JB-RED is a high quality roofing batten and the first fully pre-graded batten available to the roofing industry.

This batten meets the performance requirements of BS5534:2014, and was developed in conjuction with the BRE (Building Research Establishment).

JB-RED completely meets the NHBC requirements for fully graded roofing battens. Its distinctive red colour means that it is highly visible on site, therefore Local Authority Building Control, NHBC and other inspectors can see that high quality, pre-graded roofing battens have been used.

JB-RED is manufactured in the UK using a modern high speed camera and laser scanning machine to ensure maximum reliability.
