Double Wall Polycarbonate Sheet System In Building Designs

Double wall polycarbonate

 

Seen from the outside, a double wall polycarbonate sheet, you will find a building that’s designed well and made with quality products appears to be a compact unit.  However, there’s no way to see, from the outside, all the individual pieces that are in play within to keep the building standing and functioning.  When you glance at the Magic Cube in France, you immediately notice the brilliant colors that give the structure such a dynamic appearance.  You might even detect, if you’re familiar with Danpal’s world-renowned reputation for developing quality materials, the brand of a company that has imprinted its excellence on every structure that’s made using its products.  But you aren’t noticing the internal pieces that make the building one which is durable, weather-resistant and energy-efficient. What you don’t notice is at the heart of the Danpal name.  The double glazed facade detail are the reason why the weather stays out and the heat and cooling stay inside. Knowing that, you can appreciate the achievement that Danpal accomplishes by uniting quality with strength.

How the Double Wall Polycarbonate Sheet System Works

Keeping insulation dry is central to a building’s architectural health.  Danpal wall cladding uses a double wall polycarbonate sheet system to safeguard a building’s insulation so that the moisture that weather leaves behind does not invade the internal space.  Danpal polycarbonate wall cladding is designed with an air gap to provide natural ventilation; the convective motion is what keeps the insulation moisture-free.  Double-notching, connector-bound microcell polycarbonate sheets give a building the invisible muscle that keeps rain, snow and hail from penetrating the exterior barrier. 

Translucent Multiwall Polycarbonate Sheet Protection

You don’t notice that a multiwall polycarbonate sheet, an invisible army of translucent polycarbonate sheeting is protecting the building from the damage that weather can do. You can admire the beauty of a building and appreciate its function.  But at Danpal, we make it our business to reinforce what you can’t see with the expertise we’ve gained after over a half century of developing innovative products.

How Double Wall Polycarbonate Became So Popular As A Building Material

Actually, in its early days, polycarbonate was used for commercial construction alone, because it was expensive and because it seemed more suitable for high-profile venues like restaurants. Now, of course, it’s known for its strength and for its resistance to the rough weather elements. That increased demand for the product, and the appreciation for what double wall polycarbonate panels can provide for a building, brought the price down to reasonable levels. Polycarbonate wall systems remain popular in commercial structures, but architects also employ double wall polycarbonate panels in residential construction as well.

How A Polycarbonate Wall Panel System Reflects Modern Tastes And Priorities

The architect designing a building for today’s consumer is addressing concerns which are both pragmatic and visionary. The light transmission of double polycarbonate panels is approximately 85%, creating less condensation. Because air can be trapped between the walls, the increase in energy efficiency reduces heating costs by as much as 50%.

A polycarbonate wall section saves money on installation costs because its light weight makes it unbelievably easy to install. If sizing needs to be changed onsite, regular tools can take care of the job. The components that make up a polycarbonate wall are rigid, yet they can be customized. You can’t get much more practical than in the construction industry.

At the same time, that double wall polycarbonate sheet that proved its toughness and durability throughout the building process becomes a wellness coach for the occupants of the building. Natural light is favored over artificial lighting not only because it enhances visual ability, but because, as more daylight is brought inside, it improves the overall physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual ambience for those inside the building. Studies have shown that exterior wall panels transform internal living and working spaces into holistic areas where natural light, controlled for glare and shade, promote more productivity and optimism within.

A polycarbonate wall panel system lasts longer, reinforcing the concept that we ought not to design buildings as if they’re disposable. A polycarbonate wall, which does not contain materials that could be hazardous to humans, also possesses fire-resistant capabilities, making it especially efficient in areas that are fire-prone. Double wall polycarbonate takes going green in a brand new direction by being good for plants! By keeping out UV rays, double wall polycarbonate panels, which have a cellular structure able to diffuse direct sunlight, are ideal for greenhouses.

As we move deeper into the 21st century, architects are learning how to merge the functional requirements of construction with the holistic elements that benefit the planet and the people—and plants!—that depend upon it. It’s a new mindset for a new era, one particularly suited for a company like Danpal, which lives out its Global Vision, Local Focus motto in all our business practices.
