Zoos and Wildlife Parks have come along way in the last 50 years and so has CLD Fencing Systems Zoo Fencing and Wildlife Park Fencing Systems.

The security and safety of your visitors and animals is the highest priority when it comes to looking at how you can update your animal enclosures to meet the demand of being a modern zoo or wildlife park. Visitors no longer want to be separated from the animals but instead want to feel like the enclosure is a part of the attraction. At CLD Fencing Systems we have worked hard to develop a range of fencing systems that provide both open viewing and safety at the same time.

That is why some of the biggest names in Zoos and Wildlife Parks have our range of Zoo Fencing protecting their visitors and animals every day. From the Lions of London to the Tigers of Chessington, find out how our zoo fencing and wildlife fencing can help your next enclosures become major attractions.

Types of zoo enclosure fencing?

Here at CLD Fencing Systems, we have a wide range of zoo enclosure fencing available. Each of the fencing systems we manufacture for zoo and wildlife parks are designed to ensure security and safety. Not only for the animals, but also for staff and visitors, which means we are always working alongside industry professionals throughout the process.

All zoos require various different fencing solutions for their enclosures in order to appropriately house different species. So it is vital that we provide a range of options that meet the necessary standards. Our double wire zoo and wildlife park fencing system and gate solutions vary, and include the following:

  • 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

Offering this vast selection of zoo enclosure fencing means we can help you to create an enclosure that both the animals and visitors will love, and that will keep both parties safe. Of course, not every zoo fencing will be the same, and each zoo we work with have their own criteria in place to ensure the needs of the specific animals are met. For example, a wire fencing enclosure for an elephant needs to meet the correct specifications to ensure they cannot for example fit their 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?

We understand that safety and security is of absolute paramount importance with zoo enclosure fencing, which is why we only work with specialist zoo fencing approved contractors for these jobs. We appreciate that many zoo animals are agile and extremely smart, so it’s vital that our enclosures not only keep unauthorised access under control to help protect endangered species, but that they also offer complete security for any potential eventualities.

Our priority is the safety of both the people and the animals within a zoo environment. For this reason, we always work closely with zoo advisers, police and a range of other specialists to ensure the enclosures we create are secure and offer visual appeal, but most importantly, offer protection.

Good zoo fencing must meet the most stringent requirements, and with over 50 years’ 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, and continue 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. This can require a lot of research and a lot of liaising with experts to guarantee the fencing system is safe and secure, and able to withstand any eventuality.

For example, in the past we have documented our process during the build of a lion enclosure, which measured at 17ft high to ensure there was absolutely no chance of a lion jumping the fencing, or of others climbing to get in. Just one of many examples.

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 absolute essential aspect of the building and construction for the safe keeping of animals. Not only does this type of fencing keep the animals safe, but it also keeps workers and visitors safe from harm. In order to maintain high levels of security, certain measures must be followed.

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

If electric fencing is used in any enclosure, it must be checked daily, and there must be a back-up power supply in the case of a power cut.

Some enclosures where non-domestic animals are kept don’t require overnight containment, but in these cases the use of predator-proof fencing is essential.

Even Bigger Cats…

Creating safe enclosures for the animals requires years of experience, that is why we work from the outset with all the partners of the project.


Our specialist Zoo Fencing Approved Contractors will visit site with ourselves to make sure that all aspects of security and safety are covered in the design brief and see it through all the way to the commissioning of the new enclosures.

Keeping endangered animals safe…

The protection of endangered species has never been more important. In the last 40 years the number of wild animals on Earth has halved according to research by scientists at WWF and the Zoological Society of London.

Zoos and Wildlife Parks play an important part in the protection, education and research of endangered species, with dedicated breeding programmes to help species come back from the brink of extinction. However, a good zoo needs to not only protect the visitors but the animals as well. 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, security and safety advisers to create our range of zoos and wildlife park fencing systems. Using our Twin Wire Dulok Zoo Fencing System, it is manufactured to include dedicated fixings and additional security features that make it perfect for your next Zoo Fencing and Wildlife Project.
