Cavibat Cladding Cavity Batten is an extruded fluted batten designed for use as a non-structural cavity batten in cavity-based wall cladding systems on timber-framed buildings. It creates an 18mm cavity, providing a secondary means of weather resistance by separating the cladding from the external wall framing, as well as providing an unobstructed path for any occasional ingress of water.
Cavibat cavity battens for cladding can also be utilised as a roof ventilation system to provide passive ventilation for pitched and skillion roofs. Refer to Cavibat Roof Ventilation Batten for details.
