Curved Timber Battens

Our curved timber battens allow designers and main contractors to create buildable, affordable solutions for their curved concepts.

How it works:
Our curved timber integration into our Timber Click-on Batten system combines simple, fast installation with either of our curving options – Steam Bending and Kerfing.

Timber profiles are moulded in our Australian factory with a specially designed groove in the back which serves as the interface between the batten and our patented clip connections. These clips are provided pre-fixed to mounting tracks, which are quickly installed on-site before the battens are clicked into place.

Steam Bending:
Our process takes the traditional art of steam bending timber and applies it on a larger commercial scale. Through a process of steaming and heating, the timber can be formed to the required shape without resistance. After the timber is held in place for the cooling period, it maintains the curved timber form. Suitable for interiors only.

The process of kerfing involves cutting small notches in the back of the timber batten to allow the timber to be flexed around a substructure to create the forms or curves. The timber battens are provided pre-kerfed to site in straight, but flexible lengths. Suitable for interiors and sheltered exteriors.

Features & Benefits

Create large scale curves:
Our curved timber manufacturing methods allow designers to create large scale curves in the beauty of natural timber. Seamless transitions between planes such as a wall and ceiling provide a unique handcrafted aesthetic on a commercial scale.

Systemising the Sculptural
We can manufacture curved timber on such large scale by combining the bending process with our Timber Click-on Battens System. The benefits of the established system carry across, ensuring customisation and fast, accurate installation.

Range of options
To allow unrestricted design with curved timber, we offer two different methods of bending – Steam bending and Kerfing. Each of these methods has a range of strengths, offering a solution that meets the unique requirements of each project.
