Renderplas PVC beads do like to be beside the seaside

  • 5 Nov 2018

A coastal environment can be harsh for a building to withstand so when a Grade 2 listed, Victorian kiosk was set for relocation and renovation on the Brighton seafront, Renderplas PVC beads were sourced for the internal plasterwork.

In 2015, Brighton & Hove City Council began work on the long and difficult process of essential maintenance work to save the Brighton seafront road which, at the time, was in danger of collapse.

The project has seen the wooden framed Shelter Hall Kiosk, dating back to the 1880s, painstakingly dismantled and relocated to its new home on the Upper Prom, 200 meters from its original location.

Vital to the success of this process was the West Sussex based construction company, Harrity Building and Construction Ltd.

Company owner, Chris Harrity, who possesses many years’ experience tackling complex projects as these, said an important part of the reconstruction was the internal plastering – whilst metal beads were originally specified, Chris insisted Renderplas PVC beads were the correct choice.

“Though the beads were used internally, we still felt it necessary to use Renderplas PVC beads rather than galvanised or stainless as we could be 100% certain that they would not rust or bleed through the plaster,” he said.

The kiosk will need to withstand many torrential storms, long winters and harsh atmospheric conditions, as Chris Harrity commented on: “The newly located kiosk will have to endure high salt levels. Renderplas beads give us peace of mind that there will be no need for costly ongoing remedial repairs.”

The British and European Standard for the design and application of external render (BS EN 13914-1:2016) stipulates only PVC beads and stainless steel beads can be used in applications of high atmospheric moisture and background salt.

Renderplas beads meet this standard and are a fraction of the price of stainless steel beads; truly the ideal choice for all coastal building projects.

Renderplas white corner and stop beads, used on the project, are made from cost-effective 100% recycled, exterior grade, impact resistant, UV stable PVC, and are guaranteed for 25 years, meaning no costly repair bills or returns to site for Brighton & Hove City Council or Harrity Building and Construction Ltd.

Daniel Leedham-Green, Renderplas MD, always expresses pride at being associated with the restoration and preservation of the country’s building heritage: “This Victorian seaside kiosk is synonymous with the English seaside and childhood holidays.

“It is heartwarming to know that Renderplas beads have helped ensure its survival for many future generations to enjoy.”
