Mega-project Africa Rocks in San Diego Zoo is completed

15. February / 2018

In Africa Rocks, the visitors will never find dreary concrete landscapes and animals that last behind bars or massive glass walls -therefore, the outdoor area fascinates with a mesh surface of ​​about 17,000 square meters and a pure weight of about 6.5 tones, which is supported by only 9 steel pylons.  This is realized by a barely perceptible, filigree stainless steel cable mesh construction as the only separation between humans and animals. In order to create appropriate habitats for the various animals, exact planning, statical analysis, a high quality production and on-site assembly are required.
