With constricted entry
Model 2WI has a constricted entrance opening at the front (vertically to approx. 23 mm) to minimise the penetration of water, especially for locations exposed to the weather. Otherwise Models 1WI and 2WI are the same.
This Batbox designed for the safe hibernation of bats in winter as well as for roosting, forming of colonies and raising their young during summer. The integrated isolation in combination with the well know advantages of the SCHWEGLER light-concrete material are ideal for the needs of building-inhabiting bat species all year round. The 1WI is a very good example how easy it is to assist bats in urban areas. With this Brickbox it is possible to offer newquarters or to provide replacement for destroyed or closed spaces where bats used to live. The combination of several well isolating materials in a layer structure ensures outstanding insulating properties but still guaranties sufficientair-convection and permeability. The extremely durable material will last formany decades providing shelter for the bats.
Weather resistant and breathable lightweight concrete.

If installed flush (in-wall), please note that moisture can occur in the interior. If installed on sides of the building exposed to heavy rain, we recommend use of the optional rear panel (Order No. 778/0). This minimises the penetration of moisture into the building insulation/masonry. For further info see separate info sheet; please request if necessary. The approx. 5 mm thick rear panel is glued onto the rear of the 1WI in the factory. This creates a self-contained box or roost. The total depth (1WI including rear panel, changes only slightly to around 10 cm. Inside the rear panel is lined with a gauze to ensure better grip in the hanging area.
Vegetable fibre-reinforced concrete.
