Reducing Solar Glare Increases Productivity

Nearly every business is now dependent on computer terminals for their operations, with staff working many hours with VDUs.

Projectors and screens are frequently used for meetings, presentations, lectures and classes.

This means controlling solar glare is now much more important in meeting rooms, auditoriums and classrooms.

Solar glare is an issue for many working and studying environments, from older buildings pre-dating the computer age to modern buildings with larger windows to make greater use of natural light.

Solar glare can cause distracting reflections, eye strain and increased fatigue when using computer terminals. In extreme cases, glare and reflections make working on VDUs impossible and whiteboards and screens unusable.

Controlling solar glare can dramatically increase the productivity of your staff, allowing them to be more focussed for longer, reducing absenteeism and improving staff retention.

As an employer providing your staff with a comfortable and productive working environment is not just an option. Employers are legally obliged to comply with the Health and Safety Regulations 1992 (which implements the European Directive 90/270/EEC).

Our office window blinds comply with the Health and Safety Regulations 1992 and European Directive 90/270/EEC, making them ideal for computer environments, meeting rooms and classrooms.
