Architectural glass products are a necessity in the construction of beautiful buildings. Glass is beautiful, almost mystical in its function and form. It is see-through, and yet it is firm and hard, like a wall. Through glass, you can see daylight, watch the rain, view the world. Glass is being used to improve lives of people all around the globe, and as such, it is a part of the solution to some of our societal problems. Glass isn’t just a pretty feature in your commercial building or in your home: it is necessary for improving quality of life in modern structures.
People are natural creatures. They’re driven by cycles that start with sunlight. Exposure to daylight can have a variety of health impacts. Glass enhances health because it brings people closer to daylight. Some of the ways glass can help improve health while indoors:
Exposure to daylight promotes good focus, concentration and clear thinking. If your building is a school or a college, your students could benefit in surprising ways from installation of quality of skylights. In fact, exposure to sunlight can even help people perform on tests!
Are you a homeowner who is currently engaging in home school activities with your children? Your children may perform better in their studies (and your life will get easier!) if they’re exposed to sunlight throughout the day. You’d be amazed how much better your school day will go if your students get a part of their daily dose of sunshine through large windows and skylights.
Businesses that experience problems with absenteeism will want to hear this: access to natural daylight is correlated to reduced absenteeism. Installing additional windows and skylights in your building can actually help ensure that more people come to work rather than call in sick throughout the year. The more people who show up to the office, the better your workplace will function.
If your commercial building is a hospital, access to sunlight can decrease the average hospital stay. In other words, architectural glass can help save your hospital money and improve patient outcomes!
