Purchased a Flow Hive 2 Brood Box & Super separately, but realised that you'd benefit from also having the Flow Hive 2+ Base?
This upgrade kit is just what you need.
Western Red Cedar timber base, multipurpose pest management tray, metal screen, rear vented cover, spirit levels to create the optimal slope for harvesting, landing board, an Integrated Adjustable Hive Stand, and Flow Ant Guards™.
Priced at $199.
*This accessory is best used with the Flow Hive 2 Brood Box, however, can be used with any Flow Hive or Brood Box model – please be aware that there may be some discrepancies in the width of the box to the base.
What size do I need?
Confused about what size to get? Don't worry we get it! Our Flow Frames are slightly wider than traditional wooden brood frames, so for an 8 frame Langstroth hive, 6 Flow Frames are used to completely fill the super.
The 6 frame base is compatible with:
- Flow Hive 2 – 6 frame
- 8 frame Langstroth beehives
The 7 frame base is compatible with:
- Flow Hive 2 – 7 frame
- 10 frame Langstroth beehives
TIMBER - WESTERN RED CEDAR
Crafted from premium Western Red Cedar, using precision manufacturing.
We are using Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata) as it is a beautiful timber with a remarkably fine and stable grain structure. It is a highly durable and naturally weatherproof timber.
We recommend applying a coat of weatherproof sealant 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.
This product is the same width as a 6 frame Flow Hive/Super, or an 8 frame Langstroth hive/super/brood box.
More precise dimensions are available here in our FAQ.
