Zoo designers strive to create artificial ecosystems with net structures carefully designed and embedded in the surrounding topography.
Ronstan tensile cable enclosures for zoos utilize Carl Stahl X-TEND stainless steel mesh fabric as the ultimate transparent net structure. The mesh becomes part of the primary load carrying structure, sharing the load and enabling the optimization of other primary structural components. Without any interfering substructure, the fine cable mesh fabric allows an open view into the enclosure.
