Wall-Mounted Bat Shelter 2FE
Bat Access Panel 1FE
» BAT ACCESS PANEL 1FE Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete
VV Installation within wall
This is a maintenance-free access panel for installing on or in the surface of exterior
walls. The open rear enables Bats to continue to use existing nesting sites in walls.
Bats prefer to remain in familiar nesting places and their survival can be supported
by retaining their sites within walls. The 1FE is especially suitable for use during
conversions, renovations or insulation work on older types of buildings and historic
buildings. Installation of multiple units is recommended.
Positioning: Its depth of just 8 cm allows easy integration into insulation or
masonry. If necessary it can also be attached to the underlying structure using
screws and plugs and two eyes. Install at least 3 m above the ground, ensuring
unobstructed access for Bats. Suitable for: Bat species that inhabit buildings.
Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete.
Dimensions: height 30 x width 30 x depth 8 cm.
Weight: approx. 5.1 kg.
Order No. 00 747/6
» OPTIONAL BACK PLATE FOR 1FE
If access to an existing nesting site is not required, the 1FE can be fitted
with an optional Back Plate, which includes an attached wooden panel
to create a cavity wall inside the box. The roughened surfaces of the plate,
and the inside of the 1FE itself, are very attractive to Bats.
Installation of the complete box is easy. For example, it can be
screwed to a wall or fixed within insulation.
Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete with wooden panel
(designed for long-term use).
External dimensions of 1FE with Back Plate:
height 30 x width 30 x depth 10 cm.
Weight: 2.9 kg (Back Plate only).
Total weight of 1FE and Back Plate: approx. 8 kg.

The Wall-Mounted Bat Shelter 2FE can be used as a summer hideaway just as efficiently as a winter roost
(e.g. frostproof, damp area in basements, bunkers, vaults, etc). In the summer, among other things, Pipistrelle,
Whiskered and Barbastelle Bats hang in this daytime hideaway. In the winter, all so-called cave hibernators use this
Wall-Mounted Bat Shelter as a place to sleep. Thanks to the preformed different clinging levels on the inside a large
variety of species is usually present in the shelter. The 2FE is a very effective, simple and cost-effective solution for
providing crevice-inhabiting Bats with a place to hide away.
» WALL-MOUNTED BAT SHELTER 2FE Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete
Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete, we recommend painting with airpermeable paint when installled on external walls.
Installation: Installing the 2FE is very easy using just two screws to fix it to a
wood, brick, stone or concrete wall. If the wall surface is uneven we recommend
sealing the three edges of the 2FE with silicone, foam insulating tape or a similar
method. This will ensure it is free from draughts, which is preferred by Bats.
Siting: For using the 2FE as a summer home, mount it on a wall surface
facing south or east. For winter use, install it in a location free from ice and
frost such as damp cellars, bunkers, bridges or caves. You can also install it
in an attic or other unheated room.
Cleaning and checking: The 2FE is maintenance-free since Bats' droppings simply fall out. A
torch is all you need to check if it is occupied.
External dimensions: Height 30 cm, width 25 cm, depth 3 to 5 cm.
Items supplied: This Order No. includes 2 pieces of 2FE in one box.
Weight: approx. 2.5 kg each.
