Save time, costs and resources with our range of specialist bead products - Using BeadMaster will ensure higher efficiencies on site and reduce costs.

What is it?

BeadMaster products deliver a perfect finish around sockets, switches, downlights and sprinklers; first time, every time.

How does it work?

The plastic cover plate is stapled to the plasterboard, enabling plasterers to skim over socket, switch, downlight and sprinkler holes quickly and easily. The centre is then removed to reveal smooth, rigid edges and a perfect finish.

What does it mean for you?

Not only does BeadMaster enable your plasterers and electricians to work together safely and happily (see, miracles can happen), it also delivers an immaculate finish first time, which reduces time spent on re-work and snagging. Like all great inventions, it’s hard to believe no one has come up with the idea of BeadMaster until now.

  • "I used the downlight bead and fitted these. The plasterer had not seen this idea before and was amazed how easy it made plastering the ceiling — no plaster down the back of the neck. I would definitely recommend these products."
