Hi
I am changing a panel in my UPVC door so thought to change the beads (which holds the panel in place) at the same time. I am having difficulty in finding the beads. I had replies such " unfortunately this is not an item you can buy it comes from the extruder and if of age they will no longer be extruded." and "there won’t be sorry these are designed specifically for that frame".
Surely there must be some equivalent beads I can use, any ideas?
Photo of door and bead attached.

most manufacturers use a specific profile supplier. so say maybe rehau, euro cell etc etc

those look really old also, so it very likely would be a discontinued profile section.

Thanks for the replies. Yes there is no way to find bead replacements. I had to change one upvc panel as it had a cat flap not in use so got a new panel, cut it to size, liquid soap wash the old beads and re assemble and looks like new.
