Danpal – The pros and cons of installing skylights

danpal

When you are designing a building, there are so many different variables that you have to consider. Even the tiniest of features needs to be thoroughly thought out, exploring the different options in terms of the materials to use, the design of the materials, the colour, the price and how this feature will fit in with the rest of the structure.

This is why the top design professionals can charge the big bucks, they know how to manage all of these variables and come out with an end product that is pleasing in all aspects.

One decision that is difficult to make a lot of the time is whether or not you should install skylights into the building you are designing.

They are such an aesthetically pleasing way in which you can allow a lot more natural light enter into a building, but they also come with some drawbacks that you need to account for. At Danpal, the team is experienced in which situations are suited to skylights and at which times it is best to avoid using them.

Pros

The space will look larger

If the space you are designing is small or there is going to be a lot of activity in it, skylights are a great way of giving the illusion of there being more space. It makes the ceiling look as if it is wider and the sunlight and moonlight will be able to fill up the room. This will relax the mind and make the room a lot more visually appealing, as it won’t appear to be as cramped.

Potential for solar heating

When the sun is shining through the skylights, there will be a natural heat coming through that will help somewhat to warm up a room. By using quality skylights, such as the Danpavault system provided by Danpal, you can achieve great thermal insulation and extended UV protection, which will keep the inhabitants and contents of the space in great condition.

Cons

Potential problems if you don’t use a trusted system

When it comes to skylights, you have to ensure that you are going for quality rather than trying to save costs. By utilising subpar skylights, you may experience leaks over time, which will cause damage to the space and all of its contents.

The Danpal Danpavault system

danpalThe Danpavault system is one of the best types of skylight that is on the market today.

No matter what your need is, this skylight will be able to solve it. They are of an unlimited length, so they can be easily integrated with all different roof types.

When it comes to installation, this system is very flexible. You can have them self-supporting or alternatively you may decide to have them installed over a metal structure. There are also additional options that you can decide to implement through aluminium framing, such as bars, connectors or spacers.

The special nature of the Danpavault’s structure means that light is evenly diffused, which leads to long term durability, as well as effective thermal insulation and UV protection.

Finally, the structure is extremely resistant to high impacts and damage from hail, so you don’t have to worry about these factors if the structure is located in a particularly turbulent climate.
