Steel security cages can range in size from full sized room down to small boxes, but they all have the same function – keeping items or employees safe and secure.


Usually constructed using a solid framework with a steel mesh or lattice in between, security cages can be used to prevent unauthorised access to hazardous materials, to safeguard computers or goods, or to transport objects safely. They are useful in external applications where a fixed security solution is required as they can be assembled around an item, such as a gas tank, and then fixed into place. They can also be used inside office or warehouse spaces to create a secure area or separate employees from dangerous goods or equipment, as well as dissuading or slowing down attempted burglaries.

Action Handling list a large range of different security cages on our site, many of which can be customised to suit specific requirements such as paint colour or size. We also offer cages with cranage eyes, allowing for easy lifting, as well as mobile cages with fitted castors. Our gas cylinder security cage range comes with a latticed steel construction as well as a ‘Highly Flammable’ sign as standard, while our mesh panel system allows you to build up a storage system to suit your requirements.

Of course, if you can’t find exactly what you need, ask our bespoke steel department to help. That’s what the Ministry of Defence did when they required several specialised security cages for mobilisation overseas. After consultation, Action Handling were able to customise cages from our existing range to comply with their specific security requirements, delivering four modified cages in time for the deployment operation. The entire operation required a high level of Security Clearance and was managed as such, resulting in a satisfied client.

While you may not have top secret operations to manage, you probably have items in your workplace that need to be kept safe and secure. So browse our range, assess your requirements, and give us a call. for information about our bespoke steel service or any other product advice, contact our friendly sales department.
