Bird Barrier: Solar Panel Protection
Solar panels are being installed on commercial and residential roofs across America at an ever-increasing rate. These arrays provide perfect harborage for birds, and homeowners are desperate for a solution.
This innovative system is designed specifically to keep all birds from getting under solar arrays, protecting the roof, wiring, and equipment from their damage. This non-penetrating system is fast and easy to install, and can be removed for service.
The wire mesh is supplied in rolls. The preferred technique is to cut it into six-foot lengths and straighten before getting onto the roof. Then, using a 2x4, bend up the bottom inch to about 30 degrees. This kick-out helps to lock the mesh firmly into place
