Termimesh  termite control barrier was recently specified by the RAAF to protect the new buildings at the Amberley Base from termites.

Many thousands of square metres of mesh was supplied for the project and installed to all concrete slab penetrations before concrete pour. It was also utilised on saw joints, and doweled joints (all concrete joints). The termite control barrier was also applied to the perimeter block work and adjoining pathways to prevent concealed entry by termites.

Chris Faint, Manager of Termimesh in Ipswich explained that the hospital refurbishment was extremely complex as it required retrofitting the termite barrier in numerous areas that required very different types of installation.

Termimesh staff worked on the project for the entire duration of Stage Three works, with a team of four installers, Manager, Pest Division Manager, Operations manager and administration ensuring the needs of multiple packages, multiple head Contractors and tight timeframes all round could be accommodated.

A team of four Termimesh staff worked throughout Stage Three works and coordinated with numerous other trades on site to ensure adoption of each Contractor’s unique OH&S systems were adhered to.

Termimesh is a physical termite barrier using woven stainless steel mesh that prevents termites from entering a home through concealed entry points.
