MISSION VIEJO, Calif. – The United States Patent office has recently awarded two new patents to Bird-B-Gone, Inc. on the Bird Jolt Flat Track™ bird deterrent system.
Bird Jolt Flat Track is a low profile electric track system that produces a mild electric jolt when birds land on its surface.
Bird Jolt Flat Track is the only electric track bird deterrent system with a patented anti-arcing and glue trough design.
The two new patents were awarded for the systems’ glue troughs; US 8015747 & US 8020340.
Patented glue troughs along the base of the Bird Jolt Flat Track system raise and insulate the threads that secure the conductors. This design prevents water from creating a conductive channel underneath the track by wicking up the threads and shorting out the track. The glue troughs also make for better adhesion.
Combined with the anti-arcing design, the two new patents make Bird Jolt Flat Track a safe and effective choice.
A common problem among electrified track systems is arcing. Arcing occurs when water or moisture on the surface of the track creates a conductive channel between the knitted mesh conductors. When this occurs, electrified track systems will short out, rendering them ineffective.
