NEW DESIGN: These are the frames that work in our current design Modified Warré Hive. The top bars of these frames measure 317mm (12 1/2") long and the total height is 202mm (7 15/16"). They will work in any and all hive bodies that are built to official Warré specifications, which means that the hive bodies must have 300mm (about 11 13/16") inside dimensions (square), rebates that are 1cm x 1cm (about 3/8" x 3/8"), and a total height of 210mm (about 8 1/4").

You can convert any Warré (top bar) hive to a Modified Warré (framed) hive by simply purchasing and installing these frames. You may also want to purchase and install Metal Frame Rests.

OLD DESIGN: These are the frames that work in the Modified Warré Hives that we manufactured before November 2016. The measurements are exactly the same as described above, except that the total height is 232mm (9 1/8") instead of 202mm (7 15/16"). The old design Modified Warré Hive bodies were 240mm tall (9 7/16"). If these are the frames you need, be sure to select "Old Design" from the drop-down menu above.

If you're assembling the frames yourself, nails will be provided.

Frames do not include beeswax or foundation and foundation pins.
