These days a lot of new office buildings are built with tinted windows. That’s because building designers and business owners understand the many benefits of tinted office windows—like blocking UV rays and glare, and reducing heat. But if you have an older style office building, your untinted windows may be costing you a lot of money and even affecting productivity.
There are some very compelling reasons to get your office windows tinted. But the bottom line is, it makes good business sense.
Why Tint Office Windows
Tinting your office windows in Brisbane just makes sense. Bright, hot sunlight isn’t great for productivity or for keeping your office assets in tip-top condition. And with the amount of sunny days in Brisbane, tinting your office windows with office window film is an investment you can reap the rewards from all year round.
6 Ways to Save Money and Protect Your Business with Commercial Building Window Tinting
1. Protect your staff and office equipment from UV rays
Working in an office that has windows and a lot of natural light can be a fabulous thing. But if your staff are exposed to direct sunlight, they can suffer sunburn and skin damage. As a business owner you have a responsibility to do all you can to protect your staff. You also want to avoid any costly lawsuits or claims. So the best thing to do is get your office windows tinted.
Office furniture and equipment
UV rays can quickly damage office furniture and equipment, causing them to fade and age prematurely. That brand new couch in the foyer wont look new for very long if it’s exposed to direct sunlight. Other expensive office equipment such as computers, printers, photocopiers, desks and chairs can all fade or age from UV rays.
Your stock and promotional material
If your business sells products that are stored in your office, the last thing you want is UV rays from the sun fading them. Your goods will look second hand before they’re even delivered.
Promotional materials stored or on display in your office—flyers, posters, banners, etc.—can all start to look pretty shabby if they are left to fade in the sun. But you can protect your investments by tinting your office windows.
2. Save on cooling costs in summer and heating in winter
Offices can get stuffy and unbearable awfully quickly in summer. That’s why practically every office relies on air-conditioning to provide a comfortable work environment during the warmer months. However, by tinting your office windows you can reduce the amount of heat that enters your office in the first place. This means you’ll need less air conditioning—and that adds up to a big saving on your electricity bill.
Some offices can get quite cold in winter—yes, even in Queensland! If you currently use heaters in your office during winter and don’t have your windows tinted, you are missing out on another saving. During winter, tinted windows can insulate your office and prevent warm air from escaping. You’ll use less heating and save more money.
3. Improve productivity by cutting glare and improving natural light
One of the big benefits of office glass tinting is the amount of glare that is cut out. Glare can wreak havoc with your employees’ ability to see their computer screens. They may end up squinting or even getting headaches if the light is too bright. By installing tint on the windows, your employees will be able to see better and be able to do their jobs more effectively.
4. Hide your trade secrets and intellectual property
Window tinting reduces visibility into your office. This can be very handy if you have important trade secrets you’d like to keep a secret from prying eyes, or valuable intellectual property (IP) that others could use to compete against you.
5. Added office security
Criminals are less likely to try to break in to your office if they can’t see your valuables. You can also buy window tints that will prevent your windows from shattering. Window tinting can add an extra layer of security to your office.
6. Improve your image
Window tinting can give your business a more professional image. And in business, image is often everything—leading to more clients.
