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.

For glazing that is South or West facing (these receive the most solar heat) we would recommend Pilkington Suncool™ One 60/40 to provide year-round comfort especially in large areas of glazing such as bi-fold doors or orangeries. How it works In the warmer months, the coating reflects the sun’s heat, helping to maintain a cooler temperature.
