Here in Denver, we are lucky enough to have beautiful wildlife even in the midst of the city. The birds here are varied and beautiful and we love living alongside our feathered friends. However, bird strikes on windows are more common than you may think here in Denver and across the US. In fact, collisions into windows kill billions of birds each year. Which explains why we get a lot of questions from Denver highrise owners and building managers like “How do I stop birds from flying into my windows?”. Our answer is–” as a matter of fact there is!” find out how below.
Making Your Window Visible to Birds
If you have ever experienced a strike from a bird on the window of the building you live or work, you know it is gruesome. It is a sad thing to watch and almost always kills the bird. The reason why birds fly into windows is simple–they don’t see them as barriers, but rather, open air. So the key to keeping birds safe from flying full speed into the windows of your Denver commercial building is making them visible to birds.
Bird Safety Decals For Your Denver Commercial Windows
Here at Denver Commercial Window Tinting, we have window film that will make windows visible to birds. They go by a lot of different names: bird safety decals, fretted film, bird strike prevention films included. Essentially these films are mostly clear with very tiny dotted patterns across them. These dots are strategically placed to be visible to birds at a distance that even the smallest bird won’t try to fly through the pattern but rather around it. They are proven to be effective in stopping birds from flying into highrise windows and come with some of the same benefits of window tinting.
