Lightweight Swift Box Type 1A

Brick Roost 1GS BIRD AND BAT CONSERVATION ON BUILDINGS

The special material used in the 1GS provides Bats which hibernate underground with the

moistness that they prefer. The material absorbs moisture from the surroundings, thereby

creating the right climatic conditions.

Use as winter quarters: The 1GS can be installed in areas protected from frost, making it ideal for

accommodating large numbers of these animals. The internal height and the volume have been carefully

designed to meet the requirements of hibernating Bats, which prefer to have the back and front of their

bodies in contact with the roost, and the interior of the 1GS recessed block with its variable cross-sections and niches is ideally shaped for this purpose.

Use as summer quarters: The 1GS is also ideally suited for summer use. Individual male Natterer's

Bats and also small groups of Daubenton's Bats often roost on open culverts and under bridges. The 1GS

block provides an ideal daytime roosting place for them and other types of Bats.

Attachment: Adjustable, rustproof brackets are used to attach it to ceilings and walls and even to the

rounded insides of tunnels. Direct contact with the wall or ceiling helps with the absorption of available

moisture and encourages the Bats to colonise a site.

Efforts to protect Bats are assisted if the 1GS block is installed in an undisturbed place free of draughts,

and where the air is moist.

Material: Special lightweight concrete that insulates and also absorbs moisture.

Attachment: With the enclosed, freely adjustable brackets (corrosion resistant).

Inspection and cleaning: Can be very easily checked from

underneath using a torch.

Cleaning is not necessary (self-cleaning).

External dimensions:

W 43 (with + 7.5 cm for each bracket) x H 20 x D 20 cm.

Interior Crevices: 25 - 50 mm, varying, horizontal and vertical.

5 types and sizes of crevice, Orientation radii to encourage

adoption.

Weight: approx. 10 kg.

» LIGHTWEIGHT SWIFT BOX TYPE 1A Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete

Developed in association with the German Environmental and Nature Conservation Organization BUND.

The lightweight nesting box is ideal for inclusion in heat insulation systems on external walls. The protruding,

ring-shaped perch at the entrance enables the box to be easily installed fl ush with the wall surface, leaving only the

entrance visible. The design makes the approach much easier for the animals, even if the external wall presents a

smooth surface.

Ideal for installing on the external walls of all kinds of buildings. The box can be mounted with the entrance hole

on the left or the right. No aperture for cleaning is provided because this is not essential if the box is occupied by

Swifts.

Installation: under or close to roofs, at least 5 m from ground on a sheltered side. When installing ensure free

access below the hole for Birds entering or leaving the box. Several boxes can be placed in a group, because Swifts

tend to live in colonies.

Occupants: Common Swift.

External dimensions: W 34 x H 13.5 x D 15 cm plus 1.7 cm for the protruding entrance ring.

Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete. Weight: approx. 2.7 kg.
