The importance of natural light in the workplace

Plenty of research has been done into the benefits of natural daylight in the workplace and as the many benefits are proven in science, the argument over who gets the office window seat will heat up even further.

The research has shown time and again that exposure to natural light improves the well-being of workers in office environments.

Chilling the Excess Fat Away

One place that I’ve always been self consciouses about is my stomach. There is always a bit of fat on my stomach, no matter how much exercise I do.

Green: the colour of spring

Spring is known for being the season that a new pastel shade is cited each year as the ‘top trending colour’, but this year sees an excellent alternative in the form of green, whether it’s vibrant emerald, lush forest green or opulent olive.

It’s also a timely colour as climate change discussions are on people’s minds, and it’s a colour that has long been associated with tranquility, rebirth and earthliness. And if you live in the city, it’s the perfect way to add some verdant lushness to your surroundings.

What are rivet shelves?

Rivet shelving should not be confused with “steel shelving”. Although rivet shelves are often steel, the industry reserves the latter term for shelving constructed using clips or nuts and bolts. Rivet shelves, by contrast, are pre-fabricated with rivets that slot into grooves. They can, therefore, be assembled and disassembled very quickly, by hand or with a rubber mallet, but without compromising on rigidity and load capacity.

Types of rivet shelf
