Bird Strike Prevention Window Film for Colorado Springs Buildings

Bird Strike Prevention Window Film for Colorado Springs Buildings

Did you know that hundreds of millions of birds die each year from glass collision? As humans, we rarely stop to think about the ways our buildings and city structures affect the environment. High rise buildings may appear harmless to birds, because we often see birds buildings nests in overhangs or hanging out on awnings, but the truth is that our city skyscrapers and multi-level buildings are deadly obstructions that stand in the way of birds’ natural flight paths.

In Colorado Springs, many people are starting to realize the devastation of bird strikes. While there is an increasing need for additional infrastructure due to the city’s expansion, there is still an eco friendly way we can go about creating new buildings. Bird strike prevention window film can make Colorado Springs a safer city for birds and the environment.

What Is Bird Strike Prevention Window Film?

Bird strike prevention window film is a special type of glass laminate that’s designed to make buildings more visible to birds. Birds don’t normally see glass. When they’re flying, they only see the reflection of the sky in glass structures. As a result, they fly into windows without even realize that the flight path in front of them is obstructed by a large home or building.

Bird strike prevention window film eliminates glass reflectivity. Once installed, the film appears clear and looks just like ordinary glass. However, to a flying bird, the film provides the visual effect they need to be able to see a building. Additionally, birds often strike glass in an attempt to hide in a reflection they see as being a tree or bush. Bird strike prevention window film eradicates these visual mirages, allowing birds to see glass for what it truly is. It is the preferred glass adaptation by many zoos and other eco conscious organizations.
