With a mesh size of around 17mm square, our fruit cages aren't obtrusive to look at, and at first glance are barely visible! The netting used on the sides of our fruit cages is a black extruded polypropylene which is quite rigid and has a "plastic" feel to it. Supplied in a 2m wide roll, this fits nicely and easily to the sides of the fruit cage framework. The netting is held in place with cable ties along the top edge and along the external legs. Galvanised steel ground staples hold the netting at ground level about 36cm apart. The netting on the top of the fruit cage is a woven high density polyethylene (HDPE), which is quite stretchy and is pulled to the shape and size of the fruit cage roof. This is also held in place with cable ties around its perimeter. The nettings that we supply with our fruit cage kits are UV stabilised to provide a longer life and keep your crops protected.
Each fruit cage kit includes a door which is again made from the same high strength tubular steel. The door is supplied with its own pair of posts so the door can be positioned anywhere you like around the perimeter of the fruit cage. With robust hinges and magnetic closing latch, you can be confident that your door will do its job for the lifetime of the fruit cage.
We offer our Fruit Cage Kits in two ranges - Either a 2m grid (leg spacing) or a 2.5m grid. The 2m grid is obviously stronger and the netting will also be better supported by the closer distance between the framework bars. But for most circumstances, our 2.5m grid Fruit Cage Kits are more than adequate and will cover your area a little more economically.
