Ventilated plastic battens

Recommended Posts

hi I have watched a couple of vids recently where a plastic batten with holes in it has been used behind cladding, it provides a good air flow and obviously doesn’t rot like a timber batten could

 

anybody used or know where I would look at buying them. 

Cheers russ.

How big are the ventilation holes? Would they be prone to insects clogging them up?

I have used the perforated metal stuff from James Hardie.  They do a bottom profile which gives a kick to the first row of cladding or slate and a l shaped top profile.

I don’t think so as they would be behind cladding protected by insect screening top and bottom

Can you provide a link to that @Mr Punter, I can't find it.
