Optical Gel

Optical Gel

The easiest bio-tech forcefield you'll ever install.

It's natural and safe for us, and yes...even for the birds. But they HATE IT!


Unmatched Performance When Combined in Three Key Areas


1. INVISIBLE · Bird control products that cannot be seen once installed is a goal we all desire. From below, Optical Gel is out of site.

2. A CINCH · Undetectability often means complexity in installation. Optical Gel does not trade this off. It's easy to install. Dare we say almost fun. Choose between glued (this version), magnetic or zip-tied options to make sure it stays put.

3. JAW-DROPPINGINGLY EFFECTIVE · And finally, the modernity of this barrier is how well it works. Watching it function in real-time is quite stunning. Optical Gel not only ushers birds off of whatever they might land but denys and seemingly repulses them before they do. Watch a one minute of video of highlights or a four minute detailed video here.


How, Who & Where


HOW · It's a multi-sensory bird deterrent that spoofs their:

SIGHT · Dishes appear to be extremely detrimental to their safety (akin to fire or smoke) and avoid immediately.

SMELL · They can't stand the citronella and peppermint oil smell which to us is pleasant.

TOUCH · They avoid sticky material (in the unlikely event they touch it).


WHO · This tiny, safe and natural disk works on:

 Pigeons

 Woodpeckers

 Gulls

 Crows

 Starlings

 Mud Swallows

and many other unwanted birds from roosting on buildings and other structures.
Placement is important. Please click here to learn just how we handle these clever animals.

WHERE · Glue them:

  where birds temporarily loaf

  when nesting occurs (follow bird-specific guidelines)

  where groups of birds congregate

  deep into tight areas

  onto movable bases to be placed when away

  to sensitive equipment

  in attractive patterns directly onto skylights

  atop lights and other tall perching spots

  not just to edges but to large areas

  around woodpecker holes

  and the list goes on...


Optical Gel is supplied in 24 ready-to-use 2.5" x .25" plastic dish containers with reusable lids included.


FIND AN INSTALLER
  1.  
    $95.00 - $750.00
  2. So simple for us. So difficult for the birds.

    This version of Optical Gel glues into place, most often with silicone, which means it can be placed nearly anywhere.


    Why Use the Glue-On Version?

    1. VERSATILITY · Projects often pose unforsseen structural or clever bird habitation that requires thoughtful placement of these disks to gaurantee abatement. The neutral stance of our glued version is ready for anything.

    2. PRICE · Our glued-down version is the cheapest of all routes per unit. However, there are a few ways of looking at this comparison between this version to the magentic or zip-tied based versions. If these two alternate choices can be used in your project but cost holds you back, rememeber the price of silicone should weigh in on your comparison. And then there's time.

    3. NECESSITY · Overall, many disks won't be attached to metal or to structure that a zip-tie would find good grip. So, glue them down is the way to do it. Do note that using a removable ashesive such as silicone is suggested. Building owners often know that external installions tend to diminish the appearance of their buildi over time. Silicone helps keep things looking great.


    How To Glue Them

    Plan your pattern first.

    PLACE · Once the area is ready and without glue, place the disks into the pattern that follows our guildlines.

    LIFT, FLIP & DOLLOP · With silicone in hand, remove the lid, flip the disk and apply an appropriate amount of silicone to the base. We often over-apply here so do remember that on smooth surfaces, sometimes less is more. We want your material costs to be as low as can be.

    RE-PLACE · Put that single disk down from where exactly it came. Of course a little rotation to embedd the silicone into the structure is an intuative action ans is great. But please avoid sliding the disk around. The reason we've pre-placed the disks is to avoid moving them once glued. Refine your postion ahead of time.


    Where To Glue Them


    Every bird type has their habits.

    Follow our bird-specific guides to make the placement of Optical Gel impenetrable.

     Pigeons, Crows, Starlings, etc. fall under General placement.

     Woodpeckers have small sound hols and nesting holes.

     Gulls through their weight around by trying to rip away the disks. We've got them handled.

     Mud Swallows love home-base. Our patterning spells eviction.

    Here are a few places to use these. Of course there are many more. So, glue them:

      where birds temporarily loaf

      when nesting occurs (follow bird-specific guidelines)

      where groups of birds congregate

      deep into tight areas

      onto movable bases to be placed when away

      to sensative equipment

      in attractive patterns directly onto skylights

      atop lights and other tall perching spots

      not just to edges but to large areas

      around woodpecker holes

      and the list goes on...

    The easiest forcefield you'll ever install. And easier to grab out of our 200 unit contractor box.


    1. Your customers will appreciate Optical Gel's invisibility once installed. From below, Optical Gel is out of site. If you're installing from an area seen from above, placing Optical Gel in an attractive pattern that follows our guildlines will garner word-of-mouth business from clients that know you care. Tips like these can be learned from our training classes. Join us!

    2. Invisibility from your customer's view often means a more complex installation for you. Optical Gel is easy saying no to this trade-off and dare we say almost fun to install. Choose between glued (this version), magentic or zip-tied options to make sure it stays put. We've found at least a 24 pack of Optical Gel Mag and a 1 pack of Optical Gel Zips accompany nicely a contractor box. Hitting metal with Mag...knife through butter.

    3. And finally, informing the client of modernity of this barrier and how well it works is key. Watching it function in real-time is quite stunning. Optical Gel not only ushers birds off of whatever they might land but denys and seemingly repulses them before they do. Showing this a one minute of video of highlights or a four minute detailed video here often seals a deal. The question you'll get most often is, "yeah, but does it really work?." A quick scroll of our complete loine of bird control products gives pause to such doubt. We make the best. We wouldn't carry something that isn't in line with our proven track record.
