Most people aren’t able to go on safari in Africa or dive deep into the Pacific Ocean to view sea life up close. That’s where zoos come in – since people can’t go see the animals, the zoo brings the animals to the people. In the case of sea life, that means creating exhibits featuring well-lit tanks with high optical clarity.
These exhibits provide visitors with views of sea life that they otherwise would never be able to enjoy. Suddenly, the world gets smaller and people gain a greater appreciation for the natural wonders that make Earth such an amazing place to live.
Innovative Acrylics has built an outstanding reputation for providing zoos with both large and small aquariums that allows visitors to see underwater life up close and personal.
Using cast acrylic – a major step forward in acrylic innovation – Innovative Acrylics is able to create aquariums in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. For example, the company recently completed work on a zoo exhibit featuring both medium-sized tanks and smaller tanks showcasing some of the sea’s most colorful and rarely seen fish.
“ At Innovative Acrylics, we draw a lot of satisfaction from the role we play in allowing people to see rare and beautiful underwater species at zoos and other animal exhibits around the world.“
– Sean Stalter, Innovative Acrylics
There are two big challenges when building aquariums for zoos. 1) The aquarium must provide clear, unobstructed views of the sea life inside. Innovative Acrylics accomplishes this by using proprietary bonding techniques that allow it to join acrylic panels with near invisible seals. And 2), the aquariums must be impact resistant as visitors may make contact with the acrylic panels frequently. Innovative Acrylics accomplishes this by using cast acrylic, which is stronger than many other acrylics.
Innovative Acrylics has become a leading provider of aquariums for exhibits at zoos, hotels, animal parks and other locations for one very big reason – the company consistently delivers the highest quality tanks.
When zoo officials work with Innovative Acrylics they can be confident they are going to receive exactly what they need – on time and on budget.
With offices in Miami, New York, London, Paris and Sydney, Innovative Acrylics is able to quickly service zoos no matter where they are located. Innovative Acrylics is also one of the only companies that offers design, fabrication and installation – saving zoos from having to deal with multiple firms and the communication issues that can arise from that situation.
