AviProtek Pattern 211

The AviProtek pattern 211 has acid-etched visual markers on the exterior
surface of the glass. While initially being conceived as a vertical design
pattern it can also be used horizontally. This pattern has been tested by the
American Bird Conservancy with a threat factor of 23, meaning 77 percent of the time birds will avoid collision. The pattern also meets the
industry-recognized 2 X 4 Rule. Pattern 211 can contribute to earning LEED Pilot Credit 55: Bird Collision Deterrence.

AviProtek Pattern 214

The AviProtek pattern 214 has acid-etched visual markers on the exterior surface of the glass. Inspired by nature, this design meets the industry-recognized 2×4 Rule.  The random curved lines were conceived to be oriented vertically but can also be installed running horizontally. This pattern has been tested by the American Bird Conservancy with a threat factor of 30. Pattern 214 can contribute to earning LEED Pilot Credit 55: Bird Collision Deterrence.

Dot Pattern Solutions

These dot pattern solutions meet the recognized 2×4 Rule as established in many municipal regulations and guidelines. The 2 x 4 Rule refers to research by the American Bird Conservancy and others that has shown that horizontal lines must be spaced two or fewer inches apart and vertical lines must be spaced four or fewer inches apart to deter the majority of birds. The difference presumably has to do with the shape of a flying bird.
