Are you suffering with too much glare in your office?

Posted on - February 3, 2020

At this time of the year the sunlight – though not hot – can be quite strong – and as it is lower in the sky, it can be shining directly into your workplace – rendering computer screens hard to see and making life uncomfortable for your colleagues and employees.

Glare from the sun – it’s no fun.

Sure — you can pull the blinds (if you have them), but its not a great fix, and ideally you’d like the sunlight to shine in — just not at the expense of the working environment.

It’s not good for your customers and clients either! Imagine how you’d feel pitching up for a meeting and being instantly blinded.

The receptionist can’t help you because not only is her computer screen nothing but a haze of reflected sunshine — but she is also having problems seeing anything, having had the the sun’s rays directly in her face all day.

Modern

It’s all very well having these swanky offices with all their ‘walls of glass’ and all that — but it’s often not very practical as a working environment.

Modern offices and developments tend to be mostly glass. Which is great for both internal and external style, and of course allows loads of natural daylight into the working environment.

BUT — there is a downside…

Glare

The sun belting through windows and glazed areas can cause massive problems.

Quite apart from the obvious discomfort – glare in the eyes, on PC, mobile and TV screens, etc – the associated heat can raise tempers as well as temperatures, and is proven to adversely affect productivity, and increase the risk of injuries.

Traditional

Older buildings – often now used as commercial offices too – were never designed to cope with the rigours of modern living and historically had no means of managing the problems connected with strong sun light through windows.

Good news!

Our range of solar control window films are the best solution by far. And the can have additional benefits. Combination films can provide safety, security or privacy benefits too.

It’s hi-tech composition allows it to reduce glare and heat by up to 90%, whilst cutting out harmful UV rays too.
