Batten Strips

Batten Strips

Condensation, frost and ice buildup can cause damage and increase operating costs for walk-in coolers and freezers. These unwanted formations occur when water vapor penetrates through openings or cracks from the outside and eventually cause panel joints to swell and separate.

Damaged panels will result in decreased performance, poor energy use and a shortened life for the walk-in.

Batten strips are a simple, cost-effective solution for walk-ins displaying damage or wear and tear.

HOW TO ORDER

How do batten strips work?

Batten Strip Before Application

Serving as protective barriers, batten strips are engineered to reseal panel joints and reinsulate walk-ins, slowing down the effects of damaged panels, improving appearance and extending longevity. They do so by defending walk-ins from vapor infiltration, condensation development and icing of joint spaces.

Batten strips are constructed of a 26-gauge metal strip and polystyrene foam. They are attached to existing panel joints using screws and butyl to provide a lean layer of insulation. The strips measure approximately five inches wide and are available in white or natural color.

Installation takes place onsite.

Batten Strip After Application

Applications

Offering a simple solution, battens can reseal wall-to-wall joints, top-to-walls-and-corners joints, and walls-to-floors joints. They can be mounted internally or externally; however, an external application is most effective in keeping hot air and condensation out of the walk-in’s joints.
