SR Timber PREMIUM GOLD® Batten is our highest grade of roofing batten, incorporating a unique and distinctive gold colouration that does not hide any potential defects that can be found within traditional battens.

SR Timber PREMIUM GOLD® Battens are produced in our own sawmill in Latvia, then imported as a finished product to our timber terminal on the Humber.

Goods produced to the specified requirements in BS 8417:2011+A1:2014 (Preservation of Timber) and BS 5534:2014+A2:2018.

Manufactured full to size in both thickness and depth.

Available in both 25mm x 38mm and 25mm x 50mm profiles and lengths from 3.0m up to 5.4m, in 300mm increments.

Produced from the highest grade, slow grown spruce (Whitewood) Picea abies – or pine (Redwood) Pinus sylvestris – WPPA is the species code covering both species. All supplied from either FSC® or PEFC fully certified or controlled resources.

Raw material is pre-graded prior to processing to enable an even higher finished grade of roofing batten.

Battens visually graded by staff trained to, and conversant with the requirements of BS 5534:2014+A2:2018. The grading process is third party assessed and audited by CATG to ensure it meets the requirements of BS 5534:2014+A2:2018.

  • Dimension
