1.0 Introduction

CSR Panel Systems is a division of CSR Building Products Limited, one of Australia’s leading building products companies.

CSR Panel Systems manufactures Hebel Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC). The AAC in Hebel products is manufactured from sand, lime and cement to which a gas-forming agent is added. The liberated gas expands the mixture, forming extremely small, finely dispersed air pockets, resulting in lightweight aerated concrete.

CSR Panel Systems has manufactured Hebel products that have won wide acceptance as innovative and environmentally preferable building materials. This is due to their lightweight nature, excellent thermal, fire and acoustic properties and design versatility. These inherent properties of Hebel products help achieve quick and cost efficient construction practices as well as providing for comfortable operating environments inside the buildings all year round.

Build a premium home with Hebel PowerBlock 

Hebel PowerBlocks are large AAC Blocks with a standard face dimension of 600mm x 200mm, laid in much the same way as bricks but using Hebel Adhesive to form a monolithic structure. Typically, external walls use a single skin of 250mm thick blocks while internal, non-loadbearing walls use 100mm thick blocks. Hebel’s tight manufacturing tolerances deliver beautifully flat, true surfaces that are easily rendered and painted.

Walls built with Hebel PowerBlock are strong and durable, providing the security of solid masonry coupled with exceptional thermal and acoustic insulation properties. With over three times the thermal resistance of double brick, Hebel PowerBlocks exceed the Building Code of Australia (BCA) for energy efficiency regulations for zones 1,2, 3 and 5 without the need for additional bulk insulation.

Hebel PowerBlocks are non combustible and can achieve an Fire Resistance Level (FRL) of up to 240/240/240.

For detached houses, this is well above the requirements for building right up to the boundary line and making Hebel an ideal choice for bushfire prone areas.

Compared to traditional double brick construction, Hebel PowerBlock walls can be laid much faster, saving building time and costs. Building with Hebel Blocks may create more internal floor area for the same building dimensions.

Hebel Lintels can be used over windows, doors and garage door openings. Hebel also supplies sill blocks for under windows to complement the overall look of your home.

2.0 Benefits

The many benefits of using Hebel PowerBlocks include:

Solid and strong:

Hebel PowerBlocks are made from Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC), a strong, solid masonry building material with the advantage of being 25% the weight of conventional concrete.

Acoustic Performance:

Significantly reduced sound transmission from room-to-room.

Thermal Resistance:

Unique thermal properties result in a more stable inside temperature, reducing the energy
required to heat and cool your home, thereby reducing energy bills.

Environmentally friendly:

73% less embodied energy and 61% less greenhouse gas emissions than comparative masonry products*.

*Source: LCA Report GECA 2006

Fire Protection:

Non-combustible blocks with frameless construction deliver superior fire resistance. Hebel PowerBlock systems also allow you to build right up to your boundary line.

Pest resistance:

Not a food source for termites or vermin and no cavity construction eliminates the chance of harbouring pests.

Design Freedom:

Hebel PowerBlock Wall Systems provide absolute freedom to design and build your ultimate dream home – without compromise.

Technical Support:

Competent technical support through Hebel distributors.

Energy Efficiency

The unique combination of thermal resistance and thermal mass make building with Hebel a smart choice for meeting Australia’s stringent building regulations.

The thermal performance of a building depends on a number of factors such as orientation and size and aspect of windows. The R-Value of walls and floors can significantly affect the energy-rating outcome of dwellings. A 250mm Hebel PowerBlock has 3 times the R-Value of a cavity brick wall (BCA Vol. 2 Figure 3.12.1.3). The use of Hebel in walls and floors will provide increased thermal performance that can allow more flexibility with other design aspects of a building.

The thermal efficiency of Hebel systems will also reduce the reliance on heating and cooling appliances. The combined effects of running a heater less in winter and fans or air conditioning less in summer can have a big impact on energy costs and the environment.

Single Skin Construction

The AAC masonry constructed from Hebel PowerBlock products is called “Plain Masonry” and the blocks are masonry units referred to as a “Solid Unit”. The type of solid unit is “Autoclaved aerated concrete masonry unit” complying with AS/NZS 4455 – Masonry Units and Segment Pavers.

The larger face dimension and being a single skin, Hebel PowerBlock walls are erected quickly when compared to double brick construction.
