Classic Steel Vegetable Cages

W M James provides complete steel vegetable cages to protect your precious fruit from birds, pests and other wildlife.

Our steel veg cages are designed with a strong steel powder-coated frame and classic joint system that is much stronger than our aluminium counterparts.

How To Install Steel Vegetable Cages

Simple to put up, our steel cages are a popular fixture amongst gardeners! Just a few tools are required to erect; a stepladder, a screwdriver and a pair of sharp scissors! A second pair of hands may also prove useful.

Our steel veg cages are supplied with 20mm OD steel uprights that are easily connected to one another and are spiked at ground level allowing them to be easily inserted into the ground.

Steel earth base plates help with this process to provide extra stability.

Our top rails are also powder coated and connected via a mushroom cap jointing system that is very easy to configure - even when the ground is uneven or slopping.

Like our aluminium vegetable cages, our 2m high fruit 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.

Side nets are made from 18mm extruding square mesh netting which sits neatly along the framework. Ground pegs allow you to tie back any loose netting.

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

Steel Vegetable Cage Contents
  • 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 - secure 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.
