Letting birds live
Bird-Strike Resistant Glass ORNILUXORNILUX 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.
