Redesigned Furring Strips

Benjamin Obdyke has completely redesigned its Batten UV furring strips with improved compression resistance well-suited to open-joint cladding systems.

The new Batten UV strips are designed to maintain a 3/8” space even with the screw-fastening required for composite decking, which is often used to create trendy open-joint cladding systems. The compression resistance mimics that of a wood furring strip, but with the added benefits of air flow and moisture resistance.

The new Batten UV features a notched design that provides multi-directional airflow to help keep the wall cavity dry and allow drainage in rainscreen applications.
