CAVIBAT® innovative design is the latest solution in the quest to safeguard your investment.

CAVIBAT® protects the integrity of your building by providing a cavity batten that acts as a total moisture barrier and thermal break between the external cladding and the framework.

CAVIBAT® unique design allows for both horizontal and vertical air ventilation through the batten itself, as well as providing an unobstructed path for any water droplets to drain from the wall cavity.

CAVIBAT® is suitable for use with most cladding materials and systems, providing superior durable protection for timber and steel framed buildings.

Cladding to be fixed through the battens into framework with nails or screws at normal cladding manufacturers specifications.

Fixing Batten to Timber Studs.

Use a finishing gun to tack the battens to the framing. Nail as close as possible to the webbing in the batten and adjust the gun until the head of the nail sits slightly below the surface.

Note: The batten has one side stronger than the other. For the best result keep the thicker side outward.

Fixing Cladding to Timber Studs.

Nail through the cladding and batten into the studs or nogs. Follow manufacturers specifications on fixing centres and nail sizes.

Nails should be 20mm longer than would be used for direct fixing.

Fixing Batten to Steel Studs.

Use a finishing gun to tack the battens to the frame. Adjust the gun height until the head of the nail sits slightly below the surface.

Note: The insulation side of the batten must be against the framing.

Fixing Cladding to Steel Studs.

Nail or screw through the cladding and batten into the framing. Follow cladding manufacturers specifications on fixing centres and nail or screw sizes.

Nails and screws should be 20mm longer than would be used for direct fixing.
