» UNIVERSAL SUMMER BAT BOX 2FTH Material: SCHWEGLER lightweight concrete Universal Summer Bat Box 2FTH
Main Cavity for Recessed Installation
Experience with our tried and tested, Universal Summer Bat Box 1FTH has shown that wood-free clinging panels
in a large roost can be advantageous for some construction projects. This can be, for example, due to projects
requiring the approval of the property owner, planner or designer or fire safety, as well as the location itself. It has
been found that this type of roost is also used in underground basements and bunkers, where the high humidity
means that wood is undesirable. At the same time, the animals' preferences or the fact that they are used to a
cooler or more humid hanging site make this type the recommendable choice.
In addition, this model offers an alternative clinging panel look, which can be helpful for individual projects from a
planning point of view. Otherwise the 2FTH is largely the same as model 1FTH on page 49.
» Siting in the woods: Reduces the shortage of suitable tree cavities and gaps in young forests, reafforestation
and parks. To this end, the 2FTH is installed, for example, on raised hunting hides or on stud walls (Figure 3 + 4).
Occupants: Forest-inhabiting bat species such as Brown Long-Eared Bats, Nathusius' Pipistrelle Bats, Whiskered
Bats, Noctule Bats, and others.
» Installation on a building: Use the enclosed fixing bracket (Figure 1) to attach to building façades and
structures, e.g. bridges across bodies of water, motorway bridges, as well as inside buildings, e.g. attics,
basements. Is also very suitable if installed in combination with other Bat Boxes.
Occupants: House-inhabiting bat species, including Serotine, Common Pipistrelle and Natterer's Bats.
Installation height: At least 3 m. The specially shaped fixing bracket is fixed onto the respective background
with three screws and the 2FTH is hung in it.
Material: Weather resistant and breathable SCHWEGLER lightweight concrete. Inside structured clinging panels
made of SCHWEGLER lightweight concrete, rear made of SCHWEGLER wood-concrete with corrugated hanging
structure, hanging fixings made of zinc-plated steel.
Cleaning and inspection: Self-cleaning. Cleaning is not necessary. Easy to inspect from underneath using a
torch or mirror. The Universal Bat Box 2FTH cannot be opened.
External dimensions: H 70 cm x W 50 cm x D 19.5 cm.
Weight: approx. 25.4 kg. Colour: light grey.

» MAIN CAVITY FOR RECESSED INSTALLATION 1FTH / 2FTH Material: SCHWEGLER lightweight concrete
With this entrance block it is possible to integrate the 1FTH and 2FTH directly into the masonry or the insulation.
Due to the Main Cavity beneath the roost it is still possible to access all roost chambers. Thanks to the droppings
chute, droppings usually dry before they fall out. Therefore, soiling of the façade is largely avoided. This Main Cavity
is set under the 1FTH/2FTH for bricking in. To integrate the 1FTH/2FTH roost into the external thermal insulation
composite system, it can also be fixed onto the wall using the fixing bracket and the Main Cavity
is then placed on, or rather it is glued or bricked into, the insulation.
By installing the 1FTH/2FTH together with the Main Cavity, very
inconspicuous solutions can be achieved, e.g. in building conservation
structures or especially designed façades.
Material: SCHWEGLER lightweight concrete.
Outer dimension: Main Cavity only: approx. H 36 cm x W 50 cm x D 19.5 cm.
1FTH/2FTH with Main Cavity: approx. H 90 x W 50 x D 19.5 cm.
Weight: Main Cavity approx. 9 kg.
Colour: light grey.
Main Cavity Order No. 00 769/8
An optional Bracket Kit is available for additional fixing on the wall.
Is used, e.g. on thermal insulation in order to fix the FTH Bat Box with
Main Cavity on the concrete wall / masonry and then to attach the
ETICS system. Bracket Kit cannot be used for side-by-side row. (Fig. 1).
Includes: 2 angle brackets, screws, universal wall plugs.
