Frame Size

6 Frame

The standard 6-frame Flow Hive (equivalent to 8-frame Langstroth equipment) is our most popular hive size used around the world and is suitable for most climates. Harvest up to 18kg of honey when the Flow Super is full.

7 Frame
For very cold climates, short beekeeping seasons or for those who would like extra honey yield, you may prefer to use the 7-frame version (equivalent to 10 frame Langstroth equipment).
With an extra Flow Frame in the super, your bees are able to capture and store more of the season when a nectar flow is on. Harvest an extra 3kg of honey – when your Flow Super is full, that’s a whopping 21kg of honey! More honey for you, more honey for the bees – a delicious win-win.


Made in Australia from durable, highest quality food-grade, BPA and BPS-free plastic, Flow Frames have taken the beekeeping world by storm.

We have worked hard to ensure that our Flow Frames are manufactured from the very best food grade materials.

The clear viewing ends of the frames, as well as the honey tube and caps, are made from a virgin food grade copolyester. The manufacturers have assured us that it's not only BPA-free, but it is not manufactured with bisphenol-S or any other bisphenol compounds.

The manufacturers also advise that third-party labs have tested this material and the results have demonstrated that it is free of estrogenic and androgenic activity. The centre frame parts are made from a virgin food grade polypropylene which is also free from any bisphenol compounds and is widely accepted as one of the safest plastics for food contact.

Plastics have been used for many years in beehives for both brood and honey combs and have not been found to have a negative impact on bee colonies.

Store Flow Frames in a dry, cool, dark location out of direct sunlight when not in use. You can find further information in our FAQs.
