What is turtle glass?
Turtle glass is glass that has been tinted to reduce light projection and has a visible light transmittance of 45% or less.
Why is turtle glass required in certain areas?
In 1993, the Florida Department of Natural Resources adopted the Model Lighting Ordinance for Marine Turtle Protection, which requires local municipalities to develop guidelines for controlling beachfront lighting and protecting the habitat of marine turtles. Beachfront residents and businesses are required to close their blinds or drapes and limit outside lights after 9 p.m. during sea turtle nesting season. Turtle glass is the perfect alternative – limiting light but still allowing residents to protect their view.
