How do I stop birds flying into my windows?

Pilkington AviSafe™ is an innovative glass solution, developed to greatly reduce the number of bird collisions with glass. The unique patterned ultraviolet enhanced coating disrupts the reflection on the glass, so the bird can see a barrier.

The reflection of vegetation, the sky, and other buildings are deceptive and can result in bird collisions. Birds in flight are unable to use visual signals such as window frames to distinguish the location of the glass, as a human would.

Unlike humans, birds can see light in the ultraviolet spectrum. Therefore, the coating on Pilkington AviSafe™ makes the glass more visible to birds while remaining aesthetically appealing on the exterior surface. From the inside however, it’s barely visible to the human eye, unlike other solutions.
