Urban Bird Control
Bird Netting for any situation
Bird netting consists of UV stabilised polyethylene and can come in different colours to match the background colour of the building or structure. Netting presents a physical barrier to exclude the most persistent of birds and can be configured horizontally, vertically or at an angle to accommodate most buildings, structures and areas. This is secured into position by being attached to straining wires tensioned through a series of fixed eyebolts to provide a neat taut finish. Our specialist bird control netting team have many years of experience installing pigeon, gull & other bird netting to a wide range of different buildings to provide bird proofing and gull proofing solutions.
