Battens are suitable in application where it is necessary to raise the floor to a desired level, or where dampness may be a issue, as they allow air to flow under the boards.

Battens are generally fitted to the concrete slab at 450 mm spacings and are fixed using glue and fasteners.

19mm flooring is used in this application to provide adequate strength, preventing boards from moving and splitting.      

Door frames are cut at the base to enable the boards to slide in the gap enabling a neat finish leaving no gaps.

The boards are installed, with the joins located in the centre of the batten or bearer. A string line is used to ensue that the boards are straight.

The remaining boards are the clamped, checked for straightness once again and then fixed in position.

Trims are then installed along the walls allowing a small gap between the board and the wall to prevent any movement.

This process is then repeated throughout the determined area until finished. 

Note "The timber should be allowed to sit for at least 10 days prior to the sealing process to enable the timber to stabilise"
