Physical termite barriers

It is estimated that termites may do as much damage as other natural disasters such as tornadoes, fires, floods and more. Even a building slab built to strict standards can sometimes crack, allowing termites to enter your home from beneath, undetected.

A Western Exterminator Physical Termite Barrier is installed as a termite and moisture barrier underneath or around the perimeter of the slab and around pipe penetrations. This will prevent subterranean termites, capable of fitting through a gap sized 1.5mm, from entering your property.

Termite barriers offer long-lasting protection for your property without the need to continually top it up with additional chemicals.

What is a physical termite barrier?

A physical termite barrier system is a layer that is placed underneath the slab of your home or building.

  • Termite barriers come in wide sheets which are laid in the same way as a moisture layer before the slab is poured.
  • The termite barrier sheets in are overlapped, sealed with adhesive and taped down with a quality cloth tape.
  • The termite barrier is laid either with complete coverage beneath the slab or around the perimeter of the slab and pipe penetrations, depending on your property and requirements. This creates a termite prevention barrier which stops termites from infesting the wood of your building or home.
