GlasPro Bird Safe Glass Line

GlasPro consists of a range of highly-effective Bird Safe solutions, satisfying the varying construction specifications for bird-friendly architectural glass. Bird Safe family of products includes ultraviolet reflective, acid-etched, and frit pattern glass. All of GlasPro’s Bird Safe solutions meet the industry-standard *2 x 4 rule for preventing bird glass collisions and strict requirements for safety, energy efficiency, and sustainability.

“The wide variety of native birds that thrive in urban areas underscores the importance of these artificial habitats to the survival of many bird populations. Creating green-space in urban environments, landscaping with native plants in backyards and parks, adopting architecture and lighting systems that reduce collisions, and keeping pets indoors will provide the greatest benefit to breeding birds and migrants seeking safe places to rest and find food during their spectacular journeys.”

Bird Safe UV glass is proven to effectively deter birds, improve energy efficiency, meet safety standards, and maintain the human visual experience with its high transparency.

There is more than one way to create a bird-friendly building

The human visual experience specified for the building is a big factor in selecting a bird-friendly glass solution. The transparency of Bird Safe glass decreases with the increase in line or dot patterns visible to people – an important item to note.

* The 2×4 rule describes the distance between elements making up a pattern applied to windows for the purpose of preventing bird strikes. To be effective, the pattern must uniformly cover the entire window and consist of elements of any shape (lines, dots, other geometric figures, etc.) separated by no more than 5 cm (2 inches) if oriented in horizontal rows, or by 10 cm (4 inches) if oriented in vertical columns. These patterns eliminate bird-window collisions when applied to the outer surface (Surface #1) of reflective panes, or when applied to any surface of multi-pane see-through windows. Greater spacing between pattern elements increases the risk of a strike and casualties.
