The simplest definition of double glazed glass is that it’s a window with two panes of glass, which creates a double glazed sealed unit. The two panes of glass are separated by a spacer bar which creates an air gap. The strength of this double glazed façade is the boost it supplies to thermal insulation, allowing a room to retain its internal heat and preventing the external chill from intruding. With double skin façade detail, the external layer of glass is typically tougher and more resistant to the weather so that it’s capable of withstanding the forces of nature when they strike. What may seem like a humble window is actually one of Danpal’s façade glazing systems made from polycarbonate, capable of you warm inside when it’s cold outside.
It wasn’t called a façade glazing system a long time ago, when technology hadn’t advanced to the point that windows were regarded as an effective means of keeping warmth within a structure. History differs on who first came up with the idea that double panes of glass, now known as double glazed glass, could keep us warmer inside while winter winds howled outside, but whether it was the Americans who patented “Thermopane” in the 1930s or 19th century Scots who added that vital second pane of glass to the windows, or the Romans who first devised their own version of a glass panel façade, it’s certain that Danpal has taken the technique to new heights of efficiency with the use of double panes of polycarbonate, and what a difference that has made! With half a century of expertise and experience in the building materials industry, our façade glazing systems have created a reputation for excellence.
You Can Count On Glass Facades For Energy Efficiency
Double glazed glass has the power to do wonders for the way in which your home or workplace promotes responsible energy usage. On the simplest level, energy efficiency in the home or workplace relies upon dry insulation. This can be a challenge if the building does not have adequate protection against the weather, and a glass façade or a polycarbonate façade is one way to provide that protection. Snow and rain, wind and hail, and even heat and sunlight, are powerful forces of nature, and if they manage to penetrate the interior of a building, it won’t take long before moisture makes itself at home in the insulation, compromising its ability to maintain energy efficiency. With a façade glazing system, the building is a structural advocate for greater energy efficiency that also enhances the comfort of those inside.
When moisture attacks insulation, there are several different outcomes, none of them good. The insulation is no longer able to maintain a consistent flow of energy within the building. You may find that you have to adjust the temperatures for heating and cooling. That’s because, without the strength of Danpal’s façade glazing systems, energy is escaping from within the building. Wasted energy is one of the threats to environmental safety. Paying for wasted energy is also a threat to your economic well-being; check your utility bills to see if you’re paying more than you should be. There are a lot of things you want to spend your money on, but wasted energy isn’t one of them! Double glazed glass, on the other hand, is an excellent investment. Danpal’s double polycarbonate sheet will give you all the advantages of glass and will be even more economical than glass.
Danpal’s engineers and design experts understand this. That’s why our double skin facade system is so popular with architects and their clients. We understand that today’s consumers are committed to lifestyles that use energy wisely, and they expect their homes and workplaces to meet these environmental standards. Buildings have an obligation to the planet as well as to the people who live and work inside their walls. But even though weather is a part of nature, it has to stay outside where it belongs. With Danpal glass polycarbonate systems, the double-click locking seam’s higher load resistance is part of the protection against the weather. The snap-on connections are the means by which weather remains outside instead of getting inside. With Danpal’s façade glazing systems, which are made from polycarbonate, cutting-edge technology of today meets the timeless goal of staying comfortable and dry inside, regardless of what’s going on, weather-wise, outside. Double glazed glass is the way to go!
Bring In The Daylight With A Glass Curtain Wall Facade
Danpal facade glazing systems are one of the exciting ways that our products have redefined the construction industry. The outer walls of the system are designed not for a structural role but to prevent weather from penetrating inside. There’s an esthetic advantage in having a curtain glass façade system installed. It’s the way that natural light can be a visible presence inside the building. Danpal, a pioneer in daylighting architecture, creates façade systems from polycarbonate that incorporate light into the design of a building, nurturing an atmosphere where the occupants both see better and feel better. Bringing natural light into internal working and living spaces has a dramatic effect on the people inside. And why not? Human beings crave the light, so it’s no wonder that we feel better in it. We’re more productive when we have daylight around us. And with Danpal daylighting, we can control the amount of light that we prefer, while reducing the glare. Daylighting and double glazed glass or polycarbonate can do so much to enhance internal comfort while working with natural light to create a more holistic environment. Did you ever think that your home or office could actually improve how well you see and feel? Polycarbonate and glass façade systems can be a part of creating a more holistic home and workplace environment. If you have to be inside working, isn’t it better to have daylight inside with you?
Danpal’s facade glazing systems are one of the ways in which our motto, Global Vision, Local Focus, demonstrates our dedication to providing our customers with products that promote energy efficiency and support environmental responsibility. Consider the ways in which a glazed curtain wall can enhance your comfort while expanding your commitment to energy efficiency and we’re sure that you’ll find satisfaction with Danpal’s products.
