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.
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.

What is AAC?
AAC was developed in Scandinavia over 70 years ago and is now used widely all over the world.
A lightweight masonry product, AAC replicates a mineral that already exists in nature and uses readily available raw materials such as sand, cement, lime and gypsum, which combined with water and an expansion agent, produces a high quality masonry material.
Hebel products and systems are designed and developed in Australia by CSR Building Products, and are rigorously tested to ensure a consistently high quality product, making building with Hebel efficient and low risk.Read More
