Schwegler No. 17 Swift Box


Our proven Swift Boxes No. 17 have been used throughout Europe with great success for many decades. The light boxes are particularly suitable for mounting on existing external walls.

Material: Lightweight plant fibre concrete (100% certified asbestos-free) and wood-concrete. Galvanized fixing material.

Installation: At least 6 to 7 m above the ground or protruding parts of the building below the entrance hole (eg. roofs, pipes, etc.). Please ensure unobstructed access for birds entering and leaving the box.

The installation of several boxes will assist the rapid formation of swift colonies.

Positioning: High up on external walls of buildings of all kinds, including churches and industrial buildings, preferably under the shelter of eaves or overhanging roofs. Can also be successfully installed on steep rock faces.

Cleaning and checking: The box can be easily opened by rotating the circular plate containing the entrance hole by 90 and removing it. Swift nests are always located in the darkest corner as far away from the entrance hole as possible. Cleaning is easy and convenient with this box but is not essential if occupied by swifts.

Colour matching: The Type 17 nesting aids are supplied in a natural grey colour. If required they can be adapted to match the background, using a breathable top coat of paint.

Versions without a removable rosette: If required we can also supply these boxes without a cleaning aperture, i.e. only with the 30 x 70 mm lengthways slot. Please enquire if you require this version.
