This office building was designed with lots of windows to let as much natural light in as possible. While creating a nice work environment with a great view, all that glass also allowed a whole lot of heat to enter the building. This creates “hot spots”, where some rooms are comfortable, some are cold, and some are still too hot with the air conditioning running. This can affect employee comfort and ultimately, productivity. They called us to see what we could do with a window film designed for heat rejection.
We ended up going with a 3M Nightvision 15 film. This window film will allow them to see everything in the daytime, and even though it is a dark film, will still allow for pretty good visibility at night. The best part about the Nightvision series is that it blocks a lot of heat, which was the main focus. This work space can work in comfort after having 3M window film installed on all 118 panes.
