The Batten System


Arch-Fab’s battens are fabricated from aluminum and designed with a two-inch deep base. The base is screwed into the wall, and the top part of the 2”, 4”, 6”, or 8” batten interlocks over the base for a seamless look. Decorative end caps produce a sleek, finished edge.

Same size battens can be arranged with no fasteners for a clean style or vary the lengths, sizes, or colors for a more unique design. The Batten System has a wide array of applications for a distinctive look: trellises, wall covers, over windows, feature walls, and more. Available in a variety of durable powder coat finishes, Arch-Fab’s Batten System comes with a warranty of up to 20 years.

With installation guides, videos, and a crew ready to help, the Batten System is easy and efficient for anyone to install.
