At the heart of the JSC Clipp® Batten System lies its unparalleled ease of installation and maintenance, seamlessly marrying practicality with natural elegance. Designed to effortlessly integrate with the lightweight Grad® aluminium system, this innovative solution drastically reduces installation timeframes when compared with traditional timber batten systems, whilst showcasing the beauty of sustainably sourced timber battens. With common species such as Western Hemlock, TMT Taiga, Western Red Cedar, TMT Taxon, and more available, architects and designers have a range of colours and grains to choose from, ensuring each project is tailored to perfection. Additionally, the system's patented clipping mechanism allows for effortless removal and replacement of individual battens as needed, streamlining maintenance routines without compromising on aesthetics. Say goodbye to complex installation processes and hello to streamlined maintenance with the JSC Clipp® Batten System.

Beyond its practical advantages, the JSC Clipp® Batten System also delivers on aesthetics. With deliberate spacing between battens and a range of sizes available, architects and designers have the flexibility to customise the system to suit their unique design visions. The result? A seamless, fixture-free finish.
