Hydro Tints' glare reduction films

Client

Challenge

An office building located on a bustling street corner in Manchester faced a significant challenge with glare on computer screens, which impacted employee comfort and productivity. The modern workspace, occupying the second and third floors, was designed with large windows that allowed for natural light and a view of the urban landscape. However, the angle of the sun caused a strong glare on the computer screens, making it difficult for the staff to work effectively during certain times of the day.

Solution

To combat the issue of glare, Silver 20 window film was selected for its exceptional properties:

Glare Reduction: Silver 20 film is known for its excellent ability to reduce glare, making it easier for employees to view their screens without strain.

Heat Control: In addition to reducing glare, the film also reduced solar heat gain, which helped in maintaining a more consistent and comfortable indoor temperature.

Energy Savings: By blocking out a portion of the sun’s energy, the film contributed to a decrease in the building's cooling requirements, thereby saving on energy costs.

Subtle Appearance: The film's subtle silver appearance blended well with the building’s exterior, ensuring that the architectural integrity was not compromised.

Results

The Silver 20 window film installation resulted in several improvements:

Enhanced Visual Comfort: Employees experienced a significant reduction in glare, resulting in a more comfortable working environment.

Improved Temperature Control: The interior of the office remained cooler, even when external temperatures were high.

Maintained Aesthetics: The building's exterior aesthetics were preserved, and the film’s reflective quality added to the structure's modern appearance.

Testimonial

This was a great alternative as opposed to having the blinds down all day. Studies show that staff who allow more natural light through are more productive, resulting in an increase in their output productivity.
