Glare Control in the Office Environment

Is glare ruining staff efficiency and moral?

Office, Computer, Solar Glare, Windows

On average UK motorists lose over 30 hours per year sat in traffic on route to work. Few of us can avoid the traffic and for many it can set the tone to a bad day in the office.

One of the most important factors to ensure a positive fruitful day when working in an office environment is the thermal and visual environment. The majority of office based tasks are done in one place usually sat behind a desk, which is why it is vital to provide the correct conditions and facilities in order to achieve maximum efficiency and optimum staff morale. A cool internal temperature, a suitable well equipped canteen area and clean toilets are several key aspects to a good work space.

A factor that we are often called out to resolve is glare .This is an issue in many office working environments, particularly offices with large expanses of glass and open plan layouts, where light floods in through windows, reflecting off computer screens and displays, making it difficult to see, resulting in frustration, stress and discomfort.

At Caribbean Blinds our innovative external blinds which provide a solar barrier outside the glass are fitted with specially micro-woven mesh materials which diffuse incoming light to eliminate light pooling and subsequently prevent glare. The perforations still admit natural light through, so no need to turn the artificial lighting on, and also maintain a view out, another key element in a happy office environment, a sense of openness and connection to the outside.
