SN4 Plastic National Frames / Super Frame / National shallow
They are delivered to you already made and just need foundation. To do this just prise the frame apart with your hive tool, slide your chosen foundation into position and close the two sides back together. No more nails needed and ready to use within minutes,
They can be cleaned very easily by simply boiling, a plastic bag in the deep freeze or even cleaned through a dishwasher therefore making them ready to re-use and are much easier than your wooden frames.
They are produced in the UK for Beehive Bits.
The price is per frame.
Long lasting. Quick and easy to use and clean.
I have been using plastic frames for nearly 20 years and am still using the first ones I bought. They are very easy to use. Click open, add foundation and click shut. I clean them in hot soapy water and a kitchen scrubbing brush, rinse and pop in a bucket of sterilising solution.
They hold unwired foundation well for cut comb. I dread the day I cannot buy them.
