Vertical blinds effectively control light source in an open design office
Nov 11 2010
Companies are increasingly moving toward open design in their workplace layouts by removing barriers between workspaces and limiting the number of private offices for managers.
Vertical blinds are easily adjusted to control daylight in an office.
Pennsylvania-based Knoll Workplace Research reports that more than 60 precent of the companies throughout North American have installed workstations to replace traditional office furniture.
"This trend is part of a larger shift away from the primacy of the enclosed office, often located on the perimeter wall, to a model in which the private offices plays a subordinated role, moving to the building core," according to Knoll.
As an energy-saving measure, individual workspaces are often aligned with windows that bring in natural light, rather than relying solely on artificial lighting that drives up electric bills. Larger windows are being built to allow light to stream deeper into the workplace.
One way to manage the light source, which changes in intensity throughout the work day, is to install vertical blinds that are particularly effective as a window treatment for large windows and glass doors. They can be adjusted to let in full or partial light, and are available in a variety of colors and materials to complement office décor.
