Invisible bird protection window film

Invisible bird protection window film

Glass is a must-have in the modern building industry but birds can’t see glass.

Bird window collisions are the second largest human-induced threat to birds worldwide. Effective solutions such as visible markings have to be applied to the entire window, which significantly affect the view and the architectural design.

BirdShades® bird protection window film empowers you to keep the aesthetic value of glass surfaces of your building without having a detrimental impact on biodiversity.  BirdShades® technology is based on a bird-specific ability: most birds see UV light. For humans this part of the light spectrum is not visible.

  • Transparent – almost invisible to the human eye
  • Highly effective – significantly reduces bird window collisions
  • Backed by science – developed and meticulously tested by a team of dedicated biologists and material scientists. BirdShades® bird protection window film has been recognised as an effective solution to mitigate bird-window collisions and is backed by science (Swaddle et al 2020, Zysk-Gorczynska et al 2022, Swaddle et al 2023)

The window film is applied on the exterior side of the glass, via wet application.
