Sleeveless Webnet: ideal for climbing animals

Macaque Enclosure, Basel Zoo

The facility was designed explicitly to provide a habitat for the macaques of Southeast Asia. A perfect case for our sleeveless Webnet with a matte black finish. It gives Basel’s favorite monkey tribe plenty of climbing and dangling options as well as lofty views from the rock outcrops. Heated cubicles are integrated into the cliff structure. A creek and a pond allow the monkeys to engage in easygoing water play.

The installation was completely planned and executed by Jakob Rope Systems, demonstrating the strength of our all-round service for zoo enclosures. Together with Basel zoo and the architect, we planned the net statics, produced the Webnet wire meshes and installed them on site.

Architect: Peter Stiner
