A Partnership Mother Nature Would Approve Of: Award-Winning Bird-Friendly AviProtek® and Solarban® Solar Control Low-e Glass

To help reduce bird collisions with glass, bird-friendly building regulations continue to increase in North America, though glazing options to address the problem have historically been limited. Vitro Architectural Glass and Walker Textures offer a bird-safe glazing solution that also saves energy: AviProtek® E bird-safe, low-e glass can help architects achieve environmental goals, earn LEED® credits and meet solar-performance targets.

Experts agree that the best way to deter birds from striking glass is through visual markers on the first (or exterior) surface of the glass to help birds “see” the glass. Through acid-etching, a wide range of patterns and styles are achievable, such as stripes, spots and dots and even one-of-a-kind patterns that evoke nature or geometrical patterns.

To learn more about bird-friendly glass, visit the Vitro Glass Education Center. For more information about AviProtek® E bird-safe low-e glass and to request samples visit
