How to repel birds from rooftops using laser technology
Many industrial sites and factories consist of large buildings with long, flat roofs. These roofs are ideal places for birds searching for food and a safe haven for nesting. Bird presence can cause nuisance in different ways, for example fire hazard caused by building nests in ventilation shafts, leakage by clogging roof-gutters, compromize safety on-site, transmit diseases, and leave droppings that damage products, cars and equipment. Some companies even experience aggressive sea gulls attacking their customers.
Clean-up and repair costs are high. Either specialized companies need to be contracted or employees must climb the roof. Apart from the expenses, also safety is an important issue. Effective bird control is therefore essential.
Innovative laser technology
The principle of repelling birds with a laser beam is inspired by nature. Birds perceive the approaching laser beam as a physical object. It appeals to the survival instinct, causing the birds to fly away. It is safe, silent and birds do not get used to the laser beam.
Developing the ultimate laser beam was accomplished by applying a combination of highly precise optics, filtering and light frequencies. The result is exceptional performance in bird repelling while maintaining safety for both humans and birds.
Using the innovative laser technology in such a way that it is cost effective and prevents the need for persons to climb on the roof has resulted in the development of the Agrilaser Autonomic. This is a fully automated bird repelling system, providing continuous bird repelling capability after one time configuration. The laser can cover an area of 3,000 acres. It is the ultimate solution for bird control on roofs, as is confirmed by many users such as Continental, FloraHolland, Van der Gugten.
The deployment of the Agrilaser Autonomic is very easy. After attaching the laser to the frame, the device needs one time configuration. Within a few hours the system is fully operational and the level of maintenance is low.
