Long Life Expectancy

The Pigeon Plex has a base manufactured from Durolon, a UV Stabilised Polycarbonate material which does not become brittle or discolour over time. There are 30 stainless steel pins made from premium 304 Grade stainless steel inserted into the base at 6 different angles. This grade of stainless steel is guaranteed not to rust and therefore comes with a UK 25-Year “No Rust” Warranty.

Silicone Fixing Holes

The Defender® Pigeon Plex Spike has 10 cross-shaped holes in the base. Defender® Pigeon Spike Fixing Silicone is applied to the underside of the base and the base is then pressed firmly onto the ledge. The glue will exude through the holes and form cross-shaped rivets that lock the stainless steel pigeon spike into place.

Snappable Sections

Along the underside of the base there are 4 grooves, which can be snapped by hand to create 5 shorter lengths. Each length measures 6.5 cm, which means smaller ledges and uneven surfaces can be securely protected from persistent pigeons and birds.

Marine 316 Grade

We now offer the Defender®Plex in Marine 316 Grade stainless steel. This is called Marine Grade as the added Molybdenum makes this steel very resistant to sodium chloride. It is therefore particularly suitable for exposed coastal areas.

Defender® Pigeon Plex Extra Wide Steel Bird Spikes - Key Info

Which birds are the Pigeon Plex spikes suitable for?

  • Pigeons

The Defender® Extra Wide Steel Spike is also known as the Pigeon Plex - a tough, heavy-duty spike suitable for the heaviest pigeon infestations. The Pigeon Plex spike has a very dense pattern of protruding pins which prevent pigeons from being able to land on the area protected.

Where can I use extra wide steel bird spikes?

This spike will protect your home and business from the heaviest infestation of pigeons and birds. They will easily defend deep ledges of up to 22.5 cm (9 inches) from birds and pigeons trying to roost. If the ledge is over 22.5 cm, another row of stainless steel pigeon spikes can be added to completely protect the area.

How do extra wide spikes stop pigeons?

PiCAS recommends the Defender® Extra Wide Pigeon Control Spike as a very humane way of deterring birds. The blunt 304 Grade stainless steel pins fan out at 6 different angles to prevent pigeons from approaching the ledge. These protruding pins do not touch the bird or harm it, the pigeon deterrent spikes simply stop the birds from landing, and they will move on safely without injury.

How to install Defender® Extra Wide Spikes

Defender® Extra Wide Pigeon Plex Spike Photographic Installation Guide

We would always recommend installing the Defender® Pigeon Plex Extra Wide Stainless Steel using our own brand Defender® Silicone. This method has been tried and tested and offers the quickest and easiest install. In some circumstances, you can also use nails or screws for this bird spike.

Step 1 - Clean the Area: It is essential to thoroughly clean and dry the area before starting any installation. Scrape, brush and wipe down any bird droppings, dust, or debris. If the area is heavily soiled, you should dampen down the area with a disinfectant like Germ Clear™ Bird Droppings Disinfectant Spray first. This helps prevent breathing in any harmful bacteria in the dust and softens the loose droppings and debris, making it easier to scrape off. The area can then be washed down with warm soapy water and allowed to dry for at least 24 hours. For a more in-depth guide on how to clean safely, please see our "How to safely clean bird droppings guide"

Step 2 - Fixing Methods: For the Defender® Extra Wide Pigeon Plex, using fixing adhesive is recommended for most installations. Using fixing silicone is quick, easy, and will give a strong hold for many years. The spikes can also be installed using cable ties, screws, or nails using the small holes already along the base.

Step 3 - Silicone: You will need a caulking gun (not provided) to use our Defender® silicone. Use the caulking gun to squeeze a bead of silicone about 8 mm wide along the base of the spike. The bottom of the Defender® Extra Wide Stainless Steel Spike can then be pushed on to the surface you are protecting. If the surface is undulating or rough, you may need to use a little more silicone to ensure a secure hold.

Our Defender® Silicone will adhere to wood, metal, glass, ceramics, concrete, PVC, and many more surfaces. However, it is always important to check the suitability of surfaces for use with Defender® Silicone. For more information, please visit the product page Defender® Bird Spike Fixing Silicone. If you are ever unsure, call us on 01626 835055 and we will happily advise. If you do not have a caulking gun, we have them available to purchase here and we also have a handy guide on "How to use a Caulking Gun Guide" if you haven't used one before.

Step 4 - Positioning: Placing the spike correctly is very important. The outer pins should overhang the leading edge slightly. Once the positioning is correct, push the spike down firmly and the silicone will ooze through the 10 cross-shaped holes and lock the spike into position. These holes can also be used for screws or nails too.

Step 5 - Full Protection: Repeat the process until the area is fully protected. Every effort should be made to spike all possible landing sites 2.5cm or greater. The Pigeon Plex spike has 4 snap points along the base where the user can break the strip into smaller sections with their fingers, allowing the pigeon deterrent spike to fit perfectly on any size ledge and installation.

Step 6 – Cavities and Raised Sections: Pigeons can be very possessive of their chosen nesting or roosting sites. If there is a cavity, hole, or raised section above the ledge being protected, every effort should be made to protect this too. If there is a hole behind the area, make sure this is blocked and no pigeons are trapped behind.

High Quality Stainless Steel Pigeon Spikes

The Defender® Pigeon Plex comes with a dependable 25-Year Warranty valid for UK installations, guaranteeing no rust once in situ. The 304 Grade stainless steel wires are of superior quality that will not corrode in the elements.

You may find that the lower-quality pigeon spikes available on the market can rust in a matter of years, so always look for our warranty-protected UK-manufactured Defender® Stainless Steel Pigeon Spikes.
