This highly sophisticated Schwegler 1WQ Bat Roost is designed for the safe hibernation of bats in winter as well as for roosting, forming of colonies and raising young during summer. The integrated insulation, in combination with the well-known advantages of woodcrete, is ideal for the needs of building-inhabiting bat species all year round.

The patented "double wall system" is already tested and proven for decades in the very successful Bat Hibernation Boxes 1FW, as used in many professional and scientific projects in forests all over Europe. With the 1WQ we can offer bats a roost for all-seasonal occupation in combination with an attractive design and very easy, fast and convenient installation.

The overall design and its combination of several insulating materials in a layer structure ensure outstanding insulating properties but still guarantees sufficient air-convection and permeability. The extremely durable material will last for many decades providing shelter for the bats - maintenance-free. The insulation will not only protect the bats in cold winter but also prevent an overheating during summer, e.g. when installed in very sunny, exposed spots.

Occupants: Typical building-inhabiting bat species like Pipistrelles, Serotine Bat. In areas with existing bat-colonies also Noctules or Bechstein's bat.
