Animal Enclosures

Flexi-Mesh is a widely used for zoological enclosures

Zoo architecture has become a specialist field, utilising materials that provide a safe, attractive, transparent and enjoyable habitat for the animals and the viewers alike.

Arcus Wire Group have provided Flexi-Mesh, structural cables and structural rods to the following zoos.

  • Taronga Zoo, Sydney NSW Australia
  • Melbourne Zoo, Melbourne VIC Australia
  • Perth Zoo, Perth, WA Australia

Flexi-Mesh enables the visitors to observe animals in species appropriate environements. The robust Flexi-Mesh system enables the realisation of the typically delicate and individualised solutions which meet both the needs of humans as well as those of the animals. The objective is to provide not only the animals, but also the visitors a diverse environment. In other words, a solution is sought that has a long service life, is nearly invisible, yet is also sufficiently robust.  

Flexi-Mesh Systems supplies both materials and know-how to create functional yet architecturally sophisticated animal enclosures. The nets used are woven of flexible wire ropes. Their advantages are numerous: they enable space-saving designs, offer the highest degree of transparency and visual airiness, guarantee safety for humans and animals and are convincing due to their low maintenance costs and longevity.

Transparency and Light

Flexi-Mesh provides the ideal solution for enclosures suitable for flying and non-flying birds.

Flexi-Mesh is suited to walk-in aviaries as well as large and small bird enclosures as the stainless steel wire rope mesh offers flexibility in design, smooth surfaces as to not harm the birds feathers and strong resistance to breaking from animal biting.

With the advantage’s of offering good ventilation and light transmission as well as unimposing integration into the surrounding environment Flexi-Mesh maximises the viewing experience for visitors and provides a quality living environment for the birds.
