The Architectural Curtain Wall Keeps Moisture Out

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could construct an architectural curtain wall that would keep bad weather at bay? Weather is a topic that we all love to talk about. We listen to the evening forecast on the news; we check our phones to see if it’s going to rain on a day when we have plans; we decide what to wear based on the predicted temperature for the day. It takes a lot of planning for people to handle the weather, but it’s a little bit more straightforward for buildings. With the addition of an architectural curtain wall to a structure, the building is fortified against weather and the moisture that can weaken it.

How Does An Architectural Curtain Wall Keep Weather From Damaging A Building?

Danpal’s research and development experts developed Microcell technology which is designed for strength and durability. With its double-click locking seam, the protection that prevents external elements such as rain, snow, wind, and hail from invading a building is fortified. The architectural curtain wall is part of the line of defense that keeps moisture out and insulation dry.

How An Architectural Curtain Wall Supports Energy Efficiency

Have you noticed a surprising increase in your utility bills? Maybe it’s costing more to keep your building air-conditioned in the summer months, or possibly, over the winter, you noticed that you were paying more for heat. The internal temperature of your living and working space ought to remain consistent throughout the year. If you’ve had to adjust the temperature in order to increase the heating or cooling, you might be paying more because energy is escaping. In order to do its job, insulation needs to be dry. When it’s wet, it’s less effective. An architectural curtain wall can add a strong layer of protection so that your insulation stays dry.

Combat Moisture By Installing An Architectural Curtain Wall In Your Building

Human beings are indoor creatures. As much as we enjoy being outdoors and taking part in activities that reflect the seasons, most of us live and work indoors. When it’s cold outside, we can’t wait to come inside where it’s warm. A hot summer day has us hurrying in to enjoy the air conditioning. We have come to expect that the hours spent inside will be comfortable. We also assume that when we are inside, we are not endangering our health. However, if moisture has found its way into a building, it’s only a matter of time before mold develops. Someone who already has asthma or another respiratory issue will find experience more health problems. People may develop allergies; mold is not a substance that’s beneficial to the human respiratory system.

Consider the benefits of installing an architectural curtain wall and you’ll see that you need to focus on the health and wellbeing of the people who occupy the building in which they live and work. Danpal creates products and building materials that are flexible and easy to install, strong enough to withstand the rigors of the elements, and supportive of energy efficiency.
