Krakow Zoo (PL)
Krakow Zoo, Poland
This complex of three enclosures at Krakow Zoo in Poland allow spectacular views of Siberian tigers, snow leopards and panthers.
Featuring an arcing steel sub-structure, the Jakob Webnet stainless steel mesh enabled sympathetic animal enclosures to be developed, that seamlessly integrate and blend with the natural environment. Providing high strength and security, the Webnet wire rope structure is nevertheless exceptionally light and airy, enabling visitors to have clear views of the big cats both from distance and close to the enclosure.
“The mesh composition and load capacity of Webnet can both be varied by selecting thicker or thinner rope diameters.”
