Let The Sunshine In: Why You Need Commercial Window Film For Your Office

Kylie Howell

If you want your new office designed with plenty of windows, make sure you include window film in the final plans. Window film is a great way to help reduce the amount of maintenance that your windows will need. However, the benefits go beyond ease of maintenance. Here are four benefits you'll receive when you invest in commercial window film for your new office:

Enjoy the Natural Light

If you've opted to increase the number of windows in your office so that you can benefit from the natural light, you also need to consider the exposure your employees will receive -- the sun exposure. With increased natural light comes increased exposure to the suns harmful rays. However, that doesn't mean you need to block out the natural light -- you just need to block out the harmful rays. One way to reduce the sun exposure while still benefiting from the natural light is to invest in window film. Window film blocks out near-infrared light, as well as ultraviolet radiation which is responsible for skin cancer. 

Increase Visibility

When you own a business, you want to make it as visible as possible. One way to do that is through the use of signs. However, window film is another excellent way to increase the visibility of your commercial building, especially when you choose the right type of film. When window film first hit the market, it was available in varying shades of gray and brown. However, now window film is available in a wide assortment of colors and designs. The right window film will draw much-needed attention to your commercial building. 

Reduce Energy Bills

When you think of ways to reduce energy bills for your commercial building, things like energy-saving light bulbs and energy-efficient HVAC systems probably come to mind. However, window film should also be put on that list. Installing film on your windows not only blocks out the light that can cause health problems for your employees, it also blocks out the heat that can increase your utility bills during the summer. 

Increase Safety

Finally, if you want to take steps to increase the safety and security of your commercial office space, you need to invest in window film. When glass is struck, it will shatter into many small pieces. Unfortunately, once airborne, those pieces of glass can cause considerable harm to anyone who's nearby. Window film adds a thick protective layer to the glass, which helps prevent shattering. If struck, the glass will still break; however, the window film will keep all the pieces in one place.

Glass is an important component of our everyday lives. We all drink from beverage glasses, look out of glass windows, and gaze into glass mirrors. However, few people understand how glass is made and know about all of the types of glass produced using today's modern technology. We created this blog to answer all of your questions about glass and provide advice on how to choose the right glass shower doors, the right windows for your home, and much more. We are not glass professionals, so our blog is different from glass industry blogs. We don't assume you know all of the complicated glass jargon that glass professionals know, so we aim to explain the information we post in simple terms that are easy for everyone to understand.
