blinding work space

Does your office have a view? Is it blessed with an abundance of natural light? Those are things to treasure. Full-time workers spend somewhere around 2,000 hours at work per year. Natural light and open vistas make that time more pleasant and productive.

Being awash in light, however, isn’t universally welcome. There are times in the day or year when sunlight grows too strong. If your employees are getting blinded by the light, window film can tame the glare without sacrificing the view.

An Open and Shut Case for Natural Light

Retaining good employees is, or should be, a top goal of every business. Part of keeping your team happy is making sure they have a safe and comfortable space. Studies of the effects of light on office workers suggest that natural light is good for health, morale and productivity. People in the studies who got adequate light from windows, slept better and had a better quality of life than those who didn’t. In light of these findings, installing window blinds or drapes is not a good solution for cutting reducing an excess of light.
