry with cutting-edge innovation. Danpal’s newest product line, the DANPAL® LOUVRE SYSTEM’S Translucent Polycarbonate Shading System, introduces a dynamic new shade-shift technology that offers a unique approach to external fixed louvre systems.

Ventilation and Variety: The Characteristics of Vertical Louvre Panels

While most of us will never be involved in the construction of a new sports center, or a theatre, or a magnificent edifice, we are directly engaged in the functions of the buildings where we live and work. It’s in that role as consumers and occupants that most of us assess the architectural features of our living and working space. We want to be comfortable inside the rooms where we spend our time. We want that comfort to come with just enough daylight to give us a sense that nature is within our grasp. That’s why louvres are such an asset: they provide us with fresh air and daylight when we seek it, but we decide to close them when temperatures and inclement weather have us seeking shade and warmth instead.

The Translucent Polycarbonate Shading System and Vertical Louvre Panels

Danpal is committed to the concept that its products should maintain a global vision by manufacturing materials that support a safe and sustainable environment, while recognizing the local focus of community needs. With our DanpaShade Louvre System, we produce vertical louvre panels that fulfill this mission. Our systems are built with the light-in-weight and strong-in-endurance Danpalon polycarbonate. Our Aura Louvre System works with sunlight and shade so that you can personalize your interior space for year-round comfort while increasing the energy efficiency of your building. DanpaShade Aura is the pathway to your building’s image, expressed in your own unique style by choosing from the unique two in one color options. It’s another first from Danpal!

The vitality of this latest Danpal innovation is built upon the solid foundation of traditional Danpal performance and quality. Our products are designed to withstand the battering that weather inflicts upon a building. We create systems that celebrate imagination, color and beauty. We promote systems that are harmonious with the environment. Every Danpal system and product reflects the standards of the Danpal vision to build for you and for the planet.

A Louvre Façade Lets You Play With Sunlight and Shade

 
What are louvre facades? You see them in office buildings and shopping center, in indoor and outdoor settings, enhancing the physical appearance of structures but also providing a valuable function as well. Danpal façade system are designed for the purpose of reducing the transfer of heat and the intensity of light, as well as improving a structure’s physical appearance. Installation can place the louvres against the building, or else they can be protruded in order to provide shading.
The traditional role of a typical façade system is not to play a structural role in a building’s design, but to prevent moisture from causing damage to the interior of that structure. Hail, wind, snow and rain are a building’s natural foes, one which it faces day after day. Danpal uses Microcell technology to defend a building from those harsh elements. Louvre facades are just as strong as a typical Danpal façade system, but they offer something extra. They let you, the consumer, decide how much of the external weather you want to invite inside. Nobody is going to welcome a downpour of rain or a snowstorm inside, but what about those bright and sunny days, when the air is fresh and the day is bright? That’s when Danpal’s daylighting architecture can let you and the sunlight meet on your terms while you’re inside. For those days when the sun is so bright that the glare is unbearable and the heat too intense, you still have control over how much of a hot summer day is going to come in. The louvres can be closed entirely to bring shade to your interior.

Louvre Facades Play With Sunlight and Shade

Wonder what Danpal is up to these days? What if we told you that Danpal, a leader in the building industry for over fifty years and a trailblazer in daylighting architecture, has been learning to play with sunlight and shade?
Danpalon® Louvre, a translucent shading system, empowers the customers to determine the balance of light and shade that is perfect for them, creating an internal atmosphere that meets their preferences. Louvre facades can be installed on various building types, and with the dazzling selection of colors and finishes for which Danpal is known, the result creates internal comfort and external beauty.
Along with that customized control over sunlight and shade comes the mastery over ventilation. Adding louvre facades to a structure allows for the welcome presence of fresh air coming in from outside and on a pleasant day, there’s nothing like the enticement of warm breezes to invigorate interior working and living space. If the day is cool and not conducive to open louvres, then they can be closed. This feature expands a building’s energy efficiency by allowing nature to carry some of the burden of adding comfort to the indoors, but always on your terms and according to your personal preferences.
Danpal designs the products. The architect designs the building. You, the customer, design your comfort zone.

Horizontal Louvres Let the Sunshine In

As we all know, sunlight strikes different places at different hours of the day. But sunlight, as much as we love to see it, and as much as we benefit from it, can be excessive. Glare from sunlight can prevent us from seeing as well as we would like and that’s when the sunlight turns into an impediment to better vision. So what’s the sweet spot between the right amount of sunlight and too much glare? Horizontal louvres can shade the angles differently so that sunlight is something we can enjoy without the glare. Made of a variety of different materials, including vinyl, aluminium, wood and fabric, horizontal louvres are often preferred for tall windows that might be small or narrow. Choosing horizontal louvres is a smart way to let the sunshine in!

What are the Advantages of Horizontal Louvres?

Ventilation

Louvres offer many advantages, including improved ventilation, diffusion of daylight and a reduction of glare, and privacy. Horizontal louvres, which can be angled to give control over the flow of air, maximize the ability of the window to provide a flow of air, to almost the complete width of the window.

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is a key component of horizontal louvres because the ventilation that comes from the air that comes in lets you reduce the amount of heat and cooling that you need to stay comfortable. This, in turn, lowers the amount that you pay in your energy bills.

Cleaning Ease

When it’s time to clean the louvres, you don’t have all the preparation and fuss of going outside and trying to figure out how to balance your cleaning supplies and yourself on a ladder. That’s because horizontal louvres can be cleaned from the inside, making this a household chore that is no longer one to dread.

How Horizontal Louvres Reflect a New Danpal Technology

Exterior Vertical Louvres Give You Interior Climate Control

Exterior vertical louvres not only provide a means of protecting your windows, but they also allow you to enhance the outside appearance of a building. The vertical louvres, which are set within a frame and placed on the sides of the windows, have other advantages as well. Because they are located on the exterior of the structure, they offer privacy for the occupants inside. They still deliver sunlight and fresh air, bringing the outdoors into your rooms so you reap the benefits of nature while controlling how much of it you want to enjoy. Weather is unpredictable, but exterior vertical louvres let you build the perfect forecast inside.

Here’s Your Exterior Vertical Louvre Weather Report

What’s the weather like outside? If there’s a pleasant breeze outside and you want to enjoy it even though you’re inside, you can open the louvres for optimum ventilation. But if it’s a hot, humid day, the kind of day when you want to escape the temperature, you can close the shutters and savor the shade. The marvellous thing about exterior vertical louvres is that you can enjoy just as much of weather as you prefer, for climate control on your terms!

Maintaining Your Exterior Vertical Louvres

After facing the rain, wind, and snow, your louvres might need to be cleaned, but you won’t have to worry about their ability to withstand the harsh elements because Danpal products can handle whatever the forecast brings your way. Keep in mind that because your exterior vertical louvres are located outside the structure, you may need a ladder in order to reach them. Depending upon the material that the louvres are made of, they can be hosed down and then cleaned. After the louvres are washed, they can be dried with a mop or cloth.

Danpal® Louvre Translucent Shading System and Exterior Vertical Louvres

Louvres are a very satisfying way to include the parts of nature that you like the most into your interior living and working space. There’s the comfort level to be considered, but in these times when so many people are working from home, exterior vertical louvres, when opened to let the sunlight in, also provide you with natural Vitamin D. That means that you can improve your own health just by opening the louvres.
But if it’s a hot day, and you don’t want the heat to get inside, that’s easy to take care of too. The Louvre Translucent Shading System by Danpal lets you experiment with sunlight and shade so that you select the blend of nature that’s perfect for you. You spend a lot of time inside, and now you can share your home with nature. But it’s your home, and you make the rules!
The weather continues to remain powerful outside. Rain, snow and wind are what we expect throughout the different seasons. Don’t worry, though; Danpal’s Microcell technology ensures high-impact resistance to protect the louvres. The system’s snap-on interlocking dry-glazed connectors makes sure of that.

Metal Louvres, the Stronger, More Flexible, More Sustainable Option

Louvres make an attractive addition to any structure, but you may not know that they also serve a practical purpose, one which demonstrably improves the interior structure for the occupants within. Louvres assist in the ventilation of a building and the material that the louvres are made of also brings additional benefits to the feature. They’re an easy way to add to the comfort of the people who live and work inside the structure; they add ventilation, but they also can increase or reduce the light and shade inside, depending upon preference. Metal louvres, by improving the ventilation of a building, are a sustainable way to lower your heating and cooling costs, helping to provide control over the internal climate of the structure. They are easy to maintain and, unlike other materials such as wood, don’t require a regular schedule of maintenance and upkeep. When you’re making a decision on what material to use for your choice of louvres, you’re going to want to learn more about the advantages of metal.

The Versatility of Metal Louvres

Because of their composition, metal louvre can be formed into the shape that meets the specifications of the customer so that they fit into the space that’s been designated for them. When you’re choosing Danpal products, you’ll soon learn that customer = customization. We don’t expect all buildings to be identical, so why would customer preferences be? If you choose metal louvres, you’re going to be delighted with the range of options that await you.

The Durability of Metal Louvres

Metal louvres seem lighter than those made of other materials, but it’s that lightness of weight which adds to their flexibility. But don’t be fooled, because even though they’re light in weight, they’re among the most durable of all building materials. The basic composition of metal demonstrates that flexible and durable can partner for superior building material.

Metal Louvres and the Environment

In these times when awareness of how much our individual actions affect one another and the planet, metal louvres are a particularly wise environmental choice to make. Metal is environmentally friendly because it’s recyclable and can be reused and reprocessed multiple times without sacrificing the quality of its intrinsic properties. No landfill dump for metal; it can be taken to a recycling centre when it’s no longer needed.

The Esthetics of Metal Louvres

Danpal’s commitment to quality is renowned throughout the building industry. Our dedication to our motto, Global Vision, Local Focus, makes us a steadfast partner in the pursuit of environmental responsibility. We’re also steadfast in our belief that esthetics needs to be factored into the architectural design of a structure. Metal louvre support the Danpal position on all of these metrics. When you add color and style to a building, it becomes more than a structure. It has an image, and at Danpal, we’re proud of that image. You will be too.

Wall Louvres Offer Choices That You’ll Enjoy

Louvres add a lot to a building, not only in performance but also in appearance. Wall louvres are designed to improve ventilation so that air can flow into a building while the weather remains outside. Wall louvres let the air in, and while it’s wonderful to have fresh air circulating in a room, no one wants to deal with the unwelcome parts of weather, like rain. Wall louvres can also prevent the outside dust and debris from getting inside. Wall louvres manage to do all this while adding to the esthetic appeal of a building’s exterior.

The Benefits of Ventilation in a Building

Most of us spend the majority of our day and night inside, which means that we aren’t getting a lot of fresh air. After a day spent in air that’s stale, we feel a little stale ourselves. No one says that outside air is always pure; pollution is a factor we all deal with. But inside air, without good ventilation to bring in fresh air and move the stale air, has its own negative qualities; there can be bacteria, mold, and pollutants. That’s why wall louvres can help keep your working space and living space well ventilated to provide good air flow.

Choose The Danpal® Danpashade Louvre System For Your Wall Louvres

Aluminium Louvres: Stronger, Lighter, Better

What are Aluminium Louvres?

Louvres are a timeless architectural construction that adds to the heating and cooling of a building as well as its visual appearance. Of course, the material that the louvres are made of has a significant effect on the overall effectiveness of the ventilation and lighting. With aluminium louvres, climate control becomes affordable and sustainable, an advantage not only for the environment but also for your household budget. The very nature of aluminium is its charm because it can take a beating from the elements and still retain its strength. In fact, aluminium’s strength-to-weight ratio makes it especially convenient to use.

The Environmental Appeal of Aluminium Louvres

The 21st century faces a world in which the planet on which we live faces unparalleled risks as a result of the manner in which previous generations have ignored the threats posed to our air, water and soil. As people in today’s world recognize that we must promote sustainability if we hope to heal the planet, the popularity of substances like aluminium has increased. The energy efficiency of sustainable aluminium louvres makes them the choice of people who want to live a lifestyle that works in harmony with the environment.

Aluminium is already an affordable building material; add that to the money you’re saving with your air conditioning and your heat and you’re looking at a practical and economical way to cut expenses as you cut your carbon footprint.
Louvres have been around since the medieval era, where you’d find them on turrets or roofs to provide ventilation. It would have been a fairly primitive addition to the architecture of the period, but fortunately, there have been some innovations since that era. Under the innovative direction of Danpal, a building company with over half a century of experience in the industry, the DANPAL®LOUVRE SYSTEM provides maximum control over heat and light. Balancing heat and light doesn’t just have implications for the comfort of those who are inside the structure. Louvres also affect the building itself, enhancing the exterior and utilizing shading to relieve the heat load of a building. Louvres are a vital asset in the move toward sustainable buildings, and aluminium louvres bring their inherent strengths to this design. Because of their flexibility, durability, esthetic appeal and environmental advantages, aluminium louvres are a popular and affordable choice to reduce heating bills while promoting sustainability. Aluminium is recyclable, so it can be processed and used multiple times while retaining its physical traits.
You want a house that looks nice. You want energy bills that are within reason. You want to be comfortable. With aluminium louvres, you meet all of these metrics without stinting on esthetic appeal. It’s time to look to aluminium as one of the solutions to our environmental needs.
