Brick Box 1HE
» BRICK BOX 1HE for Birds which nest in recesses or cavities
This popular design is a lightweight nesting box made of plant fibre and is intended
for installation in or on external walls of buildings of all kinds.

Cats and Martens. When installing on a wall, please order the 1HE
including Mounting Bracket (Order No. 00 632/5).

see Figs. 1, 2, 3. The box is supplied without a mounting strap and is inset or built
into the wall.
» On the external surface of the wall. The box is screwed to the wall using the
strap supplied (see Figs. 4, 5).

to match the background surface.

» FAÇADE NEST No. 11 FOR HOUSE MARTINS Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete
This nest has been developed to enable House Martins to breed successfully on external
façades without overhanging eaves and has proved highly successful. The unique, modern
design certainly forms an attractive addition to our towns and villages.
Material: Durable, weather-resistant and air-permeable SCHWEGLER wood-concrete,
painted in a light grey colour. All the metal parts have been rustproofed.
Siting: On an unobstructed external façade without overhanging roof, or alternatively,
directly under overhanging eaves. House Martins always nest on the outside
and never on the inside of buildings. Install on the sheltered side of the building.
Screws and plugs supplied.
Height above ground: At least 2 m or above.
Cleaning: Both of the nest bowls can be completely removed from the base.
The principle is the same as that for No. 9A. They are removed by undoing the screws
holding the nest (see Fig. 1). This gives a clear view of the entire nest-bowl. Following
cleaning the nest bowl is reinserted ( see Fig. 2) and secured (see Fig. 3).
Overall dimensions: H 17.5 cm x W 43 cm x D 17.5 cm.
Weight: approx. 6.3 kg.
