Now offering Hebel aerated concrete
We are now pleased to offer Hebel aerated concrete as an alternative to traditional bricks and render construction for clients wanting a rendered façade finish on their homes.
CSR Hebel PowerPanel XL aerated concrete will provide a faster option for clients looking to build in today’s building environment which is currently experiencing extreme labour shortages. To paint a picture, one standard panel of Hebel can be installed in the same amount of time it takes to lay the equivalent of 75 bricks.
Some of the other advantages of Hebel aerated concrete include:
Strong and solid
Made from Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC), each panel contains steel reinforcement with an anti-corrosion layer for maximum strength and durability.
Independent testing shows that overall, Hebel has a 30% lower environmental impact than concrete or brick veneer. Hebel panels use 60% less embodied energy and produce 55% less greenhouse emissions compared to concrete or brick veneer, making it a more sustainable, environmentally friendly choice of building material.
Hebel panels have superior insulation qualities compared to other masonry products. Tests have shown that a house built with Hebel PowerPanelXL performs better than brick veneer in terms of both heating and cooling, saving on energy costs and improving energy star ratings.
Quality and speed
Building with Hebel can mean faster construction times without sacrificing on quality. One standard Hebel panel is the equivalent of 75 traditional bricks, which means a 150m² home can go up as quickly as within 3 days when installed by experienced Hebel installers.
Building your home in Hebel can reduce outside noise, and when used for floors, can reduce sound transference between levels as well.
Hebel is a non-combustible material, renowned for its fire resistant properties. Hebel systems have been tested by the CSIRO and are proven to achieve Fire Resistance Levels (FRLs) of 60 minutes through to 240 minutes. Plus they meet or exceed the requirements for all six Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) categories making it an ideal choice in bushfire zones.
CSR Hebel is the only manufacturer of AAC in Australia. With over 25 years of experience in developing, testing and producing AAC you can be assured you’re getting high quality products and systems and unmatched technical expertise with Hebel.
Backed by CSR and Australian made, the Hebel brand has been established for over 100 years. We are very excited to be using Hebel on our new display home that we are currently constructing at Lot 3 Waters Street, Willawong.
