Birds have the capacity to perceive certain ultraviolet light frequencies, a characteristic that Ornilux Mikado Glass takes advantage of to reduce the risk of bird-strikes. By incorporating an irregular printed pattern that reflects these light frequencies, the glass is perceived by birds as an impassable obstacle. The printed pattern, resembling patterns that are formed by frost or by the sticks in a Mikado game, is almost invisible to the human eye.
There are three available models:
-Ornilux Mikado Mono is a security glass formed by three layers of aviary security glass (VSG).
-Ornilux Mikado, with a 15 mm cavity, has a U-value of 1.1 W/m²K.
-Ornilux Mikado Scandic, with a 15 mm cavity, includes solar-protection glass, with a U-value of up to 1.0 W/m²K.
