Ventilated Wall Battens

                                              State of the Art Rain Screen

New Oregon Code R703.1 Requires Furring Strips Behind Siding

A new building code in Oregon, R703.1. requires a rain screen (air space) behind all exterior cladding (siding).  El Dorado Battens can be used to meet this new requirement. 

"We did a prototype house to see how it would work. The battens are very light -- you can carry a load of them up on a ladder -- and they can be cut with a utility knife. In addition to saving money on the battens, there are labor savings, and also fastener savings, since we don’t have to use stainless-steel sinkers. -- Renaissance Homes
