Putting an end to rat infestations

08 April 2010

The simplest ideas are invariably the best, and Vermend’s Rat Blocker illustrates this perfectly: a no-fuss, elegant solution to the problem of increasing rat invasion via sewage outlets, for use in domestic or commercial premises.

No pesticides or hazardous chemicals are required. The blocker works by effectively preventing rats from gaining access to your premises via the sewer system; a humane method involving no mess, unpleasant odours or dead rats to dispose of.

Suitable for most sewage systems, fitting all plastic, clay and concrete sewage pipes between 100mm to 250mm; made from acid proof, stainless steel easily meeting industry standards.
The blocker is simple and quick installation through manhole with purpose-made installation handle – no need for any disruption or disturbance to existing sewage systems.

No on-going usage costs and minimum maintenance; can be installed in existing weld systems, as well as to newly manufactured sewage pipes before laying; will go on keeping your premises rat free for many years to come; appliance and parts covered by 2-year warranty.

The Rat Blocker works by simultaneously blocking off sewage pipe access, while allowing no disruption to, or reduction in, the flow of waste in the opposite direction. The Rat Blocker fits snugly into the pipe and locks into place. Inside is a double steel flap which will open when pressure from the flow of waste builds up, allowing the waste to pass freely down into the sewer. However, pressure applied to the other side of the flap closes it and creates a barrier. Any attempt to lift open the flap from this side will activate a simple locking device, making it impossible for the rat to gain entry.

Installation of the Rat Blocker could not be simpler: A purpose made, extendable handle enables the Rat Blocker to be lowered in through the manhole, where it can be easily manoeuvred into place. Once a feeling of resistance against the sides of the pipe is encountered, the installation handle can be turned clockwise, to tighten and lock the Rat Blocker securely in place. The handle is then easily detached and installation is complete.

With this one-stop, completely natural solution, there is no need for pesticides or other hazardous chemicals. Once in place, rat invasions will cease to be a problem, allowing you to go about your daily business safe in the knowledge that the health and hygiene of your living or working space is protected by a no-guilt, 100% environmentally friendly device.
