Our most popular unassembled commercial-grade deep hive bodies for your brood chamber. Tight, solid knots, small pitch pockets, and small, tight cracks are acceptable for this commercial-grade 10-frame deep hive body. Imperfections that interfere with the box’s structure and functionality are unacceptable.
Black knots larger than a quarter dollar are not acceptable for these boxes. Fingers and rabbit ears must be free of knots. Knots with cracks going all the way through, as long as the knot is solid, are acceptable.
Considerations for Using a 10-Frame Hive
Small knots in the hand hold are acceptable unless in the thin part of the hand hold. Black edge knots or planer skips with ½" (1.27 cm) thickness or less can be missing from the top or bottom of the board.
Use 9⅛" Frames and 8½" Foundation.
Nails not included. See related products below.
What unassembled frame box size is right for me?
Did you know the only difference in measurements between 10 frame and 8 frame boxes is the width? 8-frame equipment is narrower than 10-frame, and not always compatible with other 8 frame equipment as dimensions vary slightly by manufacturers. 10-frame equipment offers more space for brood and honey production when compared to 8-frame equipment.
