Crimped wires run vertically through the foundation for added strength and support. Wire hooks on the top of the foundation help keep the foundation in place behind the wedge in the frame. We recommend using Shallow Wooden frames with wedged top bars for this foundation.
Hint: For frames that will be run through an extractor, it is important to provide an additional support, with support pins or additional wiring with bee wire and a spur embedder. For frames that will be in the brood chamber, less support is needed.
*Shipping Note: This item ships 'at your own risk' from our facility in New York during the winter months due to being very brittle with low temperatures.
