The Ceracell Corflute Handy Nuc holds 6 full depth frames. We developed the Handy Nuc this way so it can hold a Ceracell 5-Frame Nuc Top Feeder. We reinforced the sides of the Handy Nuc to make the sides extra durable under the top feeders weight as well as increasing the Handy Nuc's Insulation properties. The reason the Handy Nuc can hold a 5-Frame top feeder is simply due to the width of the wood. Top Feeder rims are made from 22mm thick wood compared to the Handy Nuc corflute walls which are 10mm thick. The extra space further allows an extra frame in the Handy Nuc and is wide enough to hold the 5-Frame Top Feeder.
The Ceracell Handy Nuc comes as a complete kit, it comes with: 1 x lid, 1 x body, 6 x air vents, 1 x large coloured revolving entrance disc. These items are all in flatpack form.
The lid has a design feature that slots into place on the nuc body. A simple outward pull will unclip the lid for easy removal when inspecting. The corflute is made from UV resistant material for increased longevity in the sunlight and is extremely durable. It has the capability of having 6 vents in total. Extra vents are sold separately if you wish to use the Nuc in transportation or send bees via courier.
The Nuc comes in kit set form and will need to be assembled by hand. The corflute is very easy to fold and manipulate.
For information on how to assemble the Nuc, please see the YouTube video demonstration.
