Batten is usually a truss member fixed at right angles to the truss chords to support roof tiles or ceiling material. They provide lateral restraint to the truss and are normally installed before the tile is laid on the roof and may serve more than one purpose. The ideal installation method for roof battens when installing a tile roof depends on the roof material, its slope, and environmental conditions such as rainfall, temperature and wind..
Our profile of the batten allows for nesting, making them easier to store, carry and handle. They can be lapped, eliminating the need for on-site cutting, which makes them quicker and easier to install. They are compatible with all roof claddings and are fixed directly to the rafters with screws through each flange.
