Polycarbonate Skylight Systems Let Daylight In While Keeping Weather Out

If you’d like your home or office building to be on an equal footing with weather, you need to consider the merits of polycarbonate skylight systems. For most of humankind’s time on the planet, shelter has been at the mercy of weather. As architecture and construction advanced through the centuries, the goal has been to prevent weather—the heat or the cold, the damp, the darkness—from making us uncomfortable or causing damage to our living and working spaces. But as we all know, weather has a benign and enjoyable side as well. With the development of naturalite skylight systems, Danpal has found a way to integrate the more popular aspects of nature into our interior space, while keeping the extreme components safely outside. Coming to terms with weather is something that’s easier to do from within a polycarbonate architectural system.

The Strength Of Polycarbonate Skylight Systems

As a building material, polycarbonate is much stronger than you might think. In fact, polycarbonate is strong enough to stand up to weather. We all know from personal experience that weather is a powerful force. In these times of climate change, where we’ve witnessed brutal and deadly storms, blizzards that bring travel to a halt, wildfires that scorch hundreds of acres, and floods that devastate human life and property, we sometimes think that weather has the upper hand. But here are a few reassuring facts about polycarbonate architectural systems that shed new light on the matter.

With impact resistance that is 250 times greater than what glass can claim, skylight polycarbonate sheets don’t surrender to weather. Polycarbonate skylight roofing can also resist temperatures as high as 240 degrees Fahrenheit, which is pretty impressive when the sun is beating down and temperatures are soaring. It’s watertight and shatterproof as well, further adding to its many superior qualities. After all, as much as we might enjoy a lovely spring rain, no one wants to see raindrops coming inside because there’s a leak in the roof!

The Flexibility Of Skylight Polycarbonate Panel

If you’re looking for skylight glazing solutions that are easy to install, you’re going to appreciate all the options that are offered in Danpal’s polycarbonate products. Unlike glass, which is heavy and difficult to work with, the components of skylight polycarbonate panels can be processed at room temperature, even when bending at sharp angles. There’s a lot to appreciate in polycarbonate skylight roofing.

Naturalite Skylight Systems Enhance The Qualities Of Daylight

When naturalite skylight systems are installed in a structure, it’s not the durability or the flexibility that captures the attention of the people inside. It’s the light! Natural light is so much more pleasing than artificial light. We see better with natural light, for one thing, so of course, skylight glazing solutions can offer an inside world that integrates sunlight into our homes, offices, shopping centers, and various other structures. Daylighting architecture is one of the ways in which Danpal has made its mark in the building industry. As part of Danpal’s Global Vision, Local Focus philosophy, it’s entirely logical that architecture would partner with light in a way that utilizes the environment’s abundance without doing harm. In fact, as a building material, polycarbonate plays a holistic role in environmental concerns because it’s so easy to recycle. With a Danpalon skylight, daylight builds a bridge between the transparency of glass and the strength that is polycarbonate.

Polycarbonate Skylight Systems Add Visual Appeal

One of the reasons, until the invention of polycarbonate, that glass was so popular in building designs was because of its transparency. This feature greatly expanded the visual options when architects were creating their plans. But glass, as we’ve already noted, suffers from severe deficiencies. Polycarbonate, on the other hand, is strong. It also resembles glass in its transparent nature. Danpal is well known among architects for the superiority of its research and design engineers, who recognize the importance of esthetics as part of the complete structural performance. Transparent polycarbonate skylight roofing allows the brilliant beauty of the daylight to come right into the interior spaces where you live and work, providing a natural sense of wellbeing. Spending a little more time with daylight, compliments of skylight polycarbonate panels, gives those hours an added charm that traditional roofing and artificial light can’t hope to imitate.

As you envision the appearance of your own naturalite skylight system, you’ll be able to appreciate its strength, its ability to provide insulation, its flexibility and ease of installation, its UV protection and light weight. But more than likely, you’re just going to marvel at the beauty of this polycarbonate architectural system that can do so much and look so good doing it!

Naturalite skylight systems

You want to enjoy the great outdoors without actually being outside all the time. The workplace isn’t designed for an outside setup; schools, hospitals, offices are all dependent upon the amenities that come with inside settings. But sometimes, as you walk past the windows, don’t you wish that your daily routine included a bit more of the outside?  With Naturalite Skylight Systems, that wish can come true. Skylights are intended to bring in daylight to internal spaces and Danpal has been a pioneer in daylighting architecture.  

Naturalite Skylight Systems Bring In Natural Light

Studies show that exposure to natural light has a positive effect on people.  As an element of the workplace, natural light can increase productivity among employees and create a more pleasant overall environment. It may seem strange to think that the choice of a roofing system could have such a dramatic effect on the occupants below, but when you think about it, don’t you feel your mood improve when you go out into a bright, sunny day?  But you don’t have to worry that you’re going to be overwhelmed by glare as a result of more natural light coming in, because the system is designed to control the amount of light that comes in.

Naturalite Skylight Systems Are Strong Enough To Stand Up to Weather

People who are unfamiliar with skylights sometimes labor under the misconception that the impact of snow, rain, or hail will break through the skylight. That’s not at all true; Danpal building materials for skylights are incredibly strong and resistant to impact.  You’ll have a first-class view of the weather and what it’s doing outside, but you’ll remain safe and dry and warm inside.  So there’s no need to worry; your Naturalite Skylight System can handle Mother Nature.
