Main Advantages of Using PowerPanel XL for Your External Cladding Systems

16 December 2021

The PowerPanel XL external wall system consists of 75mm thick, steel-reinforced AAC panels, fixed vertically to Hebel’s patented perforated Top Hat sections – providing a faster way of constructing external facades for residential builds.

Compared to traditional masonry, the installation of the PowerPanelXL system is 60% faster and provides outstanding acoustic and thermal insulation performance. It is also non-combustible, making it the perfect choice in bushfire zones.

External Cladding Systems

Being durable and solid, each PowerPanelXL panel also contains steel reinforcement for added strength with an anti-corrosion layer on the steel for maximum durability. Hebel’s external wall systems are durable, solid and look fantastic too.

Our new Designer Range offers two new products, PowerProfile and PowerPattern, so you can get the look you want for your home. Hebel PowerProfile external wall system is a simple way to accessorise your Hebel facade to replicate the look of traditional standing seam, metal cladding systems. Two profiles in three colours are available to customise your home design.

Hebel PowerPattern provides a contemporary option for facades with routed vertical lines into the face of the panel. It also offers flexibility to elevate the look of your facade. The panels in Hebel’s PowerPanelXL external wall system contain steel reinforcement with an anti-corrosion protection layer for added strength and durability. Fixed to steel or timber frames the system is robust and is non-combustible, making it low-risk and ideal for bushfire prone areas. Measuring 75mm thick, the panels perform well thermally, keeping your house cooler in summer and warmer in winter, without relying on costly heating and cooling appliances.

Hebel PowerPanel50 used for external walls is a great addition to Hebel’s suite of external wall systems. It is available in several lengths for fast and easy installation without compromising on quality. The Hebel PowerPanel50 is a versatile product that can be used for external and internal walls. Hebel’s PowerBlock+ system is the ideal alternative to double brick with over one and a half times the thermal resistance of double brick, giving you a solid, masonry home that’s comfortable to live in.

Both systems offer great acoustic performance, reducing noise transmission from external sources such as traffic, making your home a more quiet one. They have outstanding thermal properties. Meaning your house is more comfortable, and there is less reliance on heating and cooling. Fast to install without compromising quality, Hebel’s external wall systems deliver a premium system available in a range of finishes, colours and patterns.

It’s fast to install and easy to achieve National Construction Code compliance for weather tightness and thermal, fire and acoustic performance requirements. And when installed using the patented Hebel Hoist, panels can be installed safely and with maximised efficiency.
