A cost-effective, environmentally favorable termite protection product that helps builders reduce their liability from termite damage litigation is being featured at PCBC 2005 by Syngenta Professional Products.
IMPASSE Termite Blocker is a highly effective, long-term, pre-construction solution that stops termites at some of the most common entry points into the home. Builders visiting the IMPASSE Termite Blocker booth will get a chance to win one of two Vermont Castings Marvel VCS6005 premium grills. The grills feature a 750 square inch cooking area, 290 square inch warming rack, six burners, an infrared rotisserie burner, rotisserie kit, two side burners and a large warming drawer. The grill promotion is open only to registered attendees at PCBC. Two winners will be chosen at random on a raffle basis at the conclusion of the trade show on June 3rd. The winners do not need to be present at the time of the drawing.
Ideal for residential construction, IMPASSE Termite Blocker protects utility penetrations and bath trap areas from termite invasion. Termites only need 1/32nd of an inch to invade a house and often use gaps along pipes in the slab foundation as veritable highways into a home. IMPASSE Termite Blocker is the only product that specifically targets these vulnerable points, sealing long-term protection right into the foundation. In recent years, termite damage litigation has increased substantially.
With IMPASSE Termite Blocker, builders can help reduce their liability by proactively protecting the areas where the damage often starts, ensuring defense at these critical junctures.
“IMPASSE Termite Blocker has revolutionized the way homes across the United States are protected from termite damage,” said Karen Westcott, marketing manager, Syngenta. “Building termite protection into the home is essential, especially in areas where termites are prevalent.”
IMPASSE Termite Blocker is made from a durable polymer with a specially formulated termiticide “locked in” between outer layers, which minimizes exposure to handlers and homebuyers while maintaining product effectiveness in the long-term. Installed by an authorized pest management professional prior to the pouring of a home’s concrete slab, each IMPASSE Termite Blocker can be installed and tightly sealed in about one minute, so there is little interruption to the construction process.
Once the concrete is poured, IMPASSE Termite Blockers become built in, providing an unprecedented level of termite protection.
IMPASSE Termite Blockers are backed by a five-year re-treat and damage repair warranty and are designed to complement existing termite pre-construction treatments such as liquid termiticides and baits.
