SCHWEGLER has extended its product range for efficient 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 five 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 find their ideal lair in the conically tapered gaps of the front area. Larger species such as the Serotine Bat and the Common Noctule Bat find 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 fixing 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 finish: 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: W 50 cm x H 70 cm x D 19.5 cm.
Weight: approx. 25 kg.
Includes: Roost, bracket, screws, plugs.
