Not every company can play a transformative role in the way we design and build our living and working spaces, but translucent roofs by Danpal prove that it’s possible for innovative engineers and design experts to look at something as humble as a roof and redefine its very nature. Literally. Once upon a construction time, a roof was something that covered a building, sheltering its occupants from the weather outside. But, along with shutting out the darkness, the roof of old shut out the light as well. As our contemporary work lives take up more and more of our daytime hours, we feel the loss of that daylight. Translucent roofs are the solution: we’re still shielded from the cold and the harsh elements outside, but we can, thanks to the miracle of Danpal’s pioneering advances in daylighting architecture, allow natural light to come inside. Some of the benefits of the Controlite® Intelligent Daylighting System include skylighting surfaces in larger areas, optimal comfort throughout changing conditions during the day, energy efficiency and savings, and strong resistance to inclement weather outside.
Harnessing The Power Of Daylight With Controlite®, The Intelligent Daylighting System
Controlling daylight makes it possible for the desired intensity of indoor light to be a matter of personal choice. With the integrated, rotating louvres of the translucent glazing panel, the transmission of daylight can be adjusted no matter what time of day it is, no matter what season it is. Bringing daylight into a building while keeping rain, snow, and cold temperatures outside is one way to have the best of both worlds.
Don’t Worry About Weather: Translucent Roofs Are Strong!
Danpal products are known for their durability and a translucent roof is no exception. You can enjoy the appearance of the world beyond the translucent roof, but you don’t have to fear that the elements are going to come inside. Only daylight is welcome to come in, and only when you decide to let it in.
Translucent Roofs, Energy Efficiency, And Daylight
Daylight isn’t just something we enjoy because we can see and feel better in the light. Daylight is the natural product of sunlight, and we know that sunlight is a powerful force of nature. With translucent roofs, we can make use of the heat and light that come with the daytime so that we actually consume less energy. The panels of the Controlite® system integrate into the energy-efficient building design, reducing the need for artificial light as well as internal heating and air conditioning in the respective seasons when they’re in use. Another plus of the translucent roofs’ Controlite® system: its panels will integrate into the energy efficiency of the building’s design so that green building rating system points are earned.
Isn’t it time for nature to carry some of the energy load? Why not let nature help make your utility bills more affordable? Bring in the daylight; you’ll save money and support the environment at the same time.
