Studies documenting bird mortality from collisions with glass on buildings estimate hundreds of millions of birds die each year in North America from this cause alone. www.ScienceDirect.com
Bird-friendly design is a growing entity within the construction industry, and Quaker Windows & Doors is proud to be a part of these progressive efforts. We offer special Bird Glass, featuring AviProtek Pattern 217, which significantly helps birds, both large and small, avoid fatal building collisions.
There are already many areas of the United States where Bird-Friendly Glass is a mandatory part of local building codes and ordinances. Those include New York City, several cities in California, Washington DC, Portland, OR, Madison, WI, the state of Minnesota and more. Others are following suit. Check your local codes to see if your project’s facade will need to implement a bird-friendly design soon as well.
Additionally, on a nationwide scale, the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) has added Bird Collision Deterrence as part of its credit system. Go to www.usgbc.org to learn more.
Quaker’s Bird Glass is optimal to meet regulations and take a more environmental approach to building. Along with its conservation qualities, Bird-Safe Glass can be used with energy-efficient glass to offer terrific energy performance, allowing you to enjoy the view in comfort, while also protecting our feathered friends.
