What distance does my last batten need to be from the top of the roof?

What distance does my last batten need to be from the top of the roof?

The values below are based on the approximate distance from the top of the roof to the top of the batten.

Double Lap Tiles such as Hardrow and Plain Tiles use a Tops Tile. The batten for this usually sits on edge underneath the top of the last course of tiles, and the Tops Tiles nail into this. The quantities below are based on the last course of tile rather than to the tops course.

 Tile  Last Batten
 Centurion / Senator  38-50mm
 Gemini / Minislate  38-50mm
 Hardrow Slate  100-110mm
 Concrete Plain Tile  50-60mm
 V2  38-50mm
