Original BackerBead®

Combination PVC Casing Bead with built-in closed cell backer rod

Eliminates the need to install a backer rod separately, as the product features a factory-applied backer rod that is affixed to the vinyl casing bead and set to the exact height and depth.

Description

This allows the installer to create a “gap” on the wall without the hassle of aligning it in the field, thereby saving time and materials.

Features / Benefits:

  • Combination Bead - Reduces steps in the field installation of casing bead and separate backer rod. Ensures backer rod is installed around all door and window openings.
  • Improved Quality - Factory-applied blue backer rod with preset width and depth to ensure proper caulk gap for sealant application. When the gap is properly caulked, the blue backer rod will no longer be visible.
  • Separation of Dissimilar Materials - Properly terminates stucco and mortar at window and door frames.
  • Sealant Compatibility - Closed-cell backer rod compatible with elastomeric and other cold-applied sealants.
