Hen safe doors were developed through a need for
an alternative option to manually closing our 7 sheds spread over 20
acres, morning and night, seven days a week. The hen safe door is an
automatic solar powered chicken coop door. The hen safe door
operates through a pre-programmed timer which is connected to a back up
battery pack for those days when the sun is not out and charging is at
a minimum via solar power.This enables your chickens to be let out in
the morning and locked up at night without you having to be there.
Hen safe doors are made from full aluminum which
is rust free and weather resistant. Consumers can have optional opening
and closing times for different days of the week, for example opening
later on a Sunday.
The door comes fully pre assembled ensuring the product is easy to
install and the only thing consumers need to do is cut a hole the size
of the opening, screw the door to the coop and mount the solar panel to
the roof of the chicken coop.
The doors are currently being used overseas
however it was very expensive and delivery was prolonged due to the
weight of the door. This prompted us to develop a light weight aluminum
door that could be available in Australia and be more cost effective
for local customers. From the doors we have sold to date we have had
very positive feed back especially about the time the doors have saved
and the ability of our purchasers to now be able to have a bit more of
a social life due to not having to be home at night to close up their
beloved cooks and the convenience of not having to change batteries.
We currently have them installed on our chicken farm, which also
accommodates larger birds like ducks and geese. Our tip is to remember
daylight savings and change the timer in accordance to the sun rising
The doors can be purchased on the farm or are also
packed to be posted at a price of $240 plus postage. Hen safe doors
offer a 30 day money back guarantee and a
one year warranty. If clubs or organizations wish to purchase in bulk,
we offer a deal of buy 10 and get one free or 10% discount on their
bulk order of five or more doors.
