The Multi-System can be installed in all types of buildings, whether constructed of concrete, brick or timber.
Examples include: bridges, industrial buildings, houses, church towers and barns and the box can be installed at varied depths to suit the building. To meet the needs of various bird species, different types of front panel are available for use with the Main Cavity. This Main Cavity is supplied without a front panel which should be ordered separately (please see below). At a later stage the front panel can be changed, if desired, to accommodate or encourage a different species of bird. The Multi-System has been used very successfully in major urban conservation projects to assist species which ;have become very rare. For example, Kestrels are welcome in cities because they help to keep feral pigeons away, and are therefore encouraged to occupy historic buildings in an effort to keep them clean. Ideally, the main cavity should be set 24cm into the wall.The Main Cavity should be ordered with one of the front panels listed below.
Siting Do not install below a height of 5 to 6 m. Take care to choose the side of the building that is not exposed to prevailing winds.
Installation Depth This can be varied to meet individual requirements and the type of building construction. Ideally the Main Cavity is set 24 cm into the wall.
Density Since Jackdaws and Swifts breed in colonies, it is advisable to place a number of Multi-System Boxes in close proximity to one another. Kestrels, on the other hand, do not seek the company of their own species when nesting. However, they will happily nest among colonies of Jackdaws and Swifts. One or two Multi-System Boxes on a building or bridge will suffice for Kestrels, while a virtually unlimited number can be set up for the other two species.
Cleaning The front panels can be easily removed for access. However, cleaning is not essential, which is an important factor when installing on inaccessible places such as bridges, cooling towers, etc.
Dimensions width 44.5 cm x depth 41.5 cm x height 41.5 cm.
Weight approx. 28 kg (without front panel).
