BS5534 38mm x 25mm Treated JB Red Roofing Batten

JB Red battens are UK factory graded roof batten with BBA certification. Produced only from high-grade, slow-grown and kiln-dried sideboards, JB Red Battens provide maximum strength and stability. No further grading is required, saving you time and money.

The distinctive red pigment in JB Red Battens means that on site they are easily identifiable to Local Authority Building Control, NHBC and other inspectors as high-quality, pre-graded Marley roof battens, which are fully compliant with BS 5534.

With exceptional strength and rigidity, JB Red Battens are available in 2 sizes (25mm x 38mm and 25mm x 50mm), supplied every time with consistency in width and thickness, making installation quick and easy.

Marley roof battens are treated with the preservative MicroPro to protect them from attack by wood rotting fungi and insects, thereby reducing the risk of complaints at a later date. MicroPro complies with BS 8417:2011 Usage Class 2, and carries a 60-year life expectancy, giving you further peace of mind.

BS5534 compliant for use as part of a timber roofing structure to support concrete roof tiles clay roof tiles, fibre cement slates and natural slates in accordance with BS 5534 : 2003 + A1 : 2010.

Each length of batten has been assessed and graded to ensure compliance with the requirements of BS 5534 : 2003 + A1 : 2010, and has been colour dyed red to enable easy differentiation from standard 'green' non BS5534 compliant batten,.

The battens are manufactured from timber selected from approved sources in accordance with BS 5534 : 2003 + A1 : 2010 and graded by an optical grading machine prior to the application of a blue preservative treatment.
