Schwegler 1WI Bat Winter Roost


The 1WQ and 1WI are Bat Boxes for year-round occupation to be installed on or within external walls. The special multi-layer insulation of these two Summer and Winter Bat Boxes provide an attractive and safe place for building-inhabiting bat species over the whole year. With their patented cavity wall system the boxes provide effective winter accommodation it is based on the same design that has already been used most successfully in our Type 1FW winter bat boxes in woodlands. The special design uses SCHWEGLER wood-concrete, which has excellent insulating properties, together with a special insulating material. This not only provides good insulation but is also air-permeable and retains these properties for many decades.
The insulation also prevents the interior from overheating in the summer, for example if the box is installed in an exposed site. Thus both boxes are therefore ideal in summer for encouraging the formation of colonies and as a place where bats can raise their young, but also in winter as a secure place for hibernation.
Suitable for typical bat species that inhabit buildings, such as common pipistrelle, serotine bat, parti-coloured bat and occasionally noctule and Bechstein's bat.

Suitable sites:
On all types of buildings, whether of concrete, masonry or timber construction. Also suitable inside and on the walls of ancient buildings, highway structures, industrial premises or residential buildings.

At heights of between 3 and 5 m and above. Ensure unobstructed access for bats entering and leaving.

The 1WI is usually set into an external wall or incorporated in the masonry and then rendered flush with the surface so that only the entrance is visible. Self-cleaning and therefore maintenance-free.

Interior:the interior has a variety of different surfaces at various heights, from which the bats can hang. Along with certain climatic advantages this arrangement enables the individual species to find a suitable roost.

Exterior:the funnel-shaped entrance area is provided with small steps offering a good foothold, making the box more acceptable, especially for inexperienced younger animals.

Colour:the one-piece box is supplied unpainted.

Material: weather-resistant and air-permeable light concrete.

dimensions:height 54.5 cm x width 34.5 cm x depth: 9.5 cm.

Weight:approx. 15 kgs.
