Bird Wires in the UK
Pigeon deterrent wires are a less aggressive-looking method of preventing pigeons from attempting to perch on narrow building features such as window cills and stone or brick ledges. They work by preventing pigeons from looking over ledges into potential feeding sites as well as discouraging them from settling or landing.
Nylon-coated wires are secured and tensioned between 100mm or 130mm tall stainless steel posts set at up to 1.3 metre centres and fixed into stone or brick using a 25mm nylon anchor plug. Pigeon wires are usually arrayed in two or three parallel rows to make it difficult for any bird to land and move around freely.
The supporting posts can also be powder-coated and welded to brackets for use on more fragile surfaces or where it is important to maintain a weather seal and coordinate colours – such as on cladding panels or lead flashing.
When installed correctly, the wires are a discreet and effective deterrent against most pigeons.
