Timber Center

Melbros offer the full package as a timber and joinery centre. With our in-house joinery workshop and in-store timber cutting & treatment services, whether you need hardwood or softwood, we have the timber solution for you.

We offer sheet materials and structural timber for building and roofing purposes, softwoods and hardwoods for internal structural or second fix works as well as timber products for gardens.

Roofing Batterns

Treated roofing battens (or roofing lath) are used to provide the fixing point for roofing sheet or roof tiles.

Melbros stock tanalised treated roof batten in three sizes:

• 25 x 50mm Fully Graded & Stamped to BS5534
• 25 x 50mm
• 25 x 38mm
• 19 x 38mm

The orientation and spacing of the battens depend on the type of roof. Battens may be oriented at right angles to the trusses or rafters of a roof like purlins.

They may be parallel to the slope of the roof, as on a batten-seam roof, where the battens cover seams in the roofing material and are themselves covered by metal caps.

Some roofs may use a grid of battens in both directions, known as a counter-batten system.
