Staff and Parting Beads

Staff and Parting beads are a simple but very effective way of draught-proofing and weather-sealing a sliding sash window. They are an important part of sash hardware.

Traditionally manufactured in timber, the parting bead is used between the sashes and the staff bead on the inside perimeter. We can offer these products in Primed Timber, Q Wood, or Plastic with either pre-inserted fir piles or carriers to insert a weather seal.

We can source a range of different sizes and styles, if you cannot find the product you require, please contact our sales team.

What is a staff bead used for?

A staff bead is the internal bead that sits inside the inner frame of the sash box. Its main function is to hold sashes in place for a sash window. There's also a seal channel where you can insert your own draughtseals, although some staff beads come with pre-inserted options for better draught proofing and weather sealing.

What is a parting bead on a sash window?

The parting bead is a vertical seal installed between the upper and lower sashes, providing a pathway for the sashes to slide alongside each other.
