Customer Experience – Taronga Park Zoo – Sydney Australia
Taronga Zoo is the city zoo of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia and is located on the shores of Sydney Harbour in the suburb of Mosman.
The Zoo needed to ensure its elephant timber viewing platforms with thatched roofing compiled with fire protection regulations.
After investigating a range of available products, the zoo authorities selected Chemron’s Fire Retardant Liquid to treat its facilities.
Key factors in the selection were:
- The CSIRO had tested the product against the applicable Australian Standards.
- It was an Australia made product suitable for the harsh Australian weather conditions.
- It was easy to apply.
- Didn’t adversely affect the natural appearance of the timber or thatch.
