The hebel story began over 45 years ago in West Germany, when a building contractor named Josef Hebel decided to develop a more cost effective building system.
Hebel AAC (autoclaved aerated concrete) is a lightweight concrete that is formed into blocks and panels for a wide range of both loadbearing and non-loadbearing construction applications.
Hebel ® products are used in the residential and commercial construction industry for:
Hebel PowerPanelXL is now a more efficient way to build - The Hebel PowerPanelXL External Wall System, now 20% lighter.
Hebel PowerPanelXL has been designed 20% lighter without compromising the structural integrity of the panel (refer to technical information).
The Hebel PowerPanelXL External Wall System for Houses & Low Rise Multi-Residential applications has been designed for homes built using either timber or steel framing including home extensions or re-cladding of existing homes. The system consists of 75mm thick, steel-reinforced Hebel PowerPanelXL panels, fixed vertically to horizontal battens attached to the load-bearing frame.
For quick, clean construction, Hebel PowerPanelXL panels can be ordered in the stock lengths of 2400mm, 2700mm and 3000mm and in widths of 450mm and 600mm. The 600mm wide PowerPanelXL panels are also available in the additional lengths of 1200mm, 1800mm, and 2550mm (refer to technical information tables for specific details).
The remarkably good insulation properties of Hebel mean a pleasant interior environment is achieved while reducing the reliance on heating and cooling appliances, thereby saving energy and money.
Excellent Acoustic Performance
The acoustic properties of Hebel are excellent, providing an effective sound barrier.
Hebel is totally inorganic and non-combustible - especially suited to fire-rated applications
Hebel products do not contain any toxic gas substances and will not harbour or encourage vermin.
Although solid masonry, Hebel is only 25% of the weight of traditional concrete making handling easier and faster.
When installed according to specifications, Hebel products are not affected by harsh climatic conditions and will not degrade under normal atmospheric conditions.
Rapid On-site Assembly
The product's light weight and easy workability means that it is very quick to install on site.
Hebel blocks and panels can be sawn, drilled, nailed and machined using off-the-shelf tools.
The patented manufacturing process ensures that Hebel blocks and panels are always produced to size as they leave the factory meaning less on-site trimming and reduced usage of mortar and finishing materials.
Hebel systems can be used for all applications in residential, commercial and civil applications including walls, floors, roofs, balconies and decks in both load bearing and non-load bearing construction.
