Zoo Enclosure | Versatile Enclosure Design

Rescue Lions given safe haven, thanks to CLD Fencing Systems versatile Zoo Enclosure Fencing.

When the Isle of Wight Zoo needed to save two lions from a circus in Spain, CLD’s versatile Zoo Enclosure Fencing came to the rescue.

CLD Fencing Systems had previously designed and manufactured, with Moore Fencing Ltd successfully installing, a zoo enclosure originally for rescue tigers. Due to the versatile nature of the zoo enclosure; thanks to CLD Fencing Systems zoo fencing, this was re-purposed to house the lions.

This adaptability of CLD’s Zoo Fencing has been a major cost saving aspect for the Isle of Wight Zoo. They didn’t need to construct a brand new custom enclosure for the lions, and with this quick turnaround the lions were brought to safety sooner than anticipated.

The versatility of CLD’s Rigid Mesh Fencing is the reason why many zoos use our Dulok Double Wire range for their animal enclosures.

There are many other key features for using Dulok within zoos and wildlife parks. They include:

  • Twin 8mm wires welded either side of 6mm vertical wires
  • A mesh size of 200x50mm giving visitors excellent visibility
  • Anti-climb and anti-cut technology which guarantees safety
  • Fencing Systems are available in a range of RAL colours

CLD Fencing Systems has worked on a number of zoo projects including Chester Zoo, ZSL London Zoo and Folly Farm using our range of Dulok Double Wire Fencing.
