Batten and Counter Batten

Timber products are a versatile and sustainable building material option that offer strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal. Batten and counter batten are two popular timber products used in construction and renovation projects.

Batten refers to a narrow strip of timber that is typically used for structural support or as a decorative element. It is commonly used for cladding, fencing, and roofing applications. Batten provides stability and strength to the overall structure and can be easily installed and maintained.

Counter batten, on the other hand, is a horizontal timber strip that is installed over the top of the batten. It is used to create a cavity between the cladding material and the underlying structure. This cavity allows for proper ventilation and drainage, preventing moisture buildup and potential damage to the building.

Both batten and counter batten are available in various sizes, lengths, and timber species to suit different project requirements. They can be treated to enhance their resistance to decay, insects, and weathering, ensuring long-lasting performance.

With their natural beauty and durability, timber batten and counter batten products are an excellent choice for enhancing the visual appeal and functionality of any building project.
