Renderplas PVCu beads for rendering, plastering and dry lining are
exhibiting their benefits at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum and
a number of other prestigious London projects by David Andrews
Construction, a leading specialist in high quality trade finishes.
The award-winning contractor has used over 3,000 metres of
Renderplas beading for various new build and refurbishment
contracts, from hotels, luxury homes and leisure centres to one of
the capital’s most popular museums. As a high volume customer,
Renderplas is able to offer David Andrews direct-to-site deliveries,
saving the contractor valuable time and resources.
Based in Islington, North London since 1987, David Andrews Construction has gained experience in all types of plastering and related services, including specialist plasterwork for listed buildings and external insulated render systems, as well as acoustic ceilings and fire protection partitioning. Renderplas PVCu beads ensure a reliable result, whatever the application, says the company’s Project Manager, Ian Englishby. “We use them on a regular basis because they are so versatile and perform equally well with standard and specialist plasters and rendering systems,” he comments. “Their flexibility compared with metal alternatives is ideal for curved rendering, such as arches, which were a feature in a recent refurbishment project at the Victoria and Albert Museum.”
David Andrews Construction also recommended Renderplas beads for its plasterwork renovation sub-contract in high moisture areas at the Kentish Town Sports Centre, which has recently been restored to its former Victorian splendour and enhanced with new facilities by main contractor Wates Construction. Angle and Stop Beads from the Renderplas range are providing a highly durable beading solution on curved bulkheads around the indoor pool at the Sports Centre. “Being PVCu, Renderplas beads are not affected by atmospheric corrosion so will outlast galvanised metal beading in this type of environment,” says Ian Englishby.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2010, Renderplas was the UK’s first manufacturer of PVCu beads for the rendering, plastering and dry lining industries, and over the past two decades has led the market with innovations and developments. Renderplas gives a comprehensive choice of 12 colours across a range of different profiles, including ‘wide wing’ solutions and the pioneering PowerBead - the first PVCu bead that truly outperforms stainless steel to ensure ultra strong, straight edges, and which can be fixed directly to the substrate to save time and money. Renderplas PVCu beads can also be used internally for wet plastering, and there are a further five profiles specifically for skim plastering. Renderplas PVCu beads conform to BS EN 13914-1: 2005 External Rendering and are available through most leading builders merchants or direct from Renderplas.
