Supers are where your bees put the honey and the beekeeper places the frames to receive the comb and honey. Our supers are constructed from 7/8" thick Eastern Pine. Pine is a resilent, ideal wood for supers because it is durable enough for the job at hand. With care it will last for decades. Pine is also economical and easy to repair. Our supers are fully box-jointed and fit tighter, are less brittle and easier to assemble and nail together than other supers. Nails are sold seperately.
Our winters and beekeepers are tougher here in the Northeast, so we invented the 7/8" thick box that's tougher too. The extra 1/8" on the outside of the box adds extra strength and durability that will outlast the conventational 3/4" boxes made from a cheaper stock. They fit tighter, are less brittle and are easier to nail. The 1/8 inch extra is on the outside of the super.
How strong are you? When filled with honey, our shallow supers weigh 40 lbs. The ultimate weight of the super is something you might want to consider when choosing your hive equipment.
