This box has a crescent shaped hole drilled at either 28mm or 35mm this can be varied in the swift brick to one side of the box, allowing swifts access but restricting use by starlings or allowing starlings. Inside, a rough floor makes it easier for the birds to move around. The centre of the floor has a raised nest cup to assist the birds’ nest building. The ideal internal depth of a swift box is 140 mm, however if cavity width is limited, boxes can be manufactured with a reduced depth (minimum 100 mm). Please specify requirements at the point of order.
Swift boxes can be supplied in brick fronted, half bond and quarter bond brickwork or alternatively with a stainless steel mesh fitted to the front. The mesh is designed for optimum adhesion in render and stonework applications. A basic version can be fitted directly behind weatherboarding or into studwork. For a quotation please click here.
