Here in Austin we have diverse and beautiful wildlife even in the middle of our city. One type of wildlife we have a ton of are lovely birds. They make the city a softer place and we love living alongside our feathered friends. But sadly, bird strikes on windows are more common than you may know. This is true of Austin and across the world. Collisions into windows kill billions of birds every year. This explains why we get a lot of highrise owners and building managers coming to us looking for a film solution. And, this is something we can help them with!
Making Your Window Visible to Birds
If you have ever seen a bird strike on a window of a building you live or work in, you know it is horrible. It is a sad sight and almost always kills the bird. So why do birds fly into windows? The reason is simple–they don’t see them as barriers but as open air. So the way to keep birds safe from flying full speed into your commercial highrise windows is making them visible to birds.
Bird Safety Decals For Your Austin Commercial Windows
Here at Custom Tint Solutions, we have window film that will make any size window apparent to birds. They have different names: bird safety decals, fretted film, bird strike prevention films included. Basically, these films are mostly clear with small dotted patterns embedded in them. These dots are placed so they are visible to birds. THey are spaced at a distance that even the smallest bird won’t try to fly through the pattern but avoid it. They are proven to work in stopping birds from flying into highrise windows and come with some of the same benefits of window tinting.
