There are a number of different bird proofing solutions available to property owners and management companies. The method(s) chosen will depend on a number of factors. Our experienced operatives will be able to advise clients on the best solution for their needs.
Bird netting is an effective and long-lasting way of bird proofing a building. Often used on high-rise buildings, bird netting prevents all urban bird species from colonising and using a property.
Our operatives use the Birdnet system. This system consists of a 2mm stainless steel perimeter straining cable supported by stainless steel fixings. These fixings are drilled into the structure of the property at regular intervals to provide a strong, solid anchor for the cable. The cable is tensioned using a high-quality grade 316 stainless steel M5 or M6 barrel strainer. The net is then securely attached to the cable using stainless steel hog rings.
Once in place, this system is strong and durable. It can be adapted to suit most properties and is effective against almost all species of bird.
Bird spikes act as a useful deterrent for birds and prevent pigeons and other species landing on surfaces and causing mess. The Birdpoint system, used by Spectrum, is one of the best and most robust point systems available. It is specially designed for areas of heavy infestation and is effective against almost all urban bird species.
Spike systems work well in protecting the front leading edge of a building. They are intended to stop birds perching on ledges and fouling the front of a property. Spikes can be installed at all levels of a property.
Bird wire can be installed on a property to prevent birds perching on the building. Spectrum uses the Birdwire system, one of the most widely-used anti-perching methods in the UK. It is effective at preventing feral pigeons and gulls from perching on the ledges of buildings, and is used in towns and cities across the country.
Bird Repellent Gel
Bird repellent gel is a long-lasting, non-toxic bird proofing solution. Specially formulated, Bird Gel is effective at repelling a wide variety of birds. Using this method reduces disruption to a building and has minimal impact on the aesthetics of a property. It can be used against pigeons, starlings and sparrows. Bird Gel is suitable for linear problem areas such as ledges, parapets and cornices.
