AS3660.1 and AS3660.2 offers a mixture of physical and chemical treatment systems found to meet BCA requirements. These termite management systems are installed to stop and/or reduce the chance of termites getting into the dwelling through a hidden path.

FACTORY WAREHOUSE - Traditional liquid treatments applied to the soil form an uninterrupted chemical barrier in the soil around both sides of the groundwork to all factories and warehouses, with the soil around the piers that will help the floor system be also protected. This barrier should prevent forage termites from touching the foundation and, ultimately, the wood structures. It ought to be noted that only the soil adjacent to this footing structure is treated.

STEEL FRAMES - A steel frame is tough to termite attack, and a house built with a steel frame without a termite barrier is a moderately safe choice for any builder. We do nevertheless see many unprotected, steel-framed houses with termite infestations across.

This natural structure that are so appealing to termites are made up of skirting boards, in-house walls, built-in joinery, bath & shower voids, wardrobes, floorboard materials and furnishing.

Part b is when the slab has been done, which can be a chemical perimeter barrier/reticulation system/termite blanket / these all can be installed, just depends on what stage of the construction you have arranged a termite company.

TERMITE TREATMENT - Termite treatments (3660.2) using chemicals is called chemical soil treatment and drill injection. This treatment involves laying a barrier through the soil with a chemical called Termidor Fipronil. The treated soil is pointed as a chemical treatment.
