Products for Bird Control in Airports

Bird strikes are a significant threat to flight safety and annual damages have been estimated at $400 million within the United States of America alone and up to $1.2 billion to commercial aircraft worldwide.

AWTT Inc. modular floating covers are the ultimate bird control system. They provide a very effective way to camouflage lagoons, reservoirs, open tanks and runoff basins to prevent birds from landing, nesting or using and contaminating the water.

All of our floating covers are currently used for bird control: The U.V. Black Armor Balls® & Armor Balls® AQUA which cover 91% of the surface area. And the U.V. Black Hexprotect® AQUA and Hexoshield®, which cover up to 99% of the surface area.

Installation is easy and does not require construction or infrastructure to build and maintain. The U.V. and chemical resistant HDPE Balls withstand sun, rain, ice, snow and wind for an effective service life of over 20 years.
