This Schwegler 1FW Bat box is one of the biggest bat boxes available which provides for the hibernation of large colonies. This box has very effective insulation material between the outer and inner walls, which also reduces the amount of condensation inside. Bats can cling to the roof or hide within the crevices made by three corrugated boards on the front panel. Also suitable for maternity roosts. As initial tests have shown this box is readily occupied by bats for hibernation.

Dimensions: 50 x 38 (diameter) cm.

More Info

This box has the same internal design as the 1FS but its special multi-layered cavity wall provides excellent insulation while also allowing the air to permeate.
This makes it ideal both for hibernation in winter and for encouraging large colonies in summer.

180 hibernating individuals have been recorded and this is not at all uncommon.

This box is a very heavy box and will require a good, firm fixing to make sure it is safe.

Siting & Fixing: Ideal for use on trees. Mounting blocks, Aluminium Nails and fixing instructions are supplied.

Interior design: There are three internal, grooved, wooden panels which can be easily lifted out for inspection and cleaning, and the same roof panel as the 1FS.

Colour: Black, grey front panel

Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete, galvanised steel hanger

External dimensions: Ø 38cm, height: 50 cm

Internal dimensions: Ø 20cm, height: 38 cm
