LYSAGHT TOPSPAN® 22

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.

  • High strength and light weight
  • Won’t shrink warp, twist or burn
  • Compatible with all popular domestic ceiling plasterboards

Note:

  • Store LYSAGHT TOPSPAN® 22 clear of the ground under cover to prevent water and/or condensation being trapped between adjacent surfaces
  • Do not walk on battens between joists.

LYSAGHT TOPSPAN® 40

Product Description and Features

LYSAGHT TOPSPAN® 40 is a 40mm deep profile used as a roofing batten for residential tiled roof or steel roof. It is commonly called a “roofing batten”.

The top flange of the profile has an embossed surface to make it easier for the steel roofing screws to grip and ‘bite-in’ without slippage during awkward and steep installation angles (up to 25 degrees). Furthermore the embossment improves the slip resistance when the roofers are walking up the roof structure during the placement of the roof tiles or steel roofing.

The lips of the bottom flanges are rounded for improved safety during handling and installation by the tiler trades. The ends of each length are mitre cut for simple installation at hip and valleys. Nominal lapping (non-structural) is simple and will ensure continuity and straightness of fastener alignment.

  • High strength and light weight
  • Straight and true
  • Won’t shrink, warp, twist or warp
  • The ends of each length are mitre cut for simple installation at hip and valleys
  • Embossed top flange is slip resistant and enables roofing screws to “bite-in” without slippage.

Note:

  • LYSAGHT TOPSPAN® 40 will support normal installation foot traffic when used in accordance with recognised installation and safety guidelines
  • Store LYSAGHT TOPSPAN® 40 clear of the ground and on a slight slope to ensure draining

LYSAGHT TOPSPAN® 61

Product Description and Features

LYSAGHT TOPSPAN® 61 is a 61mm deep profile used in the smaller framed shed and awnings market and is a convenient size to satisfy the niche market need of a section between a small purlin and large batten.

It is popular in the residential and rural markets and has found other applications such as framing, long-span plasterboard battens, fencing and handyman applications. It is commonly called a “garage batten”.

The bottom flanges have two longitudinal stiffeners/grooves for improved performance, but also act as a guide for the correct positioning of the fixing fasteners. Lapping (structural) is simple and will ensure continuity and straightness and further improve the capacity of the configuration. The lapping results in a precise snug fit without deformation of the profile and only nominal step at the lap.

  • Won’t burn, warp, twist, splinter or rot and won’t be attacked by termites
  • Made from high tensile Australian steel
  • Fast and easy to install because they can be lapped
  • Consistent straightness simplifies alignment
  • Fastening is quick and easy with self drilling screws
  • Easily stacked, stored and transported
  • Can be used as battens for ceilings or roofs, or as light steel sections

Note:

  • Store LYSAGHT TOPSPAN® 61 clear of the ground and on a slight slope to ensure draining
  • Bundles should not be exposed in the open for extended periods

LYSAGHT TOPSPAN® 120

Product Description and Features

LYSAGHT TOPSPAN® 120 is a 120mm deep profile used as a roof purlin or wall girt. It is commonly used in the rural, residential and small commercial market for shed, garages and awnings where longer spans or strength is required. It is commonly used in lieu of the smaller and lighter gauge traditional Cee and Zed purlins. It is commonly called a “rural purlin”.

Its versatility has resulted in applications other than a purlin such as shelving and flooring.. Strong and rigid, LYSAGHT TOPSPAN® 120 is maintained even when lapped because the profile permits a precise, snug lap without the need to deform the section’s shape.

  • Can be used as an alternative to light gauge purlins and girts (steel or timber)
  • Won’t burn, warp, twist, splinter or rot and it won’t be attacked by termites
  • Versatile, economical, easily handled and stored simply by stacking
  • Can be mounted directly onto rafters or against columns without the use of cleats or bolts
  • The webs have two longitudinal stiffeners for improved web strength and thus improved profile capacity.
