Bird Barrier America announces a new product to help professionals solve bird issues under solar panels. Solar Stixx represents a different approach to solar panel exclusion. Rather than install clips first, then long rolls of mesh, Stixx is a ready-to-install unit. The system consists of two parts:

  • The ultraviolet light (UV)-stabilized plastic upper unit is fastened to the frame of the solar panel.
  • The polished stainless-steel falling pins slide effortlessly up and down within the plastic housing to perfectly meet flat or irregular shaped roofs, like Spanish tile.

The Stixx can be installed three different ways:

  • Screwing into the frame with self-tapping screws through holes in the product
  • Gluing with Bird Barrier Bond
  • Securing with 3M double-sided tape

While the self-tapping screws are considered to be the best mechanical method, there may be issues with warranties on the panels. In addition, screws placed incorrectly may also cause problems with performance or warranties.

Specifications

  • Stixx units are 19.7 inches in total length (80 parts per box, 131 feet)
  • The space between the rods is 0.5 inch.
  • Max opening protected is 6.5 inches.
  • Minimum opening protected is 3.25 inches.
  • The plastic unit can be snapped along break-lines at every wire.
