K-Bat Acoustic Rigging System


K-Bat Acoustic Rigging System

K-Bat System  K-Bat Close Up

What is K-Bat?

Strategically designed by Keith Broyles, founder of KB Energy, for biologists who were constantly fighting home-made, nonfunctioning pulley systems that continually failed. The K-Bat (Pat. Pend.) is an acoustic rigging system that is used to provide security and reliability for bat recording equipment that is easily installed onto lattice and tilt-up meteorological towers. Biologists can simply install and retrieve their acoustic equipment and valuable data with our system, worry-free. The ease of use and compatibility with many tower styles makes the K-Bat acoustic rigging system the best and only of it's kind in the industry.

Designed to withstand the hardest wind sites imaginable, the K-Bat has not had a single failure in 5 years of use.
