The Swift Brick has been developed to provide a safe, spacious and habitable area to allow swifts to nest within the well built construction of modern houses.
As modern building practices have greatly improved the quality of new homes in the UK, some have actually suffered from the advances in building regulation. Bird species such as swifts have occupied the cracks and crevices in our buildings for thousands of years, but the improved standard and style of modern construction has put their survival in our towns and cities at risk.
These popular birds come to the UK for three months during the summer to raise their young and can be seen on warm evenings giving spectacular displays. They eat large quantities of insect pests and spiders. They prefer nesting in small groups but the population has been dwindling for many years as suitable nest sites have become scarcer.
The revolutionary LignoLoc® wooden nails are made from indigenous beech wood and boast a tensile strength similar to aluminium nails.Their mechanical properties allow the nails to be driven into solid structural timber with the FASCO LignoLoc®pneumatic nailer, without any pre-drilling, to form an inseparable bond with the timber.
LignoLoc® wooden nails can be used in various ways in the production of multilayer solid wooden boards. Depending on the manufacturing process, they are used for fixing the layers temporarily or as a replacement for aluminium nails and wooden dowels, or else they give rise to completely new processing methods. This means time-related advantages and ecological benefits for the industry.
