INSTALLING THE KOATMAILLE TERMITE BARRIER
KOATMAILLE is a type 316L durable stainless steel mesh. The holes in the mesh are smaller than a worker termite’s head, which makes the mesh impenetrable to termites. A strongly adhesive glue made from a termite-resistant formula seals the mesh securely to concrete and masonry.
DIRECTIONS FOR INSTALLATION
Clean gravel and rough patches from the concrete slab. They interfere with the proper installation of the mesh.
Stretch the KOATMAILLE mesh along the perimeter of the slab and nail it down
Make sure 3 mm of the mesh laps over the edge of the slab. You might have to cut the mesh to fit some areas.
Mix ½ a bucket (10 kg) of glue with 3 litres of water.
Wet the surface of the mesh.
Spread the glue over the mesh using a plastering spatula.
KOATMAILLE protection for ducts and steel bars is explained in our reference manual or can be acquired via a training programme.
