RBS Epoxy Non-tapered / 50% Battens

The RBS non-tapered battens are the perfect solution for dinghy main and jib top battens and are an essential upgrade for mainsail and jib full length top battens where durability is paramount.

As a guide, 10mm widths are primarily used for main and jib battens for Dinghies, smaller One Design classes and performance catamarans. 15mm width battens are used in smaller mains and jibs and beach catamarans.

RBS Batten Code - An example of an RBS order code: E10120/125NT (E-10-120 / 125-NT)
E10120/125NT - The code will always start with E or CB for Epoxy or Carbon.
E10120/125NT - The next 2 numbers represent batten width in millimetres (10mm, 15mm etc).
E10120/125NT - The 3 following numbers are thickness in inches (.120, .140 etc).
E10120/125NT - The next measurement is order length in centimetres (/125 etc).
E10120/125NT - The last letter states the taper with F for flex/leech batten, C a compression/full batten, R a reverse compression for a flat, full entry or NT for non-tapered.

RBS have established themselves at the top of the market with their range of specially formulated epoxy battens, offering ultimate performance and durability whilst still being cost effective. Using the standard batten widths and lengths offers maximum flexibility in batten selection and the use of standardised batten pockets in the loft for maximum production efficiency and flexibility. The basis of the RBS range is their unique epoxy matrix which has allowed them to combine maximum strength for weight, with exceptionally soft batten tips in their leech battens, whilst also increasing durability.

Custom Batten Specifications If you cannot find the specification you require we can offer RBS battens made to order for your specific length, stiffness, taper and finishing, with a lead time of approximatley 10 working days. For an added touch provide us with your logo and/or boat name and have this printed onto the batten. This is particularly great for batten sets.

One Design Batten Sets If you have a one design class you regularly build sails for we can store your batten set specification and allow you to call off sets as you need them that will come trimmed to the correct length with your choice of caps, printed logos and labels to go straight into the sail. Contact us for more information and pricing.
