Hebel products and systems deliver a range of outstanding benefits to builders, architects, and homeowners.
Strong and solid
Hebel panels are high-performance products containing steel reinforcement for added strength with an anti-corrosion layer on the steel for maximum durability.
Hebel panels have superior insulation qualities compared to other masonry products. Tests have shown that a house built with Hebel PowerPanel XL performs better than brick veneer in terms of both heating and cooling. This can save the homeowner in heating and cooling energy costs, and earn the home half a star more in energy star ratings.

Quality and speed
Building with Hebel can mean faster construction times, without sacrificing on quality. One standard Hebel panel is the equivalent of 75 traditional bricks, which means a 150m2 home can go up as quickly as within 3 days when installed by experienced Hebel installers. A high quality building material, Hebel provides a great solution in terms of speed and ease of construction which is why it is increasingly becoming the builder’s choice.
Independent testing shows that overall, Hebel has a 30% lower environmental impact than concrete or brick veneer. Hebel panels use 60% less embodied energy and produces 55% less greenhouse emissions compared to concrete or brick veneer, making it a more sustainable, environmentally friendly choice of building material.
A Hebel home is a quiet one because it reduces noise transmission. Compared to polystyrene and many fibre cement substrates, the use of Hebel for external walls reduces noise from external sources like traffic, meaning more peace and quiet. And when used for upper floors, can reduce sound transference between levels as well.
Hebel is renowned for its fire resistant properties, and is a non-combustible building material. Hebel systems have been tested by the CSIRO and are proven to achieve Fire Resistance Levels (FRLs) of 60 minutes through to 240 minutes, and meet or exceed the requirements for all six Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) categories. This makes it an ideal choice in bushfire zones.
