What’s the best way to keep a 14,000 pound elephant in its room?
Give DRYCO a call and have us install a 4,000 pound Elephant door, of course!

This past year the Oakland Zoo challenged DRYCO’s new fencing and iron division, and asked us to build them a one-of-a-kind door. The specs were simple it had to withstand the pounding of the world largest land mammal weighing between 12,000-14,000 pounds and accommodate its 11”foot stature. Needless to say they not only conquered the challenge but “stampeded” it. Steve Figures and his crew constructed a massive door weighing in at over 4,000 pounds. The door stands at over 12 feet high by 8 feet wide. To accommodate for the Zoo keeper we installed hydraulics so the door could be opened with ease and also created a man door for the zoo keeper to use as well.

This has been one of DRYCO’s most exciting and interesting jobs yet. We are very excited with the end product and can only imagine what our fencing and iron division will be up to next… I hear the lion house a few exhibits down might need some iron work done.
