Over the past decade, there has been a groundswell of interest by the Calgary municipal government, industry, and citizens in environmental issues. One serious aspect of protecting our environment is protecting birds from fatal collisions with human-made structures, and our society has not addressed this issue until now. Let’s make Calgary Bird-Safe by means of Anti Bird Strike Window Films. They are designed to protect our feathered friends while enhancing a building’s overall design.
It is estimated that collisions account for 1 billion bird deaths each year, or 10% of North America’s total bird population. In all of these collisions, buildings pose the biggest threat. Whether it be clear, tinted, or reflective, exterior glass is not a recognizable part of the natural world for birds, and therefore, they do not see it. Daytime collisions are generally associated with reflecting the glass of vegetation or the sky on the lower 3-5 floors.
Window films are an easy-to-use and unobtrusive window application that are barely noticeable to humans but highly effective in allowing birds to ‘see’ the windows, allowing them to avoid deadly collisions with windows.

A Solution for All Existing Structures
For existing buildings, adding new architectural design elements to deter passing birds is obviously expensive and time-consuming. Instead, all home and business owners have the option of an inexpensive and extremely effective solution, namely, anti-bird strike window films.
The application of these window films fulfills the needs of owners while protecting the environment around them. We understand that optical clarity is critical for building owners. Occupants do not want their views spoiled with obtrusive exterior coverings. Anti Bird Strike film provides more than 98% clear viewing. It is essentially only visible to our feathered friends. It can be installed as an effective way to protect native species while maintaining clear visibility at an affordable cost.
Improve Building Aesthetics
Bird deterrent patterns must blend in with the architecture to enhance rather than detract from the building’s appearance. Our bird deterrent solutions consist of unobtrusive and pleasing designs that do not dramatically change the architectural features.
Any bird deterrent solution must last for many years to be economically viable to building owners. You can expect a lifespan over 8 years and probably much more than that. This solution is not affected by window cleaning.
Bang for Your Buck
Our Anti Bird Strike films are easy to install, repair, or replace. For building maintenance, you also save time and money by reducing maintenance and protecting our local wildlife at the same time.
