CollidEscape for RAILINGS
For glass railings, by far the most popular solution selected is one we developed for and was tested by the California Coastal Commission; this is a 2" spaced dots 3/4" in diameter applied in strips spaced no more than 4" apart, alternating from side to side to protect the approach from both sides of the railing:
We also have a budgetary option, using the same technique, but using a continuous tape rather than prespaced dots:
These 4" spaced solutions have been independently field-tested at a minimum of 50% reduction in strikes, but performance can be increased; by decreasing the spacing only an inch the performance 150% - so a 3" gap increases performance to 75% reduction, and a 2" alternating gap increases performance up to 90%.
These patterned solutions are also available in white tapes and dots, which are ideal for where seasonal migratory twilight strikes are occurring, ideal for rooftop railing applications or mountain or nature preserve flyway zones with adjacent clear railings.
