We normally keep four different section sizes of batten in stock, the 25mm x 38mm Battens being a mid-range batten. We also supply 19mm x 38mm, two different grades of 25mm x 50mm roofing batten and a 38mm x 50mm for roofing or cladding
Small section battens 25mm x 38mm
For some types of roof the 25mm x 38mm could be used as part of a timber roof structure to support a variety of roofing materials. these include natural slate, fibre-cement, clay, concrete, bitumen shingles or cedar shingles.
Minimum batten sizes for the common roof coverings can be summarised as follows. A roof with rafter centres up to 450mm centres means all tile roof coverings and fibre-cement slate should use 25mm x 38mm battens. The heavier natural slates should use 25mm x 50mm. For a roof with rafter centres up to 600mm then 25mm x 50mm battens should be used for natural and fibre-cement slate, interlocking clay and concrete tiles. Plain tiles should use 25mm x 38mm battens.
These are guidelines, it is the customer’s responsibility to determine what batten product is required for their application
