Common Questions 

Roofing battens are at the heart of virtually every roofing project. There are, however, a few common questions our customers ask before buying timber battens. Below are answers to each of these!

Which British Standard Must My Roof Battens Meet? 

Battens should comply with BS 5534:2014, which covers virtually all types of roofing applications. This British Standard considers the overall quality of the wood. This includes whether there are any knots, splits or staining throughout. BS 5534:2014 also outlines a maximum moisture content. 

When buying your roofing battens, you must ensure they have documentation to support their compliance with BS 5534. This will confirm the origin, basic size, type of preservative and grade. 


Why Does the Moisture Content Matter? 

Moisture can significantly impact the integrity of wood. The moisture contents of roof battens is therefore strictly regulated, although it can vary per region. BS 5534:2014 requires your timber battens to have a moisture contents below 22%. If a batten exceeds this limit, it will not need the standards required. 

Do My Timber Battens Have to Be Graded? 

Yes, assuming you will be using them for roofing applications. This is as roofing battens must have been graded before they can meet the requirements of British Standards. 'Graded' batten have been throughly checked by hand or laser. This checks that there are no significant flaws in the wood, such as knots or splits.
