Some choices are easy when it comes to building materials. You are looking for materials that are strong, durable, and functional. Esthetic choices are not quite so cut-and-dried, but nevertheless, you want something that’s attractive.
It’s obvious that strength needs to be a component of building material because the structure has to be able to withstand the relentless power of the natural elements. Polycarbonate sheets offer you the variety of options that provides strength, durability, and functionality, with a choice of multiwall or solid format. You’ll get the appearance that you want without sacrificing any quality of performance.
ADVANTAGES OF POLYCARBONATE SHEETS
Polycarbonate’s versatility allows it to offer the appearance of glass for those who are seeking a specific look but want something stronger. Polycarbonate has been hardened so that it’s 200 times stronger than glass, making it capable of withstanding elevated resistance levels.
Yet it’s only half the weight of glass. If you want a building material that looks like glass, solid polycarbonate sheets are a clear, flat sheeting that will oblige. Or, you can choose the multiwall polycarbonate sheets, which are made out of hollow air chambers. Both are equally impressive in strength.
Another plus for using polycarbonate sheets is their flexibility. Even though polycarbonate is so strong, it’s easy to work with and that makes installation fast and simple. There’s little disruption and the ease of the process is a time-saver and a money saver. If you want more evidence of how flexible polycarbonate is, you’ll be impressed to learn that it’s used to make security screens, windshields, farming machinery, and the guard materials in machinery parts.
WHY POLYCARBONATE SHEETS ARE THE BETTER CHOICE AGAINST WEATHER
It makes sense that our research and development innovators would work to create a tough, resilient building material that’s strong enough for today’s climate. We’ve all seen the way in which our weather patterns have dramatically changed.
While it was not unusual in the past to have an occasional hotter-than-usual summer, we’ve arrived at a time when record-breaking heat seems to be an annual occurrence. Previous years have seen devastating hurricanes, but now they seem to strike with alarming regularity, wreaking havoc and costing billions as communities seek to repair the damage.
We’re warned in advance that a powerful winter storm is on the way, crossing miles of land and leaving downed power lines and stranded cars in its wake as residents shovel their way out of the snowfall.
As extreme weather becomes the unwelcome guest in our lives, we rely upon our buildings to keep us safe, dry, and comfortable. That’s one of the numerous ways in which polycarbonate rises above the other products. Its strength and flexibility make it the barrier against the weather.
Danpal has taken our commitment to protect buildings from weather a step further with our Ventilated Raincreen System, which is made with polycarbonate. Even when wet weather is raging outside, insulation inside remains dry.
Weather isn’t going to go away. Polycarbonate sheets are here to provide us with a defense against those times when Mother Nature seems to be on the warpath.
