• All weather zoo in Münster

    Renovation of the outer enclosure through simply overbuilding the existing surface

  • An elastic construction principle

    Slight play in the TTE® elements creates a pleasant and easy on the joints walking experience for the animals.

  • A feel good oasis for zoo animals

    The permanent seepage capability - it means no build-up of mud and therefore clean and easy to clean surfaces.

  • Appropriate animal husbandry

    A choice of various covering layers allows one to meet the needs of the animals. The TTE® elements mostly perform their function in an invisible manner.

  • TTE® is significantly more stable than paddock mats and light grids
  • the system replaces the base course layer (no excavation & compaction)
  • an ABOVE-structure and protection from compaction (through load distribution) securing seeping away of rain water by up to 100% => build-up of mud is impossible
  • low odour surfaces => decomposition of nitrate contamination by the retained top soil (microorganisms)
  • an impact dampening/easy on the joints construction principle => construction hard onto soft (natural soil)
  • residue-free removal and a high resale value (about 50% after 5 years
  • a simple approval process => no intervention in the ground - the landscape protection concept
  • simple and quick implementation - possible as a self-build
  • ideal for performing renovation work on old zoo enclosures / exercise areas

Elastic layer made out of wood chip

  • the interlocking and load distribution of the TTE® elements allow overbuilding of an elastic layer
  • the increased impact dampening leads to increased wear-reduction on the joints and system
  • the elastic layer insulates from the cold and promotes rapid thawing of ice and snow

HOW does TTE® work?
Build WITHOUT A SUBSTRUCTURE due to the load distribution

Due to the high own load-bearing capacity and the 4-sided interlocking system of the TTE® elements loading at a point from the hoof is distributed over a wider area. Therefore TTE® replaces the base course layer. The riding arena floor or the exercise area reinforcement are neither sealed nor compacted. There is no need for cost-intensive material and building works (one dispenses with excavation of the ground, procurement of base course layer material and installation).

HOW does TTE® work?

YOU CAN COMPLETELY FORGET: hard, dense surfaces, mud and uneven parts

NO MORE MUD

  • no sealing/compaction of the surface
  • water permeable over the long-term
  • supported by forced mechanism joints
    => build-up of mud is impossible

permanently FLAT

  • a 4-part interlocking system and wide contact surface
    => permanently flat

easy on the joints

  • installation directly onto natural soil => hard on soft
  • reduced wear on the joints and the structure
  • increased impact dampening due to the elastic layer
    => the forest floor effect

ecological & low odour

  • the retained top soil (microorganisms) filters out and decomposes pollutants
  • low odour and hygienic surfaces
  • no intervention in the ground => makes it far easier to go through the building approval process

Summary

The TTE® construction principle provides for appropriate animal husbandry and is sustainable for the environment

Standard construction with an approx. 2-3 cm covering layer

Paddock with sand

Construction for mechanical dung removal, washing-feeding area

Paddock with TTE® paving

Our recommendation:

An elastic layer for a natural springiness of the surface

A roughly 5 cm layer of wood chip can be used as an elastic layer (bedding) according to the use.  This allows a particularly strong spring effect, for pleasant, easy on the joints and low wear movement. The elastic layer also insulates from the cold.

Simple and quick to create a TTE® zoo exercise area
