Hebel Systems

External Walls

Hebel’s external wall systems are strong and solid, provide superior thermal insulation, are fast to install and look fantastic too.

The PowerPanelXL system uses a 75mm panel delivering around 25% better thermal insulation than a vented AAC system – and 31% better than brick veneer.

The PowerPanel50 system provides approximately 12% better thermal insulation than a vented AAC system – and 18% better than brick veneer.

Panels are fixed to steel or timber frames without the need or cost of an additional thermal break. The corrosion-protected steel reinforced Hebel AAC panels are extremely robust and non-combustible, making them ideal for bushfire prone areas.

Hebel’s PowerBlock+ system is the ideal alternative to concrete block construction offering significant increases in thermal performance, providing an extremely solid masonry home that’s comfortable to live in.

All three systems offer great acoustic performance, reducing noise transmission from external sources such as traffic, for a quieter home. The superior thermal properties mean your house is more comfortable to live in and there is less reliance on heating and cooling. 

Hebel external wall systems give you a solid finish that can be rendered in a wide range of colours, with the design flexibility to achieve the look and street appeal you want.

Intertenancy Walls

Hebel’s PowerPanelXL Intertenancy wall system is compliant with the performance requirements of the NZ Building Code (NZBC) for low rise multi-residential frame construction.  

Consisting of a non-load bearing PowerPanelXL partition, installed vertically and secured between the structural load-bearing steel or timber framing, the PowerPanelXL intertenancy wall system is not affected by wet weather during installation and can be made to length in the factory, resulting in efficient installation and construction.

The Intertenancy wall system uses an aluminum bracket to provide discontinuous construction for superior acoustic separation. This provides the ability to have back to back services or joinery between tenancies.

Hebel Systems


Hebel’s PowerFloor system offers exceptional benefits for homeowners, delivering the solid feel of a concrete floor at a lower cost.

The Hebel PowerFloor system consists of 75mm panels containing steel reinforcement with an anti-corrosion protection layer, to ensure maximum strength and durability. These panels are installed over steel or timber joists to provide an outstanding flooring solution for suspended ground floors or mid-floors with excellent thermal and acoustic performance. Once finished, the Hebel PowerFloor system provides a solid base for just about any floor covering, without the ‘squeak and bounce’ associated with particleboard, and without the price tag of concrete floors

Hebel Systems


Hebel PowerFence provides an innovative, solid fencing system that’s attractive, versatile and easy to install – adding the perfect touch to your home.

Ideal for renovators, because of the lightweight panels and simple construction method, PowerFence uses standard 2400 or 1800 x 600 x 75mm panels, steel brackets and steel posts which can be easily and quickly erected without the need for excavation or strip footing.

Perfect for boundary fencing and as an alternative to standard masonry for front fences.

Q. How does Hebel perform when it comes to keeping my house warm in winter and cool in summer?

Hebel panels have superior insulation qualities compared to other masonry products, this means that it keeps your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer with less of a reliance on heaters and air-conditioning and saving you in energy costs.

Q. Is Hebel as strong as brick?

Hebel panels contain anti-corrosion steel reinforcement, making them strong, solid and a reliable choice for building your home. Tests have shown that Hebel and traditional brick have a similar impact resistance.

Q. I’ve heard Hebel cracks - is that true?

Hebel is a strong, solid building product, with a similar impact resistance to traditional brick. To prevent or minimise cracking, ensure that you use an recommended acrylic render system, applied by an experienced renderer.

Q. How long has Hebel been around for?

Hebel is a strong building product made from autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC). AAC was developed in Scandinavia over 70 years ago and is now used widely across the world.

CSR Hebel is Australia’s only manufacturer of AAC with over 25 years of experience in designing and developing AAC systems for Australian buildings.

Q. Is Hebel the same as Polystyrene cladding?

No, Hebel is a building product made from autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) and contains steel mesh, coated with an anti-corrosion protection layer for maximum strength and durability. Hebel boasts great environmental benefits, is a non-combustible product and has high fire resistance, not to mention it reduces noise and is great for keeping your house warm in winter and cool in summer.

Q. I’ve heard it’s quicker to build in Hebel than other masonry products, is that true?

Installing one Hebel panel is the equivalent to laying 75 bricks, which means a 150m2 home can be go up as quickly as 3 days when installed by experienced Hebel installers. Building with Hebel means faster construction without sacrificing on quality.

Q. Why would I use Hebel for my floors?

Hebel PowerFloor is a great choice of flooring solution with it’s high-performing acoustic and thermal benefits. This means less noise between floors and none of the squeak or bounce associated with particleboard flooring. Hebel PowerFloor can be easily installed by onsite tradesman such as carpenters and sits well beneath any floor covering of your choice such as tiles, carpets or strip timber flooring.

Q. How do I care for the external surface of my Hebel home?

Hebel walls should be washed down as a minimum once a year with clean water. This process removes any dirt or other build-up that has gathered on the coating.

Q. I’ve built my house in Hebel – can I fix items like external lights or speakers to it?

We are often asked about fixings! Holes can be drilled in Hebel walls using a masonry drill bit fitted to a standard (not rotary hammer) drill. Once the penetration has been filled with the required cables or the like, the gap around the penetration should be filled with a reputable flexible sealant such as Sikaflex polyurethane sealant. Below is a table which outlines what you need for common fixings to Hebel such as outdoor lighting and clothes lines.


Q. If I damage my Hebel wall, how do I repair it?

Surface knocks and scratches can be touched up with the same surface coating finish that was applied at construction, like any masonry wall. In the event you are unsure, contact your builder for advice.

If the damage extends beyond the coating system and into the Hebel wall, professional advice should be sought to ensure the damage has not compromised the integrity of the wall.
