Greenzone Termite Barrier
Greenzone is a great new termite barrier product on the Australian market that solves a few of the problems that some other physical barriers have: how to deal with cold joins and expansion joints.
Greenzone includes an expansion foam product that takes the place of Abelflex in expansion joints. It is a chemically-treated product that repels termites. It is very useful in cladding designs and extensions. It is non-intrusive to bricklayers (unlike sheeting products) and is installed immediately before concreting paths is done.
Benefits of Greenzone termite barrier to Builders
- Complete termite management system, including slab penetrations, slab perimeter, paths, in-fill slabs, isolated piers, and electrical conduit.
- Designed to last the economical life of the building.
- The expansion foam is non-obtrusive to bricklayers and cladding, unlike sheeting products.
- Greenzone also includes a sheeting product, required for brick veneer or cavity brick construction.
- Greenzone Sock Collars are non-obtrusive to concreters, as they don’t extend far out from the penetration.

Homeguard is among the most trusted pre-construction physical termite barriers on the market. It is developed by FMC. FMC is a leading chemistry company responsible for the development of many of our most trusted products used across the industry. It is for this reason that we have used Homeguard since starting this company.
We are accredited installers and have been working with this termite barrier product since 2008, and other similar products since the early 2000s.
