Crafted from premium Western red cedar, using precision manufacturing.
We decided to use Western red cedar (Thuja plicata) as it is a beautiful timber with a remarkably fine and stable grain structure. It is is a highly durable and naturally weatherproof timber.
Apply a coat or two of tung oil to bring out the lustre of this beautiful timber, and help it last even longer.
Timber included in this product is made from naturally grown resources - each hive will be slightly different in character. Please see our FAQ for more information on our natural timber characteristics.
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.
