Do you have a problem with glare in your office?

Posted on - January 30, 2023

This time of the year the sun – though not hot – is lower in the sky and can shine directly into your workplace

It can render computer screens hard to see and make life uncomfortable for your colleagues, employees and your customers!


Modern offices are often ‘walls of glass’ these days — but it’s often not very practical as a working environment.

New office developments use a lot of glass. Which is great for both internal and external style, and of course allows lots of natural daylight into the working environment.

BUT — there is a downside…

<< Glare >>

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

Blinds may help –  but it’s not a great fix, and ideally you’d like the sunlight to shine in — just not at the expense of the working environment.

And – 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.




Older commercial buildings [including  those converted to offices which were never intended to act as such] historically had no means of managing the problems connected with strong sunlight through windows.
