Convenience for builders: It's simple, yet ingenious design is uniquely suited to effective and efficient installation on a building site with minimum disruption and organisation by the head building contractor. The average perimeter installation only takes a few hours and becomes an integral part of the building process.
Flexibility of application: KORDON Termite Barrier is sufficiently flexible to meet even the most difficult and complicated situations, such as, buildings with multiple penetrations or step downs. Kordon can be molded around unusual shapes and can quickly be cut and joined to form a continuous barrier.
Made Tough for Building Site Conditions: KORDON Termite Barrier is a robust product. It takes a sharp knife to cut Kordon, a blunt object has little chance of penetrating the product. If a hole is made accidentally, it can be easily repaired.

Long Term Warranty: When correctly installed by a Bayer accredited installer, the KORDON Termite Barrier system provides a 10 year warranty backed by Bayer Environmental Science.
For the Life of the Building: Based on on-going research, trial results indicate KORDON Termite Barrier should provide termite protection for more than 50 years.
