There is none, however, that works as well for stopping them all together than having bird deterrent window film installed. Happily, bird strike window film comes with added benefits too!

How Bird Deterrent Window Films Benefit Homeowners

By far the key benefit of bird strike window film is that it deters birds from crashing into your windows. These films are called by the name “fretted” with dots embedded in them that are nearly invisible to humans. The pattern they display is highly visible to birds and disrupts the reflection of the open sky on the window’s surface. When a bird sees windows as a barrier, not the sky, it does not try to fly through them. This saves the bird’s life and protects the glass of your home windows from damage.  

Bird Deterrent Window Film Gives Some of The Same Benefits of Other Window Films

Although they are engineered to keep birds from crashing into windows, bird deterrent films utilize many of the same technologies of other window films. This means they have some of the same benefits too. This includes things like:

  • Glare Reduction
  • UV Protection
  • Added Security
  • Energy Efficiency

When you purchase bird deterrent window film you are not just purchasing protection for our fine feathered friends but also greatly improving the performance of your Kansas City home windows too! You will save money, time, and avian lives! This is why fretted window film is a win-win for you and the birds!
