Concrete slab for 7 frame FlowHive 2+

Does anyone know what the minimum size a concrete slab would need to be to hold a FlowHive 2+ (7-frame) ie the distance between the outside of the ant guards L x B. ??

I have used 600mm x 600 mm pavers/slabs

That’s nice. Do you happen to know the distance from outside edge of antguards? Ie the minimum size a concrete pad would need to be?

Hi Matt, I know that a 7 frame Flow hive sits nicely on a 10 frame migratory roof which is 510mm x 405mm. Therefore if you’re looking for a minimum size, those dimensions may help.

Thank you so much for that! Very nice to be able to work with some good measurements! It would seem then that the legs mustn’t really splay out much. I thought they might a bit more.

You’re welcome Matt, I think they come straight down on the corners. If I was making a slab, I think I’d make it a bit bigger, that’s just me.

Have you got your hive yet?
