Defender® Angled Roof Ridge Bird Spikes

The angled ridge spike has a base designed to sit securely on triangular ridge tiles. If you have a half-round curved ridge tile, the Defender® Curved Ridge Spikes is the best option.

The Defender® Ridge Spike is a specifically designed bird deterrent for use on pointed ridge tiles at the top of roofs. Birds such as pigeons and seagulls love to perch on the highest point available to view the best feeding sites and be aware of any potential predators. This makes the ridge tiles of a home the perfect perch.

The base of the roof spike has been shaped into an upside down "V" to fit snugly over the top of triangular ridge tiles. The roof spikes have extra long pins that stop not only birds such as pigeons, but also larger birds like seagulls from landing on roofs. They therefore prevent the birds from fouling and roosting on your home and business. Also available in 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel.

Long Life Expectancy

The thick UV Stabilised base is manufactured from Durolon Polycarbonate plastic, which doesn’t succumb to brittleness or weather degradation. This, in conjunction with the 304 Grade stainless steel pins, ensures that this high-quality seagull roof ridge spike will last for years. For this reason, it comes with a 25-Year “No Rust” Warranty when installed in the UK.

Two Rows of Pins

The Defender® Stainless Steel Ridge Spike has 2 rows of 15 cm (6 inches) long 304 Grade stainless steel pins. They protrude from the UV Stabilised Polycarbonate base of the spike at 2 different angles. This spread of pins acts as a bird deterrent and stops seagulls and birds from landing on the apex of the roof.

Specially Designed Easy Fix Roof Ridge Base

The Defender® Ridge Spike has a triangular base that will give a secure fit onto any apex roof ridge tile. Simply glue the base of the ridge spike with Defender® Fixing Silicone, ensuring both faces of the underside are covered and press firmly down.

The angled base of the roof ridge spike means the bird spike can achieve a good grip with no slippage. However, if your ridge tiles have a curved shape, you can use the Defender® Curved Ridge Spikes instead.

Marine 316 Grade

316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel is now offered as an alternative to 304 Stainless Steel. It is particularly resistant to corrosion caused by sodium chloride. This makes it the ideal choice for use in harsh coastal areas.

Defender® Angled Ridge Spikes - Key Info

Which birds are the ridge spikes suitable for?

  • Seagulls
  • Pigeons

The Defender® Angled Ridge Spikes have longer pins to make them suitable for seagulls as well as pigeons. These seagull deterrent spikes are the perfect way to stop seagulls from being able to access the angled ridge of your roof, this is often a highly sort after location for them as they can look for food and are up high, safe from predators. If you can get rid of pigeons and seagulls from the roof of a property they will often abandon the building altogether.

Where can I use ridge spikes?

  • Apex roof ridge tiles
  • Roofing on sheds, summer houses or greenhouses that come to a point

Defender® Angled Ridge Spikes have 2 rows of stainless steel pins that fan out. With this angle of pins, the bird and seagull ridge deterrent will stop birds from landing on the apex of any roof.

How do ridge spikes stop seagulls landing?

Defender® Angled Ridge Spikes pins make landing uncomfortable for seagulls and other birds, without injuring them. This makes them move on to other more accessible areas. The pins themselves are extra long so cater not only for pigeons and other similar-sized birds, but also for the seagulls which have longer legs. All Defender® Stainless Steel Bird Control Products are humane and recommended by the RSPB.

How to install Defender® Ridge Spikes

Defender® Ridge Spikes - Photographic Installation Guide

Although the installation of our Defender® Roof Spikes is easy, as you simply apply fixing silicone to the base and pressing down into position, the nature of the product means that access can be difficult. If you are at all worried about using ladders or gaining access to high areas like the roof, we would really recommend talking to a professional pest controller or property maintenance company.

Step 1 - Clean the Area: Before starting your Defender® Ridge Spikes installation you need to make sure that the apex ridge tiles are clean and free from moss, lichen, bird droppings and any dust or debris. This is to make sure that the silicone has a clean surface to adhere to.

If soiled with droppings, we would always recommend dampening down the area with a disinfectant spray like Germ Clear™ Bird Droppings Disinfectant Spray. Once this has been left to soak into the droppings, you can use a scraper, stiff brush, warm soapy water and a cloth to make sure the roof apex is clean and dry. Ideally leave the area for 24 hours to ensure it is fully dry.

If a seagull has already been using the area it may be heavily soiled with seagull droppings. If this is the case please see our "How to safely clean bird droppings guide" guide for more in-depth cleaning advice.

Step 2 - Silicone: To affix the Defender® Ridge Spikes to a roof ridge you will need to use Defender® Pigeon Spike Fixing Silicone. This adhesive is formulated to create an extra strong bond with the polycarbonate base of our seagull roof ridge spikes. You will need a caulking gun (not provided) to use the silicone we sell. Use the caulking gun to squeeze a bead of silicone about 8 mm wide along both undersides of the triangular base. Always check the suitability of surfaces for use with Defender® Silicone. For more information, please visit the product page Defender® Fixing Silicone Adhesive Glue. If you do not have a caulking gun, we have them available to purchase and we also have a handy guide on How to use a Caulking gun if you haven't used one before.

Step 3 - Positioning: Once the base is glued, simply push the Defender® Ridge Spikes in to position along the ridge. Repeat the steps until the row is complete. A hacksaw can be used to shorten strips if a smaller piece is needed to finish the run. Do not leave any gaps, if a seagull has access to even a small area they can then push past the pins and even drop nesting debris on to the spikes.

Step 4 – Raised Sections: Seagulls are very strong and can be very possessive of their chosen nesting or roosting sites, the will often return to the same place year after year. Look at the roof as a whole – for example, you may also need to use Defender® Seagull Spikes along the chimney breast stack. In most instances though, if you can rid birds from the ridge of a roof, often they will abandon the property all together.
