Universal Bat Box 1FFH

BAT CONSERVATION

Native Bats are largely dependent on forests as a habitat. Female colonies

raise their young inside the hollows of old trees. The males inhabit narrow

crevices on their own, and in autumn lure the females to their mating

roosts. It is typical for all Bats to frequently move from one roost to another,

and this means they require a large number of suitable tree hollows and

crevices. However, in our forests ideal retreats are scarce.

» UNIVERSAL BAT BOX 1FFH summer roost | Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete

Through continuous research, SCHWEGLER Nature Conservation Products

has expanded its extensive range of roosting aids. The result of this development is a Universal

Bat Box with numerous innovations and many tried

and tested features:

» the universal Bat Box has both hollows and crevices where the animals

can retreat

» the high ceiling inside ensures a favourable microclimate

» crevices and hollows permit a wide range of species to roost

» a forestry-approved mounting

» maintenance-free, self-cleaning

» durable, safe and weather-resistant

» a quality product made in Germany

Summer roost: The universal box is an ideal retreat for all Bats inhabiting forests. The innovative interior design of both roosting areas provides

the Bats with an ideal climate from early summer to late autumn. The rear

compartment is perfectly designed for larger species and is sufficiently

large for female colonies and their young, as well as for groups of mating

Common Noctules.

Species inhabiting crevices, such as Nathusius's Pipistrelle and Natterer's

Bat, can use the small cavities of the forward compartment as a safe

daytime sleeping area. The narrow entrance hole provides sleeping Bats

with extra protection against predators and disturbances. The universal box

is also self-cleaning and maintenance-free. Both daytime sleeping areas

feature clinging surfaces made of untreated wood, and quality SCHWEGLER

wood-concrete. The grooved design makes it possible even for younger, less

adept animals to safely cling to the walls. The inside ceiling height is suited

to the needs of more than ten species of Bat inhabiting forests. Whenever

the weather changes the Bats can choose a sleeping area which offers

them the best possible ambient climate.

Materials: Weather-resistant, breathable SCHWEGLER wood-concrete.

Clinging surfaces made of untreated, durable wood. Stainless steel mounting bracket.

Where to install: Trees, masts, raised hides. 4 supports built into the semicircular rear surface ensure the universal box is stable, safe and secure in

windy weather.

Best installed at 3 to 5 metres above ground. Bats need numerous roosts

and retreats at all times. Even colonies move to different roosts after a few

days, sometimes even daily. It is possible to install groups of Bat Boxes of

any type, thereby increasing the likelihood of inhabitation and ensuring their

long-term use. Bats prefer the flight paths to their roosts to be unobstructed. This will reduce the time it takes for a box to be inhabited.

Cleaning and checking the box: Self-cleaning and maintenance-free.

Use a torch or mirror on the underside of the box to check whether the box

is inhabited. The universal box cannot be opened.

Interior of the box: 2 separate compartments with clinging surfaces, for

Bats inhabiting crevices and tree hollows. Dimensions: 20 cm wide, 74 cm

and 64 cm high, narrow entrance hole for protection against predators.

External dimensions:

approx. H 87.5 cm x W 24.5 cm x D 19 cm.

Weight: approx. 16 kg.
