Façade Materials: What a Difference Daylight Makes

Façade Materials

You’d think it would be obvious: add daylight to the inside of a building for better lighting and enhanced atmosphere. It is obvious, but only Danpal has recognized how much daylight inside a building can transform a structure. With a half-century of experience in the building industry, Danpal has been a pioneer in daylighting techniques, holding fast to the belief that a well-designed building should offer as much natural light as possible. That’s why Danpal façade materials are such an advance in building products. Danpal, the first company to develop the Danpalon® translucent panel standing seam system, has three decades of experience in providing façade materials that are used all over the globe. Danpal proves that daylight travels well!

Buildings are for people. Filling the living and working spaces with natural light gives people a workplace that’s more conducive to productivity because people are spending their day in a happier, healthier environment. Danpal’s philosophy is that developing solutions that meet visual, thermal, and energy needs should not exclude holistic benefits. Danpal feels that building designs should begin with an understanding of how the sun shapes our experience. Creating façade materials that follow through on this vison makes Danpal a leader in what we might describe as “user-friendly” buildings.

Knowing What There is to Know About Daylighting

The excitement that is created when daylight becomes part of the building toolkit has inspired a new perception about architecture. Natural light is regarded as usable square footage internally, which expands ways of capitalizing on the uses of the building project. What we’ve found is that light has a genuine effect on how people feel, think, and work. Imagine the possibilities if a building can actually be part of the wellness process that generates an improved attitude and sense of optimism.

Technology Shapes the Effectiveness of Danpal Façade Materials

Danpal façade materials are highly regarded for their ability to resist weather as well as for their support of daylighting techniques. Danpal’s Microcell technology has a double-click locking seam that promises higher load resistance, with a snap-lock connection system to make weather stay where it belongs, which is outside, not inside. The cell structure of the façade materials possess high-quality thermal insulation. This means that façade materials made by Danpal can fight back when weather is at its most destructive.

Another advantage to Danpal’s façade materials is the fact that they’re light in weight. This makes them easier to work with and to install. When a process is easier and simpler to accomplish, the end result means less money spent and less inconvenience experienced.

Façade Materials Create a More Beautiful Building

Daylighting is one of our most famous esthetic features, but it’s not the only one. Color is another way of making your building stand out. Whether you decide to layer different shades of color, or alternate dark and light colors, you’re giving your building the opportunity to show just how much façade materials expand your creative options. Knowing the community in which your building will be located is the first step in determining what your building’s appearance should be. A building with a contemporary look in a block of traditional structures will indeed stand out, but perhaps not in the way that you would like. With a little research, you can design the building that looks just right!
