Specialist Solar Panel Bird Proofing

10 Year Solar Panel Proofing Guarantee

Solar panels have increased in popularity in recent years as society in general moves towards a greener environment. The cost savings following the initial investment can be significant, with some of our clients even reporting a generation of power from starlight! As fantastic as this is, what the installers don’t tell you is that by having solar panels fitted you have created a warm safe harbourage for birds, especially feral pigeons. Unfortunately, once pigeons have identified this, they are unlikely to move on without some sort of human intervention which means a large population can soon be established, resulting in a build-up of nesting materials, eggs, and guano which can pose a significant risk to health and safety if left unaddressed.

Birds Nesting Under Your Solar Panels?

Safety First

Health and safety is paramount when working at height and where possible we will use our specially designed, HSE approved ladder and roof ladder harness system to safely access your roof and carry out the work quickly and efficiently. We have invested in specialist solar panel spanning ladders giving a clearance of 23cm beneath, keeping all weight away from direct contact with the array, and also have a full in-house rope access system available to use but in the event that this is not possible, we will advise you on the best access options to implement such as scaffolding or mobile elevated work platforms.

Highest Quality

High-quality 25mm galvanised steel mesh is installed around the sides of the solar panels to prevent birds from gaining access to the areas underneath them. Due to warranties and guarantees on solar panel installations, we highly recommend using our specialist non-intrusive solar panel mesh clips to fix the mesh in place. However, we can use alternative methods if required. If there are ever any issues surrounding the specified method of fixing, we will always advise you prior to using any alternatives. All equipment used is obtained from the leading industry suppliers and is of the best quality available.

10 Year Guarantee

Our specialist 25mm x 25mm solar panel mesh comes galvanised as standard in gauge 16, pre-cut to suit the height of a typical solar array. This is the best type of mesh to use as it will stand up to the test of time (and birds!) and is specifically made for this purpose as opposed to inferior alternatives that are weaker and will rust quickly. The clips used to affix the mesh to the panel are non-intrusive, hooking under the base of the panel and being held in place with a retaining nut and washer. We obtain all of our materials in bulk, directly from the manufacturers meaning our costs are far more competitive than our competition. We are so confident in our products and installation techniques that we offer a 10-year guarantee on all work!
