Towering glass skyscrapers and beautiful buildings with glass walls are pleasing to look at, but to the avian population, they’re potentially deadly. Because glass reflects the sky, trees, and outside environment, birds frequently collide with windows. This common phenomenon is the leading cause of bird deaths due to humans. According to a study by the Smithsonian Institute and the US Fish and Wildlife Service, between 365 million to one billion birds die each year in America due to colliding with buildings. Buildings are a direct threat to the avian population. Anti-collision bird film can prevent birds from flying into glass to reduce mortality rates and protect the avian species.
Protect Buildings with Bird Safety Film
You can prevent birds from flying into glass windows and doors and save them from injury or death by applying deterrent markers on exterior glass surfaces. Anti-collision bird film contains unique spacing patterns that alert birds of the window’s presence, resulting in fewer strikes. Reducing the number of bird collisions helps lower the chance of injury or death to help preserve the avian population.
Easy to Clean & Maintain
Bird safety window film uses vinyl that is durable, long-lasting, and easy to clean and maintain. While the film lasts for years, ESP Window Tinting partners with our film manufacturers to guarantee the material is free from physical damage as well as visual and adhesive defects that could compromise the functionality.
Best of all, you don’t have to do any maintenance, and cleaning is similar to cleaning glass. You can use any common cleaning solution such as Windex or detergent and water with a sponge, soft cloth, or squeegee. Light pressure is recommended, and you’ll also want to avoid power washing.
Cast vinyl lasts 12+ years and won’t shrink, delaminate, or discolor. Because there’s no maintenance required, you don’t have to spend any time or costs upkeeping it.
