The timeless board and batten look has been a popular trend for the exteriors of homes and other buildings for decades. While you used to only be able to achieve this look with wood, today, you can easily get the board and batten style with the strength and longevity of steel. Board and batten metal panels will change the way you look at this classic siding.
Historically speaking, board and batten originated as a type of siding, typically made out of wood. Board and batten creates an appearance of a layered façade, with narrow strips (batten) connecting wider boards. The alternation between wide and narrow boards creates a paneling, geometric style that has been around for years and years.
Today, the board and batten look can be achieved with more than just wood. Board and batten metal panels are becoming increasingly popular because of the way they create the desired aesthetic without all of the maintenance wood requires. Metal panels will give your siding the performance and durability you need without sacrificing the style you want.
Bridger Steel has two Batten panel profiles available: Ultra Batten and Snap Batten. Each profile resembles a board and batten look, with just a few slight differences that make them unique from one another.
The Ultra Batten panels have bold rib designs that mimic and resemble the board and batten look. Designed with a concealed fastener and floating clip system, these panels are incredibly diverse and work well in almost any environment. These panels can withstand heavy snow and high-speed wind with ease. Here are some need-to-know facts about Ultra Batten panels:
