5 Reasons Why Every Office Needs Roller Blinds
Straining your eyes looking at a computer screen in direct sunlight is not only distracting, it’s uncomfortable. And when we spend roughly 90,000 hours at work in our lifetime, an uncomfortable work environment seriously impacts employee wellbeing and productivity.
Luckily, there’s a simple solution – office roller blinds.
Here, we’ll look at why roller blinds are a must-have feature in any office building, and some of the best commercial indoor blinds on the market.
5 Notable Benefits Of Office Roller Blinds
1. Enhance Employee Productivity & Wellbeing
Roller blinds are an effective way to control direct sunlight and excessive glare in your office. They’re easy to adjust and create a well-lit, yet glare-free environment to enhance employee wellbeing and productivity. In fact, research shows that the right lighting increases employee productivity by up to 40%.
Even better, roller blinds allow your employees to tailor the amount of light and heat entering their space during the day. No more fighting over the office AC temperature.
2. Improve Energy Efficiency
Roller blinds are great for insulating your office and maintaining an optimal temperature. Roll them down to block the sun on hot summer days, or wind them up to soak in the warm winter sun.
Their flexibility reduces the need for excessive heating, cooling or artificial lighting, helping cut utility bills and contributing to long-term cost savings.
3. Maintain Privacy & Security
Roller blinds aren’t just helpful for regulating office temperature and glare, they’re great for quickly creating a private space without compromising on office aesthetics. Afterall, the last thing you want is passersby peering into your office during confidential meetings or presentations.
Installing roller blinds also adds an extra layer of security to your office. When shut, roller blinds make it near impossible for outsiders to peer into your space and see any valuables you may have inside, reducing the likelihood of break-ins.
4. Protect Furniture & Flooring
Sunlight may brighten the office, but prolonged exposure to harmful UV rays will fade and damage office furniture, flooring and artworks. Roller blinds act as a barrier, shielding these items from UV rays and extending their lifespan.
By investing in roller blinds, you not only protect your office’s interior, but also save on replacing these items in the future.
5. Effortless Light Control
Office roller blinds have the option to operate manually via sleek stainless steel chains or with the convenience of motorisation. Raising or lowering via a remote control, wall switch or smart phone app, motorised roller blinds allow for total light control in seconds.
Leading suppliers like Helioscreen also offer the option to automate your office roller blinds. Program them to open during the morning and close as the afternoon sun reflects off surrounding buildings, keeping your employees comfortable and happy at all times.
The 2 Best Indoor Roller Blinds For Offices
1. Blackout Blinds
No matter whether you’re giving a presentation or watching a training video, too much light will ruin the effectiveness of your audio-visual display. Blocking nearly 100% of light from entering the room, Helioscreen’s blackout roller blinds are ideal for offices, boardrooms and other rooms where light block and privacy are important.
Blackout roller blinds feature specially designed headboxes, compressible brush seals and aluminium side channels, transforming a space from light-filled to near complete darkness in seconds.

Enjoy the luxury of two fabric choices in a single, slimline bracket with Helioscreen’s double roller blinds. Double roller blinds combine a light blocking blackout blind and a light filtering sunscreen or translucent blind within the one system, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
