Electric bird repellent
A bird receives a small electric shock when it lands on the roof section of the boat canopy. An electric shock quite effectively prevents birds from remaining on top of the boat canopy. Consequently, the problems caused by bird droppings are considerably reduced. The electric shock the bird receives is not harmful. VA-Lokki is designed for operation in a boat and is easy to use.
An electric circuit that conducts electricity from a wire is sewn to the boat canopy roof section, and an electric fence unit which provides the required electrical impulse for the circuit is installed in the boat. The unit uses, as an electrical source, the boat’s own battery or separate batteries. With a decline in the charge level of the battery, the device turns the current off so that the battery is prevented from total depletion. If separate batteries are used, they are sufficient for about a month of use.
VA-Lokki is a patented product that can be installed in connection with replacing the canopy with a new one. The product is always designed specifically with the boat canopy in mind. The sewn-in electric circuit is waterproof, and in order to ensure watertight operation the canopy roof should be impregnated with an agent delivered with the product.
