Many offices feature large, expansive windows that prevent a closed-in feeling. However, glass expanses can have unwanted consequences such as glare and lack of privacy. Window tinting helps with these situations, plus others. Thus, if you're installing commercial glass windows, why not consider toned glass? Consider the following benefits you'll enjoy.
Lower Energy Bills
Keeping the office comfortable in winter and summer can chew up power and cause ongoing high energy costs. You can reduce these expenses by tinting the windows. Tinted films can block up to 97 per cent of infrared rays that generate heat and warm up the office. With tinting, the inside will remain cooler in summer, and you'll reduce air conditioning expenses. Additionally, toned glass also hinders heat loss during winter.
Improve Comfort and Productivity
Window tinting helps prevent hot and cold spots in front of the windows, maintaining a more consistent temperature throughout the office. Workers will be more productive if they're not sweltering during the summer or feeling chilled in winter. Additionally, the tint will help to prevent glare that causes employees to squint and get tired, making it difficult to work efficiently at a computer.
Window tinting also improves the safety of offices, as the films hold the glass pane together should it break. Many windows may feature various types of safety glass already. But a window film will add an extra layer of security. Thus, workers won't be in danger of injury caused by flying glass pieces if the window shatters.
Window tinting helps to create more privacy in the office, especially when situated at ground level. It's not ideal that people walking along the street can watch every action of employees. Such a privacy lack is not safe as a potential intruder could be watching. Tinting will help block the view so that only the toning will be evident from the street.
Enhance the Facade
Tinted windows in bronze, blue or green enhance a building's facade, giving it a sleek look. It increases visual consistency as each window won't show varied indoor lighting conditions and colour schemes. Instead, the uniform tone of the glass will minimise the different view of each window. The toning will also disguise the clutter within the offices, creating a more professional exterior facade.
Thus, window tinting offers a range of benefits for businesses. It reduces energy costs while creating a more comfortable environment without hot and cold spots around the windows. Plus, reduced glare and more consistent temperatures can help increase productivity. You'll protect the premises from the unwanted gaze of criminals and increase safety in another way by making the glass more secure should it break. The offices will also benefit from a more professional and smooth exterior.
