Structures and buildings of any shape and size often present challenges to the people who manage them. One of the unique challenges that Building and Structure owners/managers face is the presence of unwanted birds living in or on top of their assets.
Bird problems can cause millions of dollars of damage to corporate and professional buildings, structures, small businesses and even homes. There are also serious health hazards posed by bird droppings, mite-infested nesting sites and dead birds.
Ropepro recently carried out the installation of Flash Flags to a Meteo Mast in South West Victoria to prevent unwanted Birds making the Mast their home and potentially damaging sensitive weather recording instrumentation.
Flash Flags are optical bird scare devices that harmlessly deter birds from unwanted areas by making use of light beams reflected from direct sunlight. The reflective surfaces send beams around in a pattern. The light spectrum reflected back by the Flash Flag disorients birds in flight by limiting their vision. This causes the bird to deviate in flight and fly to another destination.
