This is a specially designed fitting to enable you to fit spikes to V-shaped ridge tiles

  • Will fit snugly to any ridge tile courtesy of its V-shaped base and can be installed in minutes by using clear silicone adhesive.
  • (Only use the Defender Ridge Spike™ if your ridge tile is peaked (upside down V shaped). If your roof has a half round ridge tile and has approx. 3cm surface to fix to, use the Defender Wide™ Stainless Steel Spikes, or the Defender Gull spike – there is usually  sufficient room on the half round ridge tile to fix this spike).
  • Clear polycarbonate plastic base means  the spikes become virtually invisible once installed.

Description

DEFENDER RIDGE TILE SPIKE

All wild birds will choose the highest point of a property to perch, either for the purpose of protecting a territory, as a vantage point to exploit a food source or simply as a predator-free perching place. So often the ridge tiles or ridge capping are favourite spots.

The Defender Ridge Spike™ is a cheap, easy and effective method of protecting the ridge tiles of any roof.

The product will fit snugly to any ridge tile courtesy of its V-shaped base and can be installed in minutes by using clear silicone adhesive.

Defender Ridge Spikes are available in a clear colour in order to blend in with virtually any coloured roof tile.

This product requires more silicone to install than the normal range of Defender Pigeon Spikes. We recommend that you use 1 tube of silicone per 10 strips.

PLEASE NOTE :  If your roof has a half round ridge tile use the Defender Wide™ Stainless Steel Spikes, there is usually sufficient room to fix this spike. However if there is less than 3cm surface to fix this, order the ridge tile. (feel free to send us a photo via WhatsApp (089 479 5330)  or email if you would like an opinion on this)

So for this type of ridge you will need the ridge tile spike:

 

 

 

Ridge Spike 3 - No Birds Here!

Whereas for this, the wide steel should be fine (needs c. 3cm surface to fix base)

Installation

To install:
This product requires more silicone to install than the normal range of Defender Pigeon Spikes. We recommend that you use 1 tube of silicone per 10 strips (3.3 metres).
Squeeze pigeon spike fixing silicone generously onto the base of the spike, about the size of your finger (10mm). Ensure the silicone is applied to both the inside angles of the Defender Ridge Spike™.
Stick the first row of ridge spikes as close as possible to the end of the ridge tiles, so the end is fully protected. Press down firmly to ensure full adhesion.
Every effort should be made to spike the full length of the ridge tiles. Using a hacksaw, cut the Defender Ridge Spikes™ into the correct size to finish off the run.
Try not to damage the spikes during installation as a slightly damaged ridge spike is likely to provide an ideal roosting or nesting spot for a pigeon or gull. Any damaged ridge spikes should be replaced before the birds move in.
