Maximise Steel Durability with Hebel PowerPanel Wall Solutions from BuildCor

26 October 2021

Hebel is an Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) lightweight building material made from sand, cement, recycled material, lime, gypsum and other aerating agents that are used to form blocks and panels for walls, facades and floors. It is widely used in Europe, New Zealand and Australia for various purposes. Due to its wide range of uses, Hebel is presumed to be an ideal cladding material. Below are how Hebel cladding delivers a warmer and safer home.

Engineered to deliver high performing wall solutions for apartments and commercial and industrial buildings. Hebel PowerPanel contains steel reinforcement for added strength with an anti-corrosion layer on the steel for maximum durability. Installing PowerPanel systems for both internal walls and external facades is quick and cost-effective when compared to traditional masonry construction. PowerPanel can be made-to-length or made-to-order, meaning less wastage, fewer waste bins and fewer crane movements – leading to further cost savings. PowerPanel systems are a sustainable and environmentally friendly choice while offering an excellent fire rating and high acoustic performance.

Hebel PowerPanel Wall Solutions Offers More Thermal Insulation for a Warmer Home

Hebel cladding is said to provide more thermal insulation than its counterparts. Hebel AAC offers up to 25 per cent more heat insulation than ventilated AAC and 31 per cent more insulation than brick veneer. Thus, it goes to show that surfaces with Hebel cladding can perform well thermally. It can help you keep the home cool during the summer season while maintaining a warm and cosy temperature during winter. It can help you be comfortable within the confines of your house regardless of the seasons and weather conditions. Consequently, you will rely less on temperature-controlling machines such as heating and cooling systems, further reducing your energy consumption and expenses.

Hebel PowerPanel Wall Solutions is Durable and Fire-Resistant to Ensure Safety

Despite its non-structural nature, the use of Hebel for cladding is guaranteed to promote a safer environment for your home. Their steel reinforcements installed for additional strength acts as an anti-corrosion layer on the steel to ensure its durability. In comparison, a standard Hebel panel constitutes the strength of 75 traditional bricks. Thus, it ensures the use of a good quality concrete material for a safer home.

If you are residing in an area with a high bush fire danger zone, then Hebel cladding is essential for your construction needs. Hebel cladding has excellent fire-resistant properties as tested by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). It achieved Fire Resistance Levels (FRLs) of 60 minutes through to 240 minutes. Hebel cladding also met and exceeded the requirements for all six Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) categories. It is a non-combustible building material.

It is important to use Hebel cladding in ensuring your comfort and safety in your own home. And which better store to avail of CSR Hebel materials than that of BuildCor Building Solutions. We supply and install CSR Hebel that guarantees quality workmanship that is second to none.
