Save birds’ lives, without sacrificing sustainability, solar control or aesthetics.

While glass is widely acknowledged as one of the most economic, versatile and beautiful building materials, millions of birds are killed each year flying into glass windows, curtainwalls and facades. This has led to a surge in legislation for bird-safe building materials in the U.S. and around the world, including the Bird-Safe Buildings Act, which was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on July 1 and will soon be introduced in the U.S. Senate.

Are you supporting sustainable, bird-safe design in your glass specifications?
