Yes alot cheaper. but i'm no closer to european dadant and english dadant size info.
Reason being i may buy some European ones that is ,but need to know frame difference so as not to get caught out :)

Reading the posts from our ex-pat contingent, I think the European Dadant-Blatt hives take different frames to our Mod. Dadant we use in the UK. An MD top bar is 19". Dadant-Blatt top bar is a bit shorter.

We have loads of expat members beekeeping in France.
You should get some help from them when they read the thread.

I have just built a Dadant hive using measurements I got from a local French shop. The Frame top bars on the brood measure exactly 18.5" and overall height 11.8"

Frame Depth = 30cm

Top bar / frame width = 2.5cm

C'mon rbaz,! Living in France and measuring in metric inches....

'When in Rome, do as the Romans do' comes to mind!

I like 'SI' units, but mm and cm will do as we don't seem to have superscript and subscript options here.

Regards, RAB

I am young so " not much good to me too but somebody asked me what the size was in " which is why I had them to hand.
I will check this afternoon and get back to you the exact size in mm ;)
