Laserframe® Terminator Blue

Laserframe Terminator Blue is structural pine framing treated to hazard level H2-F for protection against termite attack and damage when used in applications south of the Tropic Of Capricorn. Repelling termites so that they are unlikely to use the frame and truss as a ‘highway’ to reach other parts of the building, Laserframe Terminator Blue is also resistant to European House Borer.

Coloured using a blue dye for ease of identification, lengths are also branded by way of an end tag or an inkjet stamp along the face or edge of the board.

Laserframe Terminator Blue is treated with DeterMite® (bifenthrin - synthetic pyrethroids), an organic insecticide used in common household applications such as head lice shampoos, citronella garden torches and fly spray. When used in framing Terminator Blue is effectively odourless without volatile fumes and is safe for humans and mammals.

Laserframe treatments do not affect material properties of the timber, allowing upgrade to Laserframe Terminator without the cost and hassle of re-submitting plans. Unlike some termite management systems, Laserframe Terminator doesn’t require ongoing application of top up chemicals or completion of an annual inspection to maintain warranty. Additionally, the upfront cost of Laserframe Terminator is only a fraction of the price home owners are likely to pay for rectification work if termite attack occurs.

Reseal Requirements

The recommendation of AS 1604.1 for all treated products in the hazard classes including H2 and H2-F is that good building practice is to reseal with a suitable timber preservative, such as Protim Solignum XJ Clear Timber Protective or Tanalised Enseal Clear. To meet the conditions of the chemical guarantee, minimum reseal requirements apply as follows:

Resealing Required

Laserframe Terminator Blue

Planed Studs


Notches or rebates


Damaged timber members


Rip sawn or re-dressed


Cuts for speed bracing




Enclosed cut end


Exposed cut end


Bore holes


Service holes


*Resealing not required if tightly joined to treated timber which has been treated to the same or a higher Hazard Class and if there is no exposed untreated timber.

Fixings & Fasteners

Laserframe Terminator Blue treatments are non-corrosive and do not affect nail or plate holding, making normal bright steel nails and fixing plates suitable in application. While the termite treatment should not affect adhesives, including plasterboard adhesives, we recommend checking with plasterboard and adhesive suppliers regarding their specific recommendations.


Gloves, dust masks and glasses should be worn at all times when working with timber.  Please refer to above Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for full details.  Laserframe Teminator Blue can be handled with the same safety precautions as untreated timber

Waste Disposal

Off-cuts can be disposed of as normal landfill waste. Do not burn treated timbers.  Please refer to above Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for full details.
