It is a system for making honey in a honeycomb that consists of a special plastic box that takes four round honeycombs (8 rings).
After the bees have completed the sections, they are removed from the supers and the frames and placed in the crystal boxes (Lids).
This system facilitates the production of honeycomb honey and provides a clean and original presentation. The process is quick and simple. The system is made up of four elements.

- Plastic frame, there are eight frames per rise.
- The rings are eight for each square (every second ring is a section).
- The covers are two for each section.
- Supports for round honeycombs.
How to use:
The frame is made up of two parts that fit one over the other. When you open the box, you get two parts each containing four housings.
These housings are to fit a ring in each housing, respecting the foreseen fittings.
You have to put a sheet of stamped wax of the size of the picture and close the parts. The blade will remain trapped between the rings. (the approximate measurements of the sheet are 420x105mm).
Then you have to put the eight frames on the rear and put it in a strong hive.
When the sections are full, it is enough to open the box and remove the sections formed by the two rings brought together by wax and honey.
Finally you have to put a lid on each side, label. The section is ready for sale or for own consumption.
It is preferable to put only one super per hive. The parts that make up the frame prevent the bees from enlarging the honeycomb more than necessary. The sections will therefore be regular in weight and shape, around 200 grams.
The exterior measurements of the risers are standard (less height), but the interior ones are adapted to give a proportionate round section and with a good presentation to be sold.
