Preconstruction termite barrier installation is a crucial step in safeguarding a building from potential termite infestations. The process involves several stages to ensure effective protection against these destructive pests.
The first step is carried out prior to the concrete slab pour. During this phase, pipe penetration collars will be installed. These collars act as protective barriers around pipes and utility openings in the foundation, preventing termites from gaining access through these vulnerable points. This initial measure is essential to create a solid foundation for the subsequent termite barrier installation.
After the completion of the slab pour and external drainage work, our Australian made termite barrier is installed on the slab. The barrier offers a highly effective triple-layer sheet barrier which uses a combination of physical and chemical properties to ensure termites are repelled into an inspection zone.
Once the termite barrier is successfully installed, the property owner or builder will receive a certification of installation from Sydney Pest Crew. This certification serves as evidence that the termite barrier has been correctly installed and meets the required standards for termite prevention under Australian Standards.
Having obtained the certification, the property owner can then submit it to the local council as part of the documentation required to receive the final occupation certificate. The final occupation certificate signifies that the building complies with all relevant regulations and can be legally occupied. It also provides peace of mind to the occupants, knowing that their property is safeguarded against the potentially devastating effects of termite infestations.
Both chemical and physical barriers can be created to force the pests into an area where they can be readily detected. We use industry-standard procedures to prevent insects from getting access to the hidden areas.
The treatment is important during pre-construction because it is only during this phase that it can reach all the places. Access to such spots can become impossible after the construction is finished. This also prevents your family and guests from coming in contact with the applications.
At Sydney Pest Crew, we work together with builders, owners, and developers. We make recommendations on the best pre-construction pest and termite control options. We ensure the effectiveness of all the pest management services we provide.
