ODL door glass protects hatchling turtles
Thousands of marine turtles nest in U.S. coastal areas, where state and local ordinances protect hatchling turtles by limiting the brightness of inside-to-outside visible light transmittance. The goal is to prevent baby sea turtles from moving toward artificial light when they should be following the moonlight to the sea. ODL's Severe Weather® product line includes tinted gray glass that meets these code requirements.
