Industry-Leading Termite Management Systems
Today’s environmentally friendly termite control agents, and Termguard’s termite reticulation system are perfect partners. Together, they provide an effective replenishable termite management system that also minimises the total impact on the environment. Subterranean termites are by far the most destructive timber pest in the world, and are responsible for causing the greatest economic losses of timber in Queensland, Australia. All too often, the presence of termites, also known as silent invaders, goes undetected until the damage is done. Though the problem is so severe in Australia, particularly Queensland, most building owners will come to find termite damage is not even covered by most insurance policies. Termguard has the simple solution.
Prevent Attack From Termites
Termguard reticulation systems have been extensively tested, successfully used over the past two decades, and have been specifically designed with the Queensland environment in mind. We offer a long-term termite management and damage prevention system to protect your property. Our systems continuously deliver termite management agents under and around the building which are inaccessible after constructed, avoiding typical termiticide drift and exposure problems.
Perimeter Retreatment and Armoured Shield System
The Perimeter Retreatment and Armoured Shield Penetration System provides a cost-effective option for builders and building owners. The armoured shields protect slab service penetrations while the perimeter of the structure is protected by the Termguard Perimeter Retreatment System.
Our termite management system, Granitgard has been used in Australia since 1992, has been installed around in excess of 200,000 buildings and has proven to be competitive against other systems. The features and approvals that the system has gained can be summarised as follows:
- Included in Australian Standard 3660.1 under its own category (section 7) as a deemed to satisfy system;
- Certified by the Australian Building Codes Board;
- Approved by all Councils throughout Australia;
- Natural and environmentally sustainable product with Greensmart and Environmental Labelling Association endorsement;
- Provides permanent non-chemical protection that does not require re-treatment;
- Fills the cavity and prevents termites from entering the area, roaming around the internal perimeter, or seeking entry points as they can do with other systems;
- Backed by a whole-of-building warranty; and
- Over 90 licensed operators installing the system around Australia.
New buildings can be protected from termites with one treatment of natural, non-toxic Granitgard graded stone physical termite management system. This treatment is easily applied during construction and could save the building from destruction. With a wide range of simple installation methods that are fully approved, Granitgard can protect all common building designs. Granitgard offers long-life, one system termite protection without the worry of toxic chemicals, building schedule delays and on-going re-treatments. Due to the visibility of Granitgard systems, it is easy to determine whether an area has been properly protected. Granitgard’s flexibility means that it will remain effective when the buildings’ service connections, footings, foundations, and walls expand and contract. Granitgard allows building components to move independently without breaking the termite management system or cracking walls, footings and pipes. The specially graded and shaped Granitgard stone particles are used in combination with durable termite resistant strip shielding materials to provide a flexible, non-toxic, long-life termite management system. This termite management system protects buildings by blocking concealed termite access and forcing those termites that are trying to enter the building out into the open where they are visible and can be easily eradicated. Granitgard termite management system does not require replenishment or repairs unless the termite management system has been disturbed, during renovations or plumbing repairs, for example. In situations such as these, the contaminated graded stone should be removed and the termite management system topped up to the appropriate level with fresh stone. This work should only be performed by a licensed Granitgard Installer, like the termite management installers in our Queensland office. Termite shielding may also need to be repaired after renovations or plumbing work. Rest assured, our licensed Granitgard Installer issues new Granitgard Treatment Certificate and Warranty to cover the new work and repairs for Queensland properties.
