> SPRING WIRE SYSTEMS
INSTALLED ON LEDGES WIDER THAN 8 INCHES TO PREVENT BIRDS FROM LANDING
Spring wire is a system that is installed on ledges that are wider than 8 inches. Stainless steel posts are installed on the ledge using either an insert that is drilled into the ledge or a prefabricated clip that is adhered onto the ledge with hardware. The posts are 1 inch from the front and back edges. Posts are then spaced at a maximum of 3 inches. They are alternated at different heights. Stainless steel wire is then run through an opening at the top of the post. One end is looped and ferruled, the other looped, ferruled and a spring attached to the post and through the wire loop. When birds try to land on the ledge the system creates a spongy feeling causing them to disperse.
The system is cost effective when compared with other available measures. It is also a low profile, low visibility system that will not detract from the attractiveness of the structure.
