Protect Birds with These Bird-Safe Glass Building Facade Options

June 24, 2024
Choose from multiple textures and hundreds of colors.

Bendheim’s entire channel glass line is now certified as Bird-Smart by the American Bird Conservancy (ABC), offering bird-safe building facade options that are a stunning alternative to flat architectural glass or traditional opaque building walls. Specifiers can choose from multiple surface textures and hundreds of colors, plus thermal performance coatings, insulation inserts and frame systems. Channel glass can be manufactured in lengths up to 23 feet tall and can be installed in openings spanning hundreds of feet without interruption.

The glass also contributes to sustainability initiatives in other ways; Bendheim’s Lamberts glass, for example, contains 40-50% recycled glass, of which 25-35% is post-consumer content. Bendheim channel glass has also received Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and Health Product Declarations (HPDs). Channel glass façade systems diffuse light and minimize glare, while also offering thermal performance with a U-value range of 0.49 to 0.19.
