Glare, it is fair to say, is a real menace for many office workers and other occupants of commercial buildings. It can be an issue right through the year, but it is often as the spring and summer loom that end users and specifiers consider more formal arrangements for tackling it in their buildings – especially as it is during these seasons that excessive heat tends to become more of a worry as well.

Glare Reduction Films
The colder, darker and wetter months may not be a time of year when you would ordinarily expect many heat and glare problems at your home. However, the fact remains that these issues can occur during any season. In fact, the low-lying sun might make glare an inconvenience that necessitates some kind of urgent solution – including in your conservatory, or wherever rooflights are installed.
Amid reports indicating that temperatures could soar in the United Kingdom over the coming weeks and months, it’s understandable that if you are contemplating solutions for reducing solar heat gain and excessive glare at your organisation’s premises, you may have considered window film.
Sure enough, here at Opalux, we supply an assortment of window films under our own brand, and which are highly acclaimed as both solar heat rejection and glare reduction films.
Optimal lighting conditions are essential if the workers in your business’s buildings are to be as productive as you need them to be. All too often, however, this is not the case in workplaces up and down Britain, to such an extent that remedies need to be considered.
Glare – which arises when excessively bright light intrudes into a person’s field of view – is one such problem. Glare can occur directly, such as when sunshine enters through bare windows, but also indirectly, as in the case of light bouncing off highly reflective surfaces.
The decision to purchase solar reflective window film for your existing building or ongoing construction project may be made for any number of reasons. The reflective appearance of such films can be one key factor, not least in giving you exceptional daytime privacy. But the uniform look of these films can also be appealing simply from an aesthetic point of view, and then, there is their effectiveness in rejecting solar heat gain.
