|Bird Jolt Receives Two New Patents
The United States Patent office has recently awarded two new patents to Bird-B-Gone on the Bird Jolt Flat Track bird deterrent system. The two new patents were awarded for the systems’ glue troughs; US 8015747 & US 8020340.
MISSION VIEJO, Calif. — The Bird Jolt Flat Track bird deterrent system features a patented anti-arcing and glue trough design that is safe and effective against all species of birds, according to manufacturer Bird-B-Gone.
The glue troughs along the base of the Bird Jolt system raise and insulate the threads that secure the conductors, preventing water from creating a conductive channel underneath the track by wicking up the threads and shorting out the track, a common problem among electrified track systems, according to manufacturer Bird-B-Gone. The glue troughs also provide better adhesion.
Bird Jolt’s low-profile design makes it well suited for use in areas where aesthetics are a concern. Available in four colors – grey, stone, black and terracotta – it comes in 100-foot rolls and can be installed easily on curved or straight surfaces. Measuring only ¼-inch at its highest point, the Bird Jolt system can be used in a wide variety of locations including ledges, rooflines, signs, I-beams, parapet walls and eaves.
