National Polystyrene Hives

 

 

Our British National beehives were designed, developed and are manufactured in the UK from high density (100g/l) polystyrene. They have the weight and feel of a wooden hive, but with the added advantages of significantly improved insulation and waterproofing making them ideally suited for beekeeping in the UK.

 

The innovative gabled roof has 4"/100mm of solid polystyrene insulation providing excellent insulation, and with supported ends allows hives to be stacked for transport or inverted and used as a base during inspections.

 
All our beehives are all supplied with a stainless steel woven wire open mesh floor as standard. The floors all have an integral landing ramp and solid polystyrene built in feet keeping the base of the hive 6"/150mm off the ground, allowing good air circulation and often not requiring an additional hive stand.
 
The walls have deep secure handles and a minimum of 1.5"/35mm of insulation on all sides, combined with the solid thick roof and deep floor make them one of the most highly insulated beehives available on the market today.
 
As many existing beekeepers already have a stock of gimp pins, or use a stapler or nailer for frame assembly our complete hives are supplied without frame nails.  Gimp pins can be purchased separately if required.  Please see our Guide to frame assembly for further details.
