A polycarbonate skylight dome is Danpal’s answer to nature: Mother Nature provides the natural light and Danpal refines the sunshine by regulating the temperature and adding UV protection. A polycarbonate dome gives you the best that natural light can deliver, while adding features like durability, weather resistance and flame retardant capability. When you add a clear polycarbonate dome to your residence or business, you’re transforming your interior living and working space into an authentic comfort zone. The result is improved illumination, increased productivity, and an overall sense of wellbeing for the building occupants.
If you’re interested in finding out more about the remarkable benefits of a polycarbonate dome, just consider how much buildings that have installed naturalite skylight systems can offer in terms of natural light and weather protection. People inside the building are protected from the cold and dampness that accompany rain and snow, but at the same time, they can enjoy the sounds and sights of what’s going on outside. And of course, the natural light itself needs no description—we all see better and feel better when daylight comes inside. With our impressive selection of polycarbonate building materials, Danpal is always finding ways to customize nature to suit our customers!
Natural Light And A Polycarbonate Skylight Dome
It’s time to call a truce with nature. We all love natural light, don’t we? But spending 365 days a year outdoors just isn’t the answer. A polycarbonate skydome can absorb the outside sunlight without exposing you to the adverse natural elements like extreme temperatures, wind, and UV rays. Polycarbonate is famous for its strength even under extreme conditions, so much so that it’s commonly used in cars and airplanes, as well as big buildings. Weather is powerful, but a polycarbonate sheet dome can take the beating without surrendering to it.
But What About Wind? Does A Polycarbonate Skylight Dome Have Impact Resistance?
Polycarbonate is the superhero of the building material world. Because polycarbonate is approximately 200 times stronger than glass, a polycarbonate dome is just about unbreakable, even in adverse weather conditions. At the same time, polycarbonate is so much lighter than glass, making it much easier to work with and install. No matter where you live and work, you’ve probably noticed that weather can, all too often, unleash brutal natural forces that can cause immense damage. Even if you’re not living in one of the regions where the perils of hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes, and extreme heat are a very real threat, you know that even something as harmless as a baseball can break an ordinary skylight. That’s the beauty of polycarbonate domes—there’s nothing ordinary about their impact resistance.
How Long Do Dome Skylights Last?
When cleaning your polycarbonate dome, use a soft cloth or clean sponge to wash with lukewarm water and a mild soap or detergent. Using a moist cellulose sponge or a chamois when drying will prevent water spots.
Polycarbonate dome skylights, just like any other part of a building, need proper care. While a typical dome skylight will last from 8 to 15 years, if you’ve made the wise decision to install a Danpal polycarbonate dome skylight with quality materials, you can expect a longer life span.
If you’re wondering about when it’s time for replacement polycarbonate skylight domes, you can rest assured that by choosing polycarbonate rather than acrylic or other plastics, you’ve made a selection that’s economical, durable, and long-lasting. Danpal quality materials, combined with skilled installation and proper care, will let you look forward to a long life of polycarbonate dome skylight pleasure.
