ABC Product Database

ABC Bird Tape logo

ABC uses Threat Factors (TFs) to indicate the relative ability of materials to reduce collisions. Products with lower TFs are considered more effective at preventing collisions. A TF of 30 should reduce collisions by at least 50 percent and is ABC's upper threshold for categorizing materials as bird friendly.
