Bird Barriers

So Beautiful and So Out of Place

Birds in warehouses, birds in airplane hangars, birds in stores. So how about a way that protects our workplaces and machinery but also birds at the same time? One answer is 1/2" mesh barrier netting. Why? It blocks all bird species humanely while preventing landing, roosting, and nesting in the rafters of hangars and large warehouses. 

Birds and Bird Droppings (as well as feathers and nesting materials):                   

  • On planes are highly corrosive--damaging coatings, aluminum, and metal, finally ruining the integrity of the structure itself
  • On engines can cause malfunctions and nest-building can wreak havoc in air intakes and exhaust systems, increasing maintenance and cleaning, causing delays
  • Damage mechanisms that are chain-driven, and can block up forklifts, doors on loading docks, electrical outlets, and panels 
  • In loading areas--costly equipment can be damaged
  • Can create health risks in storage areas by contaminating supplies
  • Are distracting and dangerous on floors for work crews, creating liability concerns
  • Are able to disrupt production altogether
