Drawbacks of Office Curtains
There are some drawbacks to office curtains. One of the main drawbacks is that they block out any light from entering the room. Light is essential for our bodies and brains to maintain a healthy level of productivity. These curtains also interrupt continuous workflow, by adding unnecessary bodily interruption.
The curtains are used to make the office’s interiors cozy and as per a person’s needs. To maintain a neat appearance of the curtain, it is necessary to hang them in such a way that they frame the entire window. The curtains are often colored randomly which can sometimes create an unpleasant atmosphere. They can also be difficult to clean when there is food on them.
Safety Measures for Office Curtains
Curtains are not just for decoration. They can help make your office as a safe and secure haven for your staff. The main goal of curtains is to keep the lighting inside the room, which means no light leakage during the night. But curtains can also act as a temporary security measure if you want to lock someone in or out of an office. This is why it is important that you have good quality curtains that are durable and have a good grip on the ground.
Official guidelines from the British Standards Institution (BSI) state that curtains should be 150mm off the floor to prevent any sudden draught. Some office curtains are fitted with a cord or pulley system to easily open and close them. A cord can create an issue for fire safety, so it is best to avoid them altogether. For curtains that are not fitted with cords, it is important to keep them away from children when they are not in use.
An adjustable pole can be a great way to take the weight off of your curtain rod when you have heavy fabrics on your windows. The pole will allow you to pull up on one side of the fabric and down on the other side. The weight should then be distributed evenly across the top of the curtain pole, rather than just at one end where it would typically hang in an unsupported manner that could cause it to sag or worse still fall. The pole will also help you put up high ceilings and curtains since it comes.
