Renderplas PVCu stop beads are designed for function and speed on internal and external rendering and plastering applications.
PVCu stop beads are designed to provide a stop to the render at window and door frames and at changes to the facade to produce a straight finish and protection against impact. The stop beads can also be used for internal plastering applications. PVCu beading is fast and easy to cut to length with a fine toothed hacksaw or tin snips and is much safer to handle than cut metal. Fixing the PVCu bead is no different from steel beads and standard industry practice can be followed.
Renderplas plastic stop beads offer better value for money as opposed to stainless steel beads as they are made from cost-effective recycled exterior grade, impact resistant, UV stable PVCu that are guaranteed not to stain or corrode like galvanized steel beads, reducing spalling and impact damage. The plastic beads are guaranteed to be fit for purpose for the lifetime of the render and at least 25 years. Renderplas PVCu beads match the stipulations of British and European standard for the design requirements of metal beads and lath (BS EN 13658-2:2005), they are BBA certified, Class 1Y fire rated, and unaffected by weather. The British and European Standard for the design and application of external render (BS EN 13914-1:2005) stipulates that only PVC beads and stainless steel beads can be used in all applications including situations of high atmospheric or background moisture and high atmospheric or background salt.
All Renderplas stop beads give a perfect finish to through colour render with Powerbead providing the ultimate strength for heavy sand and cement.
