Timber frame restoration

Triangular battens

Larch wood battens for connecting between masonry and timber-frame beams. The cross section is sufficiently flexible and adaptable even for old and irregular beams. The height corresponds exactly to the thickness of the clay mortar joint at the end of the open space. The larch wood is stable, durable and easily nailed.
