Our 4 Bay x 2 Bay Fruit Cage measures 7.82m wide x 3.91m long x 2.14m high (25ft 7in x 12ft 9in x 7ft)  and is manufactured from 25.4mm Z35 galvanised high tensile steel. Supplied with seven end stabiliser bars which are fitted to each corner and one door making our Fruit Cages exceptionally strong structures. Check you are getting end stabiliser bars with competitor designs – these are key to structural integrity!

Each module measures 195.5cm x 195.5cm - ensuring maximum strength. Beware of others offering modules up to 250cm x 250cm; less steel = less strength!

Our joining fixtures are manufactured from galvanised cast iron - no plastic or welded steel fixings, ensuring a long life with a high corrosion resistance.

The supplied extruded high strength (17mm x 17mm) polypropylene side mesh and the super light double knitted roof mesh (18mm x 18mm) are great for protection from flocks of smaller birds, the unwanted attention of pigeons, or even the pest threat of butterflies.

Our Fruit Cage design is supplied with ground staples to position the net into the ground.

Good solid fruit cage.Took a while to erect it as I kept finding stones in the ground where I wanted the posts and my field has a slight slope. (My builder and his wrecking bar sorted that out.) Erecting the cage itself is reasonably straightforward, easier with two people (you need another allen key) but possible with one. Being a 5'2" female the time consuming bit was constantly going up and down the step ladder, moving it a few feet, up and down again etc etc.(I must buy a pair of stilts and learn to use them!) I'm surprised that the instructions say put the roof netting on before the side netting, yet remove the roof in winter in case of snow. I put the side netting up first and then the roof. I bought 'S' hooks to attach the roof netting to the side netting. Their instructions say wrap the netting around the poles and secure with the arrow ties - that would be a nightmare. I did that for the side netting - not easy. Putting the side netting up first did mean that the roof netting kept catching on it, but it wasn't difficult to stretch it out, just time consuming with a step ladder. I would suggest (with hindsight!) marking the centre of the roof netting first (with a bit of string?) and working from the middle to the corners, stretching as you go. The problem with starting at one edge is that being netting, when you stretch it in one direction it is going to shrink in the other direction, so fixing it all along one edge and then stretching it out means that you will have to keep adjusting the corners to allow it to stretch properly. Once I got it roughly in position I fixed the middles on opposite sides and then worked my way alternately to the ends, finishing with the corners. Much easier to do with S hooks. Once finished I then added a few net clips to make sure it stays put. (I bought the S hooks and net clips elsewhere.) I would have given it 5 stars except for the weird instructions/method of fixing the nets, and the pathetic door catch (a bit of velcro) which is fiddly and won't last 5 minutes.
