Animal enclosures

Webnet makes it possible to meet architectural and species-appropriate enclosure requirements

More space, fewer animals - that's the basic concept when zoo experts talk about keeping animals in a species-appropriate environment. This means that the biggest challenge here is to meet both the need for humans to observe animals up close and the need for animals to live in an environment that suits them.

The robust steel wire mesh, Webnet, enables the realization of the typically delicate and individualized solutions that meet the needs of both humans and animals. The goal is to provide not only the animals, but also the visitors with a diverse environment. In other words, a solution is sought that has a long lifespan, is almost invisible, but at the same time is sufficiently robust.

Jakob Rope Systems provides both the materials and know-how to create functional yet architecturally sophisticated animal enclosures. The nets used are woven from flexible steel wire ropes. Their advantages are numerous: they enable space-saving design, 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 long service life.

Let our references inspire you. Jakob Rope Systems is there for you with the competence to develop innovative solutions. From the planning phase to turnkey site installation.

For an architect planning a new animal enclosure, Webnet provides the perfect solution. The system offers virtually unlimited possibilities in designing landscaped enclosures of any shape, size or complexity.

Aviaries where birds can spread their wings
