The MicroPro® preservative treatment protects against wood rotting fungi and insects, so you can be sure it's fit for purposeand without comebacks.
The batten is loaded into our vacuum treatment tanks, where the preservative treatment is impregnated into the timber. The red pigment protects the timber and transforms it to give the distinctive and easily identifiable red colour.
Widely available across the UK, our JB Red roof battens are sourced from an extensive network of Scandinavian sawmills. All of our timber has full chain of custody and is PEFC™ certified to ensure it only comes from managed forests.
With quality paramount, we select slow-grown timber, which gives maximum strength and durability.
We are picky with the timber we choose.
When it comes to the cuts we use, we specifically choose kiln-dried sideboards, eliminating the weaker cuts. This way we know our timber will provide greater stability, and is less likely to distort.
Easily identifiable with their bright red colour, pre-graded JB Red battens, cut down the time needed to visually grade on-site - saving you time and money and making it easier for building inspectors to know your batten meets the standards.
