VV Fig. 1: Installation in two parts

Internally it has two main areas which can be viewed at any time by

removing the front panel (see figure 1). The hole at the bottom provides the

entrance and allows droppings to fall out. The box requires no maintenance

or cleaning. Bats search for and inhabit spaces which suit their own particular habits and requirements; their differing preferences have been carefully

reflected in the design of this product. For example, the outside of the front

panel has been roughened to enable the animals to land and hang on to it

securely (see figure 2), and access is via a step-like recess to ensure that

even inexperienced young Bats quickly become accustomed to it.

Interior: Inside there are rough pieces of wood incorporated into the back

of the box which are good insulators and are used by the Bats as perches,

and the inside front has a special porous coating which helps to maintain

the ideal temperature inside the box. The internal layout means that there

are three different areas from which Bats can hang and which offer different degrees of brightness and temperature. There are also non-slip areas,

gaps ranging from 1.5 to 3.5 cm in width, and places to hide (see figure 2).

Material: The box is made of special weather-resistant, air-permeable

and rot-proof SCHWEGLER wood-concrete. Because this material is so

long-lasting, and because the design of the box prevents water entering

(see figure 3), the box will help Bats for decades. The front panel is painted

during manufacture; if you wish to match an existing colour, it can be

painted with an air-permeable wall paint.

Note that the rear has been left untreated to provide better contact with

the mortar if it is installed within the rendering on an outside wall.

All metal parts with which the animals come into contact are made of

rustproof material.

Installation: Using the four screws and plugs provided (see figure 1),

the box can be easily attached to most types of external brick, timber or

concrete walls (see figures 3 and 4). It will also attract Bats if it is placed

inside a roof space or inside historic buildings. When it is fixed to timber

we recommend that the gaps between the wall and the box are sealed with

silicone to prevent moisture being trapped.

Installation height: Position 3 metres or higher above the ground in a place

where there is a clear flight path for Bats entering and leaving the box.

Dimensions: height 60 x width 35 x depth 9 cm.

Weight: approx. 15.8 kg.

Order No. 00 760/5

This is the ideal Bat Box for all

types of Bats that inhabit buildings.

The Bats may use it for roosting,

to form a colony or to shelter their

young.
