Why Birds Fly Into Windows Of Homes And Office Buildings
Bird strikes may seem like something that happens to airplanes but bird strikes on windows in high rises and surprisingly even homes, are very common and bad for both bird and property owner. If you have ever seen it first hand you know the sickening thud the strike makes and the all too sad site of an injured bird sliding down the glass or falling from the sky afterward. The reason bird strikes happen is simple–the birds cannot see the windows. This is because the reflection of the sky, trees, and clouds, indicate to the bird that the window is an open place for them to fly. So, one way to stop this from bird strikes from happening and prevent the resulting damage to your home or office and birds is to have the right window tinting applied.
How To Prevent Damage From Bird Strikes On Your Denver Home Or Office Windows
While the death of birds from striking a glass window is unfortunate, it can also be bad news for your property as well. Each year bird strikes to windows cost people hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to windows: cracking, shattering and even exploding are all too common. Bird strikes often occur on transparent or highly-mirrored glass window films. Because of this, choosing a window tint with an exterior reflectivity of 10-20% like SolarGard Truevue film, you can have all the energy efficiency benefits but still, a film that makes your window apparent to birds. Other types of films that prevent bird strikes are called “fritted” films and they are specifically engineered to prevent bird strikes by using a texture visible to only birds. If bird strikes on your Denver home or office building are particularly frequent and disruptive, you may want to consider this type of film.
