PVCu beads from Renderplas prescribed for healthcare projects
Renderplas PVCu beads
More than 17,000m of Renderplas PVCu beads have been used as part of the external rendering systems for three major Scottish healthcare contracts.
A variety of beading solutions from Renderplas’ external range have been used in conjunction with spray-applied render systems.
Renderplas was recommended for the project because of its durable, low-maintenance solution that doesn’t corrode over time.
In Perth, approximately 15,000m of Renderplas PVCu beads are providing a high performance solution for a new mental healthcare unit being built by Morgan Sindall for NHS Tayside on the Murray Royal Hospital site.
Renderplas’ Corner, Stop, and Movement Joint PVCu beads are being used with StoRend Flex Cote, a synthetic, crack resistant external render system, specified in polar white.
StoRend Flex Cote provides a tough, flexible finish that requires no over-painting.
White Renderplas PVCu beads have been used with a Kilwaughter K Rend Textured Finish render system on the other two healthcare projects: Muirview, a 24-bed single storey mental health unit at Stratheden Hospital; and the redevelopment of Chalmers Hospital in Banff.
Muirview features Renderplas’ 15mm Corner Beads to provide a straight arris and impact protection around external corners and reveals, and 10mm and 15mm Stop Beads to create a clean-edged ‘stop’ to the render and prevent cracking around door and window frames.
Nearly 1,700m of Renderplas PVCu beads have been used on the redevelopment of Chalmers Hospital in Banff, involving refurbishment of existing buildings and new facilities.
10mm and 15mm Corner and Stop Beads, together with 15mm Movement / Expansion Joint Beads were installed to prevent cracking to render as a result of thermal expansion and compression.
Movement Joint beading is designed for areas of render over 20m2 and should be installed every four to six metres of continuous blockwork, over structural movement joints, and changes of background to give a discreet, strong and perfect finish.
Brilliant white external render PVCu beading profiles from Renderplas helped create the crisp, durable edges to the large external render panels of the distinctive geometric look at The Walk, a new commercial and leisure development in Bahrain. White non-corrosive and UV resistant PVCu beading, rather than metal, means no painting, and will withstand intense heat and humidity with minimal maintenance.

Survey by Renderplas reveals changing attitudes to sustainable building products in response to challenges of environmental obligations
Renderplas PVCu beads for rendering, plastering and dry lining applications have been fully approved by the British Board of Agrement (BBA).
