CollidEscape is applied to the outside of the glass to remove glare and reflections that birds see as the sky; but the standard product also performs equivalent to 50% window tint, blocking half of the energy from the sun that is represented by infrared radiation (heat) and ultraviolet radiation (fading and health hazards).
So, in energy savings alone, CollidEscape often PAYS FOR ITSELF.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 15% of the average home’s wall space is made up of glass, which is a very poor insulator, and the average home wastes $63 per month on energy – $760 every year!
