Why Install a Danpal Polycarbonate Skylight?
Asides from looking fantastic, there are a range of practical reasons to choose a Danpal skylight solution.
Polycarbonate skylight construction involves two or more panels of polycarbonate with a gap of air in the middle. This construction is what gives polycarbonate skylights their insulative capabilities, and in the Australian climate, being able to keep the hot air out in summer and the cold air in during winter is very important. This is increasingly important with the ongoing pressure on construction companies to look for more efficient ways of building the structures of the future.
Shut Out UV, Not Sunlight
Perhaps one of the biggest advantages of a Danpal skylight system is its ability to allow for even dispersal of light indoors, whilst also protecting the occupants of a building from harmful indoor rays.
Strength & Durability
Polycarbonate is commonly used in the manufacture of bullet-proof glass due to its sheer strength and ability to stay in one piece when met with an impact. While it’s unlikely anything particularly heavy will be falling out of the sky, even the most destructive of hailstorms would leave your polycarbonate skylight in one piece.
Danpal’s barrel vault design allows for self-supporting stylights without any frame required, or for larger projects, our system can be combined with several types of aluminium spacer options. This the Danpavault system can be customised and tailored to a variety of construction projects.
With an increasing emphasis on sustainable practices in construction, more architects are looking at ways of improving the natural efficiency of their designs. With sustainable materials such as wood, recycled goods, double-glazing & insulation all becoming more common-place in Australian construction, there is always more that can be done to keep this trend going.
Polycarbonate is a type of plastic compound, and while that may not sound particularly environmentally-friendly, the opposite is true. As a thermoplastic, polycarbonate reduces to a liquid state when heated up to very high temperatures, which allows it to be melted down and repurposed at the end of its period of use.
Its significantly lighter weight than more common construction materials means that its overall carbon footprint is reduced in terms of transportation & logistics.
