The professionals at Halcyon Shades understand the needs of large commercial operations. With a big demand for services and products, it can be difficult to keep track of the little things. However, sometimes the little things can have a BIG impact on day-to-day business operations and efficiency.
Window treatments, for example, have the potential to offer many benefits. However, many people do not realize the huge effect their treatments can have in a building and for a business. By providing both insulating and cooling effects, in addition to blocking out excessive light, our energy-efficient shades are the perfect commercial solution for your business. By transitioning from commercial window tinting to shades you can expect many benefits for your business, including:
- Productivity. With window shades you can adjust the levels of light coming into the building to maximize productivity
- Efficiency. Our window covering solutions are much more efficient than commercial window tinting. They have the potential to earn your building up to nine LEED points!
- Versatility. Unlike tinting, you can easily move shades from window to window, making renovations and redecorating much easier.
- Security. Shades keep people outside from seeing in, which reduces the chance of a break in. However, you can still see everything going on outside of the building.
Shades vs. Window Tinting: Which is Best for Your Office?
When looking to make an existing commercial building more environmentally friendly or in the process of designing a green building, windows are a good starting point with the potential to make a real difference without spending a lot of time or money.
The addition of energy-efficient window coverings has the ability to transform any commercial operation into a greener space.
Many various options are available, which can make it difficult to discern which solution is best. So, what solution is better for your business: commercial window tinting or shades?
How You Benefit From Halcyon Shades
At Halcyon Shades, we’d like to set the record straight about the shade/commercial window tinting debate: shades are better across the board for a number of reasons. One of the most important ways that any business can benefit from Halcyon Shades is by controlling the amount of light that enters the building. Lower light levels result in reduced glare on computer screens, which helps to increase employee productivity and job satisfaction. Window shades allow you to adjust the levels of light coming into the building to maximize productivity, making them a better product for enhancing the efficiency of your business than window tinting.
The magic is in our shade design, which eliminates the need for any commercial window tinting treatment. In fact, our window covering solutions are so effective they have the potential to earn your building up to nine LEED points.
Our method is simple: our shades act as natural, radiant barrier envelopes, helping to keep the cold air out during winter months, and trapping inside heat where it’s most needed. Our window tinting solutions also work to keep your commercial building cool and comfortable during warmer months. While commercial window tinting can contribute towards a building becoming a greener structure, this solution is a more permanent fixture in your building, requiring a larger commitment from business owners.
Although commercial window tinting and shades are both great additions to your commercial operation, the latter is far more versatile. Shades have the ability to be easily moved from window to window, making them ideal for when it’s time to redesign or renovate your office. Additionally, unlike commercial window tinting, our shades can be manually or motor-operated. With the click of a button, the shades can lift and close according to the movement of the sun. If the office is shutting down for a prolonged period of time, the timed settings features can be used to open and close the shades, which is something that cannot be done with commercial window tinting.
If your commercial operation is in need of additional security, shades can help. Although some window tinting solutions have the ability to prevent unwanted onlookers from peering inside your business, they also create a skewed representation of what is going on outside your building. These adverse window tinting effects prevent a real-life look at the outside surroundings, and they also decrease the performance of your building’s security. With our window coverings, this problem is non-existent. Shades allow you to see what is actually happening outdoors, without onlookers being able to peer inside your building. Benefits like these put the shades vs. window tinting debate to rest, making the your decision simple.
