How Does Polycarbonate Roofing Provide Shade With Color?

To all who wonder, “does polycarbonate roofing provide shade” the answer is that a skylight shading system is uniquely designed to offer protection from the sun even while admitting natural light inside. The reduction in the effects of the sun does create a degree of shading, along with the UV protection for which even a single polycarbonate roofing panel in clear format is justly well known. A colored façade with different tints can provide different levels of shading, but the broader purpose of polycarbonate plastic roof panels, such as what can be seen in a greenhouse, is for the optimum light transmission that controls the effects of the sun.

How Does Polycarbonate Roofing Provide Shade?

Polycarbonate roofing systems offers a tremendous amount of versatility, so how much shade is provided depends upon the system that you choose.

For instance, you might choose a polycarbonate roofing system for your patio so that you get protection from harmful UV rays while you’re sitting outside, but you’re still able to enjoy the sunlight that comes in. Translucent polycarbonate roofing that blocks out close to 100 percent of the UV rays isn’t stingy with the sunshine. UV rays, as we know, can lead to skin cancer if we don’t shield ourselves from the danger. But there are many benefits to sunlight which are also important to consider. Sunlight is a source of Vitamin D, something that we all need. In the fall and winter, when sunlight is more scarce and darkness predominates, many people suffer from seasonal affective disorder or SAD. Natural light has been shown to improve our moods so that we feel more optimistic and productive.

Tinted polycarbonate roof panels are a fairly recent development in the building industry. These colored polycarbonate sheets with a special coating reflect infrared radiation outward. The right finish eases the glare of the sun so that the interior space still has sufficient lighting even though it’s more evenly dispersed.

There are clear versions of polycarbonate that are as transparent as glass, but weigh half as much and are a lot easier to work with. And when you decide that tinted plastic roof panels are the way to go, you reap these rewards of working with polycarbonate.

Skylight Shading Systems To Balance The Natural Light

Finding the ideal balance between sunlight and shade is a matter of personal preference. Some people like to be in a room that seems to glow with natural light; others prefer a balance. What no one wants is glare, and reducing glare is one of the key features of a skylight shading system.
Having a built-in polycarbonate skylight dome in the structure can provide the natural light you crave without the glare that comes with having too much of a good thing.

Danpal has mastered the formula for providing a balance between sunlight and shade. The Danpal translucent skylight system, which can be installed on both commercial and residential spaces, provides a happy medium for those who love the sunshine, and those who love the shade, while sharing the same interior spaces.

How Does Polycarbonate Roofing Provide Shade Using Colored Facades?

Colored polycarbonate sheets are the perfect marriage of performance and esthetics. Color adds so much to the appearance of a structure, defining a building as modern or traditional, bold or neutral. When color brings its beauty to the function of polycarbonate, the result is a blend of light and color that influences the shading. Thanks to the adaptations provided by cutting-edge technology, a smart façade can even adapt to the conditions of the environment as it controls the output and input of heat while controlling ventilation and maximizing natural light.

As a building material, polycarbonate is valued because of its high quality, its durability, its light weight, its resistance to UV rays, and its ability to withstand extreme temperatures. As the sentry standing guard over the amount of light and shade that comes inside, a skylight shading system with colored polycarbonate gives you the best of the natural world and the best of what technology has created.

Sun Shading Systems: The Smarter Way To Stay Comfortable Inside

Have you noticed how much smarter the world is these days? We have smartphones, smart televisions, smart homes, even smart clothes. Did you know that even daylight has gotten smarter? When you consider how effective sun shading systems are at measuring the amount of light and shade that are admitted into a building, you’ll have a whole new respect for the possibilities of sun shading architecture. Thanks to Danpal’s intelligent daylighting, known as Danpal CONTROLITE®, there’s now an exterior solar shading system that offers complete control of the preferred level of indoor light, no matter what time of year it is, or even what time of day. A louvre shading system transfers control of light and shade from nature to you and, just like that, you’re able to alter the effects of the weather. Living smarter means living better and with Danpal’s sun shading system, it also means living the way you want to live by customizing nature to suit you.

What Does The Danpal Sun Shading System Offer:

  • Optimal comfort during daylight’s changing conditions
    Thanks to the flexibility of sun shading facades, being inside no longer means being a hostage to outside glare if the sunlight is too bright. Staying comfortable no matter what’s going on outside has given the twenty-first century a dynamic new way to partner with nature!
  • Sustainable design
    The environment benefits from modern shading technology that lets consumers control the amount of direct solar radiation that enters living and work spaces. With vertical sun shading at work, a building’s carbon footprint is eased in terms of its internal temperature. Comfort for the consumer and support for the environment is always a Danpal priority.
  • Energy efficiency
    Because of the reduced need for artificial lighting, and the addition of passive heating and cooling methods into a building’s performance, solar shading facades make it possible to increase personal comfort while relying less on traditional HVAC systems.
  • Money saved thanks to reduced use of heating and cooling systems
    You know what your heating bills look like in the winter, as well as your air conditioning costs in the summer. It’s easy to translate architectural sunshades into money saved!

How the Architectural Sunshades System – CONTROLITE® Works

With a translucent glazing panel that has integrated, rotating louvers, the transmission levels of daylight can be optimized to suit your personal preference. CONTROLITE® also controls solar heat gain so that an increase in temperature doesn’t present an obstacle to your personal comfort when you’re inside. Because of the innovative way that sunshade in building construction transforms the outdoors into a willing partner for consumer comfort, humans and structures are working together for the first time in history. Heat and light levels change outside during the day, but Danpal’s sun shading system is designed to nullify that schedule by altering the transmission of light, shade and solar heat gain. By maximizing daylight during the cold of winter, and blocking solar gain when summer heat is at its fiercest, this solar shading is your advocate for weather control.

A Sun Shading System That’s Designed For Energy Consumption and Sustainability

Holding ourselves accountable for the manner in which we treat the environment is the mark of today’s energy consumer. It’s also the mark of Danpal’s innovative research and development. We’re known as the company that adheres to the Global Vision, Local Focus business model by designing products and shading systems that keep customers happy because they trust us to do right by the planet. Our exterior solar shading system’s Controlite® panels are integrated into buildings with energy-efficient design, so that the designers can earn credit points according to the green building ratings.

Movable shading retracts on cloudy days outside, so that natural light and its accompanying solar gain can come inside, reducing dependence on heating and electric lighting. When building occupants opt for natural sunlight, fresh air and ventilation instead of turning on the heating and cooling systems, energy usage is reduced without a loss of comfort for people. Shade shifting at its best defeats heat gain at its worst.

Get Smart With Architectural Sunshades

  • Rotating louvers that adjust their position throughout the day in order to optimize the amount of outdoor natural light that enters inside spaces.
  • A sun shading system that gives heating and cooling systems a break during times of the year when outside light, heat, and air can create a comfortable inside atmosphere.
  • Reduced dependence on energy, so that personal lifestyles reflect a commitment to sustainability.
  • Paying less for utility costs without sacrificing comfort.

It’s not just appliances and gadgets that are smarter these days. Consumers who choose Danpal’s are pretty smart, too.
