Description

The Bat Block is designed to create roosting space for bats within the framework of new builds, or to be retrofitted within existing properties. A simple, stylish way to help protect our Bat species and provide hibernation or maternity roosting space for them.

Bats play an important role within our environment. As well as performing some pollination, bats are a natural control of insect populations as these are their main food source. Bats are also a good indicator species of ecology health, with changes in populations reflecting local biodiversity.

The beautiful Bat Block features an internal FSC certified wooden panel, a small entrance space to deter larger birds and predators, a knock out which means you can turn several Bat Blocks into a colony and is standard UK block size.

When positioned South or West facing, the Bat Block becomes a summer maternity roost and when placed in a north facing position the Bat Block becomes a winter hibernation roost.

Details

The Bat Block is designed and made by Green&Blue in the UK.

Materials
Made from cast concrete using up to 75% waste materials from the Cornish China Clay industry.

Dimensions
215mm x 440mm x 160mm

Weight
Approx 15 kg (unpackaged)

Positioning
The Bat Block should be positioned at least 4m from ground level, in proximity to vegetation and linear features like hedgerow which bats rely on for navigation and food.

South or West facing will provide summer maternity roosts and north facing will provide winter hibernation roosts.

Installation

Build into course work using mortar mix as main build components in place of a standard brick or block. Can also be wall mounted. The Bat Block can be turned into a colony by knocking out the section on the side and installing Bat Blocks next to each other.

Maintenance

Bats and their homes are protected by law so it is important not to disturb them. The Bat Block does not require maintenance as the design allows droppings to fall from the entrance.
