Bird-Friendly Glass Solutions: Understanding the Fundamentals of Safe Design

Learn Over Lunch with Guardian Glass

Wednesday, April 12, 2023

Architecture tells us a great deal about society. In fact, glass and glazing are used to blur the lines between inside and out, helping elevate performance and the experiences of people. Yet while humans can use environmental cues to identify glass as a barrier, there is a growing realization that birds cannot.

The solution is bird-friendly glass that delivers on performance, energy efficiency, and the needs of people. This course from Guardian Glass is intended to provide the basis for a better understanding of how to recognize issues affecting the bird population while learning about best practices and design fundamentals for smarter, safer buildings.

Learning objectives

  • Recognize the basic behavioral patterns of birds
  • Identify the four most common reasons that bird building collisions occur
  • Investigate the different types of product testing
  • Assess some available and emerging glazing solutions
