We will be present at the largest airport services exhibition of the year. Come and meet us there on 8-11 October, 2019, at the Munich Exhibition Center at Inter Airport Europe Show stand number C6-2533. You can personally check and have a closer look at our outdoor cover balls, and learn about their benefits.

To prevent bird-related accidents, several international organizations, such as the International Bird Strike Committee (IBSC) and the U.S. FAA (Federal Aviation Administration), made recommendations to airports. There are a number of recommended precautions, methods, and devices that can be used to keep birds away from airport airspace. One of the most important among them is the Bird Ball™, which allows airport open water surfaces to be hidden and camouflaged from birds so that the open surface will not attract them.

What is a cover ball?

The cover ball is a hollow high quality plastic ball that can be used to create a continuous cover layer on the surface of liquids. Depending on the amount of balls placed on a given surface, they can cover up 91% of the surface in a regular shape, self-arranging next to each other. This cover layer separates and isolates the open surface of the liquid from its surroundings, i.e. it significantly reduces the effect of the liquid on the environment and vice versa. In English, several names are used for these balls, often referred to as ‘shade ball’, ‘cover ball’, ‘armor ball’, ‘barrier ball’, or ‘bird ball’. We, as a proud European Manufacturer, call them cover ball and Bird Ball™.


How does it work? What can it be used for?

The cover balls have countless benefits, so it can be used in many diverse areas. Those advantages usually help our partners to achieve their goals for cost-saving, more efficient water management, safer work environment, environment and nature protection.
