As we head into spring and the weather starts to get warmer, it’s the perfect time to think about optimising your commercial building. Whilst most welcome the sunshine, it can cause problems for those working in commercial environments. However, here at Westgate we have a range of products that can help overcome the problems that are associated with the sun and the warmer weather in a simple and cost-effective way.
Heat reduction film
Various studies have shown that as temperatures rise in commercial, school and office environments, productivity begins to decline. Of course, air conditioning units and other cooling systems can be used to regulate the temperature in these kinds of spaces. However, these are costly and can be bad for the environment. Our heat reduction films are designed to create a manageable and controlled room environment, which also reduce the load on cooling systems. Additionally, the films can you help comply with European Workplace, Health, Safety and Welfare legislation for thermal comfort. This is the perfect solution to ensure that the sun does not make life uncomfortable and productivity does not decline.
Glare reduction film
Glare from the sun can be a real issue for environments where computer screens are commonly used. For example in offices and schools. Our glare reduction film reduces the amount of glare, making for a much more comfortable working environment by improving visibility and reducing eye strain. The film can also help you comply with Display Screen Regulations for visual comfort against glare. Shops, museums and other such environments can also use the film to improve visibility. The standard range offers glare reduction whilst maintaining the aesthetics of the building, as standard films carry a much lighter tint.
Installing blinds can be a really simple yet highly effective solution to reducing glare. Our solar blinds are particularly useful in offices and schools and are robust enough in nature to withstand long term, heavy usage. The robust design of our commercial blinds incorporate guide wires, crank handle and energy saving fabrics.
