More Info

Glass-like appearance
Danpal® Compact is a 4mm thick solid panel that provides a ‘glass-like’ appearance, together with strength, insulating qualities, flexibility, curving ability, low weight and UV protection.

Standing seam connection – no caulking or adhesives
Seamless and Smooth – Leave the caulking and adhesives in the work ute because they won’t be needed. The Danpal® Compact System of panels interlock seamlessly together and are 100% waterproof. This clever design feature of the panels reduces excess material costs and increases longevity of the panels.

Freedom to design spectacular glazed areas – in any size or angle
Aluminium or polycarbonate connectors offer architects a high degree of freedom in terms of exterior building design. Up to 12.0m long panels are supplied and are available as straight panels, cold bent, or thermoformed to form tight curves.

Available in all colour ranges
Danpal® Compact is available in all colour ranges – easily adapting to all creative transparency ideas.
Danpal® Compact brings transparency without limits, brilliant light transmission with flexibility of easy installation and curvability.

Lightweight and durable
Danpal Compact panels are stronger and more impact resistant than glass. They look like glass but are a fraction of the weight and cost. While glass will heat up a room quickly, it is unable to retain heat and emit it evenly. With a Danpal® compact system, you can enjoy the summer inside without the sweltering heat produced by glass.

The Danpalon® standing-seam connection system allows architects complete freedom to design spectacular glazed areas of unlimited size and shape. The entire assembly uses no caulking or adhesives, eliminating the difficulties of sealant and adhesive bond failure common to traditional systems.

What makes Danpal® Compact unique is the standing seam connection method at the heart of the system.

What’s inside the box?

If Danpal panels could come packaged in a box, what would you expect to find?
• The first thing you would notice is the size: Your desired length x 4mm thick (which is about half of your pointer finger) x 592mm wide (which is about 2 average sized feet);
• The next feature you may notice is the crisp clarity of the panels and how seamlessly the panels flow into the snap-on connectors (polycarbonate, aluminium spacer or Freespan bar);
• You may also notice the polycarbonate spacer profile, which enables each unit to expand and contract as necessary in response to changing temperatures. The spacer profile brings the entire unit width up to a neat 600mm. This part of the design is only small but makes a notable difference to structural integrity and life-span of the system.
