Ashlar / Detail Bead

Ashlar Detail Beads are specifically designed to form Ashlar Detailing. Depending on the required depth of render, the Ashlar Bead can be bedded on or fixed directly to the substrate. The Ashlar Detail Bead is a cost-effective alternative method to manual Ashlar Detailing greatly reducing labour time, resulting in a neat 25mm detail. The finished bead can be painted if desired.

ProBead+ / Meshed Wing Bead

ProBead Plus is a range of beads including meshed angle/corner beads and window reveal/return (APU) beads. Specifically for use with polymeric thin coat render systems, ProBead Plus is designed to complement the ProWall and ProRend EIFS systems.

The Noseless Meshed Angle Bead (NMAB) is designed to create invisible reinforcement and protection to corners of buildings and openings and help reduce the risk of cracking.

The Window Protection Bead (PWWBP) more commonly known as an APU bead is designed to give protection to the window during render application as well as reduce the risk of cracking and create a water resistant seal between the bead and window frame.

Colours

Custom Colours

In addition to the standard colour range shown above we are also able to manufacture custom colours to suit most renders.

Custom colours are particularly suitable for thin coat synthetic renders such as ProRend Colourtex or equivalent.

Bead Colour Range

Render bead, or render trim is used to give sharp angles to the finished render for clean lines on your property. Corner beading adds additional reinforcement to the rendered finish, so the corners stay sharp for longer. Render bead is also used to direct moisture drops to run off the surface of the render. Plastic PVCu render bead has been used in the UK since the 1990s, as an alternative to metal trim that can corrode and stain the render.
Our render bead is available in wide range of colours, as in monocouche and thin coat systems a thin line of the bead is visible as part of the finished render wall.
