Softwood Battens

Softwood Battens

All Southern Timber battens are now imported from the Baltic, or Scandinavia, because these regions offer timber with tighter growth rings and a lower knot count. This means these roof battens are stronger and of more consistent quality than the home-grown battens. Roofing standards are quite specific as to the sizes of batten required depending on rafter centres and the proposed roofing materials. Batten sizes include 19mm x 38mm; 25mm x 38mm; 25mm x 50mm and 38mm x 50mm.

All Southern Timber battens are pressure treated, usually with Tanalith E, to a minimum Hazard Class 2 to minimise any deterioration from damp roof voids and external usage. Smaller cross sections of batten are also often purchased for custom trellis construction; all cross cuts should be treated with Ensele end grain preservative.

All our battens are sourced from FSC and PEFC stock and we are currently working towards achieving a full chain of custody. Other timbers and sheet materials are stocked for fascias, sarking, roof valleys, and OSB3 (aka sterling board) for flat roofing. Our smaller tanalised battens are often used for preparing walls for cladding and also for bespoke trellises. We also stock planed untreated redwood battens for other joinery and structural applications.
