Why is homeguard unique?

HomeGuard provides a unique 3-way action to ensure protection of the structure.

  • Repelling termites away from the barrier
  • Killing termites upon contact
  • Acting as a physical vapour barrier and damp proofing membrane
  • HomeGuard – encompasses the combined strengths of both physical and chemical barriers to deliver triple action termite management. Unlike common physical termite barriers that are a passive system, HomeGuard is a pro-active termite management system, effectively killing termites on contact and repelling attacking termites.
  • HomeGuard – is user friendly and can be installed in wet weather, it will not delaminate or cut like some physical barriers and being non-scheduled and non-sensitizing is unlikely to cause installer or builder discomfort. Designed as a tough and flexible barrier, it will not delaminate, split or tear, is noncorrosive and is designed to last the life of the building.
  • HomeGuard – is the first and only single sheet physical termite moisture barrier containing an Australian registered termiticide.
  • HomeGuard – is environmentally friendly and incorporates the benefits of a chemical barrier with those of the physical barriers. Installed only to areas of the building that requires termite protection. HomeGuard will not leach or diffuse, effectively locking in the active ingredient to enhance its efficacy, longevity while remaining environmentally friendly and safe to the homeowner.
  • HomeGuard – suits a multitude of building construction situations.
  • HomeGuard – saves you money because HomeGuard TMB 0.2mm sheet complies with the Australian Standard AS2870, as a high impact, moisture barrier. HomeGuard DPC 0.5mm sheet meets the Australian Building Codes Board requirements for a perimeter cavity DPC, with slabs installed in accordance with AS 2870; HomeGuard collars meet the Australian Standards for the protection of service penetrations.
  • HomeGuard – is backed with a 25 year million dollar Limited and conditional Product Warranty when installed by a HomeGuard Accredited Installer, in accordance with the product label, and the installation guide.
  • HomeGuard – is non-evasive. Installed during the pre-construction phase of a home, the materials in HomeGuard are designed to last the life of the building. There is a need for, at least, one annual timber pest inspection (more often in High Termite pressure areas) to ensure that the barrier has not been tampered with or breached.

HomeGuard is a pro-active physical barrier system. It actively stops termites entering the structure via concealed access, by repelling them away from the site or by killing them if they come in contact the barrier. HomeGuard does more than a normal physical termite barrier.

HomeGuard® should only be installed by a HomeGuard Accredited Installer.
