Whoever looks into their eyes recognizes the extremely close relationship to humans - chimpanzees. They use tools, care for their relatives, laugh and have fun. Hannover Zoo has provided the great apes with a beautifully designed, varied and safe outdoor enclosure. An X-TEND stainless steel cable net stretched over their heads like a tent ensures that the apes can live in safety.
For the third largest species of ape, a biotope was created in the middle of Hanover that is very close to the conditions in their African homeland.
Raised on a strong central support, the X-TEND stainless steel safety net in the form of a circus tent extends to the edge of the chimpanzee enclosure. Fixed by the I-SYS stainless steel cable system, the individual net components withstand wind and weather as well as the attempts of the clever animals to overcome the springy barrier.
Protecting the species is particularly important for those responsible at Hannover Zoo. In their natural habitat, the African wet savannah, both heavy poaching and the progressive destruction of their habitat threaten the animals. At Hannover Zoo the sensitive great apes are well protected from these dangers. The chimpanzees live in the wild ...
The reason for the installation and the associated conversion of the monkey enclosure was an outbreak of the animals. 2012 they escaped from their monkey house. Now this is no longer possible thanks to the 2,100 m² X-TEND CXE stainless steel mesh. It is firmly anchored to a 14 metre high pylon with the I-SYS stainless steel cable system.
CARL STAHL ARCHITECTURE is always pleased when our products can make the lives of people and animals safer. Thanks to the X-TEND CXE stainless steel mesh, the chimpanzees at Hanover Zoo have complete freedom of movement without having to make another unplanned excursion.
