Timber battens are fitted vertically to your property wall with spaces of 600mm between the centre of each batten. Single fixing battens are recommended to be 75mm x 38mm and joint battens are recommended to be 100mm x 38mm. There must be a minimum of a 10mm space from the top of the vertical batten to the top of the wall and a 150mm space at the bottom of the batten to the floor.
