Full depth Langstroth box (super, deep, storey, brood-box) assembled. TanE treated. Commercial grade may have tight knots, but no gaps or holes.
Tanalise Enviro-friendly treated: The active ingredient in TanE is copper azole (up to 97%) with tubeconazole a fungicide (up to about 3%). Essentially it gets the anti-fungal anti-mould copper into the wood using water rather than a white spirit. When the woodware is initially treated, it is a light green colour, and weathers to a light greenish-brown or a light brown. So by the time most people get it, it will not have the bright green colour characteristic of copper treated wood.
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.
