Glass has become a major design trend for renovating office space, and with good reason. Replacing interior walls with glass for offices, conference rooms, and lobbies can redirect natural light from windows up to 40 feet deeper into a building, reducing dependency on artificial lighting and cutting energy costs. But does glass create a lack of privacy that outweighs your energy savings? Decorative window film addresses this concern and boasts other benefits to augment the return on your energy savings investment.
Installing decorative window film to glass provides discretion when confidentiality of information or privacy for employees is an issue. You can install frosted, tinted, or colored window film at various opacity levels to get the privacy you need without sacrificing natural light.
THE FLEXIBILITY FACTOR
Window film enhances the sophistication factor of glass as well. You can select decorative film to customize your space with unique designs, prints, or patterns, including styles that resemble cut or texturized glass. Window film is easy to clean and durable over time, but because the film can be applied and removed easily and inexpensively without damaging glass, you have the flexibility to change the look of your space at little cost.
LET THE SUN SHINE IN
Boosting natural light in the workplace has been linked to increased employee productivity and morale. Direct sunlight can cause glare on computer screens though, forcing employees to rely on blinds and overhead lighting to tackle the problem. Decorative window film reduces the transmission of light through glass to diminish glares, making employees more comfortable while reaping the benefits of sunlight.
Window film provides the additional benefit of filtering up to 99% of harmful UV rays, which protects employees from skin damage that can cause skin cancer, and office furnishings and flooring from fading. If you plan to renovate your office space with glass partitions and walls, you get to enjoy more natural light while reducing your energy consumption. Enhancing glass with decorative window film can further customize your space and provide the added benefits of privacy and protection for employees.
