Protect Your Employees And Workplace With Window Films

Posted on

As an employer, you want to take care of your employees so they take care of your business. One too-often overlooked element of workplace safety and comfort is the amount of natural light in a building. If your building already gets a lot of natural light or you want to increase the amount of natural light in the workplace, don't overlook the potential negatives associated with it. UV radiation can cause harm to your employees and your equipment. Instead of just letting the UV radiation into your workplace, you can maximize the benefits you obtain from your large windows and remove any negatives by installing a UV-blocking window film.

Employee Protection

According to The American Cancer Society, UV radiation can cause premature aging of the skin, eye problems, skin cancer, and immune system weakness. If your employees work full-time at your office, then most of their daytime hours will be spent indoors. But if they are sitting next to a window, they won't be protected from UV radiation. Adding UV-blocking window films to any windows where some of your employees spend most of their working hours will protect their health and well-being. They will likely need fewer medical treatments, too, which could help you save money on your health insurance benefit plan.

Workplace Protection

UV radiation doesn't just harm living beings. It can also damage interior finishes. If you own your building, you need to take steps to make sure the interior finishes last as long as possible so you don't have to spend money and disrupt your employees' workflow with frequent renovations. UV radiation can make wood, leather, and paper brittle over time, and it can also fade the colors in carpet, paint, and plastic finishes. If you have recently installed vinyl flooring, make sure to protect the floor from direct sunlight by installing UV-blocking window films. Sunlight can cause some vinyl flooring products to expand and buckle. By working with high-quality commercial window film services, you can protect all of the interior finishes in your office.

Productivity Protection

Natural light can make any office look light, bright, open, and inviting. But it can also lead to workflow interruptions. Glare on computer screens can make employees struggle to get work done, and over time, exposure to direct sunlight can damage screens. LCD screens are particularly susceptible to UV damage, but other screens are at risk, too. Simple UV-blocking window films will protect all of the equipment in the building so your employees can use it for as long as possible and at any time of day.
