Why do you need to invest in window tinting your workplace? Simple it improves productivity, health and safety ensuring your optimum functionality of your organization. Window tinting provides health benefits in the long term. Here are five ways how tinting your windows will help improve employee health and safety.

Reduced Glare on Computer Screens:

Window films reduce visible light transmission which is similar to putting on a pair of sunglasses. The darker the lenses the more light they will block. Squinting your eyes due to glare will exert strain on your retinal nerves and might lead to myopia or hipermetropia. It is always advisable to go for a dark film which is capable of filtering 95% of visible light.

Window Tinting Reduces Hot Spots and Increases Worker Comfort:

Hot spots can be very uncomfortable for employees who are stationed near windows. Glass absorbs heat from sunlight and traps them within, this leads to intensified heat which accumulates at a particular area. Window films prevent hot spots by either absorbing heat or reflecting them. This reduces heat gain and allow employees to stay comfortable in any location within the office walls.

Improved Privacy and Security:

Window tints with darker shades will prevent eyes prying into your work space. It also reduce distractions and improve productivity in the work space. This will block the views and reduce the risk of thieves getting tempted to grab valuable equipment.

Protect Employees From Radiation Exposure

Window tinting your office provides safety to employees by guarding them from dangerous UVA and UVB rays. Exposure to UVA rays can lead to premature skin aging, wrinkling and suppression of the immune system. Prolonged exposure to UVA and UVB rays can burn the upper layer of the skin and in extreme cases cause skin cancer. Installing window tints will prevent exposure of the skin to harmful rays and improve employee health.

Increased Energy Efficiency and Aesthetics:

Window tinting your office can help you save money and conserve energy as they prevent both heat loss and heat gain. If your office has non tinted windows it would exert strain on the air conditioning unit as it needs to produce enough energy to neutralize the outside heat. If you tint your windows it would prevent heat from entering inside and exert no strain on the air conditioner to cool the workplace. This not only saves energy and money but also reduces the emission of CFC and promotes an Eco-friendly environment.
