Designed to be any size (up to 18ft wide) the Aviary is constructed from 1220 x 2150mm (4ft x 7ft) panels with a 600mm (2ft) door panel and matching blank panel, ensuring layouts of multiples of 2ft are possible to both width and length to suit your requirements.
Unlike most limited life structures these Panels are of sandwich construction with the mesh/netting firmly stapled and gripped between two layers of 19 x 35mm pressure treated timbers. Each panel has two cross bearers and a diagonal brace, together with corner bracing of: Upper; 150mm triangles of treated 9mm WPB plywood, and Lower; 25 x 150mm treated timber bargeboard, all to ensure that each panel remains “square” even when reassembled several times. All come drilled for, and including 80mm and 100mm x M6 galvanised bolts, nuts and washers, and galvanised door ironmongery (hinges and bolt).
Each pair of wall panels come with a similarly constructed flat roof panel (to a maximum pen width of 10ft), having the addition of an external 25 x 50mm treated timber edging strip/drip to aid locating during assembly and deflect rain from the structure. Over 10ft wide an “A-frame” roof will be required; formed of two panels with a triangular end truss panel.
All timber fixings are zinc and yellow passivated steel to EN10083-2 to avoid rusting. Timbers are FSC approved (ethical and sustainable) pressure treated and cladding of galvanised
8ft x 6ft dove breeding pen constructed around a dovecote.
wire netting or galvanised wire mesh may be used depending on the required application:
20 gauge wire netting or wire mesh (lightweight) are ideal for chicken pens where as a 15 gauge wire mesh will be required if there is a need to be fox proof. Additionally; galvanised finish or green coated wire netting/mesh are available.
