All CollidEscape offerings on this site are compliant with performance
standards as prescribed for the City of New York; all solutions. To further
defend birds, any solutions recommended by CollidEscape adheres to
the 2" x 4" standard rule accounting for different bird sizes and species
but are also flexible enough to execute the more aggressive 2x2 standard
indicative in New York. To gain an 'Acceptable' Avoidance Index Score
from American Bird Conservancy, the 2″ x 4″ rule: Two inches or less of
horizontal space or four inches or less of vertical space between pattern
markings must be maintained, but a 2"x2" pattern is preferable for even
better performance under all glass installation conditions.

All patterns, spaced no greater than 2" apart, even if in a staggered
pattern, have been independently field tested to perform, with a threat
factor equivalent to between 3-20, depending on options and
configurations, as well as all proposed pending modifications. Contact
us for any specifics.
