Solar Panel Guard Kit

Solar Panel Guard Kit will protect your solar panels from potential damage from rodents, birds and debris.  A PVC coated wire mesh installed around the perimeter of the solar panels will prevent damage to wiring, corrosion to your roof and stop animals including birds and rodents living under your solar panels. Backed with a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty against faulty or defective parts. Sadly warranty will not cover incorrect installation.

Our Solar Panel Guard Kit securely protects your solar panels without damaging or voiding panel warranty.

Features a new smaller locking nut for a more discreet installation.

Solar Panel Bird Mesh Kit Contains:

  • 1 x 10m or 1 x 30m roll galvanised & UV PVC coated wire mesh – depending on the size you choose.
  • 35 x fasteners for the 10m roll or 100 x Fasteners for the 30m roll
  • 2 protective gloves to assist with installation.
  • Installation tip sheet

If you have a problem with birds, rodents and debris such as leaves and twigs getting under your solar panels, then this product is for you. Exposed wiring underneath solar panels can be damaged through rodents chewing through them. Excessive debris or nesting material can restrict airflow around your panels greatly reducing the effectiveness.

The best solution for the above-stated problems is our Solar Panel Guard Kits or skirts.

Solar Panel Guard Kits or solar panel skirts as commonly described in Australia provides a low-cost solution for protecting your solar panel investment. Our Solar Panel Guard Kit is made from galvanized and UV PVC coated welded wire mesh and using UV stable nylon fasteners designed to last in our harsh Australia climate.

Anyone can install our solar panel mesh kits, however, always take care if the roof is up high or on a dangerous angle.

We also have one of Australia’s largest range of bird spikes for protecting your property.

Solar Panel Mesh Kit Installation Guide

Tools required: Gloves (provided in 30m pack only) metal snips and pliers.

  1. Place provided clips with every 30-40cm along the underneath of the solar panel frame and pull tight.
  2. Roll out the solar panel mesh and cut into manageable 2metre lengths for easier handling. Position the mesh in place, making sure the fastening rod points upwards so it keeps a downward pressure on the mesh to create a firm barrier to the roof. Allow the bottom to flare out and curve along the roof, this will ensure rodents and birds cannot access under the mesh.
  3. Attach the fastening washer and push firmly to the end to tightly secure the mesh.
  4. When joining the next section of mesh, overlay approximately 10cm and join the 2 pieces with cable ties to create a complete barrier.
  5. For outer corners; cut upwards from the bottom until the bend point. Cut a section of mesh to cover any gaps using cable ties to fix the corner piece in place.
  6. For inner corners: cut the mesh upwards from the bottom until the bend point, secure any overlay sections together using cable ties.

    The product arrived promptly and my Pesticide annual termite inspection was due so Terminix, Murray Bridge, fitted it. They had used the product before and apparently the on-line price was considerably less than they could buy from their supplier. I will not find out the success of this product until next Spring because the pigeons stopped trying to fight my grandson’s nerf gun persuasion to leave attacks a fortnight before fitting. But I am sure he will be pleased to have his toy back!

    Our neighbours have pigeons on their roof ALL the time, when we got our solar they started migrating, even found a few eggs under one of the panels. Put this on and added some holographic tape to the tv arial and they haven’t been back. Still 10-20 on the next door neighbours roof everyday though! So so happy

    Good product to guard esp pigeons from nesting under the panels. Solar companies should strongly suggest to customers about its advantage.

    Extremely easy to install and good quality product for a good final result. Unfortunately, price is way too high for what it is
