Bird blaster

March 1, 2009





Plant, warehouse and loading dock operators can keep birds away with the Super Quad-Blaster with Strobe, an ultrasonic sound paired with a flashing strobe that birds hate, but is inaudible to humans. Four Piezo ceramic speakers project ultrasonic waves in an overlapping fan pattern for 360 degree coverage at a frequency level that irritates birds. The speakers feature adjustable sequencing, frequency and warble rate, making it difficult for birds to acclimate. The Super Quad-Blaster uses less energy than a 10-watt light bulb and plugs into a 110 vAC outlet (220 vAC unit available). The unit has no moving parts, can be mounted in any direction and covers 6,500 square feet.
