Manufactured from slow-grown, kiln dried sideboards, JB Red sets the standard for graded roofing battens. JB Red completely meets the NHBC requirements for fully graded roofing battens. Its red colour means that it is highly visible on site, therefore Local Authority Building Control, NHBC and other inspectors can see that high quality, pre-graded and compliant battens have been used. All JB Red has full chain of custody (FSC or PEFC) certification and is available in both 25 x 38mm and 25 x 50mm sizes.
Not all graded batten is the same. It is important to check the quality of other battens on the market to ensure you are roofing to current British standards. The below graded batten checklist will help you decide if your current roofing batten is up to standard. With JB Red you have the peace of mind that it fully complies with BS 5534.
