The 8 Frame Lid is moulded to Langstroth standard dimensions, has migratory vents, allocation for spring clips and is interchangeable with your existing supers. The ribbed design gives the lid strength, durability and is UV stable for 30+ years. Bases are easily stacked on top of lids for transport or storage purposes. The reinforced ribbing on the side of the lid gives added strength for strapping hives down tight. The standard lid sits flush on top of your super allowing hives to be stacked hard up against one another.
