Avoid accidents with Wildlife by Transparent Blue Reflectors
The transparant reflector is made of plastic with silver flakes. The silver flakes together with blue color creates a continuous high intensive light fence along the roadside.
The even curve of the carrier material reflects the light in decreasing intensity further tot he side without the whole surrounding area being lightened up unnecessarily.
Wild animals can only see and distinguish green and blue colours, yet the latter right into the UV sector! Red and orange are totally indistinguishable and only seen as different shades of green – which is why, on a hunt, we wear red high visibility clothing. For humans these garments have an
intensive signalling effect, but for animals they just merge with the surroundings. In contrast, blue is a really terrifying colour as it does almost never appear in nature and is felt as strange, i.e. potentially dangerous. A number of scientific papers about how annimals see colours have been published in Europe and the USA.
Why transparent reflectors?
The ellipse shape has to do with the animals vision of motion. Herbivores in particular have their eyes on both sides of their heads in order to avoid enemies. They don’t see very clearly, but they react very sensitively to any kind of movement (as hunters know from experience!) The transparent blue of the reflector in combination with the silver flakes constantly changing angle of light impact simulates movement as in a hologram.
On the basis of present experience there is no danger of habituation as, on the one hand, the color blue will always remain strange tot he animal, signifying danger, and on the other hand there are new generations growing up all the time (the average life expectancy of roe deer, for example, is about 3 years as o lot of them will be shot while being young).
