All homes now built in bushfire zones must comply with Australian Standard AS3959-2009, designed to improve the resistance of buildings to bushfire attack from burning embers, radiant heat and combinations of the three attack forms. All Hebel products including Hebel PowerFloor+ for suspended floors, Hebel PowerPanel for external wall systems and the Hebel PowerBlock+ home building method have exceptional fire properties and meet or exceed the requirements for all six Bushfire Attack Levels (BAL).
Hebel AAC, which is Autoclaved Aerated Concrete, is a solid masonry product that is versatile enough to be used for external and internal walls, decks and fencing. Hebel products are non-combustible and deliver the right balance between thermal insulation and mass; and will not explode, even under extreme heat.
Building with Hebel not only provides homeowners and home-renovators with the security that their home is fire-resistant, but also provides an extremely solid construction with sharp architectural aesthetics and the flexibility to create a range of innovative designs, both externally and internally. Hebel offers high acoustic absorbing properties, significantly reducing sound transmission between rooms and noise penetration from external sources. With enhanced insulation performance three times that of brick, the thermal efficiency of Hebel ensures comfort throughout the year, reducing the reliance on heating and cooling appliances, creating a more comfortable and energy efficient home.
There are also financial benefits to consider when choosing Hebel. Hebel is faster to construct and generally requires significantly less labour compared to traditional construction techniques and products. Building with Hebel also means less mess on-site and less clean-up at completion of construction, all of which help to reduce the total cost of the build.
The Hebel PowerPanel XL system is a high performance masonry panel system which provides solid, secure, steel-reinforced walls providing strong acoustic values for added privacy and sound insulation. With up to three times the insulation R-value of a traditional 110mm house brick, the combination of thermal resistance and thermal mass assists in reducing energy costs.
