Specification

How Does It Work?

All birds are naturally afraid of coming near birds of prey. Birds of prey are “Raptors” meaning that they kill with their talons. In order to do so a bird of prey must be above its target so that it can dive upon it and seize it in its talons. The natural in-built self preservation reaction for pest birds is for them to stay above it and away from it.

When Hawk Kite is flying it will weave, dive and hover around and above its pole up to 13m from the ground. This creates a life-like, credible threat to pest birds, whom will immediately vacate the area and not come underneath the kite for fear of being attacked by an apex predator

The pest birds will not habituate to the kite’s presence due to the fact that it is always moving and changing height and position.

The original and still the best, the Hawk Kite Kit is by far the toughest and strongest kite on the market

The kite is reinforced and stitched at all the wear points making it extraordinarily tough. Using carbon fibre struts – it is extremely strong, light and flexible, the kite self-launches, flying in the lightest breeze.

The full kit consists of:

  • Hawk kite
  • Telescopic pole with rubber caps at each end
  • Synthetic heavy duty ground post
  • 2-part 8-plaite 2mm Braided Cord with swivel
  • Securing line for anchoring during heavy winds
  • Comprehensive instructions

A full range of spares is available should your kite become damaged

Usage

For detailed instructions on how to install the Hawk Kite and its associated mounting systems, please download the Installation Guide (see documents).

The hawk kite can be used to protect many problem areas including:

  • Golf Courses
  • Marinas
  • Vineyards
  • Fish lakes
  • Allotments
  • Playing fields
  • Industrial roofs
  • Car sales lots
  • Brassicas
  • Cover crops
  • Grass seeds
  • Any large open space requiring protection from pest birds

Hawk Kite requires open space of at least 100 square metres (10m X 10m) without obstructions such as plant, equipment, hand rails etc otherwise it will catch on obstructions in high winds and become tangled or damaged.

Hawk kite should be installed in a suitable location in clear view of the infested area and preferably at the highest point on the area to be protected, for maximum effect.

When locating Hawk Kite consideration should be given to quick and easy access to tie-off Hawk Kite in strong winds

Whilst Hawk Kite will endure winds of up to Force 5-6, if correctly installed, the system should be tied off if stronger winds are forecast to prevent damage or loss of the kite

A full range of spares is available should your kite become damaged

 

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR INSTALLERS Hawk Kite should be installed with its telescopic pole set 5-10 degrees off vertical, pointing away from the prevailing wind, such that when wind is not present the Kite will hang away from the pole and prevent it wrapping around the pole and tangling. This will ensure optimum performance and effectiveness.

Pay particular attention to any overhead cables and position the kite well away from any overhead obstructions.

Hawk Kite must be inspected daily for any damage or signs of tangling of the tether line around the pole or foreign objects and corrective action taken immediately. Care must be taken to select an optimal position above the pest birds for Hawk Kite to operate, but in a safe position that enables regular access for maintenance.
