Lincolnshire Wildlife Park

Creating natural and secure environments for wildlife observation

The project

Lincolnshire Wildlife Park, formerly known as The Parrot Zoo, is a sanctuary to the wildlife in its care. It provides rehabilitation and long-term security to animals which fall victim to the pet trade, including lemurs, meerkats, coatimundis, giant tortoises and many more. It is also home to the UK's largest collection of Bengal tigers.

The park required glass with a high clarity for its tiger enclosure that could allow the public uninterrupted views of the animals in their habitat, with enhanced security needed for the protection of the both the tigers and the zoo’s visitors

The solution

The park required large glass viewing panels with a high clarity to allow uninterrupted views of the tigers in their enclosure. The panels also needed to be able to withstand substantial impact. Romag’s Physical Security Glass

The glass had to be laminated to a certain thickness to provide the level of protection specified. In traditional float glass this is problematic as the iron content in gives glass a green hue. As float glass gets thicker, the glass appears more green.

To overcome this, a special, low-iron glass that increases light transmission and reduces the green tint significantly was used, resulting in pure, very clear glass. By using this particular glass, Romag was able to deliver a high-performance product that exceeded the specifying brief. This project is an excellent example of Romag’s work to meet a client’s specialist requirements within the security market.

From The Client

“Romag provided excellent advice and service when we were selecting the appropriate glass for the project and delivered what was promised quickly and on time. This gave us confidence to again select Romag’s high quality laminated glass for installation in our new ‘Bengal Gardens’ attraction, which is another unique new research enclosure currently under construction".
