Galvanised & Stainless Steel Plastering Beads
The use of plastering beads is instrumental in the creation of sharp corner joints and stop ends and provides protection and reinforcement to vulnerable plaster edges.
Beads can be cut to size using tin snips or shears. Beads can be fixed using suitable mechanical fixings or using plaster/render dabs at 600mm centres.
If joining angle beads together, insert a dowel into the end of first bead and add the second on top to provide a continuous join with correct alignment.
Perforated Thin Coat Bead
Perforated Thin Coat Bead is used to reinforce and protect one-coat finish of plaster on corners and reveals at its weakest points on internal walls and plasterboard, size 22x22mm, available in 2400mm and 3000mm lengths.
Mini Mesh Bead
Mini Mesh Bead is used to reinforce and protect one-coat finish of plaster on corners at its weakest point on internal walls and plasterboard. The mini mesh bead has a greater area of expanded metal therefore gives a better mechanical key, available in 2400mm and 3000mm lengths.
Drywall Arch Stop Bead
Drywall Arch Stop Bead is used to provide a precise straight clean finish and also reinforce one-coat plaster on its edge. Can also be used for slight curves in plaster finish because of its slightly malleable condition, available in 2400mm and 3000mm lengths.
Angle Bead is used to provide a true, straight corner which protects and reinforces a 2 or 3 coat plaster or render application in its most vulnerable area. One size adjusts for thickness, although larger wings are available for unusually thick plaster / render.
Galvanised 43mm wide for internal use at 2400mm or 3000mm lengths or stainless steel 50mm wide for external use at 3000mm lengths.
Plaster Stop Bead
Plaster Stop Bead is used to provide a precise straight clean finish and also to reinforce 2 or 3 coat plaster or render on its edge. Galvanised Plaster Stop Bead for internal use is available in four sizes for varying thickness of plaster depth - 10, 13, 16 and 19mm and 2400 or 3000mm lengths.
Stainless steel for external use, available as 13mm and 3000mm lengths.
External Render Stop Bead
External Render Stop Bead is predominantly used to form a neat bell shaped edge at the bottom of an external render finish, thus protecting the edge and acting as a run-off for when rainfall occurs. Galvanised product to be used in sheltered areas only, stainless steel for all other areas including coastal.
Plaster depth 16 to 20mm, wing dimension 45mm and length 3000mm.
