Window Header Drip Bead (2.5m)
Window header bead is used to reinforce the top of openings – it tends to be used above doors and windows. The bead works a lot like corner bead; however, it has an additional drip on the leading edge which helps prevent water from heading back along the window reveal back to the window frame.
The window header bead is made from PVC and has two ‘wings’ of fibre glass mesh connected to it that gets basecoated into the render system. The 90-degree angle on the window header bead helps create a tidy square finish at the edge of the external render systems. The window header bead also helps protect the render system against impact damage in these areas.
The window header bead is 2.5m in length and is made from PVC plastic and fibreglass mesh so there is zero risk of rusting.
