As the global community continues adapting and becoming more eco-conscious, architectural trends do the same. Bird-safe architectural glazing helps promote a more sustainable future without taking away from functionality or aesthetic appeal.
How Does Bird-Safe Glazing Work?
Bird-safe glazing, sometimes called bird-friendly glass, helps deter birds from flying into its surface by utilizing one or more effective solutions. Many people believe that birds collide into glass structures due to their transparency. While this causes some collisions, birds more commonly perceive the reflection on the glass surface as a continuation of their surroundings.
Bird-safe glazing helps birds to recognize that the glass is a solid structure. Maintaining the ideal balance of transparency and reflectivity, bird-safe glazing implements one or more solutions, including but not limited to:
- Fritted glass
- Patterned glass films
- UV-reflective coatings
