Case Study:

California High Speed Rail

Environmental teams working on the California High Speed Rail had found plastic mesh fencing used on early stages was not withstanding the demands of the project and required frequent replacement and maintenance. To avoid delays and reduce ongoing costs biologists teamed with engineers, contractors and the High Speed Rail Authority to utilize Animex for its high durability, low cost and animal-safe technology.Our team provided training and advice to contractors for quick, effective and low-impact installation. Moving forward, Animex’s durability and reusability will dramatically reduce ongoing costs and prevent dumping of short-term plastic mesh materials in the landfill.
