Meet the ecological requirements of UK bat conservation laws with this 5 piece set of Bat Tiles from heritage roofing specialists, Dreadnought Tiles.
Dreadnaught Tiles are one of the UK's leading manufacturers of naturally coloured, clay roof tiles. Their bat tiles are fired using traditional techniques developed in the 19th century. Crafted with bat conservation in mind, these tiles can provide either a roosting niche or access to the loft. A clay cowl over the aperture deflects rainfall.
Designed to match flat clay tiles in a wide range of colours, these tile sets can be used in two ways. With the roof membrane left intact, the tiles form a cosy niche for crevice dwelling bats like pipistrelles. A careful cut in the membrane will allow pipistrelles and other bats to roost in the roof space. Species like Natterer’s bat, serotines, Leslier’s and barbastelles will require access to the roof space. Expert advice will be needed before beginning work, as it’s now a criminal offence to disturb, kill or injure bats in the UK.
This versatile, bat conservation solution is easy to fit using the 5 interlocking tiles provided. Further advice on bats and buildings is available on the Bat Conservation Trust helpline – phone 0345 1300 228.
