Glazing in Seconds: Speedbead

Imagine installing a bi-folding door and glazing each leaf in just seconds. That’s the power of the Korniche Speedbead system, a patented clip-in glazing bead developed by Made For Trade. Forget the hassle of traditional methods that involve cutting and fitting wedge gaskets on-site, a process that can be lengthy and prone to errors.

Speedbead: Transforming Bi-Folding Door Installation

Here’s how Speedbead simplifies and streamlines the installation process:

  • Pre-gasketed for Simplicity: Speedbead comes pre-gasketed, eliminating the need for on-site gasket manipulation. This translates to significant time savings and a more streamlined installation process.
  • Clip-in for Effortless Glazing: Simply clip the Speedbead into place for a secure and weatherproof fit. No adjustments are needed, ensuring a precise installation every time.
  • Concealed Beauty: The innovative design of Speedbead creates a concealed seal that doesn’t obstruct the clean sight lines of the glazed panels, enhancing the overall aesthetics of the Korniche bi-folding door.
  • Easy Deglazing: Need to make adjustments or replace a glass panel? Speedbead features a dedicated tool that allows for effortless deglazing, minimizing the risk of damage to the door frame.
