3mm Stop Bead with Mesh
This 3mm stop bead with mesh is used to create a clean finish within a render system, for example between two mid terrace houses. The 3mm stop bead is applied to the wall with adhesive / render and creates a mechanical stop that is rendered up to.
The 3mm stop bead is made from PVC and has a ‘wing’ of fibre glass mesh connected to it that gets basecoated into the thin coat render system. The 90-degree angle on the stop bead help create a tidy square finish at the edge of the external render systems. The stop bead also helps protect the edge of the render system against impact damage.
Stop beads can also be used to divide large external render areas down into smaller, more manageable zones.
Since the 3mm stop bead is made from PVC plastic, there is zero risk of rusting.
The 3mm stop bead is 2.5m in length
While the bead helps to prevent water ingress, we do recommend running Silicone Sealant (approved to be used externally) down the back of the bead to create a completely water tight seal.
