Full depth Langstroth box (super, deep, storey, brood-box). Flatpack. Untreated. Our High Grade Commercial Supers are a smooth and professionally finished product. Some may have tight knots, but no gaps or holes.
This is for 'flatpack' components - assembly by you is required. You will have to supply your own nails or staples.
You may want to consider treating your woodware before assembly, or after. We have available for sale Metalex, which comes in either a clear or green timber treatment option. Metalex is a great timber treatment and we have instructions on how to dilute the solution to a beehive recommended dosage. Simply ask one of a friendly staff. We also have paraffin wax.
The full depth super is generally used as a brood box, this means that the queen has free roaming ability within this box to lay. The full depth box accommodates a larger frame compared to a 3/4 depth box creating more space for the queen to lay and maximise the hives population. Some Beekeepers prefer a complete full depth system, it allows greater space for honey but you'll find chugging around hundreds of full depth boxes full of honey becomes quite a mission. This is why beekeepers generally use full depth boxes for raising brood and then using 3/4 depth boxes for honey as it will weigh less when the honey flow ends.
