Top-Hat profiles are steel hat channel profiles, manufactured from galvanised steel for superior corrosion resistance. These cost-effective steel battens and purlins are compatible with timber and steel trusses for either tile or metal sheeting applications.

MiTek Top-Hat profiles can be used as a batten, purlin, tilting fillet, ceiling brandering, runner, web-cross brace or diagonal brace in both timber and steel roof structures. In addition to being easy to transport (due to its lightweight properties), MiTek Top-Hat profiles are packaged in bundles of ten, enabling space-saving storage and easy handling. Top-Hat profiles are always straight, ensuring a true and level roof.

There are 3 top-hat offerings:

1. 20mm – used as a ceiling brandering.
2. 25mm – used as a tile batten.
3. 40mm – used as a metal sheeting purlin.
