Slow-grown, sustainably-sourced timber

Unlike other manufacturers, JB Red timber is sourced from a range of mills in Scandinavia where, due to the colder climate, the timber is slower growing, producing much stronger wood than timber grown in warmer countries.

Only kiln-dried sideboards are used to ensure stability and dimensional accuracy. All wood is supplied to us with either FSC or PEFC certification in accordance with the EU timber regulations so you can rely on its sourcing.

Machine graded in the UK

JB Red is the only graded roof batten to be manufactured in the UK. We not only rely on our state-of-the-art laser grading machine, Goldeneye, which scans the battens intricately by the millimetre to comply with BS 5534, but on Howard, one of our highly-experienced visual graders. He ensures that rigorous, regular checks keep the high level of batten quality we rely on and you expect. This means no further grading is required reducing waste by up to 95% and therefore cost.

More than just a colour

Treated at our Gainsborough manufacturing base to BS 8417:2011 Usage Class 2, which forces MicroPro preservative into each piece of timber, JB Red is given its unique colour by Nick. This makes it highly visible on site and ensures Building Control, NHBC, and other inspectors can see immediately that only pre-graded, high-quality, BS 5534-compliant battens have been used.

We even provide a 60-year lifetime guarantee against insect and wood rotting fungi to provide you with peace of mind when you rely on red.
