ORNILUX laminated glass for free-standing glass applications such as guardrails, windscreens or enclosures is produced as a triple laminated configuration with the collision deterrence coating on 2 surfaces thus protecting both sides of the glass.
ORNILUX insulated and laminated units can be heat-strengthened or tempered. Download the ORNILUX Brochure for available configurations, coating options, thermal performance values and maximum sizes.
Pricing and lead-time available upon request. Arnold Glas offers matching, non-Ornilux IGU's for areas of glazing not scheduled for bird-protection glass. Please visit www.arnold-glas.com or download Arnold Glas Product Overview.
It is important to understand general strategies for bird-friendly design in choosing appropriate solutions, and also that no treatment reduces 100% of collisions. ORNILUX works on the principle of UV reflectance and therefore requires exposure to natural light for optimal signal strength of the pattern. Design elements such as deep overhangs or installation of ORNILUX on the interior of a building may minimize effectiveness. And design elements that attract birds (such as bird feeders) should be avoided or appropriately positioned, as they can increase the amount of bird collisions.
According to American Bird Conservancy’s Bird Smart Glass program, “no window product, including ABC-tested products, can guarantee elimination of window collisions. Results will vary depending on local bird populations, landscape conditions, product used, and building design.”
More information about bird-friendly design techniques can be found at American Bird Conservancy Design Guidelines and Bird Smart Glass page, and San Francisco Standards for Bird-Safe Buildings, or please feel free to contact Arnold Glas staff for design consultation.
