Boost learning when the hot weather comes by keeping your classroom cool

Hot weather drains energy and concentration levels, and with the warmer months fast approaching, taking steps to help maintain a comfortable and proactive working environment is essential.

Commercial Films for Heat & Glare

Heat and glare are two big factors that affect concentration and can have a detrimental effect on the amount of learning that is done in the classroom. This summer slump could negatively alter individual grades which in turn would see your school’s average drop. This is never welcomed but can be particularly severe for those school’s who are working towards specific targets that they need to meet.

Glare in schools has become more of an issue now as we’ve moved into a digital age and rely heavily on computer screens for educational purposes.

And whilst there are no specific legal maximum working temperatures for schools, there are some acts that offer pupils (and teachers) legal protection. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires employers to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their staff and others present in the workplace (e.g. pupils), thereby providing a need to seek to protect against excessive working temperatures.

To combat this, and to ensure you’re adhering to any regulations, we have a range of window films that can reduce the level of both heat and glare in either specific classrooms, or your entire school.

Our Range of Commercial Films

For complete flexibility, it’s possible to choose the level of heat and glare reduction by opting for different kinds of films that range from 60% reduction, right up to over 90%. More than one film can be used within the same project depending on differing needs throughout the building. Our lighter tints for both heat and glare reduction enable the windows and building in general to retain its overall aesthetics. Whilst the most effective films do provide a darker tint which does alter the look of the window.

The range of films that we offer are all retro fit which means they can be quickly and easily installed on most types of existing glazing. There’s no need to change the windows and cause costs to spiral. For complex or larger scale jobs we will survey the site and in the event that the project requires complex organisation such as road closures or cherry pickers, our in house contracts team will arrange everything.
