Most commercial building owners already know that gruesome bird strikes are common.  Not only do they cause deadly injuries to birds and expensive repairs to windows as well. But what many building owners may not realize is–there are ways to avoid these fatal run-ins.  The most effective of these are bird deterrent window films. 

Ways to Make Windows Visible to Birds

A way to keep birds from flying into high rise windows is simply by making them visible to birds.  This is because birds cannot distinguish the reflection of the sky from the actual.  This means they end up flying into them. Below are a couple of ways to make your windows visible to keep birds safe.

Bird Strike Decals to Prevent Bird Strikes

Stickers and decals are one method to stop bird collisions into the windows of San Antonio skyscrapers.  Decals are effective because they disrupt the reflection of open sky to some extent.  But, they must be spaced close enough together so that birds do not try to fly through them–and with decals, this is usually not the case.   Bigger birds will avoid your skyrise windows but probably not smaller ones. 

Screens and Netting to Avoid Bird Strikes

Mosquito screens applied to the exterior of windows break up the reflection of the open but for big buildings with a lot of windows, this method is impossible.  Netting is also a choice and works a little different–it keeps birds from actually hitting the windows of highrises by bouncing them off the netting. However, this solution is incredibly expensive, affects the aesthetics of your building, and still could injure birds. 

Bird Strike Window Film to Prevent Bird Collisions

The best bird strike prevention for your San Antonio highrise windows is bird deterrent window film. It is simply the most effective method because  

  • It is nearly invisible to the human eye
  • It stops the most bird/window collisions
  • It is the most Cost-effective and installed in one day

If keeping birds from flying into your San Antonio home’s windows without altering the appearance of your windows is the solution you are looking for–bird deterrent window film is the solution you are looking for.
