BirdBlocker

Prevent bird's nests under the PV-panels? Available at Van der Valk Solar Systems: the BirdBlocker! Easy to install on almost any type of framed PV-panel, the BirdBlocker will ensure birds will need to go elsewhere to build their nests.

Prevent bird's nests under the solar panels

The output from the panels decreases when the natural ventilation beneath the panels is restricted by twigs and other nest material. The hotter the panels get, the lower the efficiency. There is even an increased risk of fire. There is also no more noise pollution from birds between the roof and the solar panels. The twigs may also cause scratches on the back sheet of the panel, resulting in earth leakage errors. BirdBlocker offer 99% certainty that birds will not go underneath your PV-panels. Mounting the BirdBlocker strips on framed PV-panels is quick and easy, thanks to the specially developed clamp brackets. Screws or glue should not be used, as the warranty of your PV-panels can be compromised. Birds simply should not get the chance to nest there.

 

Why protect your solar panels from birds?

lt usually gets too warm under the panels for the eggs to hatch successfully. Nevertheless, the birds may continue to bui Id their nests, even if you remove the twigs. The natural ventilation of the solar-system will be disturbed by the twigs, with lower yield and even a higher risk of fire hazard as a result.
Damage tot he cables and scratches at the back-sheets of the panels can cause faults. lf the birds' noise is bothering you, or you would like to screen off your panels so that it's, more difficult for birds to bui Id a nest under them, then the BirdBlocker is the solution. lf the inner rim of your panels has a flat aluminium profile, then the Bird Blocker can be quickly & easily mounted using the clips provided. The Bird Blocker system is very effective
in deterring birds from nesting under the panels when the solar-system is being installed. Take notice: when birds are al ready building nests under the panels, it is very difficult to keep them away.
