Blue Batten Graded to BS 5534
Our Blue Batten range complies with BS 5534 and are factory graded to provide a superior and consistent batten.
Roofing battens must meet the recommendations stated in BS 5534 in terms of their species, permissible characteristics and defects such as knots, splits, slope of grain, rate of growth and wane. The grading also includes clear tolerance limits on batten, specifying they must never be less than 25mm deep with the following tolerances:
Plus 3mm / Minus 0mm on the dept
Plus / Minus 3mm on the width
In short, by using a roofing batten graded to BS 5534 customers can ensure they meet minimum requirements whilst spending less time on site sorting product, less product waste and they will be minimising any health and safety risks.
