If your medical office building has a lot of windows, it's probably a daily struggle to adjust shades so just the right amount of light shines through without creating glare or heat for your patients. One solution you may want to consider is to have commercial window film applied to the windows. Here are some ways window film benefits your building and keeps your staff and patients more comfortable.
Shades Can Be Left Open All Day
With window film on the glass, you don't have to worry about glare or bright sun in someone's eyes. The film reflects UV rays and shades the sun so you can leave the windows uncovered all hours of the day. This allows patients to have a view of the outdoors, which can be relaxing when they're tense or waiting for a prolonged time in the waiting room. Plus, even though the film provides shade, it still lets plenty of natural light flow into your building. This makes for more pleasant working conditions for your staff. They can enjoy having full view through the windows without glare interfering with computer monitors or tablets.
Hot Pockets Are Eliminated In The Building
One problem that often arises when windows are uncovered all day is uneven heating in a large room. Seats next to south or west windows can be in hot pockets due to solar heating through the window. These areas of your building could be too hot while other parts are too cool. Window film reduces solar heating so hot pockets are eliminated and it's easier to keep everyone comfortable and happy throughout the building.
Window Film Makes The Glass Strong
Another reason to consider having commercial window tinting installed is for the extra security it provides. The film holds the glass together so it can't be knocked out of the frame. This protects your building from storm damage and intruders. If there is a crime problem in your area, then window film gives you peace of mind that criminals can't break into your building easily and steal your medical supplies or medications.
Window film can provide several benefits to your building, staff, and patients. Since it reflects the sun and prevents solar heating, it may even lower the energy bills for your building while keeping the people inside more comfortable. Window film can be applied with little disruption as long as the workers can access the window glass, and the benefits you'll enjoy make the small amount of inconvenience worthwhile.Share
