1m Long Solar Panel Bird Spike ( Supplied in 3 sections 334mm long)

The Defender® Solar Panel Bird Spike prevents pigeons and other birds from gaining access under roof solar panels and solar water heating systems. This pigeon problem has plagued solar panel owners from the very start. The panels provide pigeons and birds with shelter and a high vantage point.

Solar panels are becoming a popular energy generation system in the UK. In fact it is estimated that 10 million homes will have them by 2020. The knock on effect of this rise means that pigeon proofing these panels has become a priority. The Defender® Bird Solar Panel Spike has been specifically designed to prevent pigeons from nesting under solar panels. The panel spikes purposely do not touch the actual panel, which means there is no chance of the Defender® Solar Panel Bird Spikes invalidating the panel's warranty.

Strip Length

The Defender® Solar Panel Bird Spike is manufactured in strips of 33.4 cm (13 inches). Solar panels come in varying sizes and all the exposed sides must be protected with panel spikes to prevent pigeons from gaining access. The average solar panel is 1.5 metres long by 1 metre wide so to pigeon proof all sides, 5 metres or 15 strips of Defender® Solar Panel Bird Spike are required.

Anti-topple Stabilisers

The base of the Defender® Solar Panel Bird Spike has been designed to position the panel spike as close as possible to the solar panel without touching it. This is achieved by the 11 anti-topple stabilisers, which fit neatly underneath the solar panel’s edge, thereby getting the pins as near as possible to the side that needs protecting. This gives the solar panel spike stability and strength, meaning it will not collapse inwards when pigeons and other birds attempt to re-enter the space under the panel after it has been pigeon proofed.
