Ornilux Bird Protection Glass
Around the world millions of birds a year are killed due to collisions with glass from man-made structures. Bird window strikes are one of the reasons for a decline in bird populations around the world.
Bird Deaths are caused by all glass structures, from large sky scrapers to normal residential home windows and glass balustrades.
To help eradicate this problem The Arnold Glass Group have come up with a solution in the form of "Ornilux Bird Protection Glass" - with its roots in Biomimicry Design Theory, a discipline that studies nature's best ideas and
then imitates these designs and processes to solve human problems.
Birds see light in the Ultra Violet spectrum and there is a proposed theory of how some spiders use UV reflective strands of silk n their webs.
Birds see the web and are able to avoid collision and thus preserving the spiders ability to capture their prey - Arnold Glass have used this theory and brought to market after years of research and development a product that works and saves the lives of thousands of birds.
Our challenge now is to bring Ornilux to the UK market in partnership with Architects and Façade designers to ensure that we in the UK can do our bit to help nature whilst designing buildings for the future.
There is a lot more to the science of this unique product and below are links to help you understand Ornilux in greater detail.
