FMC Australasia keeps an open mind for ways to improve and offer innovative, simplified termite management solutions. A result of recent feedback has led to FMC producing ready-to-use, lightweight, heat-sealed corners designed to make Perimeter Cavity installations easier and quicker. ‘The fact that HomeGuard is a proactive termite management system that can be heat-sealed is a real breakthrough,’ says FMC’s Queensland area manager, Chris Hill. ‘Traditionally the corner joints have been a weak point, but because the new HomeGuard corners are heat-sealed, they provide maximum strength and ensure the integrity of the system is maintained. With HomeGuard corners, a continuous barrier system can be installed without tapes or glues on even the most complex structure.’ HomeGuard ready-to-use corners are now available in packs of 25, made in either HomeGuard Blue sheets or HomeGuard DPC material.
