As part of its ongoing education program, Feather Friendly® has sponsored free unlimited access to CSA’s (Canadian Standards Association) Bird Friendly Building Design Standard. This standard was developed through collaboration with many groups concerned with bird safety; ornithologists, architects, conservation authorities, glass manufacturers and industry advocates.
By communicating bird-friendly design requirements for glazing, building-integrated structures, and overall building and site design, the Standard provides a valuable resource for establishing industry wide tested and proven measures to reduce bird deaths.
Feather Friendly® started over 15 years ago by developing bird collision technology and by assisting FLAP Canada, City of Toronto and, more recently, CSA in developing these guidelines and solutions.
With the increased use of glass in architecture, guidelines and building codes are being established to make glass bird safe. To support this, many building owners and occupants are doing their part to save birds by using Feather Friendly® products to make glass more visible to birds.
