: Surface disinfectant and bactericide designed to neutralize bird waste, making it safe for removal. Steri-Fab quickly kills disease causing bacteria, parasites, fungi, insects, etc. This is a non-residual product. It becomes completely inert after it dries. Do not use with Microcide-SQ on the same surface at the same time.
A broad spectrum disinfectant, cleaner and deodorizer used to sanitize hard surfaces as well as fabrics and clothing. Use to kill a wide spectrum of organisms and disease-causing bacteria. Do not use with Steri-Fab on the same surface at the same time.
Anti-microbial personal protection products to help prevent disease transmittal before, during and after working on and around surfaces contaminated with bird and animal wastes. Use to compliment personal protection equipment standards (PPE).
D. Safety Equipment:
Nixalite offers personal protection equipment (PPE) to protect personnel from the hazards related to pest bird and animal waste materials.
PART 3 - EXECUTION
3.1 - INSPECTION
Visually inspect all installation surfaces. Make sure all surfaces are clean, dry and free from debris or other conditions that could impede the workflow of this section.
Notify architect of detrimental conditions. Do not proceed until these conditions have been corrected.
3.2 - PREPARATION
A. Field Measurements:
Verify the dimensions for each surface specified for E-Spike Economy Bird Spike installation. Use manufacturers Planning Guides and Estimate Worksheets to verify that enough bird spike strips will be installed on EACH surface specified for bird control.
Make sure all installation surface finishing requirements have been accomplished before installing E-Spike Bird Spike Models. They are to be the last items installed on each specified surface. DO NOT apply any surface coating or treatment (paint, sealer, etc.) over the installed E-Spike Bird Spike Models or mounting systems.
Remove or relocate all plants, foliage or foreign objects that overhang the installation surfaces. Note all conditions that could adversely affect the installation and performance of the E-Spike Economy Bird Spike installation.
3.3 – SURFACE CLEANING
All surfaces to be clean, dry and free of obstructions before the E-Spike Economy Bird Spikes are installed.
B. If Bird Waste Is Present:
Treat, neutralize and safely remove all bird waste from installation surfaces. Installer must follow all municipal, state and federal regulations regarding the proper removal and disposal of bird droppings and waste materials such as nests and dead birds.
Use Nixalite’s surface cleaning products to neutralize any bird droppings, nests and related waste materials that may be present. Allow all surfaces to air dry completely, and then reapply to sanitize and deodorize the surface before proceeding. Strictly follow treatment instructions provided with Nixalite’s surface cleaning products.
Use Nixalite anti-microbial and anti-bacterial personal protection products to help prevent disease transmittal when working around surfaces contaminated with bird droppings.
3.4 - INSTALLATION
Make sure the installation surfaces are clean, dry and free of any debris or obstructions.
Install specified E-Spike All Stainless-Steel Economy Bird Spike Models in strict accordance with manufacturer’s E-Spike strip spacing and installation guidelines. Protect all surfaces where pest birds can land, roost and nest.
Install Nixalite’s E-Spike bird spike strips so they will protect the entire surface, not just the outside edges. No gaps are allowed in the bird spike strip coverage. Cut the bird spike strips where necessary to fit the surface properly.
Wires of E-Spike Bird Spike Models must overhang or be flush to the outside edges of each surface. The E-Spike base strip must extend over the ends of each surface by at least 1/2” (1.2 cm).
Fasten E-Spike Models to the surface with the optional Nixalite Bird Spike mounting hardware as recommended by the manufacturer. Follow the hardware spacing guidelines and installation procedures supplied by manufacturer.
F. E-Spike Full Row Model:
For pigeons and seagulls on all types of surfaces. Not for small birds or for the prevention of heavy infestations of any bird.
G. E-Spike Half Row Model:
For flat, single exposed surfaces less than 3” in depth (7.6 cm) or in conjunction with the E-Spike Full Row Model on specific surface widths to achieve proper surface coverage. For pigeons and seagulls only – not for small birds or for the prevention of heavy infestations of any bird.
3.5 – ADJUSTMENTS / CLEANING
Remove debris and waste materials from project site. Inspect finished installation. Make any adjustments needed to conform to Nixalite’s E-Spike Bird Spike spacing and installation guidelines.
Nixalite’s E-Spike All Stainless-Steel Economy Bird Spikes are a physical and passive barrier. They rely on the system of pointed stainless steel wires to deter pest birds and nuisance animals from getting to the surfaces on which they are installed. Periodic inspections are recommended to keep the bird spike strips in good condition.
Occasionally, debris may fall onto the wires or birds may drop materials into the wires in an attempt to build a nest. If this happens, begin a monthly inspection of the system to remove any debris and to check the condition of the installed bird spike strips.
