Hive frames are fitted with thin sheets of embossed wax called foundation. Foundation for brood frames and extracted honey frames can have embedded wires for extra strength. This prevents the comb from sagging when the wax gets soft during hot weather or from tearing apart during extraction.

At Jones Bee Company, we used Duragilt Foundation for a lot of years, but we have recently changed to permadent.

Duragilt Foundation is a plastic bonded, beeswax foundation with metal edges. This foundation will save you labor. It is easy To use, has metal edges which reinforce and strengthen the frames. Deep Worker-Sized Cell Imprints Beeswax. Duragilt Foundation is bonded to a plastic inner sheet. It is precision milled and has no additional cross wires. Needed Communication Holes Can be used with either Wedge Top Bar or Grooved Top Bar Frames.
We feel Duragilt is the finest foundation you can use at this time. We do carry Three other varieties of foundation for those that choose not to use this type of foundation.


Duragilt Foundation is our Favorite!
