Double wire welded steel fencing for zoos and wildlife parks
Where dangerous and exotic animals roam double wire steel fencing is an ideal solution for containing them when fitted with an overhang. To be absolutely safe for the animals and those that come to view them, it’s always best to exceed fencing legislation and we recommend a fence height of at least 5 metres with a metre and a half overhang.

Wild animals will explore their territory and its perimeters so attempting to chew through fencing is not uncommon as they seek to expand their territory. With this type of security fencing they will give up on the idea very quickly. Given the obvious danger these animals can be to visitors, no zoo or Wildlife Park can afford to take the risk of them escaping. The fences securing their compounds and territory must also be intruder proof both from over curious visitors and unscrupulous individuals wishing to steal them.

In addition, zoos and wildlife parks are expensive to run and usually don’t have a bottomless pit of money. Double wire welded steel fencing is affordable and durable, lasting a minimum of the lifetime of a lion which is normally around 20 years. It is the product of choice in the UK for facilities where wild animals are kept.

For wildlife parks green is a good colour choice in the UK because it blends in nicely with the countryside.

Professional security fencing should be installed by professional fencing contractors who are experienced in fitting it. You should not take the risk of installing it yourself or using unqualified individuals to do it for you.
