The Perfectly Imperfect BatBlock is a less than perfect version of our beautiful BatBlock, designed to create roosting space for bats within the framework of new builds, or to be retrofitted within existing properties. A simple, stylish way to help protect our Bat species and provide hibernation or maternity roosting space for them.
We ask a lot of the materials we use and sometimes products are less than perfect, though they still do exactly what they need for the species they are designed for. Perfectly Imperfect BatBlocks may have chips on the edges, more air bubbles than normal and not be finished to our usual high standards, but they can still be built into a building to create vital roosting space.
The perfectly imperfect Bat Block features an internal FSC certified wooden panel, a small entrance space to deter larger birds and predators, a knock out which means you can turn several Bat Blocks into a colony and is standard UK block size.
The Perfectly Imperfect BatBlock is designed and made by Green&Blue in the UK.
Imperfections vary but will not affect the performance of your BatBlock
Made from cast concrete using up to 75% waste materials from the Cornish China Clay industry.
215mm x 440mm x 160mm
Approx 15 kg (unpackaged)
The Bat Block should be positioned at least 4m from ground level, in proximity to vegetation and linear features like hedgerow which bats rely on for navigation and food.
South or West facing will provide summer maternity roosts and north facing will provide winter hibernation roosts.
Build into course work using mortar mix as main build components in place of a standard brick or block. Can also be wall-mounted. The Bat Block can be turned into a colony by knocking out the section on the side and installing Bat Blocks next to each other.
Bats and their homes are protected by law so it is important not to disturb them. The Bat Block does not require maintenance as the design allows droppings to fall from the entrance.
