Batten Bars are used when fitting a flat roof that adjoins a wall i.e., single story extension, to ensure that the Rubberall EPDM membrane fits snugly up to the adjoining wall.
The Batten Bar is 3.1mtrs long with fabricated holes for ease of fixing
For the best results:-
Place and fix the batten bar to the wall as close to the base as possible, as apposed to the flat roof as this will ensure a firm and better waterproofing fix
This prevents tearing with the expansion and contraction of the rubber during varied temperature changes
Fix the Batten bar over the membrane excess to create a flashing
Fold the excess rubber back over the batten bar using a solvent based adhesive to secure to the aluminium Batten Bar, smoothing it down to give a crisp, professional finish to the upstand.
