Sea Turtle Impact Glass

Categories // Did You Know

Does your home require Turtle Glass?

Living on or near the coastline comes with many perks, but as most homeowners [situated near the coast] know it also comes with additional responsibilities/requirements.  Besides needing extra protection when bearing the brunt of severe weather storms, many homeowners are also required to comply with sea turtle protection ordinances.  Upon hatching, baby sea turtles instinctively move toward the moonlight and into the ocean.  However, over the years as artificial lights became more common along the coastline, the sea turtle hatchlings, confused by the light, would make their way inland where they would die of dehydration or consumed by predators. 

In an effort to preserve the dwindling sea turtle population, many local government agencies enforce ordinances designed protect the sea turtles.  One such regulation includes reducing light pollution during mating/hatching season.  Many homeowners have chosen to retrofit their homes with impact “turtle glass” as a solution to both local wildlife ordinances and to protect their home from severe weather storms.  But what is turtle glass?  That answer is surprisingly simple.  Turtle glass contains an additional layer of tint, which acts as a filter to reduce light.
