How your roofing specifications can make a positive contribution to sustainability challenge facing the construction industry.

Product specification from an environmental perspective has never been easier thanks to material sourcing, sustainable manufacturing processes, and innovative technology.

The race is on to find the construction solutions to support the nations decarbonisation ambitions. With the Climate Change Committee stating that the UKs 28 million homes contribute around 14% of the countrys greenhouse gas emissions; building better, more sustainable and energy efficient homes must be a key priority.

Improving the energy efficiency of the UK’s housing stock


With targets set out in Part L to reduce carbon emissions in new homes by 31%, it is widely acknowledged there are several ways that this can be met. Currently one of the most cost-effective is to combine an efficient gas boiler or renewable heat pump alongside a solar PV system that can harness the energy creating prowess of the sun on the roof.

To ensure compliance with regulations and mitigate any health and safety risks, factory graded roofing battens that meet BS 5534 and are produced by an established supplier with a recognised third-party certification should be a key part of your batten selection. Each individual batten will be marked to show it is graded to BS 5534, showing the supplier, origin code and size – all of which are minimum requirements to meet the British Standard.
