Façade materials add to a building’s performance

FAÇADE MATERIALS

Are façade materials giving an add value to a building’s performance? What are the things that we notice about the buildings where we work and sleep, shop, use any exercise bikes at home, and seek entertainment? Do they serve the function for which they are designed? Are they warm in the cold weather and cool in the hot weather? Is the lighting sufficient for our needs? Are they built with our comfort in mind? There are other things that we don’t notice immediately. We may not notice if they’re built out of sustainable materials or if they conform to the most current environmental standards. We are unlikely to notice if there is mold or dampness in parts of the structure where we don’t go. We might not always notice the behind-the-scenes concerns that are part of a building’s hidden performance.

But what’s the first thing that you notice about a building? You notice how it looks.

EXTERIOR FAÇADE MATERIALS ACCENTUATE A BUILDING’S APPEAL

A traditional style of architecture for a building located in a trendy hot spot would seem out of place, just as a cutting-edge design would be ill-suited in a neighborhood of stately eighteenth-century structures. Danpal’s façade materials allow a building to take on an appearance that can be customized to suit its environment while adding marvelous color and texture options that give the structure a unique flavor. Lighting is an option that can be enhanced with façade materials. If you’d like to supplement the look of your building with depth to its perspective, you can layer different shades of color. Choosing from Danpal’s columns and brick stacks gives even more options. Design a building that people will notice by choosing façade materials.

POLYCARBONATE FAÇADE LET LIGHT SHINE IN

Studies have shown that people, whether in the workplace or in their homes, feel better and are more productive when they are in an environment which adds natural light to the setting. But you don’t need a study to tell you that. You already know that you see better, for one thing, when natural light is available. You feel better; your mood improves and you benefit from an attitude that takes its cues from the uplifting atmosphere of natural light. Façade materials benefit from Danpal’s pioneering daylighting architecture, which is an architectural way to include sunshine as part of your decorating design.

STRENGH COMES WITH FAÇADE MATERIALS

Now that we’ve accounted for the many features of façade materials that you’ll notice in a building, it’s time to concentrate on what you might not notice right away, and that’s the strength. A building has to meet the expectations of its function; if it’s an office, a medical facility, a workplace, or a residence, it conforms to the intended usage for which it was designed. But strength is a factor that contributes not only to the function but also to the building’s stamina and life span. Danpal’s microcell technology has dramatically increased the strength of our building materials. That means that weather, one of the most powerful and potential damaging threats to a building’s wellbeing, is held at bay. That’s because our snap-lock connection system is designed to prevent snow, wind, hail and rain from invading your interior space. The impressive quality of our thermal insulation can do its job the right way, which allows your energy usage to perform the way it’s supposed to. Façade materials keep your insulation dry, which in turn keeps your energy usage efficient and your year-round temperature constant.

What you may not notice about a building is important. That’s why Danpal notices these things for you.
