Genesis Nest Box Material

The main Genesis Nest Box material is ResCom® Cellular Magnesia Cement board, which is used together with stainless steel and aluminium fixings and fittings. These materials combine to make highly durable nest boxes, which will last for years. The full range of nest boxes can be seen in our online shop.

Under no circumstances should Genesis Nest Boxes be placed on a South facing wall. This is where the full heat of the sun and adverse weather conditions could affect the nesting birds.

Swift Nest Box Installation Instructions from BirdWatch Ireland. Pages 14 and 15 have the relevant information.

Genesis Nest Boxes are the sole providers of ResCom® board, which is stored in Killarney. The board can be purchased for construction projects. Please contact Stephan for more information by using the information on the Contact Us page.
