Universal Bat Summer Roost 1FTH

The Bat species that live in Germany use a large range of

different types of roosts in the summer. Bats that live in

woods and forests rear their young in tree holes or crevices.

Village Bats use niches and cracks in buildings or spacious

attics. Each Bat species is so highly specialised that they

cannot use any lair. Bats are therefore very constant in their

roosts and each year return to the same site. However,

among other things, weather changes with fl uctuating

temperatures and species-specifi c annual cycles lead to

frequent changes in roosts. Observations of female colonies

show that even mothers with their young can change lairs

several times within a few days.

This results in a large demand for suitable lair options, as a

single female colony uses numerous roosts in the summer.

This is why there is a regular shortage of suitable Bat roosts,

both in built-up areas and in forests.

SCHWEGLER has extended its product range for effi cient Bat protection and

has developed the 1FTH Bat Box for universal use, which can be installed

in the woods or attached to structures. A Bat Box with diverse interior

geometries has been designed, based on the most recent experience and

current results of Bat research. This Bat Box integrates fi ve roost chambers

with different properties (see Figure 1 + 2). The hanging areas not only

differ spatially but are also climatically differentiated. The smallest Bat species such as Pipistrelle, Soprano Pipistrelle and Whiskered Bats fi

nd their

ideal lair in the conically tapered gaps of the front area. Larger species such

as the Serotine Bat and the Common Noctule Bat fi nd ideal summer and

mating roosts in the spacious areas.

Different chambers are interconnected, so that it is possible to change

hanging area within the roost. The open rear panel allows access to the

inside of the structure if necessary. The most important new feature of the

roost in the new ventilation (supply air) we have developed. It ensures the

best air conditioning, both for individual animals and for larger groups.

The special material used for the Universal Summer Roost 1FTH has been

matched optimally to the needs of Bats. For example, it is able to store

surplus moisture and to emit it during dry periods. This means a continuously balanced microclimate is created inside the 1FTH roost. It is possible

to install a row of several type 1FTH roosts using a recess in the side with

predetermined breaking point (Figure 5).

» Siting in the woods: Reduces the lack of suitable tree cavities and gaps

in young forests, reafforestation and parks. To this end the 1FTH is installed,

for example, on raised hunting hides or on stud walls (Figure 3 + 4).

Occupants: Woodland Bats such as the Brown Long-eared Bat, Nathusius'

Pipistrelle, Brandt's Bat, Common Noctule and others.

» Installation on a building: Use the enclosed fi xing bracket (Figure 1) to

install on building façades and structures, e.g. bridges across bodies of water,

viaducts, as well as inside buildings, e.g. attics. Also in combination with

other Bat Boxes.

Occupants: Serotine Bats, Pipistrelle Bats, and others.

Installation height: At least 3 m high. The specially shaped fixing bracket

is fixed onto the respective background with screws and the 1FTH is hung

up in it.

Material: Weather resistant and breathable SCHWEGLER wood concrete.

Interior fi nish: Corrugated SCHWEGLER wood-concrete and untreated

corrugated plywood. Zinc-plated hanger.

Cleaning and inspection: Self-cleaning. Cleaning is not necessary.

Easy to inspect from underneath using a torch or mirror.

The Universal Bat Box 1FTH cannot be opened.

External dimensions: H 70 cm x W 50 cm x depth 19.5 cm.

Weight: approx. 25 kg.
