Bird Friendly Glass
The clear choice for bird safety
Guardian Glass is using advanced UV coating technology combined with laminated glass to limit bird collisions while leaving views clear and open.
Safer glass for feathered friendsAccording to the American Bird Conservancy, millions of birds die each year after colliding with glass on buildings. Birds simply can’t tell the reflection from reality. But—unlike humans—birds can see UV light. Guardian has developed UV coating technology to make glass visible to birds and keep it transparent for people.
Bird-friendly frit pattern
Visible to both humans and birds, ceramic frit patterns are applied by fabricators to help direct birds away from glass. Approved by the American Bird Conservancy, this solution can be combined with Guardian SunGuard® SNX-L 62/34 to mitigate bird strikes and improve solar control.

Striped UV coatings on the first surface are visible to birds, but subtle to the human eye. When combined with laminated glass, these solutions offer an optimal combination of bird safety, simplicity for installers and seamless-looking exteriors for designers.
