GREENZONE® TERMITE BARRIER (GTB)

Adhesive Back

The easy to use adhesive back makes the installation of GREENZONE® quick and simple (find out more below)

Termiticide

GREENZONE® patented technology, acts as a barrier to termites and other pests (find out more below).

Expansion Joint Foam

GREENZONE® can be used in a number of different applications in the control of expansion and contraction of concrete elements (find out more below)

GREENZONE® is a polyethylene expansion gap flexible foam containing Bifenthrin to act as a barrier to termites, black ant and cockroaches. Bifenthrin is a pyrethroid insecticide and termiticide, a 4th generation pyrethroid, which is virtually insoluble in water (with a solubility of only 0.1 mg/l) and the longest residual termiticide currently registered on the market. Bifenthrin is a product used worldwide and is common in pesticides and termiticides – safety data is readily available (see SDS/MSDS for further information)

The manufacture of the GREENZONE® product uses an extrusion process. The process combines bifenthrin with a closed cell, cross-linked polyethylene material. As a result of the extrusion process, once the GREENZONE® product has dried it is impossible for the bifenthrin to leach out or degrade.

DESCRIPTION

GREENZONE® Termite Barrier (GTB) is an innovative, patented, closed cell, cross-linked, 100% polyethylene foam expansion joint and space filler strip containing Bifenthrin to act as a barrier against termites, black ant and cockroaches.

Residential Uses Commercial Uses

GREENZONE® - THE SOLUTION

GREENZONE® is an insect and termite barrier technology which integrates a compressible foam substrate with bifenthrin (see picture below) creating significant savings in labour and materials to install a combined termite repellent and compressible foam layer.  The core innovation is the integration of a termite repellent into expansion joint foam which can be applied to all elements of construction that require a termite barrier in order to comply with Australian Standard AS3660 – 2000, Termite Management, Parts 1 & 3.

1) PENETRATION (PIPE) WRAP APPLICATION

GREENZONE® is used as an expansion foam around pipe penetration in concrete slab construction. By using GREENZONE® in this manner, the need to install a secondary termite collar barrier is removed. As GREENZONE® provides both termite protection and addresses the expansion/contraction of concrete around penetrations in one-step.

2) CONTROL JOINT APPLICATION

GREENZONE® is used as an expansion foam in control joints required in concrete slab construction. By using GREENZONE® in this manner, the need to install a secondary termite fabric barrier is removed. As GREENZONE® provides both termite protection and addresses the expansion/contraction of concrete slabs in one-step. See residential uses | See commercial uses

3) CONCRETE PANEL (TILT-PANEL) APPLICATION

GREENZONE® is used as an expansion foam in control joints required where concrete paving abuts concrete wall panels (internally and external) as shown. By using GREENZONE® in this manner, the need to install a secondary termite fabric barrier is removed. As GREENZONE® provides both termite protection and addresses the expansion/contraction of concrete paving in one-step. See residential uses | See commercial uses

4) BRICK WALL / CONCRETE PAVING JUNCTION APPLICATION

GREENZONE® is used as an expansion foam in control joints required where concrete paving abuts exterior brick wall as shown. By using GREENZONE® in this manner, the need to install a secondary termite fabric barrier is removed. As GREENZONE® provides both termite protection and addresses the expansion/contraction of concrete paving in one-step. See residential uses | See commercial uses

5) CONCRETE STUMP AND TIMBER SUB-STRUCTURE APPLICATION

GREENZONE® is used as a termite separation barrier between the concrete stump and timber sub-structure as shown – a common entry point for termites. See residential uses | See commercial uses

WHY USE GREENZONE®?

GREENZONE® is an insect and termite barrier technology which integrates a compressible foam substrate with a termiticide creating significant savings in labour and materials to install a combined termite repellent and compressible foam layer.

GREENZONE® complies with Australian Standard AS3660 – 2000 Termite Management, Parts 1 & 3.

GREENZONE® termite barrier meets the legislative requirements of local government across Victoria and in other states of Australia other than Tasmania.

In termite
regions, it is a blanket pre-requisite to have a termite barrier installed in order to achieve a Certificate of Occupancy. In the Northern Territory the Department of Lands Planning and the Environment provide that builders must, as a minimum, comply with the termite management requirements set out in the Building Code of Australia (BCA).

In the medium to longer term, adopting a strategy of termite exclusion, as opposed to termite treatment, has the following additional benefits:

> Reduces the use of chemicals in the environment;
> Reduces the cost of building management by removing the need for ongoing pest management;
> Improves environmental health outcomes by preventing termite infestation in the first instance.

GREENZONE® is suitable for residential, commercial and industrial applications.

Expansion joint foam being a necessity in any form of concrete construction as it allows slabs to expand and contract without cracking and protects other building elements such as plumbing during the slab pour process.

Increasing regulatory interest in environmentally efficient products that reduce resource use and prevent pest infestation.
INSTALLATION

The installation of GREENZONE® Termite Barrier is made easy due to the sticky back (self-adhesive) backing. This product will stick to most surfaces, e.g. concrete, brick, timber, AAC, metal and PVC.

Installation of GREENZONE® around Penetrations in Concrete Slabs

GREENZONE® (shown in green) is a one-step process:
  1. it is applied prior to the concreter starting work,
  2. it is installed by one trades person only,
  3. it meets both the termite barrier requirements and management of expansion and contraction in concrete in one application,
  4. it does not require the removal and reattachment of any materials,
  5. it removes the scheduling constraints of the installer.
