Working in conjunction with environmental specialists, ACO has utilized its extensive knowledge of surface drainage to develop a proven amphibian tunnel and drift fencing system.
The first tunnel systems were installed in Europe and North America in 1987. Since this date, numerous sites have utilized the ACO tunnel and fencing system. In comparison to the provision of replacement spawning grounds, wildlife guidance system are readily accepted by amphibians. The animals are led safely to their habitats: amphibians, reptiles, and small mammals can safely cross under roads with a tunnel system and are prevented from reaching the road surface by surrounding fencing - a measure to protect both animals and humans.
ACO has products and services to help business comply with environmental pollution regulations. These products are designed from a variety of materials to facilitate installation, operation and maintenance.
Tunnel Entrance Unit - connects the fencing system to the tunnel without gaps
Design - A middle dividing wall guides amphibians and other small animals into the tunnel and prevents them from passing across the entrance.
Recycled Plastic - Resistant and safe material
Optional Swallow Tail - further assists with the funneling of the amphibians into the tunnel
Wildlife Fence can be used on it's own to contain animals within a specific area, or added to the entrance to guide animals into the tunnel.
Curved Fence Shape - offers protection from strong sunlight and prevents animals from climbing over the protected side, but allows animals to climb from the road and drop to safety.
Posts - support the open side and prevent the system from collapsing.
Nails - Hold the base securely in the ground and backfilling with dirt prevents animals from digging under the fence.
Recycled Plastic with profiled ribs - Lightweight and strong material that is easy to ship and install.
