FREE Shipping to Continental United States.
All of our PVC reptile enclosures are shipped unassembled to minimize shipping costs and prevent damage in transit. We build and disassemble each individual reptile enclosure to ensure a perfect fit.
Assembly is very easy and takes about 15 minutes and requires only a Phillips screwdriver, but I would recommend a drill to speed things up.
Please check our current enclosure lead times before placing your order.
Each PVC enclosure is handmade; visible variations or imperfections may be present however they have no effect on the functionality of the enclosure. All custom reptile cage sizes are approximate.
We do not recommend the use of ceramic heat emitters in our custom PVC reptile enclosures. There are much safer and much more natural options for your new PVC reptile cage such as;
- Heat projector lamps(Arcadia Reptile Deep Heat Projector)
- Basking Bulb(Arcadia Reptile Halogen Basking Spotlight)
- Radiant heat panels(Pro Products)
Always use a thermostat and thermometer to monitor and regulate temperatures in your enclosure.Spyder Roboticsmakes excellent and very safe thermostats.
Why can't I use a ceramic heat emitter in my enclosure?
We don’t recommend ceramic heat emitters because they’re not safe for the animal, they can easily overheat and cause injury to your reptile. Some safer options would be radiant heat panels, basking bulbs or heat projector bulbs. We use Arcadia heat projector bulbs in some of our enclosures and MegaRay bulbs in others, both options work great and you'll have to find the safe option that works best for you. Our enclosures also insulate very well so you’ll need a much lower wattage bulb than you would in a glass tank. We always recommend using a high quality thermostat to regulate and monitor your temperatures and checking them with an infrared temp gun as well to ensure the proper temps. We also recommend checking over your enclosure and all heating and light sources weekly to ensure they're all in good condition.
Can you drill a hole of my misting system?
Since each misting system is a little different and each person would like it placed in a different location, we don't drill holes for them. One of our favorite things about our PVC enclosures is the ease of customization, the material is great to work with so you can make modifications to make it your own. With a household drill and drill bit you can drill any necessary holes for your mister in the exact location of your choosing.
Do you sell, install, or include radiant heat panels?
At this time we don't sell, install, or include radiant heat panels. They do however work great in our enclosures and easily install with a couple of screws to secure one to the ceiling of your enclosure.
Are the enclosures stackable?
Some cages are stackable, but you would need a stacking kit between the two units to allow the enclosures to properly ventilate. We do not recommend stacking bio-active enclosures.
We have designed and created our stacking kits to allow you to stack your cages while allowing proper lighting and ventilation, and perfectly blend into your enclosure.
Enclosures 4'x2'x2' and smaller can be stacked. We recommend using strong shelves such as pallet racking to stack larger enclosures.
When I’m ordering light fixtures, why can’t I select the placement?
To allow for maximum customization; the light fixtures come with screws that allow you to place them anywhere on the top of the enclosure.
What lighting options are available and how do I know which is best for me?
Because everyone’s lighting needs are different, we created our cages with a variety of lighting options to easily customize the perfect enclosure for your needs.
Light Fixtures: With ceramic light fixtures inside your enclosure you can create the perfect temps and select how many fixtures you would like. These fixtures can accommodate up to a 250 watt basking or heat bulb or you can use LED bulbs if you just want to brighten up the enclosure without creating more heat. While the fixture can accommodate up to a 250 watt bulb you will not need nor do we recommend a bulb of that wattage, the enclosures insulate very well so you'll need a much lower watt bulb than in other enclosures. We use Arcadia Pro Ceramic Lamp Holder & Bracket in our enclosures. These may ship separate and require installation in the enclosure. Always use a high quality thermostat to monitor and regulate your temperatures.
Screens: 9” square screens are available for our cages and allow you to place a dome light on top to provide heat and lighting while keeping your reptile protected and away from the light source.
Belly Heat: A belly heat groove is a 10”x10” recess on the underside of the enclosure. This allows you to place a thermostat probe & heat mat underneath your reptile cage. This pairs nicely with our LED lighting and is great for snakes. Heat mats can be found here.
*Please note: the options above do not provide UVB, if your reptile requires UVB you’ll need to purchase a UVB bulb & fixture separately and install it yourself. You can also use a MegaRay bulb which provides both heat & UVB together. This can be used in our light fixtures and works great. We unfortunately don’t carry MegaRay products at this time but they can be found on Amazon. You can also use a T5 fixture and UVB bulb as pictured below.
22" T5 Fixture: Our T5 fixtures come unmounted without a UVB bulb, we have T5 fixtures and Arcadia UVB bulbs available in our store. We include mounting clips, screws, and instructions to secure the fixture to your enclosure. These easily mount to the ceiling of the enclosure with the 2 screws & mounting brackets provided.
Do the enclosures come assembled? If not, how difficult are they to assemble?
Our cages ship flat packed, to help save money on shipping fees and to prevent damage in the shipping process. We designed our enclosures to be easily assembled. A phillips screwdriver is all that’s needed for assembly. In addition to written directions, an assembly instruction video will be available on our website.
Do you offer any other colors like white, tan, or grey?
At this time black is the only color PVC option we have available.
My enclosure arrived and has a plastic like smell....is this normal?
Yes, totally normal. Just like that new car smell your new enclosure will have an odor for a few days. We suggest getting it all setup and cleaned and allowing it to air out for a few days before moving your animal in. We use all safe and non-toxic materials to create each enclosure.
How does the size compare to a 40-gallon breeder tank?
A standard 40-gallon breeder tank is 36”x18”x16”. Kages 48”x24”x24” is equivalent to approximately 110-gallons. This would make the Kages enclosure almost three times larger by volume.
Is the reptile enclosure sealed?
We use a non-porous PVC that’s moisture resistant. We recommend purchasing reptile safe silicone so you can seal the seams. Silicone is optional however we recommended it for use with bio-active setups and snakes. Moisture from general use and a bio-active setup will not cause issues with the enclosure. However it is not waterproof like an aquarium meaning it will not hold water.
You can purchase silicone at your local hardware store or on Amazon here.
Can I place loose substrate in the cage?
Absolutely! We have designed our reptile enclosures to allow for adequate substrate. Our smaller enclosures have a 3” substrate board, our 2 series enclosures have a 4" substrate board, our 3 series enclosures have an 11" substrate board and our 4 series enclosures have a 16” substrate board allowing room to place the perfect amount of substrate for your reptile.
Can I use this as a bio-active enclosure?
YES! We have several of our personal enclosures setup bio-active and LOVE it! Our enclosures do not require any special litter guards or plastic liners to be used bioactive. Kages enclosures all come bioactive ready! Are favorite bio-active products are from The Bio Dude.
Can I attach a hammock to the enclosure?
Yes, you can attach hammocks, and shelves, to your cage either by screwing them into the wall directly or by using 3M Command Hooks.
Which countries do you ship to?
We ship to the continental United States for free.
How do I care for my Reptile Kages enclosure?
Here are some general suggestions for caring for your enclosure: These are all handcrafted products and wear over time is to be expected. It is important that you take care of your enclosure.

ABOUT OUR KAGES
What makes Kages™ custom reptile enclosures different?
Our custom reptile cages are handmade in the United States from the highest quality materials.
We provide our most popular reptile cage options on our website, customizing your custom reptile cage is just a few clicks away. At Kages™ we believe there is no one size fits all solution to reptile enclosures, so we decided that we would build them custom and build them quickly without any compromises. Here at Kages™ we make PVC enclosure customization easy, all it takes is a few clicks, just head over to the size of the enclosure you are interested in, select your features, then place your order, and we will get to work quickly building your new PVC enclosure so your pet can have the home of its dreams. We have built a variety of awesome reptile enclosures, from small 12”x12”x12” enclosures for hatchlings to 8’x4’x4’ enclosures for Tegus. If you need a custom sized reptile cage feel free to contact us to design your custom enclosure.
Our custom reptile enclosures can be used for any environment from dry arid species like uromastyx, bearded dragons, and Ackie Monitors to extremely humid species like green tree pythons, Rainbow Boas, and much more. We at Reptile Kages™ designed our reptile enclosures to be used in a variety of ways from completely sterile setups to full bioactive setups, we encourage fellow reptile keepers to look into the benefits of bio active enclosures with full spectrum lighting. Our Kages Custom Reptile Enclosures™ were meticulously developed with no aspects overlooked from an animal's point of view. Take our sliding polycarbonate doors for example, our PVC enclosure doors were developed to minimize stress on the inhabitant by opening in the front because many animals perceive anything from above as a threat and it invokes a predator prey response causing flighty and aggressive behavior because they believe their life is in danger. We continued on from an animal's point of view and we developed our custom reptile cages with bioactivity in mind, with that said, we understand that this is not practical for everyone or every application all we ask at Kages Custom Reptile Enclosures™ is for keepers to create an enriching environment with full spectrum lighting and heat that encourages naturalistic behaviors. To maximize you animal husbandry check out these incredible in-depth feeding and lighting guides by Arcadia Reptile.
We provide the instructions, screws and screw covers. You’ll just need a phillips screwdriver and about 20 minutes to assemble your custom reptile enclosure.
A WIDE VARIETY OF ENCLOSURE SIZES, STYLES & OPTIONS:
As we know animals and specifically reptiles are born into a vast world with huge enriching environments. It is our ethical duty as keepers to provide the closest thing possible to their natural environment that's why we made our custom PVC reptile cages in various sizes suitable for any species. Our 4’x2’x2’ Kages™ reptile enclosures are equivalent to roughly a volume of 110 gallons! The days of heavy glass 40 gallon breeders or that snake tank that's in your grandma's basement are long gone with our 4x2x2 custom PVC enclosure. The Kages™ 4x2x2 premium PVC reptile enclosure weighs in at only 53 lbs. Our PVC reptile cages are nearly 3x larger than a traditional glass forty gallon breeder. Now compare that to our Kages™ 8x4x4 Monster PVC enclosure with around 898 gallons and just over 30 square feet of floor space! The wide open spaces of these enclosures give your reptile the ultimate luxury treatment they deserve when paired with bio activity and full spectrum lighting.
Kages™ uses the highest quality materials paired with ethical husbandry and animal safety in mind to ensure our reptile cages outperform the competition with our modern beauty, longevity, energy savings, and ease of use for the keeper. In just a few clicks you can have your ideal reptile enclosure fully customized. With our PVC reptile cages you'll maintain your temperature while using less electricity and smaller bulbs. We designed the venting on our PVC enclosures to function without wasted energy due to heat loss like you would find in a PVC cage made out of thin ¼” material. Some older materials like glass aquariums, or other poor insulating materials can cause significant heat loss that results in wasted energy and an increased electricity bill this problem can be exacerbated by a screen top style tank. The sliding polycarbonate doors on our premium PVC reptile enclosures are stronger than acrylic, more temperature and humidity resistant than acrylic feel free to check out the info below for details. Our attention to detail paired with our sliding polycarbonate doors on most of our PVC enclosures provide a much safer alternative to the traditional screen top reptile cages, the days of top opening snake cages like the ones you would see at your local pet store as a kid are long gone.
At Reptile Kages™ we strive to use the highest quality products for our premium PVC enclosures that's why we use rigid expanded PVC & polycarbonate for our reptile caging.
Our Premium Reptile Enclosures™ are made from ½” rigid expanded PVC - a lightweight closed-cell foam.
Rigid expanded PVC is better at retaining heat:
With our PVC reptile cages you'll maintain your temperature while using less electricity than glass aquariums or wood enclosures.
Rigid expanded PVC absorbs vibration and sound:
This decreases the sounds from daily life in your home.
Rigid expanded PVC is better:
PVC is an excellent choice for your reptile enclosure, it’s water resistant, non-corrosive, and lightweight.
Our custom reptile enclosures feature clean and modern style venting on the upper back wall or sides.
Polycarbonate doors are safer:
Our sliding polycarbonate doors are 250 times stronger than float glass and 30 times stronger than acrylic. They won’t shatter and cut your reptile or yourself like float glass will. Polycarbonate is resistant to temperatures of -100 to +120°C. Polycarbonate also has a higher resistance to humidity than acrylic.
We strive to provide the highest quality materials in every aspect of the enclosure to create a safe home for your reptile.
The polycarbonate doors in our Premium Reptile Enclosures feature:
- Extreme impact strength: 250 times the impact strength of float glass and 30 times that of acrylic
- Resists temperatures of -100 to +120°C
- High resistance to humidity
- High optical clarity
- Won't shatter like float glass
Here at Kages™ we develop all of our products with the animals best interest at heart. All of our Kages™ Custom PVC enclosures were developed by animal enthusiasts not plastic or manufacturing companies that are chasing a dollar.
