Does your office space have high energy costs associated with temperature control? Do your employees complain about the glare coming through the window as they are trying to work?
Studies show privacy in the office space is important to employee wellbeing. According to a Steelcase study of more than 10,500 workers in Europe, North America, and Asia, a “lack of privacy is causing people to feel overexposed in today’s workplaces and is threatening people’s engagement and their cognitive, emotional and even physical wellbeing.”
Studies also show natural light in the office space is equally important to employee wellbeing. A 2018 study by Alan Hedge, a professor in the Department of Design and Environmental Analysis at Cornell, found that workers in office environments with natural light reported an 84 percent decrease in symptoms of eye strain, headaches and blurred vision. Studies show that exposure to natural light can improve employee’s sleep and that well-rested employees report higher productivity.
Window treatments offer both privacy and natural light in the office space. Help block views in interior office windows, minimize the view of others and decrease distractions around the office while still having the option to see through the window and let in the natural light on your own terms.
Add Style, Lower Heat in the Office Space with Window Shutters
At JAG Window Tinting & Treatments, we carry window shutters that are made of high-quality materials and are designed to last.
A window shutter, sometimes called a plantation shutter, is a solid and sturdy interior window covering with a frame, consisting of vertical stiles and thick horizontal rails. The shutters are fitted to the window frame and can be opened like doors. Choose from hundreds of colors. Our experienced staff can design them to fit in any space.
According to BeautyHarmonyLife, window shutters are immensely popular. They are energy efficient – absorbing and blocking direct heat from the sun. The shutters also are aesthetically pleasing. They can completely change the look and feel of a space, making your office look classier and sophisticated. They are highly durable and low maintenance, as they can last for many years and only require a good dusting or a wipe down every now and then.
Roller Shades Improve Office Space Comfort & Reduce Energy Loss
Consisting simply of fabric and a few pieces of hardware, a roller shade works great on many windows to improve comfort and reduce energy loss.
With today’s advanced technology, roller shades can open automatically. They can open in the morning and close in the hot afternoons without employees having to stop to manually adjust them.
Insulated cellular shades reduce energy loss through windows, lower heating and cooling bills and improve comfort in the office. According to Energy Saver, when you are using a heating system, tightly installed cellular shades can reduce heat loss through windows by 40% or more, which saves you about 20% on heating energy. When trying to cool your office down in the hotter months, the shades can reduce solar heat through windows by up to 80%, reducing the total solar gain 15% or less.
Mecho ElectroShades are perfect for public spaces and meet the aesthetic and functional needs of office environments. They can be time-controlled, sun activated, remote controlled or automated to keep your days in the office more focused on work and less on the amount of sunlight in the building.
These window treatments assist in providing both a comfortable and effective work environment, offering maximum sunlight control on computer screens and work areas and improving productivity by minimizing eye exhaustion from harsh lighting each day.
