The Benefits of Decorative Window Film

Glass has become a major design trend for renovating office space, and with good reason. Replacing interior walls with glass for offices, conference rooms, and lobbies can redirect natural light from windows up to 40 feet deeper into a building, reducing dependency on artificial lighting and cutting energy costs. But does glass create a lack of privacy that outweighs your energy savings? Decorative window film addresses this concern and boasts other benefits to augment the return on your energy savings investment.

Privacy Benefits of Decorative Window Film

Privacy Benefits of Decorative Window FilmInstalling decorative window film to glass provides discretion when confidentiality of information or privacy for employees is an issue. You can install frosted, tinted, or colored window film at various opacity levels to get the privacy you need without sacrificing natural light.

 

The Flexibility Factor

The Flexibility FactorWindow film enhances the sophistication factor of glass as well. You can select decorative film to customize your space with unique designs, prints, or patterns, including styles that resemble cut or texturized glass. Window film is easy to clean and durable over time, but because the film can be applied and removed easily and inexpensively without damaging glass, you have the flexibility to change the look of your space at little cost.

Let the Sun Shine In

Let the Sun Shine InBoosting natural light in the workplace has been linked to increased employee productivity and morale. Direct sunlight can cause glare on computer screens though, forcing employees to rely on blinds and overhead lighting to tackle the problem. Decorative window film reduces the transmission of light through glass to diminish glares, making employees more comfortable while reaping the benefits of sunlight.

Window film provides the additional benefit of filtering up to 99% of harmful UV rays, which protects employees from skin damage that can cause skin cancer, and office furnishings and flooring from fading.

If you plan to renovate your office space with glass partitions and walls, you get to enjoy more natural light while reducing your energy consumption. Enhancing glass with decorative window film can further customize your space and provide the added benefits of privacy and protection for employees.

    I really like how you mentioned that glass walls have become a lot more popular than regular walls. I really like how it not only provides privacy, but its flexible of how you want to decorate it. I saw my neighbor put film on his windows at home and I was wondering why. Thanks for sharing this article because I think I might do it too, in order to save on energy bills.

    Thanks for the idea. My wife and I are trying to make our home more energy efficient and have heard that window film could really help. I really like the privacy benefits, as you mentioned. Do you know how much it blocks out the UV rays to save energy?

    As an Australian user of just over 40 years and the installer of both auto and flat glass films with literally hundreds of thousands of windows tinted out there, may I say how pleased I have been with the Madico experience.

    Thank you for helping me understand what the benefits are of decorative window film. I really like how you explained that “Installing decorative window film to glass provides discretion when confidentiality of information or privacy for employees is an issue. You can install frosted, tinted, or colored window film at various opacity levels to get the privacy you need without sacrificing natural light.” I have never had window film before but I can imagine how helpful it can be when it comes to giving people privacy.

    I am a big fan of having more natural light in my office withought getting the glare on my screen. Currently my office just has windows one the east and west of the building with roller shades. This way we get natural light at least half of the day. I like the idea of just adding a film to filter the light though. It would be more convenient.

  9. Rockford Johnson says:

    I learned a lot about decorative window film by reading this article. I didn’t realize that decorative window film can help to prevent people from spying on you or looking in. I can imagine the peace of mind one can have when it comes to ensuring that know one can look in or spy on you.

    Hi, recently we had our office fitted with Privacy Film Tinting and found it to be great. It lets all the light in we would normally get, but the privacy of the film is fantastic. We run a local law firm and needed privacy without having the mirror effect some films have. Our logo is etched into the film too. Couldn’t be happier!

    Remodelling your bathroom is one of the home improvement items that makes almost every homeowner’s to-do list, and is one of the relatively less expensive renovation projects to complete. Bathrooms are daily-use rooms, so updating the design, functionality, and look and feel can make a pleasant impact on your daily life!
