Wire rope systems
Welcome to the rope jungle
Gondwandaland is a covered area at Leipzig zoo where visitors can marvel at ninety exotic animal species plus more than five hundred different trees and plants from Africa, Asia and South America. In addition to the five animal enclosures, CARL ST AHL ARCHITE CTURE also designed the suspension bridges. This particular bridge is anchored with I-SYS stainless steel cables 30 metres long and 26 millimetres in diameter; these wire ropes are in turn attached to the vertical I-SYS cables from which the walkways are suspended.
