Hebel PowerBlock Walls

Hebel PowerBlocks are large AAC blocks, laid in much the same way as bricks but using Hebel Adhesive to form a monolithic structure. Typically, external walls use a single skin of 250mm thick blocks while internal, non-loadbearing walls use 100mm thick blocks.

Walls built with Hebel PowerBlocks are strong and durable, providing you with the security of solid masonry with the added advantages that the unique nature of Hebel AAC can deliver.

Compared to traditional double brick construction, Hebel Block Walls can be laid much faster, saving time and building costs. Building with Hebel PowerBlocks creates more internal floor area for the same building dimensions.

Building with Hebel PowerBlocks provides loadbearing walls that completely eliminate combustible material from the wall construction making Hebel an ideal choice for bushfire prone areas.

Features

  • Exceptional thermal and acoustic insulation properties
  • Non-combustible blocks with frameless construction deliver superior fire resistance
  • 73% less embodied energy and 61% less greenhouse gas emissions than comparative masonry products*
  • Not a food source for termites or vermin and no cavity construction eliminates the chance of harbouring pests
  • Source: LCA Report GECA 2006
