Note: This price includes the additional pallet charge charged by other sites for delivery on this item. (Other sites charge an extra 42 delivery for this item)

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. For easy installation, the 1WQ is detachable into two parts. First the base is screwed to the wall. After that, the front cover with the bat silhouette is attached, covering the mounting screws.

Interior design:
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 design:
The top of the two-piece box is clearly marked with a silhouette of a bat. Below this is the specially designed entrance area offering a good foothold. The wide arc forming the entrance is intended to facilitate access, especially by inexperienced young animals.

Paint / repainting in a different colour:
Supplied with a coat of light grey paint. If necessary it can be repainted to match the background, using standard, air-permeable exterior wall paint.

weather-resistant, air-permeable lightweight concrete. Any metal parts that the animals could come into contact with are made of a rustproof material. Fixing material included.

self-cleaning and therefore maintenance-free.

Dimensions: height 58 cm x width 38.5 cm x depth 12 cm.
