VB10 - Ventilation and Drainage Batten

Categories: ,

Vented Batten (VB10) is a Polypropylene Ventilation and Drainage Batten designed to facilitate passive airflow and cavity drainage between the roofing underlay or membrane and the roof cladding. The VENT VB10 prevents the transfer of dew point from the underside of the roofing underlay or membrane. The VB10 Ventilation & Drainage Batten is compatible with steel and timber framing.

  • Peel-off adhesive backing for temporary fixing, hence reducing labour time and cost.
  • It is manufactured with recommended 4mm vents which make it ideal as a roof perimeter batten as it will repel the ingress of nesting insects.
  • Strong and durable – when used as a vented batten on top of roofing battens, the VENT VB10 has been upgraded in strength and tested to exceed foot traffic weight requirements on the roof above.

It is ideal for residential and commercial, skillion and trussed roofs.

Refer to the DriSpace Moisture Management Design Guide for more information on managing dew point condensation.
