Avian Averting System®
Is AFI's Electric Barrier America's best bird proofing and bird deterrent solution?
Yes, our Avian Averting System is scalable to almost any application, and it is is dollar for dollar the most effective and efficient bird control system available. It is more effective, costs less, lasts longer, and looks better. It is the culmination of over 20 years experience specializing in guaranteed bird deterrent installations. We are bird deterrent and control specialists, installing and guaranteeing our system all over North America. With this knowledge, AFI uniquely knows what will work and what will last in every US environment and climate.
Is The Electric Barrier System Ecologically Sound?
Yes. The System does not use any chemicals or mechanical flight obstructions which might harm or kill the problem birds. We bird proof your building safely and harmlessly.
How effective is the System?
Turn it on Thursday - no birds on Friday! Pigeon relocation results are guaranteed as long as system is operating. Our bird control system is clearly the most effective permanent bird deterrent available.
Is the Avian Averting bird proofing system invisible?
Some installations cannot be seen, even when you know it is there. Our systems are custom designed to be invisible at a short distance, and are thus virtually invisible. The electric barrier bird deterrent system is 99% air insulated and the fastening insulators are clear taking on the look of the environment. Our bird removal systems are completely effective and designed to be virtually invisible.
How will it look on my building, will I have wires all over it?
No. When birds are on a building, they're there for a reason, to nest and roost. Treating the reason solves the problem. Often, only a single deterrent line per nesting surface is required. The deterrent lines are small and run through the air and in most cases out of sight. Power units are sealed and neutral color. No nets, meshes, or covers are required; however, when requested our Invisi-Barrier hybrid installations are designed to be virtually invisible like the virtually invisible electric barrier.
Can I install it myself?
As important as having the hardware used to construct a bird control system is the knowledge of how to do it. Birds follow certain behavior patterns when landing on a prospective roosting or nesting site. This knowledge is used to best position a minimal number of bird deterrent lines, or to establish a proper punishment regime so that maximum cost effectiveness is achieved. We have many years of experience designing and installing our bird control systems across North America.
How much does it cost?
Every system for a specific building is custom designed and installed for that specific building, which results in a variable per linear foot price. AFI designs, installs and guarantees each system. Customers are not asked to write a check until the results of the system are exactly as told to the customer.
How can you say the electrical barrier is engineered for efficiency?
Experience adds up over the years. After 15 years installing and guaranteeing polycarbonate air insulated systems and flexible vinyl strip based systems, we have an extensive knowledge base. We can easily say our stainless steel (wire, screws, springs, and washers) and UV protected polycarbonate air insulated electrical barrier components can last up to 25 years or longer. Such applies when instituting AFI's unique proprietary knowledge, installation expertise, materials, and recent designs. Man caused damage may decrease results.
We have studied many types of installations in all types of environments. We understand that vinyl and pvc based track systems or horizontal tape systems will overtime only be economical in both full shade and out of the weather or for temporary uses. This is because of UV problems and low resistance arc burn associated with horizontal lying plastic, pvc, and vinyl. Sun, rain, UV light, pollution, oxidation residues, reduction residues, roof sediments, conducting residues, puddling, cold, and heat renders vinyl/pvc porous and arc burn prone while adhesives must be maintained regularly. In contrast, the AFI electric barrier is engineered to eliminate all of those inefficiencies.
AFI may be the only bird control company with the experience and proprietary know how to bird proof your building permanently. Yes, our air insulated polycarbonate and stainless steel system is engineered for efficiency and durability in all climates. It is more effective, costs less, looks better, and lasts longer-up to 25 years or more in many applications.
What about the Rooftop Grid and Invisi-Barrier bird exclusion systems?
Just like our electric barrier systems, the rooftop grid and exclusion barrier systems are custom designed and professionally installed. Avian Flyaway bird control systems achieve the most effective and efficient results attainable for our customers. We know what works and when and where to use it for the best long-term and permanent results.
