A High-Profile High-Rise Is No Longer Burdened by Birds

September 16, 2012

The concentration of skyscrapers in this downtown district creates a wind tunnel favored by soaring birds during their migration south for the winter. The unique pyramid structure atop this high-rise offered an abundance of surfaces where hundreds of turkey vultures had taken up residence. Bird Barrier’s Bird-Shock Flex-Track drove the birds away.

The building manager found that it was hard to miss the gathering of large birds on the building. Their presence was not only unsightly; it was becoming a maintenance problem. Feathers accumulated in the air intake system and clogged drains on the roof. He estimated that they were spending between $5,000 and $8,000 each year to clean the droppings and debris left by the birds.

Several methods of bird control had been proposed in the past. Management decided that a wire shock system would be too costly to maintain. While water cannons would disperse the birds, the use of unpurified water causes cloudy windows below.

It was determined that Bird-Shock Flex-Track was the best solution. Because it is low profile and cannot be seen from below, Flex-Track was ideal for this iconic building. Because solar chargers can be used to power the system, it puts limited stress on the environment.

As the installation progressed, the bird control installer observed the changing behavior of the birds. After landing on the track, birds moved to the yet-unprotected ledges, while some would approach the track again only to change direction mid-flight and depart altogether.

With the money saved on maintenance, the building manager determined that the Flex-Track system would pay for itself. In fact, he was so pleased with the outcome that he allows the installer to bring prospective customers on-site to demonstrate the system.
