L Beads are designed to finish drywall layering details, and rough drywall ends. Nails, screws, or staples can be used for simple attachment to studs through the L-bead drywall flange. The high shoulder and numerous perforations on the 1-1/8″ flange improve flush finishing while enhancing strong compound adhesion. It is simple to field cut rigid vinyl without distorting the shape of producing burrs or sharp edges, and it won’t rust or dent.
The “half-bead” or “drywall L Trim” is used to protect the edges of the drywall. The 1/2 or 5/8 leg safeguards the top edge whereas the 1-1/4 leg can be filled like a corner bead.
