Bird-Strike Resistant Glass ORNILUX

Photo courtesy of Arnold Glas.
ORNILUX is a specially developed impact-resistant insulated glass that can be used in all window or facade installations, just like conventional insulated glass. The Max Planck Institute for Ornithology supported the development of ORNILUX by conducting extensive field testing in the Radolfzell Bird Sanctuary to investigate a bird’s ability to recognize glass sheeting. Based on these test results, ORNILUX can now be recommended to architects or builders to minimize the effects of bird-strike in buildings having large glass installations – without requiring the use of visual barriers which are disturbing to people.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bird-Safe GlassNot yet widespread but offering great potential is Ornilux bird-safe glass created by Arnold Glas in Germany. The glass has a special layer that reflects a UV spectrum that birds can see but people cannot. The technology is based on spider webs, whose silk works in a similar way to keep birds from flying through them and destroying them.

Using technology to save birds from crashing into the glass and at the same time preserving the reason for glass in the first place.

This glass is designed to prevent birds from flying into it and breaking their necks. Would love to see this used in any large expanse of glass...
