Glare is one of those everyday problems that so many of us may forget even exists if we are fortunate enough to work in an environment in which measures have been taken to reduce or eliminate it. Unfortunately, glare – which can be defined as either too much light or excessive contrast between high and low levels of luminance in a single field of view – can present itself on certain premises to such an extent that solutions may need to be sought.
Your organisation may look to the installation of anti-glare window films as such a solution. But what makes glare such a great problem for many of us in the first place, and what might make our films the ideal products for resolving it?
Glare: a recurrent issue in many offices
When the light in your workplace is overly bright or direct – whether sunlight or artificial light is the source – you are likely to experience glare, which doesn’t just affect your ability to see and focus on a computer screen, as it could also be harmful to your health.
However good your eyes may be at adapting to different levels of light, direct sunlight almost always provides too much light for any given application or setting. We are all familiar with that instinctive response of turning away or shielding our eyes when we experience excessive light at low solar angles, such is the pain that it causes. Nor are we able to look directly at the sun without risking damage to the retina.
There are certain things that workers can do to make themselves more comfortable and shield their eyes from long-term damage, in settings that are affected by glare. They may wear sunglasses and hats, for example, but these are not exactly convenient or practical solutions indoors, especially when the amount of glare experienced is likely to vary over the course of the day. Nor are all buildings or offices designed in a way that protects their occupants from the adverse effects of glare.
