What is the difference between treated and untreated timber battens?

Untreated timber roof battens are more susceptible to rot and decay, while treated timber roof battens are complimented with preservatives that protect them against fungal decay, insect attack, and other weathering effects. At Harlow Bros, you will only find treated timber battens.

What is BS5534 grading for timber battens?

BS 5534 is the code of practice for installing slates and tiles to new-build pitched roofs and vertical cladding. This standard provides the roofing industry with best practice guidance on the installation of a roof. Graded to BS534:2003 A1:2010, it is optical graded and treated with a blue coloured preservative.

BS5534 grading is important for timber roof battens because it ensures that they meet the necessary load-bearing requirements for the specific roofing application. Some load-bearing requirements include load-bearing capacity, bending strength, stiffness, and durability.
