Something that SchermNed and Burgers’ Zoo have in common is that both are family businesses. There was no guarantee that the mangrove would actually be successful, but the family behind Burgers’ Zoo thought it was important to press ahead with the project as this was a way of raising awareness of the threats to natural mangroves.
The role of SchermNed
SchermNed was involved in the development of the outside screen as a climate and sun protection system, in combination with the domed structure of the mangrove. Predominantly aluminum, galvanized stainless steel and a polyester cloth were used. Our salesman, Carl Stougie, believes this was a special project to work on, because of the customer and their vision. SchermNed's domed shading, with a 60-m diameter, is the largest in the world.
Sustainability and safety
The mangrove was constructed with an emphasis on sustainability. For example, power is generated by roof-mounted solar panels. The aim of SchermNed's work is partially to emulate the climate conditions in which the animals would live. Even when it is –10°C outdoors, indoors the climate must be pleasant for both the animals and plants.
