Bird collisions into windows happen more often than you may think. Not only are they bad for the bird and bad for the ecosystem, but can also cause damage to the window itself. In fact buildings, here in Austin and across the world, face the difficult task of mitigating damage when birds fly into windows regularly. There are numerous ways to decrease these unfortunate run-ins, but none so effective as fretted Window Films. These amazing bird strike films are more effective than methods such as needing, decals, or lighting reduction. After these films are installed on the Windows of a high-rise bird strikes are rare.
How Bird Collision Window Films work
When birds fly into windows it is always a case of mistaken identity. The bird sees Windows as open-air rather than a solid object; this is due to the reflection of the open sky off the window. The very best way to help the bird see Windows as a solid object is by installing bird strike window film. These films have a series of small dots embedded in a pattern on the film. The pattern is designed so that the bird will not attempt to fly through the spaces in the pattern. This means the bird avoids the window, doesn’t crash into it, and its life is spared. Likewise, the window of your Austin building stays free of damage– saving you money and repairs each year. Another huge bonus–bird strike window film comes with many of the same benefits as regular window film: UV-blocking, insulation, and glare reduction (to name a few).
