Denis devotes a page of his web site to the issue of frames versus top-bars. The German original is at http: The top-bar cloth here is coarsely woven hessian. This page was last edited on 18 Novemberat The half-frames are used solely for queen rearing and other needs connected with the brood that do not concern the beginner.

As the above illustration with comb shows, the bees build comb past the dowel to the wall. Also, to harvest the honey it is only necessary to cut the comb off the bar, crush it and allow the honey to flow out. Home Links Contact Site map.

He finds that they have all the advantages of frames and top-bars, without the inconveniences of either. From Wikimedia Commons, apjculture free media repository. Rebate for frame lugs Depth x width. This web site is premised on the 12th edition of Beekeeping For All which describes the top-bar version of his hive only. Denis’ commercial scale operation includes migratory beekeeping, for example to lavender.

The rebate, side to side is mm in both cases and the thickness of the planed wood is 22mm and watre overall depth is external x internal. The internal dimensions are xmm and xmm. Table of comparison of frames measurements in mm. The main reasons are that: A piece is cut out of a Langstroth top-bar, the cut ends butt-jointed with glue and the bar reinforced with a comb guide in a groove.

Side-bars Length B x width x thickness.

Bill Harley reports 7: Under the roof is a board x mm square and 10 mm thick resting on and fixed to two battens, also 10 mm thick. Gilles Denis also gives beekeeping courses. We therefore offer descriptions of these variants in separate pages accessible via the links below: The dowel may be glued into the top-bar, or secured merely by a tight fit in the hole.

This page examines the frames issue and offers construction data on the frame versions. These modified top-bars he calls porte-rayons or ‘comb carriers’, which we here refer to as ‘half frames’.

However, another type of semi-frame using dowels has been adopted by Gareth John UK. The measurements A, B, C and D in the table below correspond to the dimensions on the following diagram: It allows comb to be built past the dowel side-bar.

Partly to facilitate transport, Denis has made the top of the hive more compact. This also removed the problem of storing comb from season to season.
