Window film to reduce glare can have all-year-round relevance

The reasons why it makes sense to purchase window film to reduce glare during the summer are obvious; at a time of year when the sun is at its brightest, glare can be a recurrent problem that prevents a building’s occupants from concentrating on their vital work.

If you’re ever been trying to concentrate on a computer screen, for instance, only for glare to make it difficult to see what’s on the display, you’ll know just how much of a godsend dedicated glare reduction window film can be for bolstering worker comfort and productivity during the summer.

It’s easy to overlook, though, just how much of an issue glare can also be at other times of year. Indeed, glare may turn out to be an even greater problem for a building’s occupants in the colder and darker months, due to the sun being lower in the sky.

So, glare reduction window film might bring even greater value than you think

While the occupants of taller buildings may be especially vulnerable to being dazzled by direct sunlight on a regular basis, here at Opalux, we’re delighted to stock window film to reduce glare in a wide range of settings, and in all manner of circumstances.
