Our stainless steel beads are specifically designed for use with external renders. They are produced in the UK to EN 10088-2 grade 1.4301 which ensures a high quality product is supplied at all times. Available in 3.0m lengths, these beads are available as: 10mm, 13,, and 16mm stop and movement beads. As 16mm bellcast (external render stop) beads and as a corner beads with a 45mm wing.
How to check if you have a stainless steel or a galvanised bead? Try sticking a magnet to a stainless steel bead and it will fall off. It will stick to a galvanised one. Sometimes, very low quality stainless steel will hold a magnet because the steel quality has been compromised by the inclusion of other metals.
