Physical termite barriers

It is estimated that termites destroy more homes in Australia than all natural disasters combined. Even a building slab built to Australian Standards can sometimes crack, allowing termites to enter your home from beneath, undetected.

A Rentokil 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.

It offers long-lasting protection for your property without the need to continually top it up with additional chemicals.

Our termite protection systems are carried out in accordance to Australian Standard AS 3660.1 - 2000 Termite Management New Building Work and AS 3660.2 - 2000 Termite Management in and Around Existing Buildings.

  • What is a Physical Termite Barrier? - A physical termite barrier is a layer that is placed underneath the slab of your home or building.

    • It comes in wide sheets which are laid in the same way as a moisture layer before the slab is poured.
    • The sheets in a Rentokil barrier 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.

  • Who should use the Rentokil Physical Barrier? - There may be value in installing a Rentokil physical termite barrier if:
