Pre-Construction

At Bob Gunn Termite Solutions we provide termite protection for pre construction, which includes

  • A chemically impregnated fibre blanket within a plastic membrane top and bottom which is designed to repel termites
  • Mesh internal slab penetrations
  • Altis reticulation system

Please note that a free site assessment quote can be arranged to discuss your needs for your new building project.

Once the system has been installed it is very important that regular competent termite inspections be carried out at least once a year.

Physical Barriers

Pre-Construction Termite Prevention Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast QLD

Access of termites to the main structure of the house can be prevented using physical barriers, such as impregnated plastic termite collars, steel mesh, impregnated termite stones, graded granite stone and metal shielding. These barriers either completely block off the path, or have very small openings for termites to enter.

Granite particles are too heavy to be moved by termites and, when positioned properly, the granite particles form very small voids that termites cannot pass through. Metal shielding creates a termite-proof barrier. An “ant cap” may not completely stop termites from entering the property, however, it allows the termite to form a visible bridge that can be easily seen during regular inspections.

Metal shielding creates an impervious barrier. A correctly designed ‘ant cap’ will not prevent termites from gaining access to a house or building. However, it will cause termites to form a visible bridge over the cap, which can be readily detected during regular, competent inspections and warn of their presence.

Reticulation Systems

Reticulation Systems are specifically designed to treat areas under concrete slabs and around the external perimeter of structures to prevent termites entering from the outside of a building. These systems are ideal when it comes to protection against infestation by subterranean termites.
