The role of battens in roofing is crucial as it offers a fixing point for your chosen roofing material. Marley’s JB Red Batten
is produced with stability and accuracy in mind; it is manufactured from slow-grown, high-grade timber, then kiln dried and machined to a consistent 25mm thickness. The manufacturing process, treatment, and marking fulfil all requirements of BS5534:2014 and BS8417:2011 and is further independently assessed by BBA and certified accordingly. It also carries 60-year desired service life against insect attack and rotting fungi.
