In an interview, architect Oscar Torrejón described his satisfaction with the Danpal products used in the refurbishment of the Dominican Republic’s Studio Legal Terrero & Mejía. He said that the Danpal products he worked with “exceeded all expectations.” That level of praise is familiar to the Danpal team because, after over half a century in the industry, our reputation for quality is celebrated across the globe. It explains why we can offer the best polycarbonate roofing sheets, so that a building, right from the top, starts at the top!
But you don’t have to be an architect to be a confirmed pro-polycarbonate fan. Even a do-it-yourselfer can tackle a DIY project with confidence, thanks to the lightweight, durable, easily installed polycarbonate sheets.
DIY – Polycarbonate Roofing Systems
For many people, the COVID19 pandemic was a good opportunity to get some home repair projects done around the house. During that period when we couldn’t go anywhere anyway, many of us took the opportunity to get creative with a toolbox. Many of the do-it-yourself amateurs found out that they did a pretty good job, whether they were noticing places where the roof needed some repair, or they wanted a project to occupy their time and leave them with results that they could be proud of. What they found was that it was a lot easier to work with polycarbonate roofing sheets because they’re light in weight and easy to carry. Why lug around a heavy load when you have the option of going light and going better? That’s right, going better, because lightweight polycarbonate roof panels don’t sacrifice strength or durability. The projects moved along quickly because of the ease of installation. Injuries were reduced because the materials were easier to lift and move.
If your latest building project is a greenhouse or a conservatory, you might want to consider multiwall polycarbonate roof panels. Not only are they durable, but when combined with as many as seven layers, they can provide excellent insulation for the space beneath.
Solid polycarbonate sheets present another option for building designs that makes them ideal for greenhouses or balcony screens. Installation is safer than what traditional glass panels offer, and these shatterproof polycarbonate roofing systems deliver 200 times more impact resistance than double glazing can provide.
The Best Polycarbonate Roofing Sheets Make the Best Roofing System
Polycarbonate is a building material that automatically enhances the composition of whatever architectural aspect for which it’s used. Our polycarbonate sheets are made with microcell technology, which is celebrated for being the most advanced system used in daylight applications. As a pioneer in daylighting architecture, Danpal recognized the advantages of polycarbonate from the beginning. You want a roofing system that can withstand a range of weather conditions: Danpal polycarbonate roofing panels can do that. You want a roofing system that delivers the ideal balance between light and thermal dynamics: Danpal polycarbonate roofing sheets can do that.
You rely on your roof to shield your home or business from the outside elements. A polycarbonate roofing system does that and more. In addition to keeping you and your family warm and dry inside no matter what the weather is like outside, the polycarbonate roofing system has an added advantage: its esthetic qualities enhance your home’s appearance, adding to its value and appeal.
How the Polycarbonate Roof Panels Achieve Results And What Are The Advantages
Weather is a tough adversary. No matter where you live, there’s sure to be an element of weather that you find especially challenging. If it’s challenging for you, just think of what a building has to put up with from the outdoors! But Danpal products are tougher, and our polycarbonate roofing sheets are designed with a double-tooth, grip-lock connection for high resistance to powerful winds, heavy snow, and hail. Flexibility is also a trait of our advantages of polycarbonate roofing sheets, which have snap-on, dry-glazed connectors. In order to provide a long life for the roofing system, the Danpalon® panels have a co-extruded UV protection.
Factor in the high-impact resistance with low-scratch resistance and it’s obvious why polycarbonate roofing sheets are the building material of choice for architects. It’s a material that’s easy to make, cut, and mold, and there’s nothing a builder likes better than working with a product that enhances the efficiency of the project. Polycarbonate can be processed and shaped at room temperature because its glass transition temperature of 147 degrees (C) allows it to soften gradually when the temperature increases. Significant plastic deformations won’t make polycarbonate crack or break. In prototyping applications needing transparent or electrically non-conductive components, polycarbonate sheets beat sheet metal, which lacks this versatility.
Here’s another added bonus in using polycarbonate materials that you might not have thought of. Because polycarbonate roofing panels are lighter in weight, they are easier to transport, which means that carbon emissions are lower during transit. Maybe you never thought of roof repair as the smart ecological choice, but if you have a polycarbonate roof panels, you’re already making sound environmental decisions.
