When planning an outdoor rendering project it’s important to remember to choose beads made of stainless steel or PVCu. Building requirements outlined by NHBC and LABC, only advocate the use of austenitic stainless steel or PVCu beads in all external rendering applications, anywhere in the UK. Galvanised steel beads are no longer accepted for external rendering in any situation.
But don’t worry, our extensive range of beads and mesh make plastering and rendering simple.
Our SAB-S Standard Angle Bead has been designed to prevent chipping and cracking to vulnerable corners.
ERS-S Render Stop Bead provides aesthetic, enhanced weathering detail, along with reinforcement to resist impact damage.
The PSB-S Mesh Wing Plaster Stop Bead has numerous potential applications internally and externally including those at openings, abutment of walls and for ceiling finishes.
The MVB-S Movement Bead consists of two lengths of Stop Bead linked with a white PVC extrusion.
