Wood Beading is often used as a generic term for linear mouldings in general, though originally it referred to timber strips that had a pattern resembling a string of beads.

Depending on your interpretation of the word, beading can have a wide range of uses, however at Wood Mouldings we use the term beading to denote our window and door range of mouldings;

‘stop beads’ are fitted to the frame of a window or door to stop it swinging 180 degrees through the frame when closed. Many door frames come pre-rebated to achieve this same function but stops can be fitted separately where this is not the case.

 – ‘Parting Beads’ are designed to be used on sash windows as a draft excluder on either side of the sash frame. They can also however, be used in conjunction with other mouldings, to build up more elaborate patterns on your walls and furniture.

‘Glass beads’ are a small strip of wood which holds a pane of glass in place once it has been inserted into its housing on a door or window. It is often moulded in an ovolo shape to give the finish a more decorative style.

Wood Mouldings offer beadings in whitewood and red deal finishes and in a variety of sizes so that you can optimise both the visual appeal and the functional effectiveness of the beading. See options below.
