Hexagonal Smart Frames are the workhorses of our Honeycomb Hives System and are used in all Hexagonal Horizontal Hives and Fold-Hives.

Made of clear pine, these frames easily disassemble for quick bench work. There are six parts per frame which easily go together with half-lap joinery, secured by nylon screws.

The simplicity of these three part frames belies the versatility they deliver 

A 1/8" x 3/8" deep continuous groove/slot around the inside of the frame accepts either hexagonal shaped (template provided) foundation (plastic or wax), or wooden or wax slips (1/8" x 3/4") to make frames ready for natural comb.   

These frames come standard with nylon knurled-knob, threaded screws which both secure the frame parts together and also serve as frame spacers in the hives. These screws auto-space frames to typical recommended spacing of 1 3/8" or, by including a 1/8" washer, the width can be expanded to 1 1/2" often used in honey supers.

Honeycomb Hive Universal Hexagonal Smart Frames come in both Standard (Fold-Hive) and Deep (Horizontal) sizes. Frame parts are loose packed with necessary screws, Knurled Knob Screws and Spacers.

Foundation is not included.  May be purchased here 

Cases contain parts for x 7 frames, also sold in Master Packs of 4 cases = x 28
