PEB PLASTERING Edge Beads ACCESSORIES


A range of Beads, Mesh and Archformers to satisfy the requirements of modern building design, along with the needs of traditional repair and maintenance work.
CORROSION PROTECTION In normal circumstances matured plasterwork may be regarded as dry and therefore non-corrosive.
Where galvanised beads are used the initial plaster drying out period should be kept to a minimum to reduce the risk of possible corrosion of the steel. Stainless steel beads are specifically designed for cement based renders and should not be used with gypsum based plasters. To prevent bimetallic corrosion ensure all metal fixings used in the installation are of the same material or are separated with a suitable plastic sheathing. In general, metal beads should be kept dry and stored flat. Care should also be taken to prevent accidental damage to the galvanised coating. The use of water contaminated with soluble salts in plastering mixes should be avoided as should soluble chlorides as they are likely to increase the risk of metal corrosion.

MATERIAL:
Simpson Strong-Ties Plastering Accessories are manufactured from either: Pre-Galvanised Mild Steel, or Austenitic Stainless Steel

Mild steel galvanised to Z275 is NOT suitable for external applications. Stainless Steel should only be used in external applications with the appropriate cement based renders.

GENERAL INSTALLATION NOTES:



Catalogue C-UK08 2007 SIMPSON STRONG-TIE COMPANY INC.

The most appropriate bead should be specified in accordance with the application, required plaster depth and desired finish. In external applications, we recommend the use of stainless steel products. Ensure that all metal components used in a given installation are of the same material type. Always wear gloves when cutting or handling to prevent injury from sharp edges. Beads and Mesh may be cut to size as required by using snips across the mesh and a hacksaw across the beads noses. Beads should be fixed in accordance with one of the following methods. Pressing the beads wings firmly into plaster dabs placed at approximately 600mm centres both sides of the arris. The wings may be embedded into the first coat of plaster for normal two coat work. Nailing to a background with galvanised, or stainless steel nails. The alignment of butt joints may be assisted by the application of headless nails, or wire of similar material, within the nosing. When beads are used in conjunction with metal lath backgrounds, galvanised or stainless steel tying wire may be used. Ensure the wire material matches the bead and lath materials. All wire should be twisted tightly and the ends bent away from the finished face of the coating. (For lath fixing details refer to DML and RBL sections of catalogue). Avoid damage to beads when trowelling plaster or render.

DML PEB Edge Expanded Beads Metal Lathing


IDEAL FOR USE AS A GENERAL REINFORCEMENT MESH.
DML Expanded Metal Lathing is widely used as a backing to help prevent cracks occurring where different materials meet. Complies to BS 1369:Part 1: 1987 Specification for Expanded Metal Lathing. MATERIAL: Pre-galvanised Mild Steel Stainless Steel 26 gauge: 2.25 Ibs per square yard (1.22 Kg per square metre). FINISH: Galvanised or stainless steel. INSTALLATION: All metal components used in any particular application must be of the same material type. Gloves should be worn to protect hands from sharp metal edges. Fix with the mesh length running across the supports (at max 350mm centres) with strand sloping downwards and away from the face of the coating. Timber: Using 7mm headed plasterers nails 38mm long, or 32 x 2mm staples, fix to each support starting from the centre of sheet. Angle fixings away from the centre to give the lath the necessary tension. Steel: Bend 1.2mm tying wire into long Ushapes and tie lath at 100mm centres by pulling tight and twisting. When cutting wire ends, ensure that they are not left near the surface of the plaster. Sheet ends should be overlapped by 50mm on supports and wired together at 150mm centres. Sheet sides should be overlapped by a minimum of 25mm and wired together at 150mm centres. Fixing installed at an angle to give necessary tension. Expanded Metal Lathing DML Expanded Metal Lathing

PEB RBL Rib Edge Lath Beads


PLASTER BACKING FOR WALLS, CEILINGS AND PARTITIONS
RBL Rib Lath provides plaster backing and is also suitable for the refurbishing of damaged or deteriorated face of masonry walls. MATERIAL: Pre-galvanised Mild Steel Stainless Steel FINISH: Galvanised or stainless steel. INSTALLATION: All metal components used in any particular application must be of the same material type. Gloves should be worn to protect hands from sharp metal edges. Fixing of lath should follow BS 5492: 1990 Code of practice for Internal Plastering and BS 5262: 1991 Code of practice for External Rendering. The apex of rib lath should always be in contact with the fixing background. FIXING TO METAL OR TIMBER SUPPORTS: Timber: Use 38 x 7mm plasterers nails or 32 x 2mm staples to fix with ribs running at 90 to timber studs which should be at a maximum 600mm centres. Metal : Use 1.63mm or two strands of 1.22mm galvanised mild steel wire to tie around the rib where it crosses each steel stud. Steel studs should be at maximum 600mm centres. To join sheets of Rib Lath, the edge ribs should be overlapped and the edges tied at 150mm centres with 1.22mm tying wire. Where the ends of the lathing finish in front of a support, overlap by 50mm, otherwise sheets should be overlapped by 100mm with two 1.63mm ties used with each overlapping rib. Fixing to solid backgrounds: The ribs of the lath should be held firmly against the background by the use of fixings placed at 600 mm centres.

WP/COR/AM/CP/ESP/BSP PEB Edge Beads Arch Formers


A HIGH QUALITY YET COST EFFECTIVE SOLUTION TO CREATING INTERNAL ARCHES IN MASONRY WALLS.
MATERIAL: Pre-galvanised Mild Steel INSTALLATION: Arch formers are non-load bearing. If creating a new opening a lintel will be necessary. Selection: Measure the brick to brick width and thickness of gap. If necessary, cut arch using snips and a hacksaw or use a bridging section (ref BSP450). If wall thickness exceeds 150mm, select extra Soffit Piece (ref ESP295) for wall thickness up to 400mm. Fixing: Remove plaster down to brickwork and mark centre point of the gap on both sides. Nail arch segments into place using, masonry nails provided, connecting beads at centre with joining pieces supplied. If provided, fit Soffit pieces between segments with screws, nails and joining pieces. For walls of thickness less than 150mm join overlapping fixed soffits with self-tapping screws provided. For walls thicker than 150mm use extra soffit piece (ref ESP295) in the same way as above. To adapt an arch to fit between two parallel walls, cut and use wooden battens as shown in the illustration on the right. Plastering: When the arch frame is fully secured to the wall, use standard angle bead on vertical corners as usual and apply plaster directly to the mesh. Suits wall thickness of 90mm to 150mm without cutting. Solid bead for durability and ease of plastering. Wide variety of styles and sizes available. Fixings and instructions included. Archformer installation where new opening is being created.

Step 1: Measure the width of the opening and the wall thickness, then choose the Archformer style in the size you need.

Step 2: Fix to the brickwork with the fixings included in the pack.

Step 3: Use the connecting dowel supplied to join the bead of each section together.

Step 4: Join the soffit pieces together with the fixings provided.

Step 5: Simply plaster or render the Archformer using the bead edge as a guide to the perfect finish.
