In all architectural projects it is very important to consider how sunlight shines on a building in order to optimise it´s entry enters and control its direction.
The entrance of sunlight into buildings is important not only from a comfort point of view, but also as a factor to be considered in terms of:
• Employee safety, because our vision can be damaged by both dim light (when we struggle to see) and excessive light, which can cause dazzling reflections or even loss of vision.
• Energy savings in the whole building when heat increases and air conditioning losses are allowed, as well as a possible reduction in artificial lighting.
• Decorating the setting, as there are now infinite possibilities in terms of size and arrangement of windows.
In fact, the most modern construction projects usually have large windows that let in a lot of light and provide better visibility to the outside.
However, this great influx of light into the interior conceals a lot of problems related to the arrangement and protection of work areas.
In order to light properly a work enviroment and reduce the glare of excessive sunlight, all types of office buildings need adjustable sun protection: blinds or Shades.
