Sturdi-Batten™ - Drainable Rainscreen Batten Strip

Cor-A-Vent Sturdi BattenThe NEW addition to Cor-A-Vent's Rainscreen Siding Vent System

Sturdi-Batten™ -- For use behind Vertical, Panel & Shake siding

The Sturdi-Batten Advantages
  • DURABLE: Three plys of heat-resistant PP plastic create a 7/16” thick batten strip that won’t crack or compress like “drainage mat” style products when power-nailed, screwed or stapled in place.
  • VERSATILE: Use with a number of applications, including vertical siding, panel siding and cedar shakes.
  • RELIABLE: Vertically-oriented airways allow both moisture drainage and drying airflow between your siding and housewrap, adding life to your home's exterior
  • ECONOMICAL: Save money using Sturdi-Battens instead of drainage mats, which must be applied to the entire wall. Sturdi-Battens can be installed only as often as required by your siding manufacturer's recommendations, meaning lower cost. -- NOTE: For 16" on-center installation you'll need one linear ft. of Sturdi-Battens for every square ft. of wall space you are covering.

  • Easy-to-handle 4-foot long sections

  • Color: Black
  • Heat-resistant: made from profile extruded polypropylene plastic
  • Impact-resistant: screw, staple or power-nail in place
  • Crush-resistant: Will not compress like "drainage mat" products
