Swift Observation Box No. 15 | 14
Delta Shaped Swift Box
With the following nesting aids you can experience Swifts in a completely different, new way and at the same time protect them. They enable us to observe
and study the animals directly in their nest. Unforgettable observations are possible, not only during the rearing phase but much more besides.

» SWIFT OBSERVATION BOX No. 14
Swift Observation Box No. 14 is suitable for attaching in cold rooms near the roof, e.g. in attics, in historical
buildings, industrial plants, warehouses, lift shafts, etc.
Installation: This nesting aid is installed inside the building, attached to an external wall using the fixing bracket
supplied, screws and wall plugs. A passageway for the Swifts is created from inside the building to the outside,
either in an existing opening on site or by making one (e.g. by core drilling l 100 mm). The specially textured
passage tube supplied with the box is pushed into this opening and any existing thermal installation is bridged.
The passage tube has a maximum length of around 35 cm. It can be shorted individually to the required length.
If the walls are thicker, Swift occupancy is usually less likely.
The entrance in the external façade is fitted with an entrance hole cover made of vegetable fibre-reinforced
concrete. It can be painted or rendered if necessary.
Observation and cleaning option: Complete flap, including integrated protection against falling out (acrylic glass
pane), is removable, ensuring a full view of the whole interior. Includes: Basic box, Nest Mould, passage tube,
entrance cover, fixing bracket and screws.
Weight: approx. 15.7 kg. Dim.: H 24 x W 43 x D 22 cm plus passage tube and cover. Order No. 00 592/2
» WEDGE-SHAPED SWIFT BOX (KNEE-WALL BOX)
The knee-wall box has been designed for installation in roofs (so-called knee walls), but over the years has proven
useful in many other installation sites. It fits exactly into the ventilation openings of the former prefab concrete
buildings, found all over former East Germany.
Other installation examples are inside the building (knee wall, roof) with the help of the brackets supplied.
The Swift can reach the box through existing ventilation openings or appropriate openings in the building. The box
can also be installed on the outside of buildings (on flat roofs, under eaves, on the attic), provided there is a "sheer
drop" below the entrance (please do not install set back from the external wall).
Free installation on the external wall is also possible (it is possible that the cleaning flap can then no longer be
opened, but this is often not a problem if the box is occupied by Swifts).
Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete, zinc-plated fixing bracket. Includes: Screws and wall plugs.
Colour: The box is supplied in natural grey and if necessary can be coated with breathable façade paint in the
External dimensions: W 68 x H 20 x D 30 cm. Brooding: space 2 separate brood chambers.
Weight: approx. 14 kg (incl. fixing brackets).
