Bird-friendly glass

The custom printed design of SILVERSTAR BIRDPROTECT at the visitor centre of the Swiss Ornithological Institute in Sempach

SILVERSTAR BIRDPROTECT and BIRDPROTECT Saflex FlySafe 3D bird protection glass sustainably reduces the number of bird strikes whilst satisfying planners’ aesthetic requirements for their façade designs. The BIRDPROTECT Saflex FlySafe PVB film for laminated safety glass features three dimensional reflective sequins. These catch the light, creating a subtle sparkling effect that enables birds to recognise the glass as an obstacle. The three-dimensional structure of the nine millimeter sequins produces a subtle grid design, with the sequins spaced just 90 millimeters apart. Less than one percent of the glass surface is therefore covered by the sequin pattern, providing an almost unrestricted view.
