Why Your Office Building Could Do with Some Window Tinting

Posted on: 4 March 2022

If you work in an office block then one of the first things you probably notice when you walk in is the abundance of windows. Natural lighting is, of course, a good thing and helps keep your body feeling normal when you work those long hours, but that does not mean these large open windows do not have their downsides. Window tinting is often thought of as something that only luxury vehicles have or perhaps those who are trying to hide something, but that is far from the case. Here are a few reasons why your office building should consider tinting its main windows.

Reduce Heat

Offices can become a bit like a sauna during the summer season that is quickly approaching because of how hot the light makes the air inside your building. With larger windows, more sunlight gets in and warms the temperature, leading to either a need for quite strong air conditioning or a lot more fans being turned on. The best way to control this temperature without giving in to uneven patches of heat across the office is through some clever window tinting that minimizes the amount of UV rays coming in.

Reduce Possibility For Pain

It is not often talked about but sunburn can be a real issue for those who work right up against the windows of their office, particularly if they are floor-to-ceiling windows as so many across white-collar America are. In addition to that, you can also get a lot of annoying jolts of pain from windows that don't have tint protection through glare and reflections when the sun is at its peak. These might not seem like that big a deal, but over time they just become more and more difficult for your employees and coworkers, and makes it an inhospitable environment to work in.

Street Level 

If your office level is right next to the street then it can feel a little awkward as people constantly pass you by. You may not be worried about the nature of your work or any privacy concerns like that, but just always being seen by those passing by can be distracting and a little awkward. Window tinting comes in many different shades, so you can pick one that is a little stronger and prevents those onlookers from really seeing anything other than a blur behind the window, while still allowing you to see out.
