If you’re a bird, window collisions are no joke. We’re talking up to 42 million bird deaths per year in Canada all thanks to clear and reflective window glass.
But lucky you! You’re a human who can help deter deadly bird-meets-window scenarios by applying vinyl feather-friendly markers.
BC is on the leading edge of bird strike prevention. If you’re a Vancouver developer, planner, designer or private/public landowner, you’re likely already familiar with the Bird Friendly Landscape Design Guidelines.
TINT’D offers the leading anti-bird strike product currently on the market: Feather-Friendly®. This made-to-order vinyl product is applied to exterior glass and uses markers with specialized spacing patterns for max bird protection with minimal visual impact for us humans.
TINT’D can help you make the best choice for your windows, and for the birds.
If you read the IWFA standards for installation (aka, the standard most companies go by), you’ll learn about the 6-foot rule. That means that an install passes muster if you stand 6 feet back at a particular angle and can’t see a bubble or flaw of any kind.
We don’t think 6 feet is a great indicator, so if after the window film adhesive fully cures (30-90 days, depending on the product) and you see anything that bothers you, you give us a call. We’ll fix it, asap.
