1WI Winter Bat Roost
The Schwegler winter bat roost 1wi is a sophisticated bat box designed for the safe hibernation of bats in winter as well as for roosting. It has an attractive design and is easy and convenient to install into a wall of a
building. The interior has different surface textures at varying hanging levels, the integrated insulation in combination with the well known advantages of Schwegler Woodcrete are ideal for
the year-round needs of bat species which inhabit buildings. This winter bat box uses the patented Schwegler "double wall
system" which has been tested and proven for decades and used in many professional and scientific
projects in forests all over Europe. The overall design and combination of several well-insulating materials in a layer
structure ensures outstanding insulation properties but still guarantees sufficient air-convection and permeability.
The extremely durable material will last for many decades providing shelter for the bats. The insulation not only protects
the bats in winter but also prevents overheating during summer. This box is self-cleaning and therefore maintenance-free.
Occupants: Typical building-inhabiting bat species like Pipistrelle, Serotine Bat or Parti-coloured Bat, etc. In areas with
existing bat-colonies also Noctules or Bechstein´s bat
