Spectrum Specialist Support offers broad experience in the choice of the bird proofing systems available and expertise in the most cost-efficient and effective way forward for your bird proofing needs.
Based in central London, we can accommodate clients Nationwide. Our rope access operatives are equipped to make whatever bird proofing choice you make appear as discreet and professional as possible while establishing a system that protects and controls wherever necessary.
We cover a full spectrum of access ranging from rope access, BMU and cherry pickers, to our own in-house painted modular pole systems. We can access the most complex buildings in a smart and cost-effective way.
At Spectrum, we always carry out high-level inspections to determine the best solution to the problem. Bird activity is measured in levels of pressure. High level. Medium level. Low level.
The level of bird activity will dictate the prescribed solution. We will undertake a free initial survey of client properties, during which all requirements and options from budget to bird species will be clarified.
Our teams operate nationwide so no matter where you are, we will be able to carry out the bird proofing solutions you require.
Bird proofing is an important part of property maintenance. Without proper bird proofing measures in place, birds will land on window ledges, balconies, gutters and other suitable surfaces. Some birds may even nest in the roofline of a property. This can lead to a build up of mess and can cause damage to the structure of a building.
Birds, especially pigeons, use buildings of all types for nesting and resting. This can cause a number of issues both for the property owners and the people using the building.
Pigeons and other birds often carry diseases. When large numbers of these birds congregate on a property, or there is a build-up of mess, it can pose a significant health risk to those living and working in the building. The mess can also cause unsightly marks on the exterior of the property.
When pigeons and other birds infest a building, they can cause damage to the structure of the property. Birds can damage the roofing of a building as well as other materials used in the property’s construction. Over time, this damage will become worse and may lead to leaks and other serious maintenance issues.
The use of the Birdnet system for high level pressure is one of the most effective and long-lasting ways of proofing buildings and other structures against all urban bird species. The system consists of a 2mm stainless steel perimeter straining cable, which is supported generally by stainless steel fixings drilled into the structure at regular centres. The cable is tensioned using a high-quality grade 316 stainless steel M5 or M6 barrel strainer and the net securely attached to it by stainless steel hog rings.
Birdpoint for medium to low-level pressure is one of the best and most robust point systems available, specially designed for areas of heavy infestation. Spike systems work well in protecting the front leading edge of buildings and are intended to stop birds perching on ledges and fouling the front of a property.
The Birdwire system for low-level pressure is one of the most widely used anti-perching methods in the UK, preventing feral pigeons and gulls from perching on the ledges of buildings around the country.
Bird Gel is long-lasting, non-toxic, and effective as the least disruptive to the aesthetics of building architecture and design. It can be used against pigeons, starlings and sparrows, and is suitable for linear problem areas such as ledges, parapets and cornices.
As a Block Manager I look for reliability, integrity and professionalism, Spectrum have not only gone above and beyond, they keep surprising us each time! Lucian is always willing to help, he has an incredible charisma and I can't thank him enough for the support he has provided us at HAUS! I look forward to continuing working with Spectrum, and wish them continuous success!
Spectrum used a ladder-less gutter cleaning system which was able to reach our gutters approximately 12m above the ground. The ladder-less gutter cleaning method meant we didn’t have to hire a cherry-picker or scaffolding, which would have been expensive and time-consuming to install and use. Spectrum staff were able to show us video recordings of the inside of the gutters during and after the clean, and also emailed the footage to us once the work was complete. Spectrum have been professional, polite and thorough in their work and I would highly recommend Spectrum for their gutter cleaning service.
Spectrum provided a top-class service from the outset, at tender stage, through to the completion of the contract. The works required the use of both BMUs and rope access. To this end they provided operatives with an excellent knowledge of their working practice and whom performed in a safe and professional manner with courtesy at all times.
Spectrum have high levels of customer service. Speed in dealing with urgent jobs. Skill in carrying out works thoroughly to high standards including finding safe ways to access difficult areas.
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 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.
Based in central London, Spectrum can accommodate clients and tackle jobs across the UK. Our rope access operatives are highly trained and are able to install all bird proofing options quickly and discreetly. All of our bird proofing systems are designed to provide maximum protection, while blending in as seamlessly as possible with the façade of a building.
Spectrum has extensive experience working on buildings of all types. This means our operatives are able to assess the specific bird proofing needs of a property and create a bespoke solution. By customising our approach for each individual client, our operatives can ensure a great result for every bird proofing project.
In order to carry out effective pest control in high-rise buildings and large commercial or domestic properties, operatives need to use a range of access solutions. We use everything from rope access and BMUs to cherry pickers and our own in-house patented modular pole systems to reach every part of a property. Using these techniques, our operatives can access the most complex buildings in a smart and cost-effective way.
Before starting a bird proofing project, we always carry out high-level inspections to determine the best solution to the issue. These inspections allow us to determine the level of bird activity in the building and identify the main problem areas. Our highly-skilled and experienced team will then be able to create a comprehensive and effective plan for bird proofing the property and solving the issue once and for all.
While Spectrum is based in London and the South East, we are able to tackle jobs across the UK. This allows us to provide a high-quality, great value bird proofing service to clients in all corners of the country.
