World Migratory Bird Day
World Migratory Bird Day – May 14, 2022
World Migratory Bird Day is an annual awareness-raising campaign highlighting the need for the conservation of migratory birds and their habitats. Since 2006, it has been an effective tool to help educate people on the threats faced by birds. One of the greatest threats are glass facades. Collisions with glass account for up to one billion deaths in North America according to the American Bird Conservancy (ABC).
We are proud of our bird-friendly glazing products that help birds to navigate around the built environment and avoid unnecessary deaths due to collisions with glass.
Bird-friendly materials, including glass, are defined as having a threat factor value of 30 or less. The ABC uses Threat Factors (TFs) to indicate the relative ability of materials to reduce collisions. Products with lower TFs are considered more effective at preventing collisions. A TF of 30 should reduce collisions by at least 50 percent and is ABC’s upper threshold for categorizing materials as bird-friendly.
GlasPro Bird Safe UV glass was tunnel tested by the ABC and earned a Threat Factor of 21, exceeding the standard for effective bird collision deterrent materials.
GlasPro Bird Safe UV, a bird-friendly glass with ultraviolet reflective patterns, can help prevent bird-window collisions while being highly-transparent to the human eye. Birds avoid the glass because they can see the patterns in the ultraviolet reflective glass. Learn much more here.
