The 2FR bat tube by Schwegler is for summer roosting bats that prefer to inhabit buildings. It is designed to be built in - either bricked in or rendered over into the building façade. (The narrow depth, just 12.5cm, makes it very suitable for fitting into the thermal insulation). The woodcrete shell will be cooler while the wood surface will be warmer, so the bats have a choice depending on our variable British summer conditions. Self-cleaning as any droppings just fall out of the entrance ramp.

Note: There are two versions. There is also the 1FR bat box, a single, standalone unit. However, if the bats are accessing the building interior then we recommend multiple 2FR units (as they have an optional through the passage into the wall) and not the standalone 1FR. If the bats are accessing the building interior then we recommend multiple 2FR units. Please see related products.

One more thing to know; the bat box is made from Schwegler’s Woodcrete, a tough, weather-resistant blend of wood and concrete that will last for years and won’t rot, warp, crack or leak. Woodcrete is breathable/porous, so it maintains an ideal, stable temperature inside and also provides a rough surface for the bats to cling to. Combine all this with a box design that prevents water entering it and you have a unit that will protect bats for decades.

Occupants: A summer roost for bat species that inhabit buildings.

  • External Dimensions:
  • W 20cm
  • H 47.5cm
  • D 12.5cm
  • Internal Structure Each tube has three different types of internal partition plus an optional hole in the rear panel that allows bats access to wall cavities (and their existing nests).
  • Entrance size 15 x 9 x 2cm with ramp leading inside
  • Weight: 9.8kg

  • Installation: Install into façades, either be bricked or rendered-in. The 2FR is a modular unit with optional interconnecting holes in the side panels so that it can create larger spaces with transverse connections. (We recommend a minimum of 3 units interconnected). To make the holes, gently knock out the appropriate section which will allow bats to crawl between connected boxes or the wall behind. We recommend fitting at least 3m above the ground, so a ladder will be needed. The ideal aspect is so the box receives at least some sun during the day. If it is on an existing feeding or flight route you are more likely to get occupation.
