Sawn treated timber in smaller sections are commonly known as battens. Roofing battens are available in three common dimensions 25x50mm, 25x38mm and 19x38mm. Imported none graded Battens are usually referred to as Type A. These are not suitable or allowed on NHBC new build sites. Roofing battens or battening, also called roofing lath, are used to provide the fixing point for roofing materials such as shingles or tiles. The spacing of the battens on the trusses or rafters depend on the type of roofing material and are applied horizontally like purlins.
