In a world where rural areas and countryside are dwindling and built-up towns and cities are forever expanding, it is essential that we incorporate wildlife-friendly features into our infrastructures. With the help of ACO’s wildlife range we can do just that!
ACO have a huge range of products that encourage the protection and enhancement of wildlife, we’re going to talk through just a few of them here, or head to their website for more information. Each of these products can be ordered via your local Sydenhams branch, pop into store and have a chat one of our staff members, they’ll be happy to help you make your project creature cautious.
The trouble small animals have in town and cities is finding the perfect place to call home!
Creating habitats inside structural components of your home or project is an efficient and considerate way to help out your local wildlife.
ACO’s habitat and refuges include…
Five different opening sized shelters, preventing predator access for different types of animals:
The Guide Walls can be produced in a variety of lengths and feature:
ACO’s Polymer Concrete Climate Tunnel system allows small animals to cross roads safely.
Can be installed flush with or below road surface, some of it’s features and benefits include:
Their Wildlife Polymer Concrete Kerb allows animals to bypass gully grating as amphibians will follow the recess in the front of the kerb and therefore won’t fall through the gully grating. Ssssseriously handy for snakes and small newts and lizards alike!
Features and benefits of this clever kerb include:
Plus, ACO have just introduced a new Gully Ladder which helps amphibians, reptiles and other small creatures to escape from drainage gullies. Paired perfectly with the ACO Guide Wall, or ACO Wildlife Kerb systems, species can be navigated away from gullies and roads safely!
Frogs, lizards and snakes, will be climbing to safety in no time!
