Have you ever had a bird hit the window of your Austin home? If you have, you are not alone. Each year at least 2 billion birds are killed worldwide from flying into windows. Countless more are injured. While the occasional bird running into your Austin home’s window may not seem like a big deal. The fact of the matter is–bird strikes are increasing and doing permanent harm to entire species. Furthermore, it is a horrible way for a bird to die and can do considerable damage to the windows of your home. There is something you can do about though–and we, at Custom Tint Solutions, can help.
Help Prevent Bird Strikes On Homes In Austin
You may have heard that applying a large bird of prey decal will help you prevent birds from trying to fly through your windows. Although that is incorrect (the birds will just fly around it)–it is not far off. Making your windows visible to birds is the key to success in keeping them safe. Which is why we offer “fretted” window films to stop deadly window/bird run-ins.
What is a Fretted Window Film?
Fretted films are bird strike prevention film. They are a powerful way to lower instances of avian collisions with windows. These films are embedded with a tiny recurring pattern. Both horizontal and vertical dots or lines spaced no more than 2-4inches apart depending on their orientation. Although small and not very visible to humans–this simple technology make the windows visible to birds. These window films are easy to install and we can work with you to find a custom pattern that is effective and fits with your Austin home’s decor. Plus, you get many of the benefits of traditional window film too: sun control, energy savings and increased security to name a few.
