**2 x Completely RTG 3/4 Russian Pine Box & Plastic Manley Frames**
**Completely RTG (ready to go) 3/4 Russian Pine Box & Plastic Manley Frames**
The Supers are made from Russian Pine timber. Russian Pine is very slow growing so the growth rings are close together to make a denser and more stable material for beehives.These boxes are excellent quality and have rounded outer edges on the front and back plates.
This box is standard grade and may have one or two tight knots. We also have Premium Grade available. (No knots).
The box has been assembled with 20 stainless steel screws then dipped in hot Microcrystalline for 9 to 10 minutes to preserve the timber for a long life outside.
Microcrystalline is similar to Paraffin Wax but is a higher quality and has a melting point of 80 degrees. Paraffin Wax has been commonly used for beehive boxes but it will melt at 60 degrees and can leach out of the timber boxes on a hot summer day. This will leave them susceptible to rotting!
Timber thickness of the box is 20mm.
Approximate internal dimensions of the box: 365mm x 465mm x 185mm high.
