Authentic Sea Life Exhibits

zoos and aquariums exhibitsCreating a realistic experience for your visitors is a primary concern when developing or modifying an exhibit. Dolphins, penguins and other shore dwelling life require wave action to simulate their natural environment. The correct wave motion can improve water quality and increase the efficiency of the exhibit’s life systems.

Coral Reef & Kelp Environments

Coral AquariumsExhibit design is as much about creating authentic surroundings as the species being displayed. Beyond the aesthetic effect of realistic side-to-side movement of kelp strands, live coral requires continuous water flow to transport nutrients while carrying waste away. Waves perform a vital support function in this ecosystem.

Scale Modeling & Testing

Scale Modeling for zoos and aquariumsPrior to actual equipment design and manufacture of a specialty wave system, our wave technicians build and test a working scale model of the exhibit. This hands-on approach clearly defines the specific equipment system requirements and assures the client that their desired effect can be created.

Specialty Wave Features
