The hive mat (inner cover, crown board, or ceiling) is an essential part of the Langstroth hive system.  Without the hive mat, the lid would be propolised down and impossible to get off.  It also facilitates improved ventilation in hot weather.  The hive mat mounted on the top of the hive is placed on top of four match sticks (or something of similar diameter) leaving a 2 mm gap above the hive and under the lid.

The hive mat board is also often made with a slot cut out of one end or one side, on one side of the board.  This allows the board to be used as a "splitter" board.  When splitting a strong hive into two hives, often a splitter board is used, with the new split being mounted on top of the old colony with the slot forming the new hive's entrance.  This is oriented on the opposite side of the old colony's entrance.  Later at the beekeeper's convenience, the new hive can be moved and mounted on a conventional floor.

The 22 mm wide rim hive mat is the standard size surrounding a piece of weathertex 9.5mm thick.  One side has a basic bee space depth of 8 mm, and the balance of the width is on the other side of the board.

This 50 mm wide rim hive mat has a 9.5mm weathertex board, the absolute best moisture proof board available.  It is also deep underneath.  Some beekeepers may use the extra depth to facilitate the application of thymol gel (Apiguard is available for sale from Ceracell) on hives with no honey supers in place.  In this instance the Apiguard trays would likely be too deep, but using the measured scoop of gel on a pad from the 3 kg tub of Apiguard would work well in this way.
