JB Red Battens
JB Red roofing battens are made from high-grade sideboards that are slow-grown and kiln-dried, making them incredibly strong and stable. The red pigment makes the battens easy to identify to inspectors on site.
These battens are the only factory-graded roof battens with BBA (British Board of Agrément) certification, and they are graded to BS 5534. They are also FSC® or PEFC™ certified, and they are preservative treated to BS 8417: 2011 Usage Class 2.
These high-quality roofing laths are treated with MicroPro®, which protects them from attack by fungi and insects, and has a 60 year desired service life.
JB Green Battens
We also provide JB Green battens, which are made from kiln-dried timber that is slow-grown for strength and stability, and they are FSC® or PEFC certified. The preservative is treated to Usage Class 2, and different lengths are available up to between 3.6m and 5.4m.
Please note, however, that these roof laths are not suitable for BS 5534 applications. For a BS 5534 graded batten, use JB Red instead.
