What is Speadbead Technology?

Speedbead is a revolutionary new glazing bead that has been designed to make the process of installing and removing glass much easier and faster. It features a unique polyamide clip that is inserted into the aluminum profile of the window frame. This clip flexes when the bead is pushed into place, creating a tight and secure seal. The only way to remove the bead is to use a special deglazing tool that releases the clip.

This image illustrates how the Speadbead special deglazing tool releases the clip.

Benefits of Speadbead

This design has several advantages over traditional glazing beads:

  • Easy to install: Speedbead can be installed in a fraction of the time it takes to install traditional glazing beads.
  • Easy to remove: The deglazing tool makes it easy to remove the trim without damaging the bead, the glass or the window frame.
  • Clean and professional finish: Speedbead creates a clean and professional finish.
  • No need for silicone: Speedbead eliminates the need for silicone sealant, which can be messy and difficult to apply and remove.
