Glass that performs and protects

As part of Guardian’s approach to bird-friendly glass, Guardian Bird1st™ Lami allows architects and designers greater flexibility in meeting a project’s performance while helping to prevent birds from colliding with glazed facades. Guardian Bird1st Lami is made with Saflex™ Flysafe™ 3D PVB interlayer with embedded sequins that catch the light, producing subtle twinkles that help deter birds, and give architects the freedom to create facades that stand out.

The grid pattern consists of rows and columns of discreet 3D sequins that are 9 mm (0.35 in.) in diameter, separated on all sides by 90 mm (3.5 in.) When viewed from outside the building, the sequins subtly sparkle and help birds perceive the glazing as a physical barrier.

Sequins are discreet and optimally placed to help limit visual disturbance for the building occupants.
