Model Number: SWIFTPAINT1
Our newest recycled plastic swift box is made from premium recycled plastic PVC. It is made to the same dimensions as our Cambourne Swift box and features the same specially designed starling proof entrance (see below).
The novel thing about this material is that unlike most recycled plastic products it can be painted. This means that it can match existing colour schemes and the boxes can blend into the background, like the bespoke nest boxes we made for Premier Inn. Painting the boxes has the additional benefit of increasing the life expectancy of the material from at least ten years to more than twenty years.
Of course we have designed these boxes to be stylish and smart in their own right, and they are now completely white so unlike our other nest boxes they do not have the black edges which tend to stand out.
The white surface of the box not only makes it more attractive, it also helps to regulate the temperature inside the nestbox. The design is based on one approved by Swift Conservation, and allows the inside to be easily inspected and cleaned out.
The specially designed entrance hole is based on the design used on Purple Martin Boxes in the US, is regarded as the most starling proof entrance hole available and is recommended by Swift Conservation (see here for more details).
This product is made upagainst order with a lead time 7 - 10 days.
