PVC Beads

Corner / angle beads

PVCu corner beads / angle beads for rendering and plastering


Our locally manufactured PVCu corner beads / angle beads are designed for function and speed on all external and internal rendering and plastering applications. All Renderplas corner beads give a perfect finish to through colour render as well as offering a robust edge for sand and cement.

Application:  Designed for use on all rendered and plastered corners and reveals to produce a straight edge and provide protection against impact. Can also be used for internal plastering applications.

Colours:  All 6mm-15mm PVC corner beads are stocked in 9 natural colours. 20mm PVC corner beads are supplied from stock in white and ivory, and 8mm corner beads in white only.

Performance:  Renderplas plastic corner beads / angle beads offer a value for money alternative to stainless steel beads. They are made from cost-effective recycled exterior grade, impact resistant, UV stable PVCu and are guaranteed not to stain or corrode like galvanised 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 13914-1:2016) 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 toofine-toothed 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 or high strength corrugated boxes.  Supplied in 2.5m lengths and in packs of 25 as shown in the table below.


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 every rendered finish whether it be through colour render or more traditional 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:  'RS' codes are stocked in white and ivory except for RS4 which comes in white only. RS6, RS10, RS15 are also stocked in seven further colours as shown in the table below. ‘PS’ codes are stocked in white only.  

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 galvanised steel beads, reducing spalling and impact damage.

Dry lining beads

PVCu beads for dry lining / drywall applications

Renderplas PVCu dry lining beads offer the perfect solution for skim plastering and drywall applications. Because they are made locally from cost-effective recycled PVCu, they offer a value for money alternative to metal products. They are guaranteed not to stain during a lengthy drying out process, or in situations with high moisture or salts such as kitchens, bathrooms and pool enclosures. They are particularly well suited to schools, prisons, and hospitals as they do not provide any threat to safety either after a heavy impact or if pulled out of the wall.

Application:  Corner beads provide a clean edge and impact protection on external corners. Arch beads create smooth curves in arched reveals. Edge beads provide a clean attractive stop to plasterboard where it meets another finish, such as a brick wall or door frame, and prevent cracking. Architrave beads provide a shadow gap between the wall and ceilings, skirting boards and door frames.

Colours:  Stocked in white in all profiles.

Performance:  Like all Renderplas products, the dry lining range is manufactured from exterior grade, impact resistant, UV stable unplasticised PVCu. They offer several benefits over metal beads whilst still giving excellent protection from impact and providing clean edges that often do not need painting. PVCu beads are guaranteed never to rust and they will not stain as metal beads can do in lengthy drying periods. They are the perfect choice in situations with high moisture or salts such as kitchens, bathrooms and pool enclosures, but are equally suited to all general plasterboard applications.

Health and safety:  PVCu beads are completely safe to handle during application and do not have the razor sharp edges of cut metal. They are also preferred in schools, hospitals, and prisons as they do not provide any threat to safety either after a heavy impact or if pulled out of the wall.

Storage, cutting and fixing:  Store vertically away from heat and direct sun, or flat if supported along the entire length. PVCu beads are fast and easy to cut to length with tin snips or a fine-toothed hacksaw. They are simply fixed with nails or staples through the wing of the bead.

Packing:  Supplied in 2.5m or 3.0m lengths in robust fibreboard tubes or high strength corrugated boxes in 6, 25 or 50 lengths per pack as shown in the table below.
