This is primarily a problem during the breeding season, when nocturnal birds fly into illuminated windows and crash.

“Reflections of vegetation, sky and other buildings can be deceptive and cause bird strikes,” says Mónica Budge, marketing manager at Vidrios Lirquen.

“Birds in flight cannot distinguish between visual cues such as window frames to distinguish between glass positions in the same way humans do,” he added.

There are many solutions, but one of the most innovative is special glass that reduces these accidents in both homes and buildings.

Pilkington AviSafe It’s called a product with a UV-enhanced coating that blocks reflections on the glass, so birds can see the barrier without bumping into it.

Unlike other solutions, this glass does not block the view of the human eye inside and has passed the WIN test, which measures the reflection of bird strikes, making it suitable for all types of windows.
