Renderplas PVC beads support sustainable regeneration

  • 1 Oct 2018

Renderplas PVC render beads are not only strong and sustainable, but are also creating clean, contemporary details to the rendering of regeneration projects by Cruden Homes in Glasgow.

Hundreds of new homes in the East End part of the city are part of an ambitious programme to replace 1960s tenements and build new, vibrant communities with modern, affordable housing.

In recent years, Glasgow’s East End has seen widescale levels of investment and regeneration, helping to transform the area.

New housing developments are providing high-quality homes, based on low energy design principles and use sustainable materials, fitting in nicely with Renderplas’s eco-friendly mantra.

All Renderplas beads are made from recycled exterior grade PVC, which has the benefits of being both impact resistant and UV stable.

Glasgow-based G Barton Plastering Ltd has worked on many of the city’s regeneration projects, including Crossbank Drive and Baron’s Vale. The company’s expert applicators specialise in applying render for all types of projects.

Garry Barton, MD, says house builders need to be able to rely on renderers who can execute an excellent job with the right materials, little fuss and maximum efficiency.

“We choose Renderplas PVC beads every time because we need to know that they’ll turn up exactly when we need them, they’ll perform perfectly and will stay maintenance-free for the life of the render, reducing the need for costly maintenance,” he said.

Renderplas corner, bellcast, stop and movement joint beads have all featured on these vital housing developments. They complement the new homes’ smooth, bright rendered facades and provide a perfect, long-lasting finish that is assured not to stain or corrode over time, as galvanised steel beads do.

Garry Barton, along with his team, expressed their delighted to be implementing such a significant part in Glasgow’s urban regeneration using products that will stand the test of time for current and future generations.

In summary, he commented: “Award-winning companies like Cruden Homes demand the best products at a competitive cost and are committed to building energy-efficient homes.

“Renderplas beads meet all these requirements, they’re cost-effective, fit for purpose and as a PVC product they eliminate cold bridges in external walls that would be caused by using steel beads, so they tick all the right boxes when it comes to thermal efficiency too.”

Renderplas MD, Daniel Leedham-Green, added: “When we designed the UK’s first PVC beads in 1990 we had a vision of sustainably built buildings, using modern energy efficient materials that could transform the lives of entire communities.

“Knowing that companies like Garry’s are out there doing such a great job in making that happen is very encouraging.”
