NTGlass: The solution

Nashville Tempered Glass (NTGlass) is part of the solution to a silent crisis: up to 1 billion bird fatalities each year in the U.S. due to glass collisions. Birds struggle to differentiate real landscapes from those reflected in windows, leading to fatal impacts.

But NTGlass is changing that narrative with its Surface 1 laser-etched, bird-friendly glass.

Birds and Glass: The facts

  • Birds can’t recognize glass as a solid, leading to high-speed collisions that are often fatal due to their lightweight, fragile structure.
  • Unlike humans who learn to detect glass through cues like window frames and door handles, these cues are non-existent for birds, making glass virtually invisible to them.
  • The danger to birds is ever-present, with peaks during spring and fall migrations but remaining high near bird feeders and baths year-round.
  • Most collisions occur during the day at home windows and low-rise buildings. Skyscrapers only account for 0.1 percent of all collisions, but every building has a role to play.

NTGlass: The solution

  • NTGlass’ Surface 1 laser-etched treatment creates highly visible patterns that dramatically reduce bird collisions, amplifying avian safety without compromising aesthetics.
  • NTGlass’ solution caters to project-specific needs with tailored glass sizes and designs.
  • NTGlass offers operational flexibility, managing orders from single pieces to large-scale production runs.

Join NTGlass in making a safer world for our feathered friends with their innovative bird-friendly glass. Let’s reduce bird collisions one building at a time.
