That will not be large enough for 4 iguanas. What will be the height? It sounds like a large cage but really 4 iguanas is too many to keep together unless you have tons of space. Even then, I wouldn’t keep males together. I’d only keep females that get along together.
i gave the wrong size 8ft height 3.5 mts wide x 4ft i already have 2 in the same vivarium and trust me they are like love birds but i am going to bring other 2 thats why i am doing a bigger vivarium and i tought of that if they fight i will saparate them dont worry i will never let them fight.

I agree with Xta, cage is too small for 4. Especially with having two adults and then two babies...not good. Too much of a size differnce. Even when they get older...you will never be able to stop them from fighting because you can’t be around every second of the day, and it only takes a matter of seconds for iguanas to damage one another. Also...I know you say your iguanas are like love birds, and they may stay like that, but males are known to get more aggressive as they get older...to the point of attacking their owners...never underestimate a large lizard that can inflict serious damage on you or its mate.
they are 3 years old, so your telling me they are ok together cuz they bin toghther from wen they was babys? and i know that is not good putting babys with adults cuz i have a vivarium that is for small igs ready, still i think the eggs are not fertile cuz thay shrunk a bit any way thanks and send you later

I’m kind of just saying that iguanas are still wild animals as far as instincts go. Your iguanas can get along for years with no problems. Then one day you may come home to a dead or injured iguana. Iguanas have been known to turn aggressive on other iguanas and owners. A lady from this site had an adult iguana that would try to attack all of her family members and reptiles, but this same iguana was one of the tamests iguanas she had prior to this "hormone" change.
I’m just looking out for you and your iguanas safety. So if you keep two together...make sure there is enough room and places for your iguanas to get away or hide.
