The Eco Bat Access Box provides access for bats to existing roost sites. When buildings are renovated or refurbished, the Eco Bat Access Box can be installed so that bats can continue to utilise their existing roost. In addition to providing access to existing roost sites the Eco Bat Access Box provides a new roost space for bats with two parallel crevices ideally suited to pipistrelles and other crevice dwelling bats. The box can be incorporated during both new build or renovation projects into brickwork, stonework, timber cladding or external insulation or cladding. For ease of installation into brickwork, the box is sized to replace six standard UK bricks without obstructing the cavity but permitting bats access to the cavity of a building.
The box consists of an external shell of UV stabilised recycled plastic to provide sealed, long lasting weather protection whilst internally it features a wooden box made from FSC® Certified oriented strand board (OSB) providing a roost chamber for the bats. The box requires no maintenance as it is designed with angled baffles which mean droppings simply fall out of the entrance slot. The box is available with either brick or black coloured front panels to fit in with the surrounding wall surface.
Please note: All bats and roosts are protected by law and you should only disturb a bat access box to check it if you hold an appropriate licence.
