Zoo and Wildlife Park Fencing Icon

Zoos and Wildlife parks have come a long way in the last 50 years. This has meant that at CLD Systems, we’ve also had to innovate and improve our fencing solutions. 


Safety, Security, and Viewing 


The security and safety of the animals and the visitors of a zoo or wildlife park are of the utmost importance. Therefore, ensuring the safety of animals and visitors is a top priority when planning your fencing. But it’s not just enclosures that require fencing. Perimeter fencing should create a clear boundary and public space fencing should help visitors navigate your attraction. 

Visitors no longer want to be separated from the animals. But rather they want to experience animals up close, with the enclosure fencing seamlessly blending in. Allowing for a clear and uninterrupted view. 

At CLD Systems, we have worked hard to design and develop a range of fencing and gate systems that are ideal for zoos and wildlife parks. They provide safety, and security and are durable, as well as allow for a clear view of the animals within an enclosure. 


Zoos we have worked with 


We are proud to have worked with some of the biggest names within the Zoo and Wildlife park industry. Our fencing and gates have, and continue to protect animals and visitors within these establishments daily. From the Lions of London to the Tigers of Chessington. Discover how CLD Systems fencing could help to provide protection for both your animals and visitors.



Zoo and Wildlife Fencing FAQs 


Types of zoo enclosure fencing?


At CLD Systems, we provide a wide range of zoo and wildlife fencing. Each is designed and manufactured to ensure both safety and security. For both the animals within the enclosure and for visitors who are viewing the animals. We are able to do this by working closely with industry professionals, throughout our process. 


As with any business, every zoo or wildlife facility will have different requirements and fencing needs in order to provide the correct level of protection. So, it is vital that we provide various options that meet the necessary standards.


Our double-wire fencing options include: 

  •  Lion enclosure fencing
  • Tiger enclosure fencing
  • Monkey enclosures
  • Perimeter fencing
  • Enclosure air lock gate systems
  • Decorative fencing
  • Zoo fencing
  • Wildlife park fencing
  • Security gates for feed areas


By offering this wide range of enclosure fencing, we’re able to meet the needs of zoos and wildlife facilities across the country. As well as being able to supply the relevant fencing to different areas of a zoo or park. 


Our fencing provides safety, and security, and is durable, whilst allowing for great visibility. However, we understand that each site is individual, and that is why our team will work alongside you to ensure requirements are met. 

For example, a wire fencing enclosure for an elephant needs to meet the correct specifications to ensure it cannot for example fit its trunk through the gaps of the fencing. This same rule stands for all the different projects we work on, and so communication with the zoos and their specialists is at the core of every project we take on.


How safe is a zoo fencing enclosure?


Safety and security are of absolute importance when it comes to zoo fencing. That’s why we only work with specialist zoo fencing-approved contractors for our zoo and wildlife fencing projects. 


At CLD Systems, we appreciate that many animals within zoos are extremely intelligent, meaning it’s vital that your fencing enclosures help to protect endangered species. Whilst keeping out any unauthorised personnel from accessing enclosures. Offering complete security for a range of potential eventualities. 


Our priority when designing and manufacturing our fencing is the safety of both the animals and visitors. That’s why we work closely with zoo advisors, the police, and a range of other specialists. Ensuring that the enclosures we create are secure, offer protection, and offer a visual appeal. 


Good zoo fencing must meet the most stringent requirements. With over 50 years of experience working within the industry, we’re confident that we can meet and exceed these standards. We have worked alongside some of the biggest and most well-loved zoos up and down the country. CLD continues to provide reliable, attractive, and effective zoo enclosure fencing for not only new enclosures but for upgrades too.


How high should zoo enclosure fencing be?


When designing and manufacturing a zoo enclosure, we must first communicate with the zoo and its specialists to ensure the type of enclosure we create is appropriate for its tenants (the animals). This can require research and liaising with experts to guarantee that the fencing system is safe and secure. Plus, able to withstand any eventuality. 


We previously created a lion enclosure that measured 17ft high. This ensured that there was zero chance of a lion jumping, and clearing the fencing, as well as no chance that a person could climb the fencing and get into the enclosure. 


Of course, enclosure fencing for smaller animals may not require such height. Whilst certain species may require an entire fencing and roof enclosure to maintain security – such as a monkey enclosure. In short, there really is no benchmark for how zoo fencing should be, and each project we take on is bespoke to the zoo and its purpose.


What are the standards for Zoo and Wildlife Park fencing?


Zoo and wildlife park fencing is an essential part of the building and construction process, which enables both animals and visitors to be kept safe. But in order to maintain high levels of security, certain measures must be followed. 


For example, where dangerous carnivorous animals are enclosed, access gates must be protected by fencing. This fencing must have been positioned at right angles to the perimeter fencing on either side of the roadway within the enclosure. 


If electric fencing is used in any enclosure, this must be checked daily. There must also be a backup power supply, in the case of a power cut. 


For some enclosures where non-domestic animals are kept, they may not require overnight containment. However, for some, predator-proof fencing is essential overnight.


Creating a safe environment for all


Creating a secure and safe environment for both animals and visitors requires years of experience and knowledge. That’s why at CLD Systems, we work with all partners of the project from the outset. 


Our specialists Zoo fencing approved contractors will visit a site, alongside CLD to ensure that all aspects of security and safety are covered in the design brief. Ensuring that this is communicated throughout the project, right until the installation stage.

Keeping endangered animals safe


The protection of endangered species has never been more important.

In the past 48 years, the wildlife populations on the earth have declined by a huge 69%


Therefore, zoos and wildlife parks play an important role in the protection, education, and research of endangered species. Many of these, have dedicated breeding programmes to help species come back from the brink of extinction. 

Essential to providing a safe environment is fencing. In 2017; poachers gained entry to the Rhino Enclosure at a French Zoo, killing and dehorning one of the White Rhinos.


This is why we have worked with advisers from zoos, police, and security and safety advisers to create our range of zoo and wildlife park fencing systems. Using our Twin Wire Dulok Zoo Fencing System is manufactured to include dedicated fixings and additional security features that make it perfect for your next Zoo Fencing and Wildlife Project.
