Why do I need solar panel bird protection?

Protect your solar panels

Bird invasions can cause solar panel defects as birds can tamper with the electrical wiring while nesting. Bird droppings are highly acidic and can cause permanent damage and erosion to the solar panels aluminium frames and stain the solar panel facade, leading to loss of solar panel function. Bird-related damage is often not covered under the panels warranty.

Prevent damage to your property

Bird mess and nesting ruminants accumulate under the solar panels. Nesting material and feathers create blockages and water build-up under the solar panels. This build up can seep through the shingles and tiles into the roof sheathing and insulation on tiled roofs.

Protect your health

Bird nesting material and droppings contain various parasites and transmissible diseases, which negatively impact your health. Close bird besting proximity to humans can transmit mites and lice infestations. A build-up of nesting material also attracts other pests, such as vermin.

Maintain property aesthetics

Bird droppings on your solar panels look terrible, and the dropping’s acidity leaves permeant discolouration and stains on your property. Birds will also leave droppings and nesting ruminants on roofing eaves, verandas and gutters, negatively impacting your property aesthetics.

Reduce roofing maintenance

Birds inhabiting the space under your solar panels leave their eggshells, grass, nesting materials resulting in fouling build-up. In some cases, birds can trap themselves underneath the panels and die. Solar panel cleaning is an arduous task that risks your safety and damage to your roofing system and property.

Stop noisy nesting birds

Birds nesting and roosting is often a loud affair. Baby birds are also notoriously noisy while remaining in the nest, most often during the night time. Some Melbourne bird species even live in communal families, which add to the noise. Enjoy peace and quiet by installing a bird guard on your solar panels today.

Why choose us for bird proofing solar panels?

How we bird proof your solar panels

The best bird-proofing method for protecting your solar panels from birds is using our Solar Mesh. We designed and manufactured this wire mesh bird guard product specifically to help with bird prevention for solar panels.

Other kinds of bird guard mesh reduce air flow meaning your panels heat up which would diminish the amount of energy your panels can collect per day. Our solar mesh is specially designed to avoid this problem, so you can safely use it to protect your panels from damage.

The high strength solar panel mesh effectively prevents birds’ access, and the specific design of the solar panel mesh allows plenty of air to flow through without interruption.

The solar panel mesh is also unlikely to cause any harm to the birds; it merely prevents them from being able to get at your solar panels to cause damage.

We also are the only company Australia able to offer a bushfire protection compliant solar mesh screening installation using on of our aluminium mesh types with specialised fittings.
