The Flow Frames are designed to fit a standard Langstroth deep super. The Flow Super has the same measurements as a Langstroth deep (8 or 10 frame) super.
The height of the Flow frame is 242mm; this perfectly fits a Langstroth deep box.
The width of the clear frame ends is set to 51mm. Flow Frames are wider than traditional Langstroth frames which means they hold more honey and the deeper cells discourage the queen from laying should you choose to experiment with no excluder.
A standard Langstroth 8-frame deep fits 6 Flow Frames. A standard Langstroth 10 frame deep fits 7 Flow Frames.
The length of a Flow Frame is adjustable. A standard Flow Frame is 480mm long; however, you can reduce the length in increments of 12mm by removing some of the comb blades. This allows you to adapt the length of the frames to many different sized hives. Or if you want to get really creative you could make a 2m long frame to go in a wall cavity, or make a short frame to insert into a hollow tree hive…

UK National Flow Frames (shorter)
A UK National fits 8 shorter Flow Frames; however, the depth of the UK National would need to be modified (we have now released a UK National sized Flow Super)
