Exterior and interior application


The modular system uses mounting rails with clips at pre-determined spacings to fix the aluminium battens in place. The battens use a simple push-fit connection to engage with the clips, resulting in fast installation and completely concealed fixings.

Our Click-on Batten system allows you to specify a combination of our profiles, finishes and any spacing required to create a look unique to your project.

Use our online Price & Spec tool to quickly specify projects, using the simple drag and drop interface to create your design. Price and specification data is generated in real-time, then easily exported in PDF format.

Our ceiling batten system provides a perfect opportunity to introduce acoustic performance into your space. The system does this by utilising the batten spacing for acoustic diffusion in conjunction with our proprietary acoustic backing board that is positioned above the battens. By adding any available acoustic batts above our acoustic backing board the acoustic performance will be increased.


Trims and additional supports

If your project requires a seismic rating per AS 1170.4, additional supports and struts may be required. Consult your suspended ceiling system provider or engineer to ensure compliance.


Wind loads

Additional supports and struts may be required. Consult your suspended ceiling system provider or engineer to ensure compliance.



A backing material above the battens may be required for aesthetics only, a combination of acoustics and aesthetics (as per our proprietary acoustic backing) or in the case of soffits, wire mesh for bird proofing. Any material layer can be effectively applied.



Our batten system allows several options when dealing with access requirements. These methods are similar for solid timber battens and aluminium battens. Battens are usually cut on site to ensure the required panel dimensions. Timber and aluminium battens require different cutting techniques and it is important to use the correct equipment and blades.
