Product Description and Features

LYSAGHT TOPSPAN® 22 steel ceiling battens are versatile and easy to use, providing strength, lightness and rigidity with low cost. It is a 22mm deep profile used as a ceiling batten for internal fixing of ceiling and wall liner.

The top flange of the profile has an embossed surface to make it easier for the plasterboard screws to grip and “bite-in” without slippage during awkward installation positioning. The lips of the bottom flanges are rounded for improved safety during handling and installation by the plasterboard trades. Nominal lapping (non-structural) is simple and will ensure continuity and straightness of fastener alignment.
