It is illustrated here in the following sketches drawn by Bernhard Heuvel from details in Gilles Denis’ book 1: Partly to facilitate transport, Denis has made the top of the hive more compact.

The first in use in Germany and Russia were populated in Denis finds frames useful for tosu, grafting and any other tos that requires lifting a comb, but recognises that as the frames become obscured and stuck to the walls etc. So he developed an intermediate between the frame and the top-bar by adding projections of a few centimetres at each end of the top-bar.
