Healthy paint choices for commercial fit-outs

There are different reasons for an office fit out – upsizing, downsizing, maximising office space, moving, or just a simple makeover to give your premises a “fresher, cleaner, newer” feel.

However, downtime during a renovation can be costly to businesses and eat into budgets. 

Healthy paint choice for office interiors

 

Businesses could benefit from worker productivity by selecting low odor, low fume, low VOC or VOC free paints on their next refurbishment project.

How are low VOC and VOC free paints different from traditional paints?

 

VOCs are the chemical vapors paint releases at room temperature. Using low VOC paints enables workers to occupy the newly painted room or premises sooner due to lower odors. Traditional paint continue to release VOC fumes as they cure, therefore by choosing more sustainable products, such as natural paints or low-VOC paints it reduces the downtime workers experience whilst their office needs time to air.

 

What benefits can businesses gain from using Low VOC or VOC free paint on their interior offices?

 

Evidence from a recent study by Bond University’s Institute of Sustainable Development and Architecture, reveals a 90% decrease in employee ill-health, such as asthma.

A sustainable option offers long-term operational savings and evidence shows working in a sustainable workplace can improve employee well-being and productivity.
