Glare Reducing Window Film – low winter sun

Monday, March 30, 2015

Glare from the sun can cause discomfort and even distress to building occupants, either directly into their eyes, or preventing computer screens from being clearly visible. Where glare is at distress levels for one or two people, it will probably be at discomfort level for everyone.

Solar window film installed by Sun-X can virtually eliminate glare, whilst still allowing excellent clarity of vision to the exterior. This will also help employers comply with Display Screen Equipment Regulations 1992, and Regulations arising from EU Directive 89/654/EEC.

Anti-glare window film is particularly appropriate when combatting low winter sun, the angle of which can often pose a more acute problem than longer hours of higher summer sun exposure.

If the problem is purely seasonal, then Sun-X solar shade blinds would be the answer, so the windows need not be permanently tinted.

Glare reducing film can either be non-reflective for minimal impact on the external facade, or in varying degrees of reflectivity to help additionally reduce solar heat gain.
