ctech platebattens title

C-Tech PlateBattens are superior solid composite battens. This range is designed for use where strength and weight saving are a top priority. C-Tech PlateBattens are available as full-length, leech and vertical leech battens.

Design Advantages

C-Tech’s R&D programme is in continual progression to refine existing products, introduce new materials and develop new breakthroughs. C-Tech leads development for classes like the foiling moth and works closely with top sailors. We can work together to find a winning solution for your needs.

Performance with durability are paramount at C-Tech. Our unique manufacturing process blends fibre from carbon at the leech to S-glass at the tip, producing strong flexible tips without extra weight.

Custom software is used to design all C-Tech platebattens, which allows laminate layers to be adjusted to tailor stiffness and draft position.

Laminates are tapered during production; therefore, C-Tech PlateBattens do not need grinding. Continuous outside layers make C-Tech PlateBattens stronger and reduce the risk of delamination or splintering.

Full-length and Leech C-Tech PlateBattens

Full-length battens have carbon cloth outer layers. Draft position 40-45%. Made from 100% pre-preg carbon fibre cured at 120°c. Avaliable in stock lengths 1,000 to 4,500mm long.

full length platebatten

Leech battens have unidirectional S-glass outside layers. Maximum draft postion 35%. Made from a blend of carbon fibre and s-glass, a higher percentage of s-glass near the tip provides flexible, durable battens. Avaliable in stock lengths 1,000mm to 3,500mm.

There are three methods you can specify C-Tech platebattens

1. Convert from existing battens to C-Tech PlateBattens using conversion charts.

If you are currently using a batten with a known EI value, you can specify a C-Tech PlateBatten with the closest EI. Click here for Conversion charts and five point EI for the complete range of full length and leech battens.

2. Request C-Tech PlateBattens for a new sail based on C-Tech standard sets.

Our sales team can specify a set of C-Tech PlateBattens for a given yacht type using our experience and database of previously supplied boats.

3. Bend test existing battens to calculate EI value.

Measure the stiffness (EI) of your existing battens using the method detailed here. We strongly recommend to only bend test the back half of the batten to ensure the taper does not influence the results. Use a weight that will deflect the batten to approximately 10% camber. Once the EI values have been established you will have a reference point to specify C-Tech PlateBattens from the tables. Click here for full five point EI tables of the C-Tech PlateBatten range.

We're ready to meet your specific PlateBatten requirements.
