Kordon termite barrier when installed

Kordon Termite Barriers

When it comes to termites, it is paramount to take the appropriate action against them as early as pre-construction. Bob Gunn Termite Solutions knows how important prevention is, which is why we offer reliable termite protection that can match your situation and meet your specific needs.

One of the most effective termite prevention solutions we offer is the instalment of a Kordon barrier. Read on and learn more about this game-changing product designed by Bayer.

What Is a Kordon Termite Barrier?


A flexible laminate sheet, Kordon is a durable physical and chemical barrier between your home and the soil, shielding you from subterranean termites. It is made up of two tough layers with deltamethrin in between, a chemical that highly repels termites but has low toxicity to man and animals.

When and Where Is Kordon Installed?


During the construction process, Kordon is placed under your home and layered into areas that are easily accessible to termites without detection. These areas include concrete slab cracks, pipes sticking through slabs into the soils and tunnelling under your home’s footing.

What Can Be Expected Once Kordon Has Been Installed?


Termites, particularly those that enter properties through the soil, are forced to travel and create tunnels (or mud tracks) outside. This makes their activity visible and easier to detect, especially during annual inspections.

A Kordon termite barrier not only helps our team address your termite issue prior to the occurrence of any structural damages, but it also gives you the peace of mind you deserve. For more information about this form of barrier, contact us today or visit the Kordon website – http://www.kordonwarrantycentre.com.au.

Reticulation Systems VS Termites

What Is a Reticulation System?


Reticulation systems have the main purpose of protecting properties from subterranean termite infestations. Utilizing pipes, a reticulation system treats areas under concrete slabs and replenishes termite-treating chemicals to the soil.

At Bob Gunn Termite Solutions, we use the Altis reticulation system. Unlike others, their reticulation utilises flexible unperforated pipes that are fabricated with emitters. These emitters dispense chemical evenly at a measured rate to the whole system.

When Should Reticulation Systems Be Installed?


It is preferred for reticulation systems to be installed to a building’s perimeter right after construction and before any added slabs are placed. They can be fitted to an existing building too. However, extra concrete slabs will have to be cut. If this can’t be done, the concrete areas will need to be bored into and injected, much like the process of traditional liquid termiticide barriers.

What Are the Benefits of Reticulated Termite Rechargeable Systems?


Reticulation…

• (particularly that of Altis) ensures that chemicals are evenly applied at accurately designed rates, unlike old-fashioned hand spraying that may be illegal in some parts of the country.

• significantly minimises exposure to chemicals that are pumped after the completion of a construction.

• replaces/recharges the treatment without any disturbance, excavation or drilling.

• gives you substantial cost benefits over time as recharge expenses are considerably lower than a drill and trench retreatment.

• enables you to take advantage of advances in chemicals throughout the life of the system.

• can be utilised as a comprehensive system to new constructions with pipes under the floor and around the perimeter or on established buildings.

• can be utilised as an exterior perimeter to supplement other termite management methods and add convenience of maintenance.

Concreters, Don’t Let Termites Infiltrate Your Barrier!

Termites may not be able to eat through concrete but they can still gain access to a home via cracks in slabs, edges of slabs or service pipes. If you need the assurance that your slab isn’t going to let the termites in, you’ve come to the right place.

3 Main Termite Barriers in Brisbane

The three main termite barriers employed in Australia are the following:

• Physical
• Chemical
• Visual

One of these barriers on its own may not be enough to satisfy the Australian Standard AS 3660, as is the case with the visual barrier. It may be that you will need to incorporate one system with another to ensure that termite invasion is reduced.

So let’s take a look at the systems and break them down. Read more

Termite Protection: It’s the Law in New Homes

Because these tiny and quiet critters like to live in secret, dark places, termites have the potential to wreak havoc in your home without you even knowing. Many homeowners discover that they have termites in the house only after finding the damage they have caused. Usually, they are spotted by accident while simple chores are being done.

There is not much you can do once they are in your home but carry out repairs and have your home chemically treated by a service professional such as Bob Gunn Termite Solutions.

The bill to repair the damage can run into thousands, if not tens of thousands. This is why the National Construction Code (NCC), formerly the Building Codes of Australia (BCA), has set down very clear boundaries and guidelines surrounding termite treatment of new homes being built. The Australian Standard (AS) 3660.1 was introduced in 1995 and now, all new homes must satisfy this standard to achieve a building final certificate.

Chemically Impregnated Fibre Blankets

Chemically impregnated fibre blankets are the termite protection of choice when it comes to new home construction. There are several termite barrier blankets on the market, which are all constructed in the same way.

There is a dense layer of webbed fibre containing a synthetic pyrethroid called deltamethrin. This chemically treated fibre blanket is laminated between two layers of UV stabilised plastic membrane.

This style of termite protection is much safer as the low-level chemical is contained within the plastic membrane so it has little chance of escaping into the environment. It is also a very cost-effective way to treat your home against termite invasion as it is easy to install during the building process.

At Bob Gunn Termite Solutions, the range of termite solutions we offer is so wide-ranging that we’re sure to have the right product for your home. Get ahold of us today! Our licensed and experienced pest management technicians possess sound knowledge in administering and installing physical pre-construction barriers, chemical barriers and baiting systems.
