How to Reduce Fading in the Office

Protect Your Property From the Sun

If your office is like most others in sunny locations, windows are a big part of the design. Windows are prized for letting in natural light and giving employees’ eyes a break with great views. Being cooped up inside without natural light is bad for morale and health, and who doesn’t want an office with big windows?

Problems With Large Glass Surfaces

Those glass surfaces do have some downsides. While we’re all aware of sun glare and built-up heat, a less-obvious problem is sun fading dealt to vulnerable materials. While all materials can suffer from sun fading, certain materials like plastics, soft fabrics, and wood floors are at a higher risk. Sun-fading is only the first sign of permanent damage and as time goes on, those items must be replaced for aesthetic reasons, safety reasons, or even both. When you think about what most office items are made of, your office now seems a lot more expensive.

Potential Solutions 

What can be done to stop sun-fading from damaging computers, monitors, printers, decor, and other items? A few common solutions around the home include window blinds, curtains, rugs, and designing around the sun spots. Around the office, however, space is at a premium and it’s not so easy to just move around the sun. Window blinds can certainly help but they aren’t the only answer!

Combined with blinds, solar control window film will dramatically cut the risk of sun-damage to your office’s property and reduce how often you replace your stuff.
