Ordered 2. Luckily checked the size before painting them. The floor is too long so the front would stick out under my national boxes. Which means it will rot after 1 year. Deemed useless so returned the goods.
In additon no entrance blocks were supplied as described on the order page.
When I got in touch their service was very slow and I rang a number of times before my return was processed.
I don't think I will buy from this site again. I hope they will improve. I am now looking elsewhere to get my floors.
Hello, this floor is as it should be. A landing area is common among solid floor designs. The product is bare wood so it will require painting prior to use as it is outside in the elements. Hives should be tilted on their stands by 5-10mm in order to provide runoff for water. Patrick
Everything was fine apart from the national floor which was several inches longer than a national floor should be, i.e. it sticks out beyond the front of the hive so the entrance block serves no purpose. I noticed that only when I had painted it and tried no put a National Brood Chamber on it. Thank you. I accept that the 3-month delivery time was Covid-related. Oliver Hibbert
Excellent. Gave coat of paint and ready to use.
Good quality material, could be improved with a hive entrance block.
