Superior Recreational Products designs custom shades for Milwaukee County Zoo Animals

Milwaukee County Zoo Shade by Superior Recreational Products

Designing something custom and site specific for an end user is always a fun and exciting process that allows us to match our custom capabilities with the customer’s needs.

Superior Recreational Products (SRP), a leading manufacturer of recreational products, releases an in-depth case study on the design and implementation of three new exhibit shades at the Milwaukee County Zoo.

Due to a recent change in accreditation standards set forth by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), facilities are required to provide sufficient shade, either naturally or artificially, so that animals who are kept outdoors can protect themselves from direct sunlight.

In order to maintain existing certification from the AZA, the Milwaukee County Zoo sought out the help of New Berlin-based Superior Partner GMB & Associates to begin a phased project to include artificial shade in their African Elephant, Harbor Seal, and Polar Bear exhibits.

“Designing something custom and site specific for an end user is always a fun and exciting process that allows us to match our custom capabilities with the customer’s needs. The Milwaukee County Zoo project is a great example of putting together a turnkey project to meet the shade needs of these beautiful animals,” Brent Derbecker, SRP’s Shade and Shelter Brand Manager, said.

The case study gives an in-depth look into the customer’s journey of this process. It discusses the customer’s needs and wants for the new shades, the design process, installation, and the impact it had on their AZA accreditation.
