Keep Building Occupants Healthy and Comfortable with Professionally Installed Window Film

The feel of a work space can be dependent on a variety of factors - temperature, access to daylight, even the direction the building faces. As a building owner or manager, making sure your occupants are healthy and comfortable in their work environment is important, so with this in mind we’re driving awareness to how professional window film can help.

While sunlight streaming in an office window sure is beautiful, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer by age 70, and each year over 5.4 million cases of nonmelanoma skin cancer are treated in the U.S., according to In addition, repeated exposure to excessive UV light can cause eye issues including blurry vision and cataracts. But, prevention is possible and a useful strategy for a workplace is a professional installation of window film.Once installed, window film blocks 99% of UV rays, helping reduce the risk of skin cancer and eye damage.

Among other benefits, professionally installed window film helps avoid interior temperature swings and keeps your building occupants more comfortable. Window film may help retain heat in the colder months, and in warmer months it allows in less than 25 percent of solar energy versus 90 percent without film, keeping the temperature further regulated. With more even temperatures, there are bound to be less office thermostat battles! The view to the outside doesn’t have to be compromised either. There is little or no visible change to the look of the windows, since window film is available in a variety of shades, from virtually clear, to medium, or dark. In addition, since the product is always in place, there is no operator involvement needed to enjoy its benefits. 

Furthermore, professionally installed window film can ameliorate glare while still providing adequate light. By reducing excessive sunlight, window film can offer a more productive workspace so the people working in your office can stay focused on the tasks at hand.

Instead of a full window replacement, which is costly and produces more landfill waste, professionally installed window film allows occupants to enjoy the space with high UV protection, while building operators benefit from avoiding costly window replacements while reaping significant energy savings. Now that’s a win-win.

A professional installation of window film is a wise move that will bring back a measurable return on the investment. Federal, state or local incentive programs may be also available for which installed window film may qualify. To view available tax incentives, visit here
