These timber framed excluders will avoid transmitting heat in summer and cold in winter. Well made item.
2nd one I bought, great quality and fit. Nice rounded bars easy on the bees. Strong construction.
The only time I get stung is when I am trying to slide (the bulldozer technique) a heavy laden super onto an excluder after an inspection. Never goes smoothly and a hive that has been calm to that point is suddenly angry. With the framed excluders the slight height gain gives you time to just lift and place the super down in one go before the bees spillover onto the sides of the excluder. I have progressively switched all my excluders over.
