Every building is unique. Where commercial or public service buildings are concerned, employers and service providers have a duty to provide the natural light that is essential for the well being of staff and service user. That sounds logical and simple enough, however there are challenges in providing natural light that need to be overcome.
In many instances, commercial window film is the ideal solution. It is a self-adhesive polyester film that is retro-fitted to glass surfaces and tackles the following issues:
1.Skin protection – by preventing UV ray passing through, commercial window film provides an effective barrier against the harmful effects of the sun’s rays – much like sunscreen.
2.Reducing glare – as many of us work on screens or use screens to read, commercial window film can reduce the level of glare, much like sunglasses.
3.Heat reduction – heat can be magnified by glass (think about a greenhouse!). Window film can help by blocking this solar energy and maintaining a comfortable working environment. This also prevents fading of fabrics, flooring and furniture.
4.Safety and security – glass panels and windows do bring with them a level of risk in terms of personal safety and also security. Commercial window film is available in a range of thicknesses which provides an additional barrier and reduces any kind of risk in these instances.
5.Privacy – where blinds and curtains are not an option, window film is available in a range of designs and colour to provide that all essential privacy whilst still allowing natural light.
6.Energy saving – solar control window film can help to reduce heat and energy bills.
7.Décor – Commercial window film can be fitted in a wide range of colours and shades that are in keeping with the brand or aesthetic feel of the building. Neatly fitting onto existing panels they are also a great space saver.
