Zero Boundary Walls

Hebel’s PowerPanelXL Boundary Wall system is one of the most efficient ways to install boundary walls, especially when combined with Hebel’s patented Hebel Hoist technology.

An innovative, hoisting solution used for Multi-Residential projects, the Hebel Hoist attaches directly to the frame of the dwelling, enabling panels to be easily and safely installed right on the boundary.  The result is a more streamlined workflow, improved efficiency, increased value to the build and improved workplace safety.

PowerPanelXL is fast to install, requires less scaffolding on site and can lead to significant cost savings.  Containing steel reinforcement coated with an anti-corrosion layer for maximum durability and strength, PowerPanelXL is non-combustible,  and in the specially engineered boundary wall system, provides outstanding thermal and acoustic performance resulting in a quiet, comfortable home and savings on energy costs.

Intertenancy and Party Walls

Hebel’s PowerPanelXL Intertenancy wall system is a BCA compliant solution 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 discontinuous Intertenancy wall system uses an aluminium bracket to provide the discontinuous construction as required by the BCA.

Fast to install, speed and ease of construction is further assisted by Hebel’s patented Hebel Hoist technology.  An innovative, hoisting solution used for Multi-Residential projects, the Hebel Hoist attaches directly to the frame of the dwelling, enabling party wall panels to be easily and safely installed.

Floors

Hebel flooring systems offer exceptional benefits for multi-residential properties, 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 midfloors with excellent thermal and acoustic performance.  Once finished, the Hebel PowerFloor system provides a solid base for just about any floor covering.

The Hebel PowerFloor+ flooring system is a loadbearing reinforced flooring system that can span up to 5.85 metres and provides a solid, fully engineered cross-braced floor for residential construction.  Lightweight, yet strong, and offering enhanced insulation, this system can be laid in place without formwork or support and is trafficable immediately following installation.  The interlocking of the panels with grout creates a full fire seal between panels, and combined with Hebel’s unique fire resistant properties, it can mean the PowerFloor+ system can achieve FRL’s of up to 3 hours.  Once finished, the floor provides a solid base for a range of floor coverings.

FAQ's

Q. Why is Hebel the superior choice when it comes to building boundary or intertenancy walls?

At Hebel, there is a focus on delivering high-quality products, innovation and high standards of production.  This has enabled Hebel to stand out as a supplier of AAC, and the only Australian manufacturer of AAC.

More recently, Hebel has developed a patented hoisting solution, making it much easier to install boundary and intertenancy walls in areas with limited access.  The ‘Hebel Hoist’ reduces safety risks associated with manual lifting and handling, and improves project efficiency by letting you complete all the dwelling frames at once, saving a minimum of day’s work per wall. Installing with Hebel Hoist also has the potential of increasing the floor area and value of your project because it gives builders the ability to build right up to the boundary without having to leave a gap for scaffolding.

Importantly installation via our Hebel Hoist process ensures that each back to back boundary wall is installed without encroaching the neighbouring boundary and without compromise to meeting fire, acoustic and weather tightness performance. Our Hebel hoist has enabled us to achieve what is near impossible using conventional techniques on site.
