Precision milled passage bars
One-Piece wedge shaped top bar design
Our Top Bars Are Durable and Precisely Spaced
The triangle (wedge) shape top bars that Corwin designed have made a significant difference in the bees drawing straight combs. The wedge shaped top bars the bees are able to have a better guide to create a straight comb along the entire length of the top bar. It is rare that the bees will create crooked combs with the wedge shaped top bars. The solid attachment to the top bar wedge also makes for more durable combs and the bees tend to make less of an attachment on the sides of the hive, making the combs easier to work with and remove from the hive
The spacers are absolutely the best innovation in top bar bee keeping. Corwin developed the spacers to accommodate the bees natural tendency to make thicker honey combs toward the back of the hive. This innovation aids tremendously in assuring that the bees draw out strait comb that is attached to single bars.
