Scottish Staff Bead
Many windows in Scotland use what is often called ‘Scottish Staff Bead’. This bead is generally around 33mm x 16mm in section. Traditionally, Staff bead would not be fitted with a brushpile, but modern Staff beads come with brushpile fitted to draughtproof the window. The pile is removable to allow paining.
