Aluminium Corner Bead with mesh for thin coat render
This corner bead consists of an aluminium 90-degree angle, with two ‘wings’ of fibreglass mesh.
The corner bead gets embedded on all external corners of a render only or external wall insulation system within the cementitious basecoat layer.
The purpose of the corner bead is twofold, firstly it helps provide nice accurate 90-degree corners on a building. The thin coat corner bead also helps protect the corner against impact damage.
The corner bead is 2.5m in length. It is completely embedded within the basecoat layer, so unlike monocouche corner bead, will not be visible once the render system has been finished.
The corner bead with mesh is also often used around windows and doors to strengthen that area.
Made out of aluminium, this corner bead is often used in conjunction with mineral wool because of its fire resistant capabilities.
