'B Grade' Poly - grab yourself a bargain. A collection of poly hives and hive parts that don't make the usual expected grade. All will be perfectly usable but may have a few extra dents, cracks or nibbles than usual.
A 14x12 Jumbo Brood Box for National hives. Complete with metal frame runners. Can be used on our poly National hive or our wooden National hives
LIGHTWEIGHT AND DURABLE
Each hive component is made from a very high density material, 120g/litre - up to 4 times stronger than the poly used for packaging. This gives the hives great durability, able to withstand hive tools and the usual beehive inspections. It's lightweight properties will mean it is easier to handle too - great for those bad backs!
Its insulation properties also makes it ideal for beehives as less bees are required to maintain the heat required for effective brood rearing, helps improve overwintering successes and giving you an earlier spring buildup.
No faffing around with this hive. Each component is one piece moulded so there are no weak joints and very minimal assembly needed before you add your bees. Just insert the metal frame runners into the slots (provided) and give your hive a lick of paint and you are ready to go!
Ideally, you'll want your hive to be all poly to get maximum benefits from it. But no need to chuck away your wooden parts. You can use those parts on the poly hive, whether that's a wooden brood box, wooden super, or any other wooden item. The only limitation is you can't use a wooden roof over the top of a poly box.
