- Commercial Applications
Commercial structures may present unique challenges for installing WindowAlert products. Landlords must contend with the cost of installation on high-rise buildings, wind, architectural esthetics, and even the theft of decals. But the need still remains. Many commercial structures make extensive use of glass and as a consequence may suffer hundreds of bird strikes per month. The greatest concentration of strikes will typically occur at or below the tree canopy.
The ideal application of WindowAlert products is decals interspersed with UV Liquid dots which creates a complete visual barrier for birds. When decals are not desired or allowed, UV Liquid may be applied—alone—without the decals. UV Liquid may be installed by window washers (typically two to three times per year) at the same time they are cleaning the windows. The window washers use our blotter to make a small dot of UV Liquid on commercial windows every two or three feet. The dot dries to nearly clear and performs like a window decal, reflecting ultraviolet light. When installed properly, visitors to the commercial structure do not see the dots – but birds do. Landlords are satisfied as they no longer have to contend with wind, aesthetic arguments, or theft.
Below are some sample commercial installations for your review.
