Many staff and students working in school and college buildings can experience discomfort caused by the presence of windows and glazed screens in areas where they are trying to work. Problems such as glare from the sun, overheating due to solar gain as well as insufficient visual privacy for confidential activities are issues being experienced not only in rooms in older educational buildings but also in many of the newer school and college buildings which have been constructed or refurbished in very recent times. Many of these problems affecting the usability and functional comfort of the environment can be significantly improved and sometimes even solved completely with simple shading products such as window blinds.
Chorlton Blinds can help you achieve the positive benefits that effective solar, daylight and privacy control can have on improving the usability of school environments. Our consultants are experts in the equipment, systems and controls for room darkening and blackout. We would be happy to work with you on your project whether at design or retrofit stage. It may also prove useful to walk around your existing educational buildings with you to discuss any issues you may already be experiencing due to poor solar control and shading.
