Description of the Swift Box No.16
This Nest Box can be installed within an external wall to a maximum depth is 17 cm in order to prevent the underneath entrance hole being blocked. It can also be attached to the surface of an external wall (or within render or an external insulation layer) using the optional Fixing Bracket. The box can be painted, if desired, using standard air-permeable external wall paint.
At least 6 to 7 m above the ground. Please ensure unobstructed access for birds entering and leaving the box.
High up on external walls of buildings of all kinds, including churches and industrial buildings. A clear distance (drop) below the box is recommended, preferably 5 m or more.

Cleaning and inspection: Cleaning is easy and convenient but not essential. By turning the safety catch, the front panel is easily removed.
Description of the Swift Box No.16S
Nesting box for installation on or in external walls. Where insulation is included in the façade the box can also be inserted into the insulating layer. The box has a built-in starling barrier at the entrance as an effective means of preventing starlings from occupying the box.
Suitable for: Common swift
Installation: 2 recommended forms of installation:
A. Set into the external facade
Can be bricked in or installed in the façade. Flush mounting is also possible. If the wall includes insulation the box can also be built into the layer of insulation. In such cases the mounting strip shown below can be used, see Figs. 5 & 6.
B. On or in the outer surface of the facade
Surface mounting is also possible, for example on house walls. In this case a mounting bar, Order No. 00 614/1, should be used. When set into an external wall the box also can be painted with standard air-permeable external wall paint.
Height and direction: The entrance hole should be located at least 5 m above the ground. Please ensure that birds entering and leaving have unobstructed access. The installation of several of these nesting aids in each building will help the rapid formation of colonies of swifts.
Material: Air-Permeable SCHWEGLER wood concrete
Cleaning and inspection: For inspection purposes the front panel, with a device to prevent occupants from falling out, can be completely removed. Cleaning is not necessary, if occupied by Swift.
Colour: Light grey, main box coated, natural grey front panel. When attached to external façade it can be easily painted using standard, air-permeable exterior wall paint to match the colour of the wall.
