Walker Glass is proud to launch bird-safe, low-e coated, acid-etched glass products.
Walker Glass and PPG Industries have teamed up to create a sustainable answer to the question of how to provide bird-safe glazing while meeting energy efficiency requirements.
Experts agree the best way to deter birds from striking the glass is to have visual markers on the outside surface. With Walker Textures AviProtek acid-etched patterns on surface one, and high-performance low-e coatings—Solarban 60, 67, or 70xl—on surface two, the result is a powerful solution.
“This collaboration between PPG Industries and Walker Textures is truly exciting. The need for bird-friendly glazing is picking up, while solar performance targets are increasingly demanding. We can now offer a powerful option to architects and building owners that need to achieve both objectives. The use of the acid-etched surface on the outside surface of an insulated unit has been proven in countless projects across North America and is also backed by our 10-year warranty against surface degradation,” says Walker’s business development manager, Marc Deschamps.
