Stop Beads

PVCu stop beads for rendering and plastering applications


Our locally manufactured PVCu stop beads are designed for function and speed on all external and internal rendering and plastering applications. Discreet but strong, all beads give a perfect finish to through colour render with Powerbead providing ultimate strength for heavy sand and cement.

Application:  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.  Can also be used for internal plastering applications.

Colours:  Stocked in white and ivory in beads with ‘RS’ codes and white only in beads with ‘PS’ codes.  RS6, RS10, RS15 and RSX15 are also stocked in ten further colours as shown in the table below.

Performance:  Renderplas plastic stop beads offer a value for money alternative to stainless steel beads because they are made from cost-effective recycled exterior grade, impact resistant, UV stable PVCu and are guaranteed not to stain or corrode like galvanized steel beads, reducing spalling and impact damage.  Designed to outlast their metal counterparts, plastic beads are guaranteed to be fit for purpose for the lifetime of the render and at least 25 years.  Our PVCu beads match the stipulations of the British and European standard for the design requirements of metal beads and lath (BS EN 13658-2:2005), are BBA certified, Class 1Y fire rated, and are not affected 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.

Storage, cutting and fixing:  PVCu beading is fast and easy to cut to length with tin snips or a fine toothed hacksaw and is safer to handle than cut metal.  Fixing is no different from steel beads and standard industry practice can be followed.  Please see the installation guide for details.  Store vertically away from heat and direct sun, or flat if supported along the entire length.

Packing:  All PVC beads are packed in robust fibreboard tubes except for RSX15 which is packed in thick polythene sleeves.  Supplied in 2.5m or 3.0m lengths and in packs of 25 or 6 as shown in the table below.
