Enclosures can be a very important part in the installation of a backflow assembly outdoors. It provides protection from vandals, weather, improves the appearance and completes the installation. Putting an enclosure over your assembly can also prolong the life of your backflow preventer and prevent unnecessary repairs caused by freezing, or from overheating by the sun. Trying to cover an assembly with insulation and duct tape can be unsightly, and can actually help the assembly to freeze!!! Do the job right with an enclosure made for backflow assemblies.
We recommend this cage! Everything you need to install it except cement comes with this cage. It has the frame for the cement with it and the mounting hardware is already installed in the frame. There are no additional items you need to buy to install this. We have had contractors tell us it is the easiest cage to install. I have not been able to find a better cage for the money.
They come in several standard sizes and offer custom made cages also.

The Strong Box cage has become popular this year. The feature that people like is that the lock is at the top of the cage on the narrow end. When the lock is removed the end lays down to the ground and the rest of the cage tilts over to the other end of the cage and lays on the ground providing full access to the assembly. An advantage of the lock at the top is that it is not in a lock guard on the ground that water can build up in and cause the lock to rust.
