Squirrel under solar panels

Solar Panel Squirrels Proofing UK Wide 

 Are Squirrels nesting under your solar panels? 

Squirrels by their very nature gnaw. In fact they have to, to keep their incisors at a manageable level. 
They are certainly not a pest that you want taking up residence under your solar array. Squirrels will often chew through electrical cables in lofts and can cause lots of damage. The cost of repairing and replacing damaged wiring and the lost revenue would be extremely expensive and could far outweigh the cost of having you solar panels squirrel proofed. 
 
ApcUK has developed a system using galvanised welded wire mesh, galvanised metal clips and galvanised wire. Using this system we have achieved 100% success rate with keeping the squirrels out! Using this system does not affect your warranty, as we do not drill into any part of the array. Our solar panel proofing experts are happy to talk to the company that installed your panels, for your peace of mind.

Once squirrels have decided they want to live under your solar array they will build a drey to raise their young.  
Dreys are larger than a pigeons nest and more likely to be a fire hazard due to dry finer nesting materials used to line the drey. 
 
When protecting your solar panels from squirrels we use an upgrade mesh which is stronger and of a thicker gauge. 
The aperture size naturally has to be slightly larger however at 13x13mm this also prevents pigeons and other Bird's from gaining access to the underside of the solar panels.  
 

 Stop squirrels going under your solar panel array 

Squirrels will build their dreys right up against the wires and incorporate them into the nesting materials putting the wires at further risk of being gnawed on.

The ApcUK Solar Panel Proofing Process 
 
Gutter: 
The gutter is cleaned as part of the works. 
 
Under Solar Panels: 
All squirrels, dreys and debris are removed from under the solar panels. 
 
Proofing to stop squirrels going under the solar panel array: 
Using the system developed by ApcUK. Galvanised metal clips are installed to the lower lip of the panel. This process is carried out on every outer panel within the array. 
Galvanised welded wire mesh is then cut to size, galvanised wire is then used to attach the mesh to the clips, creating a physical barrier to stop the squirrels going back under the solar panels.
