Translucent facades are light glazing panels used on the exterior of buildings, protecting the structure from weather damage, dampness, and erosion. Its composition of polycarbonate microcells creates a soft, naturally diffused light with a wide range of possible colors, brightnesses, and opacities. By fixing these panels in place with concealed joints, it’s possible to hide unsightly building elements and assist in protecting users from harmful UV rays, while also ensuring maximum thermal conduction. Individuals who use them will notice a reduction in energy bills because they use the sun’s natural light to heat and illuminate buildings, creating very attractive indoor environmental conditions for different uses.  What are some of the other benefits? Air and water tightness Translucent facades offer an optimal balance of solar and thermal dynamics, helping to protect buildings from leaks, dampness, and weather damage. This characteristic is attributable to the panels' the snap-lock connection systems, which ensure that air and water cannot penetrate into the building. They are also durable, allowing them to withstand impact from hail and other unwanted elements. Having been designed to expand and contract as temperatures rise and fall, the panels are unlikely to crack or break, offering great flexibility.Some specific translucent facade systems include an air gap that provides natural ventilation. With this inclusion, the insulation stays dry, the building stays moisture-free, and polycarbonate sheets defend the structure against weather. View more View full description
