The Benefits of Cattles Glazing Beads
and Service

High quality of products and service
Our long history of both traditional and contemporary skills means we are able to offer you the highest quality of products and a service that is second to none.

The production of every order is allocated a project manager who oversees quality control standards from concept, through to drawings, production, finishing and finally, delivery.

Quick delivery times
As we are located in North Buckinghamshire we are in very easy reach of all major road networks, which allow us direct access to our clients.

We offer our own delivery service to ensure that our clients receive their delivery not only on time but also in one piece.

We support all environmentally conscious initiatives
We are FSC® certified (Forest Stewardship Council®) and therefore we can provide a chain of custody for all FSC certified timber when required (FSC®C007915).

We can deliver beading for any size or shaped vision panel
Not only can we supply the more traditional and popular shaped bead frames (circular glazing bead frames / semi circular glazing bead frames ("D" shaped) and ladder frame glazing beads, but we can also supply almost any reasonable shape that you specify

We offer any glazing bead section design to suit your specification
The most popular Cattles bead sections include standard, splayed and rebated, and flush quirk beads

Buy from us with confidence
All our glazing beads meet FD30 and FD60 rating when used with appropriate door construction and glazing system.

Our bead frames are designed to resist shrinkage or movement
To ensure you receive the quality synonymous with Cattles we hand finish each joint with a strong jointing system, which will withstand normal handling and fixing on site or in the factory. The timbers we use have been kiln dried to prevent shrinkage. Most timbers are kiln dried to 8-10% moisture content, although for special applications lower moisture content can be achieved.

A choice of finishes is available
You can select a bead surface which has either been:-

  • clear lacquered with two coats of lacquer
  • white primed ready for painting
  • sanded to a fine finish suitable for polishing

We offer Designer Bead Frames
In addition to the more traditional finishes we at Cattles are able to offer architects and interior designers a special bespoke service with our Designer Bead Frames using exotic woods, wood inlay designs and marquetry techniques

Health & Safety standards met
We are more than aware of the stringent requirements that door manufacturers have to meet for security and safety glazing and therefore adopt the necessary quality standards in our glazing bead frames.

We will be very happy to discuss your glazing bead, panel moulding or plant on moulding specification through with you. Either call us or to fill in our enquiry form click here.
