The bird strike issue is getting worse and worse every year. If you’ve ever seen one, you know how gruesome they can be. They happen billions of times a year in cities all over the world and in Salt Lake City too.

Bird strikes on windows are often deadly for the birds. Even worse, these deaths are contributing to an even bigger problem: the severe reduction of bird populations which could lead to extinction for some species.

Why the Problem of Bird Strikes is Growing in Salt Lake City

As Salt Lake City continues to grow and new houses and commercial buildings crop up everywhere, the likelihood of birds colliding with windows increases. However, we can’t put a stop to all future building projects. There is an available solution, though: fritted window film.

What is Fritted Window Film?

Fritted films are bird strike prevention films. They work by creating a physical barrier that birds can see, preventing them from colliding with windows. Fritted films look similar to regular window film but contain tiny patterns of horizontal and vertical dots or lines that are spaced about 2-4 inches apart. Although these patterns are not very visible to humans, they are highly visible to birds and let the birds know what they are seeing is a solid object, not the sky. In response, the birds avoid the window.  

By implementing a window film on the windows of your Salt Lake City structures, you would be not only saving bird lives but reaping other benefits as well. Some advantages to this include:

  • Added security
  • UV protection
  • Design and decoration
  • Added window installation
