Our feathered friends can often become feathered FIENDS! BS Fixings are proud to introduce a new range of bird prevention methods which are safe, easy to install and, above all, humane. There are several different types in the new range; one of these is seagull prevention spikes.
Seagull prevention spikes from BS Fixings are designed to protect roofs, chimneys and ledges from seagulls and other large birds. They are manufactured using 304 grade stainless steel of professional quality, ensuring robust, long-lasting and effective results.
These bird prevention spikes are sold by the metre; each metre comprises three sections of 33.4cm. If shorter lengths are required, it is a simple matter to snap the base of the product to create 3cm sections. Each base has nine snappable sections so that length can be effectively customised.
Seagull prevention spikes can protect ledges with depths of up to 27.5cm. Wider ledges can be installed with a second set of bird prevention spikes, leaving a tiny gap between the tops of the pins. Each section consists of 20 stainless steel pins; individual spikes are approximately 15cm long.
Installing seagull spikes is quick and simple; the best way to attach the base is using bird spike fixing silicone, which is also available on our website. The tough adhesive goes through the holes in the base of the spikes, forming cruciform rivets that lock the spikes firmly in place. Nails or screws, also available from BS Fixings, can alternatively be used to attach the spikes to the surface.
