Imagine if we could bring the outdoors inside. The fresh air, the beautiful sunlight, that wonderful feeling of being invigorated through closer ties to nature. The outdoors is indeed a marvellous environment . . . but what about when it snows and we long to hurry inside where it’s warm? Or when it’s raining and we’re soaking wet and can’t wait to get out of the storm? The out-of-doors has definite attributes, but for most of us, it’s the inside world where we spend the majority of our time, and that means that we have to find a way to bring the outside in. Outdoor louvres are one way to do that: they can be opened all the way or half-way, or closed entirely, depending upon your personal preference and how much of the out-of-doors you want to welcome into your living and working space. The choice is up to you, and isn’t it wonderful to know that, even though we have no control over whether outdoor louvre let us control how much of it affects our comfort zone.
Why Outdoor Louvres Are the Answer for Personal Climate Control
With outdoor louvres, you make the decision on how much light and air you want to bring inside. On a rainy, windy day, you might not want the louvres to be fully open; you might even want them to be closed. If it’s a beautiful day and you don’t want that “stuck-inside” feeling, you can open the outdoor louvre halfway or all the way so that, even though you’re inside, you’re not missing out on the fresh air and sunlight outside. Outdoor louvres are a satisfying and responsible way to minimize your consumption of energy, which make them the environmental choice as well.
Outdoor Louvres and Indoor Daylight
One of the many advantages of outdoor louvre is the way that it lets you determine how much natural light is going to be brought into your spaces. Do you want lots of sunlight, or do you want shade? Outdoor louvres let you decide. When the louvres are open, you not only receive the amount of daylight that you want, but improved ventilation as well. Think of the seasons and how you enjoy them; now think of how much more you’ll enjoy then when you add outdoor louvres.
Danpal® Louvre Translucent Shading System and Outdoor Louvres
Danpal’s pioneering in the field of daylighting architecture is a triumph that matches cutting-edge innovation with natural light. That achievement is exemplified by the properties of outdoor louvres, which are designed to give daylight as much of a presence as you think is appropriate depending upon the weather and your preference. You can’t control the sky or what comes out of it, but with outdoor louvre, you’re the one controlling your own personal climate. You can count on Danpal quality and Danpal’s Microcell technology to bring you the most innovative products designed to ensure your comfort.
The flow of air in a building is a major factor in the comfort level of the occupants within. You don’t want too much or you’ll feel the cold, but if there’s too little moving air inside, the atmosphere is stuffy. Of course, your heating system in the winter and your air conditioning in the summer are supposed to keep things comfortable inside. That’s what they’re designed to do. However, when it’s too hot, we hurry back into the air conditioning. When it’s too cold, we can’t wait to get out of the cold and into the warmth inside. We expect to be comfortable when we’re inside a room. We enjoy being outside when the weather is pleasant, but sometimes, heat and air conditioning need help. That’s where a louvre wall system comes into play.
Ventilation is more than just cranking up the heat or the AC. Louvres provide ventilation that prevents inside air from feeling stale. A louvre wall system allows the air to flow without resistance while keeping out the rain and moisture, so that people can retain that internal comfort while keeping out the external elements that don’t belong inside. When you think about it, it’s the perfect way to add just the right amount of comfort to your living or working space.
Other Functions of Louvre Systems
You might think of a louvre system as your own personal climate control centre. Louvres are angled slats that help with ventilating a room or the inside of a structure, but they serve other purposes as well. A louvre wall system also contributes to a much broader means of weather maintenance. If it’s a beautiful day outside, the sun is shining and the temperature is comfortable, your louvres can be opened wide to let in the warmth and the light. But what if it’s too hot and too bright and the sunshine is too intense? The louvres can be closed a bit so that you have more shade. If it’s a rainy day or the temperature is cold outside, you simply close the louvres.
A louvre wall system delivers the sunlight, the shade, and the fresh air. And it also adds to the external appearance of the structure, so that the result isn’t just climate control, but esthetic appeal as well. A building doesn’t need to be just a physical structure; it can also present an attractive image in the community. Louvres provide this tool so that the consumer can, from inside, determine how much of the outside is going to enter.
The Danpal Louvre Wall System Delivers Sunshine and Shade
Danpalon® Louvre, a translucent shading system, offers maximum control over light and heat, as well as extended UV protection and high-impact resistance. It also offers control, with a louvre wall system that gives consumers the power over how much light and shade, as the weather indicates, is brought inside. The louvre wall system also lends itself to esthetics, with finishes, effects and colors that transform the exterior design of a building. Sunlight and shade for comfort, with beauty thrown in for good measure: that’s the Danpal louvre wall system.
What are louvre facades? You see them in office buildings and shopping center, in indoor and outdoor settings, enhancing the physical appearance of structures but also providing a valuable function as well. Danpal façade system are designed for the purpose of reducing the transfer of heat and the intensity of light, as well as improving a structure’s physical appearance. Installation can place the louvres against the building, or else they can be protruded in order to provide shading.
The traditional role of a typical façade system is not to play a structural role in a building’s design, but to prevent moisture from causing damage to the interior of that structure. Hail, wind, snow and rain are a building’s natural foes, one which it faces day after day. Danpal uses Microcell technology to defend a building from those harsh elements. Louvre facades are just as strong as a typical Danpal façade system, but they offer something extra. They let you, the consumer, decide how much of the external weather you want to invite inside. Nobody is going to welcome a downpour of rain or a snowstorm inside, but what about those bright and sunny days, when the air is fresh and the day is bright? That’s when Danpal’s daylighting architecture can let you and the sunlight meet on your terms while you’re inside. For those days when the sun is so bright that the glare is unbearable and the heat too intense, you still have control over how much of a hot summer day is going to come in. The louvres can be closed entirely to bring shade to your interior.
Louvre Facades Play With Sunlight and Shade
Wonder what Danpal is up to these days? What if we told you that Danpal, a leader in the building industry for over fifty years and a trailblazer in daylighting architecture, has been learning to play with sunlight and shade?
Danpalon® Louvre, a translucent shading system, empowers the customers to determine the balance of light and shade that is perfect for them, creating an internal atmosphere that meets their preferences. Louvre facades can be installed on various building types, and with the dazzling selection of colors and finishes for which Danpal is known, the result creates internal comfort and external beauty.
Along with that customized control over sunlight and shade comes the mastery over ventilation. Adding louvre facades to a structure allows for the welcome presence of fresh air coming in from outside and on a pleasant day, there’s nothing like the enticement of warm breezes to invigorate interior working and living space. If the day is cool and not conducive to open louvres, then they can be closed. This feature expands a building’s energy efficiency by allowing nature to carry some of the burden of adding comfort to the indoors, but always on your terms and according to your personal preferences.
Danpal designs the products. The architect designs the building. You, the customer, design your comfort zone.
Exterior vertical louvres not only provide a means of protecting your windows, but they also allow you to enhance the outside appearance of a building. The vertical louvres, which are set within a frame and placed on the sides of the windows, have other advantages as well. Because they are located on the exterior of the structure, they offer privacy for the occupants inside. They still deliver sunlight and fresh air, bringing the outdoors into your rooms so you reap the benefits of nature while controlling how much of it you want to enjoy. Weather is unpredictable, but exterior vertical louvres let you build the perfect forecast inside.
Here’s Your Exterior Vertical Louvre Weather Report
What’s the weather like outside? If there’s a pleasant breeze outside and you want to enjoy it even though you’re inside, you can open the louvres for optimum ventilation. But if it’s a hot, humid day, the kind of day when you want to escape the temperature, you can close the shutters and savor the shade. The marvellous thing about exterior vertical louvres is that you can enjoy just as much of weather as you prefer, for climate control on your terms!
Maintaining Your Exterior Vertical Louvres
After facing the rain, wind, and snow, your louvres might need to be cleaned, but you won’t have to worry about their ability to withstand the harsh elements because Danpal products can handle whatever the forecast brings your way. Keep in mind that because your exterior vertical louvres are located outside the structure, you may need a ladder in order to reach them. Depending upon the material that the louvres are made of, they can be hosed down and then cleaned. After the louvres are washed, they can be dried with a mop or cloth.
Danpal® Louvre Translucent Shading System and Exterior Vertical Louvres
Louvres are a very satisfying way to include the parts of nature that you like the most into your interior living and working space. There’s the comfort level to be considered, but in these times when so many people are working from home, exterior vertical louvres, when opened to let the sunlight in, also provide you with natural Vitamin D. That means that you can improve your own health just by opening the louvres.
But if it’s a hot day, and you don’t want the heat to get inside, that’s easy to take care of too. The Louvre Translucent Shading System by Danpal lets you experiment with sunlight and shade so that you select the blend of nature that’s perfect for you. You spend a lot of time inside, and now you can share your home with nature. But it’s your home, and you make the rules!
The weather continues to remain powerful outside. Rain, snow and wind are what we expect throughout the different seasons. Don’t worry, though; Danpal’s Microcell technology ensures high-impact resistance to protect the louvres. The system’s snap-on interlocking dry-glazed connectors makes sure of that.
Louvres add a lot to a building, not only in performance but also in appearance. Wall louvres are designed to improve ventilation so that air can flow into a building while the weather remains outside. Wall louvres let the air in, and while it’s wonderful to have fresh air circulating in a room, no one wants to deal with the unwelcome parts of weather, like rain. Wall louvres can also prevent the outside dust and debris from getting inside. Wall louvres manage to do all this while adding to the esthetic appeal of a building’s exterior.
The Benefits of Ventilation in a Building
Most of us spend the majority of our day and night inside, which means that we aren’t getting a lot of fresh air. After a day spent in air that’s stale, we feel a little stale ourselves. No one says that outside air is always pure; pollution is a factor we all deal with. But inside air, without good ventilation to bring in fresh air and move the stale air, has its own negative qualities; there can be bacteria, mold, and pollutants. That’s why wall louvres can help keep your working space and living space well ventilated to provide good air flow.

The Strength of Architectural Louvres
Any architectural feature located on the exterior of a building is going to serve as a front line force against the weather. Inside a building, you count on the comfort provided by the walls that protect you from the elements. But it’s a very different matter for the exterior of a building, where the meteorological weapons of the four seasons engage in battle outside. Danpal research and development have created Microcell technology, the most innovative system available for architectural shading applications. Microcell technology takes a structure’s oldest enemy—weather—and empowers that structure with high-impact resistance to stand up to the harsh effects of wind, rain, and snow.
Light, Shade, and Architectural Louvres
The spacing between the louvre ribs is tight in order to turn daylight into an architectural feature. Danpal is famous for its pioneering of daylighting architecture and that feature is shown to advantage in architectural louvres that offer a superior quality of daylight that nurtures an esthetically attractive atmosphere. Outside, there may be too much glare from sunlight or too much darkness because of overcast skies, but inside, thanks to architectural louvres, the outside comes in according to your specifications. The system not only allows you to select your preferred light transmission level, but it also offers a choice of matte or glossy finishes for the surface. Color is very much a part of the selection process with this system, and there’s no need to sacrifice beauty for function because the Danpal tradition supplies both.
