William James' classic steel cages are strong, sturdy and very simple to put up - in fact, the only tools that you will require are a stepladder, a screwdriver and a pair of sharp scissors! A second pair of hands may also prove useful. The tried and tested design provides a stable framework to protect your valuable plants.

These cages are supplied with high quality 20mm OD steel uprights 2.36m high overall (2m above ground). They are spiked at the bottom to allow them to be easily pushed into the soil and the steel earth plates both aid this process and provide extra stability when the cage is in place.

With top rails manufactured from the same high quality material, all the steelwork is powder coated green for an attractive, hard wearing finish. Our mushroom cap jointing system makes the cages extremely easy to install - even on sloping or uneven ground.

The 2m high cage includes a 1m wide door as standard, giving easy wheelbarrow access. Extra doors can also be ordered if required and the door position can be specified. Separate side and roof netting and all necessary fixtures and fittings complete the package.

The side net is a rigid black extruded 18mm square mesh which attaches neatly to the frame with releasable cable ties. Ground pegs secure the side net at ground level to give a smart and tidy finish.

For the top net we use strong black Knotless Polypropylene netting with a 20mm square mesh. It is tailored to the size of your cage with ample overhang to attach to the side netting using the S-hooks supplied.

Cages include

  • Extra heavy duty 20mm OD x 1.6mm thick steel uprights and top rails - traditional powder coated green paint finish.
  • Steel L shaped upright ground plates - aid installation and provide additional stability.
  • One 1m wide door that opens both ways with door catch - additional doors are available upon request.
  • Mushroom caps with bolts to connect uprights and top rails - stronger and more versatile than plastic connectors most competitors supply and they allow the top netting to slide easily across the top of the cage.
  • Plastic S-hooks - make removing/replacing the roof net straightforward.
  • Heavy duty cable ties - releasable and reusable to allow for easy removal of the side netting.
  • Galvanised steel ground pegs - secures netting neatly to the ground leaving no gaps for pests to go under.
  • 20mm Knotless Polypropylene roof netting - supplied 0.5m bigger than your cage to allow for a 0.25m overhang all around. Strong, long lasting and UV stabilised.
  • 18mm extruded polythene side netting - Supplied on a 2m high roll for quick and easy installation. Strong, long lasting and UV stabilised.

What are the main differences between the aluminium and the steel cages?

  • Steel cages are powder coated green while the aluminium are self coloured (silver).
  • Our powder coated finish is extremely robust and durable, but will require touching up should it become damaged over the years.
  • Aluminium cages generally require less ongoing maintenance.
  • Aluminium is lighter than steel, but is still strong enough to provide a robust framework.
  • The aluminium uprights come with a 360mm deep galvanised steel ground socket while the bottom 360mm of the steel uprights push straight into the ground. Both are 2m above the ground, giving adequate height inside the cages for most people.
  • The netting and fittings for both types of cage are identical.

How easy are your cages to assemble?

  • All our cages come with full instructions and a useful plan diagram. It is generally easier to assemble a fruit cage with 2 people. Of course if you have any difficulties or need extra help or advice we are available on the telephone or via email during normal working hours (Monday to Friday).

Do you offer larger fruit cages than those shown in your price matrix?

  • Yes, because our cages are modular we can quote cages up to any size; please contact us for a quotation

Are your cages suitable for use on uneven or sloping ground?

  • Our mushroom cap jointing system provides the flexibility required when cages need to be installed on this sort of surface. Unlike fixed plastic joints, our bolt and cap design is adjustable so that the top rails can follow the profile of the ground.

We require an irregular shaped fruit cage, can you offer this?

  • Yes we can quote bespoke cages, please contact us for a special quotation. It would be useful to have a rough diagram either posted or emailed across to speed up the quotation process!

Are your cages suitable for other applications?

  • We have supplied cages for use as pet runs, poultry enclosures and even aviaries (where the birds are kept inside rather than outside!) If you have an alternative use for one of our cages please feel free to contact us.

Can you deliver outside of the UK?

  • Yes, we offer competitive transport rates to all worldwide destinations. Please contact us for a quotation.

Do I need to be in when the cage is delivered?

  • We use a national carrier to deliver our cages to UK mainland addresses.
  • We can contact you on the day that the cage is despatched so that you know which day it will be delivered.
  • We can also request that a cage is left in a secure place if this is appropriate.

If you have any special requirements these can be entered online at the time of ordering, or give us a call and we will do our best to help.
