Fencing in a Polar Bear at the Henry Vilas Zoo

Have you ever wondered what it would take to keep a bear in a zoo?

Madison Zoo Polar bears

Well, Century Fence had the opportunity to take on this great challenge with the new arrival of bears at the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, Wisconsin. This was an extraordinary undertaking to secure the site and ensure the bears will be permanently secure in their enclosure.

Century Fence installed a structure most would never even imagine. We installed posts almost four times the diameter of the average posts set on typical jobs (8″ diameter posts). Unique challenges such as this enclosure for the bears could become a huge hassle for general contractors having to babysit subcontractors who do not have the experience or expertise to effectively install a fence for such a project.

At Century Fence we differentiate ourselves and it is often most clear on unique projects because our salesmen have years of experience in the industry fully understanding your project before submitting a bid and our construction managers have extraordinary experience with more than 10+ years in the field guiding our crews to successful and proper installations every time.

Check out the final project thanks to the hard work of our crew and led by salesman, Mike Crapp, and construction manager, Mike Fehring:
