Beastly good – The interaction between architecture and species-appropriate enclosures.


More space, fewer animals – this is the fundamental concept when zoo experts talk about keeping animals in a species-appropriate environment. That means the greatest challenge here is meeting both the need humans have to observe animals at close range and the need animals have to live in an environment suitable for them.

The robust wire rope net, Webnet, enables the realisation of the typically delicate and individualised solutions which meet both the needs of humans as well as those of the animals. The objective is to provide not only the animals, but also the visitors a diverse environment. In other words, a solution is sought that has a long service life, is nearly invisible, yet is also sufficiently robust.

Jakob Rope Systems supplies both materials and know-how to create functional yet architecturally sophisticated animal enclosures. The nets used are woven of flexible wire ropes. Their advantages are numerous: they enable space-saving designs, offer the highest degree of transparency and visual airiness, guarantee safety for humans and animals and are convincing due to their low maintenance costs and longevity.

Let our references inspire you. Jakob Rope Systems is there for you with competence for the development of innovative solutions. From the planning phase to turnkey job site assembly.
