Gonna go ahead and insulate my inside garage walls, wanting to put 100mm celotex on the walls with a cavity gap of around 50mm

Ill be putting the battens at 400 mm gaps along the wall with a 50mm gap behind them with blocks of wood to keep them of the wall to create the cavity gap

Just wondering what size vertical battens you guys would recommend for the job?

thanks all

Seeing as it's not load bearing and is also supported by being attached to the wall 2x2 would be adequate . Or you could go for say 4x2 and have the studwork not tied to the brickwork , it would be ridged enough to be completely free standing and having no connection should improve the sound insulation if that's an issue although sound may very well still find its way around.

Totally agree with the 4x2, 2x2 will be too supple.

As for my previous joking answer I thought you were talking about the pieces of insulation, not the wood framing, my bad.
In any case, it is always worth asking around, and hunting for unsold insulation stock. I scored most of the 15cm glass fibre for one side of my house for a fraction of the price because it was the returns of a construction site that had been ordered at an unconventional width - and pretty much unsaleable.
