Swift Box No. 16 | 16S

Accessory Fixing Bracket

» SWIFT BOX No. 16 with entrance underneath

Swift nest boxes for installation in external walls of buildings or for adding to the external surface of the wall.

If wall insulation is installed this box can also be inserted into the insulating layer (see Fig. 3). Its solid construction

makes this type suitable for very exposed, sunny positions, free from any restrictions. The maximum depth to which

it can be inserted is 17 cm, and this is determined by the position of the entrance hole on the underside. The box

then projects by about 3 cm. If the box is to be installed fl ush with the external wall surface we recommend using

the Type 16S (see below), which is more suitable because the entrance hole is at the front. The retaining strip

(Order No. 00 614/1) must also be used when attaching with screws to the wall of a building or possibly when

installing in a layer of insulation (see Fig. 3).

Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete.

Siting: As No. 17 (see page 40 and 41).

Installation: Can be installed within an external wall to a maximum depth of 17 cm in order to prevent the

underneath entrance hole being blocked. It can also be attached to the surface of an external wall (or within a

layer of rendering or external insulation) using the optional Fixing Bracket Order No. 00 614/1. The box can be

painted, if desired, using standard air-permeable external wall paint.

We recommend the use of our SCHWEGLER Nest Mould

(optional Item No. 00 619/6, please see page 44).

Cleaning and inspection: Cleaning is easy and convenient but

not essential. By turning the safety catch, the front panel is easily

removed.

Interior dimensions: H 17 cm x W 36 cm x D 16 cm.

External dimensions: H 24 cm x W 43 cm x D 22 cm.

Weight: approx. 11 kg.

Order No. 00 612/7

» SWIFT BOX No. 16 S with integrated barrier to exclude Starlings

Why is it necessary to exclude Starlings? Firstly: no-one who is seriously concerned about the protection of

species has any objections to Starlings - quite the contrary. In designing starling barriers the intention is to assist

the protection of all species. Therefore we supply also various different types of nesting boxes specifi cally for

Starlings. However, we have to accept that Starlings can present a problem when they nest on buildings, usually

because of the mess that they make on and around the building, for example on "prestige" buildings or in areas used

by the public. This often results in a reduction in the number of nesting aids for Swifts, which in turn means that

fewer breeding areas are available for them. Where nesting boxes are occupied by Swifts their habits defi nitely do

not result in the fouling of buildings. Selective projects for monitoring Swifts have shown how welcome this starling

barrier is as a means of reducing unwanted occupancy.

How the starling barrier operates: The anatomy of the Starling (long legs etc.) prevents it from getting through

the barrier and into the brood chamber that lies behind it. Swifts have very short legs, enabling them to easily gain

access through this tunnel. Tests conducted over many years have proved the effectiveness of this system.

Installing the barriers in existing boxes/places: Barriers should not be installed in existing brood boxes because the Swifts enter the box at a high speed and can injure their beaks. It is well

known that when Swifts return

to their previous year's sites they tend to fl y "blind".

Installation: similar to No. 16 as shown above. However, the No.16S can be fully inserted into the walls up to

16 cm deep.

Interior dimensions: H 17 cm x W 36 cm x D 16 cm.

External dimensions: H 24 cm x W 43 cm x D 22 cm.

Weight: approx. 11.2 kg.
