concrete surface, prepare and clean to receive the Termimesh system.
7.
INSTALLATION
a)
All installations are to be executed by the system’s Accredited Installers who have
undergone extensive training in both how to install the system as well as
understanding the habits of termites and are trained in the design, placement and
installation of the non-chemical, no poison, stainless steel mesh termite control system.
b)
The non-chemical, no poison, stainless steel mesh termite control system shall be
installed in accordance with the Approved Consultant’s Shop Drawings as well as with
the system’s manufacturer’s published installation instructions and are to be protected
by plastering, screed or other finishes.
c)
All Termimesh installation shall be dutifully recorded with installation photographs to be
read in conjunction with the Approved Consultant’s shop drawings to ensure
completeness.
d)
The System will keep out termites if it is complete and not damaged. If any of the
trades on the site damages or moves the mesh, clamps or parging mix, then a termite
entry point could occur. The Site Supervisor should immediately contact the installer if
there is damage to the System or if modifications to the design of the project are
made. If any of the trades are uncertain if their work could damage any part of the
barrier, then they should contact the Installer.
