Benefits of Altis Reticulation System

We have gone to some trouble to source what we believe is one of the most flexible and adaptable reticulation systems available. This system is easy to install, attracts low installation costs and is ideally suited for upgrading post construction termite management programs as well as pre construction and renovation termite work. The Altis reticulation system, which is an Australian invention, has been in hiding since 1992. It was the first Reticulation System approved by the NRA and the first Reticulation System to be included on a chemical label. Altis has been one of the first reticulation systems to obtain Codemark approval.

Benefits of the Reticulated Termite Rechargeable System Over Traditional Liquid Termiticide Barriers

These systems are based on providing a contained system of termite control within the footprint of the house. In addition, as new termite control agents are developed which are even more acceptable in the environment, reticulation systems are capable of delivering these new products throughout the life of the home.

Approved reticulation systems offer the capability for accurate control of termite control agents into the underslab and perimeter of a new home.

Altis is constantly being tested and upgraded.

The most recent landmark is CodeMark certificate of Conformity - the certification covers the following BCA (Building Codes of Australia) clauses:

1. Volume One: BP1.1 and BP1.2 (limited only to actions by subterranean termites)
2. Volume Two: P2.1 (limited only to actions by subterranean termites)
3. State Additions: Volume Two: QLD P2.1.1 (limited only to actions by subterranean termites)

The Altis System Unique Points Of Difference

Many systems are on the markets which have a simple hole drilled into the pipes, but Altis has scientifically designed and regulated delivery points (emitters) which ensure the correct amount of chemical is delivered to all areas being treated.  Termites only require a hairs breadth of untreated soil to make their attack.

Have Emitters that ensure grit from soil will not enter, or termites do not make their entrance into the pipe through simple holes. Recent tests using a non-repellent termiticide show that over a 50 metre distance there is complete and even distribution over the entire length of the system.  No other system can match these results.

To further ensure even spread a perforated plastic sheet of builders membrane is employed so that there are two methods that contribute to distribution. Because the Altis pipe is a flat section pipe there is no impression on concrete slabs which can weaken the slab.

The Altis pipe cannot crush as it does not start life as a round pipe.

Altis has a favourable engineer's report confirming that Altis operates effectively in CLAY even if clay subsidence occurs. Should there be any question of the soils ability to absorb chemical or as extra precaution where circumstances require, foaming techniques can be applied.

The Altis system is simple to install which is important in the elimination of onsite mistakes.

Altis has recently trademarked Purple in Australia when used in an Anti-Termite irrigation or reticulation system due to association of the colour with Altis. This is appropriate because the colour when used in normal irrigation shows water that is not drinkable, which is the same in our industry.

The purple colour identifies the Altis pipe as high density, flexible, resistant to solvents used in Termiticide, manufactured in the unique flat section that fills out under pressure, with emitters which evenly disperse emulsion under low pressure.

NOTE: All materials have been tested to the world wide recognized American Standard testing system for resistance to solvents and long life of 50 years plus under soil.

Materials are largely Australian made pipes to our own formula.

And above all we are a long established company with stable management and hundreds of thousands of successful installations since 1995.

Australian conditions range climatically from snow in the South to intense tropical conditions in the North and include exposure to 300 varieties of termites, 15 of which can cause damage which is economically significant.

Why Is Reticulation The Best Termite Management System?

Builders And Concretors Advantage

And because the Altis pipe is a flat section pipe there is no impression on concrete slabs which can weaken the slab.

The System's Maths

Checking the systems performance is easy, because of the simple "Mathematics" of the system.

Are you over applying costly Chemical?
Check the label rate and use the mathematics' of the Altis System to deliver the correct rate and get the true benefits of non-repellent termiticide. Too much kills too quickly and will deter termites from entering the treated zone. The costs and environmental concerns of over applying termiticide are overcome.

Application Rates


The revolutionary Altis system is an environmentally friendly and safe way to apply chemicals beneath your building. Chemicals are applied following the pouring and curing of the slab.

Advantages Include:

Quality Assurance

Altis has achieved the highest standards ratings available in Australia - standards that are highly regarded worldwide - proof of our commitment to quality. We continually engage in testing, research and development in order to maintain and improve our standards and product.

For products to be CodeMark certified they must be functional, reliable, practical and economically sound according to the designs, performance and installation are independently reviewed and evaluated, with additional testing and factory and construction site audits. CodeMark certification is administered by the Australian Building Codes Board and is an internationally accepted process that complies with the Building Code of Australia to offer superior home protection.
