Danpal’s Options for Clear Plastic Roof Panels
For over 50 years, Danpal has been in the forefront of creating and installing innovative roofing systems solutions that offer optimal thermal and solar comfort. Giving you the option of choosing from skylights, roofs, facades and more, Danpal is the choice for your Skylight solutions. Danpal roofing can be installed above and below various different kinds of buildings. The plastic roofing uses snap-on interlocking dry-glazed connectors that are made from either aluminum or polycarbonate. With plastic roofing, a building has the benefits of superior weather protection, energy efficiency, and an attractive appearance.
Polycarbonate Plastic Roof Panel and Weather
You might think that the weather has it in for roofs. After all, the roof is the first target for rain, snow, and all the rough elements that pour out of the sky like they’re sent on an aerial mission to destroy. That just means that the roofing you select needs to be strong enough to handle the attack. Plastic roofing, thanks to the overall strength and quality of its design, as well as the quality of the materials that are used to create the roofing system, can be relied upon to withstand weather and offer high-impact resistance. Plastic roofing also offers protection against the effects of the sun. We don’t always consider the effects of sunlight on a building, but Danpal’s polycarbonate roofing panels offer UV protection so that the roof remains in good condition for a longer period of time.
The Benefits of Light with Plastic Roofing
The roof on top of a building has a powerful effect on everything that’s underneath, and this is where the combination of plastic roofing and light works to such a winning advantage. Every space in the building needs light in order to be fully functional. Polycarbonate roofing allows the light to enter, balancing it so that it’s emitted in just the right amounts. Natural light adds much to our living space, and it also provides a boost for us as well.
Easy Installation of Plastic Roofing Systems
Plastic roofing is light in weight and won’t put undue pressure on the structure. Working with lightweight materials makes installation smooth and easy, saving time and money because the work happens so effortlessly. But don’t worry; lightweight doesn’t mean weak. Polycarbonate roofing is strong.
Lookin’ Good with Plastic Roofing
Once the roofing is in place, the visual effect is stunning. Much of that is due to the transparent materials that are used, which provide the ideal balance of light that works so well for interior space. Because of Danpal’s amazing array of colors, finishes, aspects and spectacular effects, you’ll have no trouble finding just the right look to release the building’s creative image.
Polycarbonate Roofing is a Plus for the Environment
Danpal, committed to thinking both globally and locally, maintains a high regard for sustainability and protecting the environment. That’s why indoor air quality is a high priority for the company. What affects Danpal customers affects the world, because Danpal, which operates on five continents, knows that the globe is home to all of us.
How Polycarbonate Plastic Roof Panels Handle Stress
You might never have thought of the effects of stress on roofs, but plastic roofing systems are particularly adept at handling stress. Polycarbonate is widely recognized for its incredible strength, and that’s an important feature when you consider what a roof has to endure. Danpal’s plastic roof systems are designed so that they can maintain their intrinsic durability even while enduring the extremes of fierce heat and intense cold. Snow is heavy and rain can be destructive, but those clear plastic roof panels are up to the challenge. Clear plastic panels may not look like the most imposing building material on the market, but don’t be deceived by looks. Consider their properties and you’ll better understand how much more protection they offer than more traditional roofing systems.
Trust Polycarbonate Clear Plastic Sheet To Enhance Structural Integrity
It’s puzzling for some to understand how simple clear plastic sheets made of polycarbonate, one of the most lightweight of all the roofing materials on the market, can make good on its promise of superior strength. After all, polycarbonate is twice as light in weight as a similarly sized glass panel, and these clear plastic roof panels weigh less than a metal roof. But there’s no hiding place in a clear plastic sheet. The strength is there. Architects know that when they design a building, they can count on polycarbonate to actually improve its structural integrity. The low weight of polycarbonate ensures that plastic roofing material places less stress upon the support beams and walls. Consider how this would affect a structure such as a greenhouse, whose walls are traditionally made of glass. But if the design employs clear plastic roof panels made of polycarbonate, not glass, there’s less stress upon the greenhouse walls. That leads to a longer life span for the greenhouse. Less money spent on roof repairs means more money can be spent on plants!
Calculating The Cost Savings That Come With Polycarbonate Plastic Roof Panels
Buildings are a major investment. There’s the cost of the architect whose design is the inspiration for the project. There are the building materials which comprise the structure’s actual construction. But what about shipping? You can see how shipping costs for a plastic roof system would be much more affordable than roofing that’s made of metal. When you calculate the delivery costs of lightweight plastic roofing material, plus the reduced time that it takes for workers to install it, you can see what we mean when we promise you that a Danpal plastic roof system is an investment that will save you money in the long run!
