Fixtures and fittings – how to secure to your Hebel walls

Homeowners often ask us how to secure their fittings to their Hebel walls – items such as light fittings, taps, downpipes, clotheslines, hot water services and hose reels. Using the right fitting for the relevant fixture is  important to help avoid damaging the wall.

It’s important to seek advice on your individual home from your builder or designer before drilling holes or securing any loads onto Hebel walls.

Drilling into Hebel walls

Holes can be drilled into 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.

Fixing heavy and/or vibrating loads

Homeowners should be aware that items such as gates, decks, pergolas, carports and basketball hoops can cause vibrations or excessive loads on Hebel walls – and they shouldn’t be secured to the walls. There is a solution; fixing them to posts that are independent of the wall will ensure the load isn’t directly transferred to the Hebel panels or blocks.

These fixings are available through selected hardware outlets and building suppliers around Australia.
