Blindingly obviousPosted on - October 12, 2017
Imagine how you’d feel pitching up for a meeting and being instantly blinded.
AND the receptionist can’t help you because not only is her computer screen nothing but a haze of reflected sunshine — but she too is blind, having had the awesome power of the sun’s rays directly in her face all day, every day.
It’s the blind leading the blind.
Maybe they should get some blinds?
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.
Not if you need to use your eyes at all anyway…
So this reception and staircase in a Commercial Company in Bristol was causing real issues with glare and heat for everyone using the space and had become a health and safety issue.
It was glaringly obvious that the situation needed to change. The stifling heat also generated by the sun’s rays – which even heated up the stair hand rails so much they were too hot to touch — quickly became a burning issue!
Durable were brought in and suggested 3M Prestige 40 external film as the perfect solution – reducing the heat and glare by over 50%, whilst allowing people to see in and out clearly.
