Dinghy Full Batten Range is based on HEX profiles, except *stiff/ x-stiff battens which are available either tapered 10mm round rod or crusiform (gauge) profiles.

The HEX Profiles have a durability advantage because of the designed flat surfaces which handle flexural stresses over a wider area.

10mm Rod is a good choice for uniformity, but the tapered portion of the batten will carry the flexible loading better than untapered portion.

Gauge (Cruciform) should be specified if a weight saving of approx. 8% over 10mm rod is desired.

It is not necessary to specify gauge type or Hex profile number in this pretapered range - stiffness is predetermined. (See the LBS columns in the table above).
