ENNIS, TX – TERM® Barrier Systems by Polyguard Products Inc., a sustainable non chemical insect barrier system, is installed in The New American Home Build, which will be unveiled at the annual International Builders Show in Orlando, Fla. this week.
TERM Barriers are building envelope components which in addition to providing protection against moisture and energy leaks, provide barriers to block insects, including subterranean termites, from entering the home. TERM Barrier testing began at Texas A&M University in 1999, and has expanded to other major universities in the southeastern United States.
Products installed in the new home build and/or the renovated home included the TERM Sealant Barrier, TERM Full Bath Trap Barrier, TERM Flooring Underlayment Barrier, and TERM Particle Barrier. More details can be found online at http://www.polyguardproducts.com/term/architects/tnah/.
The New American Home is a real-world laboratory demonstrating concepts, builder’s best practices, energy efficiency, NAHB green building, building materials designs and construction techniques that can be replicated – in whole or in part – in housing built in any place and in any price range. This year’s home, designed by Phil Kean Design Group, was completed in about 10 months, and normally would take anywhere between 18 and 24 months to complete.
