When people need to spend their working days in an office, they want to feel comfortable. Those eight-hour (sometimes longer) days can be made hard to bear if a few basic human comforts aren’t provided. In this article, we’ll take a look at the benefits of installing roller blinds in your office, highlighting the benefits they offer for making the office more comfortable for employees.
1. Keep the heat out
In the hot summer months, not all offices can afford grade A air-conditioning systems. We couldn’t count the amount of offices we’ve worked in with air conditioning systems that just didn’t quite do the job; even worse is the fact that different employees like to have the office at different temperatures, making the fight for control of the air remote fiercer than the fight for the TV remote at home! Roller blinds provide a perfect answer to this; they do an incredible job of keeping the heat out, providing insulation to the office and helping to regulate temperature.
By drawing the roller blinds, you’ll be adding a level of security to your office you may not have had previously. Most robbers will scope their potential targets during the day, and if your office happens to be on the ground floor then these criminals will undoubtedly use the day-time hours to peer through windows and see what items of value can be seen within. Roller blinds can be drawn to allow just enough light in (if that’s what you’re looking for) while still making it near-impossible for outsiders to see inside of the office.
3. Protect furniture and carpet from radiation
Everybody knows the importance of protecting their skin from the sun, but did you know that the radiation from the sun can also have damaging effects on office decor, such as furniture and carpet? By installing roller blinds, the damaging effects of constant exposure to sunlight can be mitigated. Roller blinds allow you to let just enough sunlight in to provide light to the office, and can be easily adjusted during the times of the day when more direct sunlight is flooding in, protecting your furniture and carpet and prolonging their lives.
4. They look great
Aside from the more practical benefits, the simple fact of the matter is that roller blinds look great, adding an aesthetic value to your office that traditional blinds can rarely offer. One of the best thing about roller blinds is that they can be designed to complement any type of decor, adding a chic look to your office that will impress clients and have employees feeling like their workplace is a great place to be. You can also add other shade-providing features such as retractable awnings to outdoor areas of your office to add to the look.
5. They’re easy to install
Roller blinds are incredibly easy to install, which is important when you consider that offices need as little distractions as possible in order to minimise downtime. The blinds are simply suspended from the walls over windows, and can be installed by your chosen roller blinds provider quickly and easily.
