Chester Zoo

Chester zoo complete

The challenge faced by grand with this project was fairly complex

Project details

We had to make the door mechanism to the cages strong and robust enough to withstand the primate’s massive strength but we also had to ensure the mechanism could be operated efficiently and quickly by the staff.

To this end we worked closely with the maintenance staff and the primate keepers at the zoo to come up with a solution that not only met the strength of the primates but also was user friendly to the staff. Chester Zoo also required that all doors and hinge mechanisms operate at 100 % each time they where used for the safety of all staff.
