Randers Tropical Zoo
The Danish indoor tropical zoo “Randers Regnskov”, commissioned an outdoor walking bridge. Given the tropical theme of Randers Regnskov and the fact that they are actively engaged in conservation efforts, both in tropical rainforests and in Denmark, it seems obvious that they chose FSC certified wood for the project.

They didn’t just choose FSC certified wood. To illustrate the diversity of tropical trees they chose to use no less than 12 different species. This means that the walkway is a good practical showcase on species for decking and a test of how the different species acts in the danish climate
