Obviously, it depends on the shots you need, but simple dowels painted with a metallic finish should do the trick for most conventional "jail" scenes.

If you have any metal tubes/pipes around use those. Again depends how you want to shoot the scene, but you can get away by sticking a few short metal pipes up in front of the lens. Shouldn't be too hard to find a disused door that you could use - building material suppliers sometimes offer recycled materials, people refurnish their homes and replace their old doors.
