This box has a crescent shaped hole in the swift brick to one side of the box, allowing swifts access but restricting use by 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.
Swift boxes are best positioned relatively high, at a height of 5-10 metres, ideally just under the eaves. Please contact us if you wish to discuss your swift box plans – we have considerable expertise on the team.
Swift boxes are supplied with a non-removable front as standard, however should removable fronts be required, please let us know at the point of order.
