'My Size' Tubes & Panels

'My Size' Tubes & Panels

Can't see the size of sleeve you want? Don't despair! Netting tubes or panels can be sewn to any size you require in black or white nylon, or white super-fine polyester.

To order simply Email us to let us know your requirements and we will get back to you with a quote. You're welcome to send us a diagram if this is easier. Don't forget to let us know whether you would like to use super-fine polyester (white only) or nylon (black or white).


Tubes of diameter: The tube is supplied at c.59" (1.5m) long, including the material selvedge, and once delivered you can cut this to provide multiple sleeves at whatever lengths you choose. We calculate the fabrication cost by rounding up the cost of the material required to the nearest metre and adding a one-off seaming fee of £3.00 per tube for nylon, or £4.50 per tube for polyester. Final finished dimensions are subject to +/-2.5% tolerance.

Flat panels: we calculate the cost by charging for netting to the nearest complete material width and adding £2.00 for each metre of seamed nylon, or £3.00 for each metre of seamed polyester. The material is provided oversize, so you can trim to fit. Our material is 1.5m wide, so panels more than 1.5m in width will need one or more seams.

Our Specialist Design Service

Insectopia offers a bespoke design service, enabling larger or more complex cage designs to be produced for your specialist need using our standard range of materials.

Please email us with your specific requirements, including any photographs, descriptions and dimensions of the product you wish us to produce, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

You may also wish to order a Sample Pack of our netting and fabric, so you can see the types of materials we work with, and decide which are most appropriate for your needs.

Please make sure you have read our terms and conditions with respect to the manufacture of bespoke items (in the 'Info' section at the top right of your screen). Insectopia reserve the right to either accept or decline any given design request. We levy a design fee of £20 + VAT for the first hour or part hour of our work on the design of your product, then charge £10 + VAT for each subsequent hour or part hour, with a maximum total charge of £50 + VAT. If your item is similar to one of our existing products and/or no significant design work is required, the design fee may be waived (at our discretion). Normally it takes 1-3 hours for us to design a cage ready for production.



You can see some examples of our work in our photo gallery below.
