Top Hat roofing battens can be used for various purposes in construction projects, both internally and externally. In simple terms, top hats are used for roof purlins or wall grits to span between portals and other structural framing elements, particularly in applications where there is a higher wind loading or where heavy-duty sheeting is to be installed. The load being supported and the wind loading requirements both determine the size of the top hat needed.
Top Hats are lightweight structural sections, perfect for commercial, domestic, and rural construction applications such as framing battens in garages, sheds, fencing, and carports.
They are manufactured in high-tensile galvanized steel for high strength and long life. The ease of lapping and screw fixing makes them highly versatile.

Top Hats are used in virtually any building construction you can think of and aren’t designed just for the occasional building or the most significant construction site in the country at any given time.

These are also used to support the weight of the timber ceiling and wall linings.
They are fixed to the wall columns and roof rafters, and your wall and roof sheeting is then screwed to the battens.
