We may be embarrassed to admit it, but we’ve all done it: run headlong into a window or sliding glass door that we just didn’t see.People usually escape with only a bruised ego. But when birds smack into windows, the results can be deadly. That’s why we at TGF, in conjunction with world authority Dr. Daniel Klem, developed Flight Marker; a bird impact deterrent film. This initiative hopes to reduce the amount of bird to glass collisions.
The essential characteristics of this initiative make glass visible to birds. the markers must must installed on the exterior of the glazing and must conform to a minimum spacing of 2″ vertically and 4″ horizontally. The pattern provides protection for even the smallest of migratory birds.
Given the hundreds of millions of birds killed every year due to collisions with glass, this initiative is essential to protecting our feathered friends. Glass collisions are a constant threat to all birds and caused by glass on all structures – from large skyscrapers to standard home windows.
