Case Study

Birds of Eden Free Flight Aviary KnitMesh enclosure mesh was used to cover the Birds of Eden free-flight aviary at Plettenberg Bay in South Africa. The world's largest free-flight aviary it covers approximately 23,000m2 of land, and the knitted wire mesh had to be suitable not only to retain the huge collection of birds and small primates within the park, but to keep the local pests (including larger primates such as gibbons) and predators out.
