In: Frequently Asked Questions Viewed: 44,765 times

Since the launch on Indiegogo, the Flow Hive has been in a constant state of evolution, with innovation at the forefront of the design process.

We are constantly looking at ways to improve our product, finding and utilising sustainable timber sources and now, for the first time, we have introduced in-house timber manufacturing, allowing us to continue to find a better way.

The use of various different timber manufacturers on this journey has resulted in some minor sizing differences between our Flow Hive models, however, these should not impact on the ability to use your Flow products in conjunction with existing Langstroth equipment.
