EXPERT SOLAR PANEL BIRD PROOFING

 LONDON, SURREY, SUSSEX, KENT, HAMPSHIRE, ESSEX 
MIDDLESEX, BUCKS, BERKS, & HERTS

  • ​Integrum Services use only the safest and most effective ways of excluding birds from under your solar panel array. Due to the health and safety risks associated with pest birds and their guano, as well as the risk of damage to your solar panels, we will always make sure that no birds are left trapped under the panels, will sanitise the area, remove bulk fouling, and remove nesting materials as standard on all jobs. In the event that your property is directly fed by overhead power lines, we will work with the relevant electricity distribution company to determine the safest way to complete the project.

 

  • High quality 25mm galvanised steel mesh is installed around the sides of the solar panels to prevent birds from gaining access to the areas underneath them. Due to warranties and guarantees on solar panel installations, we highly recommend using our specialist non-intrusive solar panel mesh clips to fix the mesh in place, however we can use alternative methods if required. If there are ever any issues surrounding the specified method of fixing, we will always advise you prior to using any alternatives. All equipment used is obtained from the leading industry suppliers and is of the best quality available.

 

  • WE KEEP THE COSTS OF ACCESS LOW: Health and safety is paramount when working at height and where possible we will use our specially designed, HSE approved ladder and roof ladder harness system to safely access your roof and carry out the work quickly and efficiently. We have invested in specialist solar panel spanning ladders giving a clearance of 23cm beneath, keeping all weight away from direct contact with the array, and also have a full in-house rope access system available to use but in the event that this is not possible, we will advise you on the best access options to implement such as scaffolding or mobile elevated work platforms.

 

  • All of our installation team are fully qualified, British Pest Control Association members, with many years of experience in dealing with a variety of pest related issues.

 

  • Checkatrade & Chas Accredited, BPCA Member Company, Certified to EN16636, & ISO 9001:2015

THINGS TO CONSIDER

​We hope you choose us to complete the work for you, however if you
do decide to go with another company, here are some things to look out for -

• Are they a pest control business or simply a builder or roofer who thinks they can complete the work effectively?

• Check the quality of materials. Many people are using cheap garden mesh bought from discount retailers and are passing it on to customers at a hugely inflated cost or sheets of 50 mm mesh roughly cut on site under the pretence of being "bespoke" when in fact it's just a cheaper alternative.

• Are fixings non-intrusive so as to protect the warranty of the panels? If so, be sure to check that they are genuine fixings, not just cable ties described as being "UV stabilised". Although they have their place in this type of work, they should not be relied upon as the main method of installation.

• Will the mesh actually be fixed or simply bent under the frames of the panels?

• Are they proficient in bird control and do they hold a license to lawfully remove birds?

• Is the COMPANY a BPCA member, not just an employee or two with an entry level certificate? This is crucial as many companies still operate completely unregulated but advertise as having RSPH or BPCA trained staff. They may be trained but are they qualified? Ask to see proof if you are unsure.

• Are they CEPA / EN16636 certified? Don't just take their word as the truth, check for verification.

• Will waste be removed and contaminated areas treated with a biocide? If so, is the company registered as an upper tier waste carrier?

• Beware of anybody who can complete the work too quickly. Why are they able to get the work done within a day or two? We may have a slight wait but for good reason and the differences in quality will be obvious.

• If somebody says they can do the work for £200 - £300, what sort of finished product will you be left with?
