Roofing Batten Availability
Guernsey Building Control have issued the following notice:
“Providing stress graded timber (c24) has been used to produce the roofing battens and all cut edges are re treated with a suitable wood preservative Building Control will consider that the requirements of Regulation 11 ‘Materials and Workmanship’ will have been satisfied.
Clearly a coloured preservative would be beneficial to identify that all surfaces have been coated.”
This treatment should be completed on site and we have the products readily available in which to use. If in doubt, please speak to a member of our team.
There are currently plenty of stock of this product so please only purchase what you need.

VapR-free Xtra is a multi layer laminate film composite made of polyolefin materials, resulting in a pitched roof underlay that has high vapour permeability but is also highly water resistant. Suitable for both Commercial and Domestic buildings, it is the ideal roof underlay for Warm and Cold Pitched Roofs.
VapR-free Xtra membrane has received BBA Approval and complies with BS5534-2014 Code of Practice for slating and tiling and NFRCTB6.

Vent3 is a triple layer fabric, high performance breather membrane, made from high tensile spun bonded polypropylene layers, around a micro porous polypropylene film.
