Manufactured Lengths and Joins

All CT battens sections are made on mandrels with a limited length.

Joins are included as per the following tables.

CT22 – Max mandrel length 6.95m
Overall Batten Length Joins included
6.95m 1
CT33/36 – Max mandrel length 8.2m
Overall Batten Length Joins included
< 8.2m 0
> 8.2m 1
16.2m + 2
CT40 – Max mandrel length 9.75m
Overall Batten Length Joins included
< 9.75m 0
> 9.75m 1
19.3m + 2

If any additional joins are required on top of the number specified in the tables above, these will incur an additional charge. It is possible to shift the join in order to optimise shipping length. Two examples:

  1. An 11.6m CT33 batten can have the join positioned @ 5.8m (with a 5.8m back) in order to be air freighted. This would not incur the additional charge of an extra join
  2. A 12.5m CT36 batten being shipped @ 6m would require an extra join in order to be shipped. This would be in three sections: 5.8m Front 5.8m middle and 0.9m back. So one extra join would be charged. 50mm Packaging allowance is added to all batten lengths.
Joiner Types

Depending on the position of the joiner it will require an external joiner on top of the internal joiner.

A rough guide:

Distance of join from back Internal Joiner External Joiner
< 1.0m Yes No
> 1.0m Yes Yes
