Blinded by the light…

Posted on - September 18, 2017

Is the sun shining through your windows a problem?

At this time of the year the last throws of the summer sun 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.

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.

Window film from Durable is the simple and cost effective solution.

The appropriate film, professionally installed by us, can filter out up to 80% of glare and heat from sunlight. And – an added bonus — it also filters out up to 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays to!

The eyes have it

Trying to concentrate on a PC screen, laptop, TV or other device whilst the sun is streaming in through your windows is not good on your eyes, leads to headaches, results in lower productivity and can increase the risk of accidents in the workplace.

Light at the end of the tunnel

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.


Installing window film not only fixes your summer problems — but helps with your winter blues. Not only can it stop heat permeating in to your office or workplace — but it can reduce the heat leaking out through windows too. So its just as useful in the winter. Result!

“Blinded by the light’ was the 1973 Bruce Springsteen song — famously covered by Manfred Manns Earth Band in 1976. We like to think that Bruce was lamenting the fact that window film had not been employed to battle a decidedly bad case of Glare in his apartment building. The resulting issues contributed to some of his other hits. For instance “I’m on fire” is obviously a reference to melting summer heat in ’76, along with ‘Fire’ and ‘Streets of fire’. Resorting to pulling all the blinds down to virtually black out the place he wrote “Dancing in the Dark” a few years later.
