A building leads a double life, one on the outside, seen by the public, and the other on the inside. Passersby notice the exterior of a building as the roof and other outside aspects that are in full view. But when it comes to the inside of a building, it’s a little different.
It’s easy for occupants to observe when the carpeting is worn or the floors need to be washed and buffed, but who notices whether or not insulation has been compromised by weather? That hidden life of a building can be a deciding factor determining the structure’s health and wellbeing. That’s why rainscreen cladding, which creates a defensive barrier to keep external weather from penetrating a building’s interior, is an excellent way to give the structure the protection that it needs.
DANPAL’S SUPERIOR RAINSCREEN CLADDING
Weather is a mighty opponent for a building to face. While we notice, on a day-to-day basis, whether we’re dealing with warm weather or cold, we don’t always pay attention to the consequences of the weather forecast.
That’s why Danpal’s Ventilated Rainscreen Cladding SYSTEM (VRS) is regarded as one of the best ways to protect a building’s interior from the external elements that strike with such force. VRS has double-notched panels that prevent rain and snow from penetrating the building; this keeps moisture from getting inside.
In addition, VRS provides natural ventilation thanks to an air gap that keeps insulation free from moisture. Another asset of VRS is the ease of installation; connections can be made right onto the support. No additional structural support is needed. Another time-saving feature is the fact that rainscreen cladding doesn’t require periodic service or even a lot of maintenance.
USER FRIENDLY RAINSCREEN CLADDING
In addition to the ease of installation, rainscreen cladding by Danpal offers a versatility that adds to appeal of the product. Rainscreen cladding delights architects because it can be made out of various different materials, including galvanized steel, aluminum, plastic, wood, brick, and imitation stone. Architects don’t like to be confined when designing a structure and that’s why Danpal products are a favorite for the profession.
Why should a building be limited in options? Danpal’s aim is to provide an architect with as many tools as possible, and nothing is more vital than unleashed creativity.
RAINSCREEN CLADDING IS THE HEALTHIER OPTION
Insulation is often ignored by a building’s occupants, and yet it’s key to maintaining a healthy living and working place for occupants.
If moisture invades a building’s interior and the insulation gets damp as a result, it won’t be long before mold develops. Mold thrives in a damp environment and then it spreads. Before long, the occupants of the building, particularly those who may suffer from respiratory ailments, may find their health is affected by their physical environment.
People who already have asthma or allergies are especially vulnerable to the harmful effects of mold. Rainscreen cladding doesn’t just protect buildings; it also protects the people inside them by preventing mold from developing.
