Thats a great post, I'm a chippy! Am I correct when setting battens for EML that the batten only needs to thick enough ie 12mm or less to allow the render to push through in order to grip on, when the need for ventilation is negated by various vapor/waterproof barriers.

yes, you just need the render to be able to wrap behind the EML
