Energy Efficient: Hebel panels perform well thermally, helping to keep your house cool from the heat in summer, and keeping it warm and cosy in winter. That means less reliance on heating and cooling, and can lead to savings on energy costs all year round! 

Environmentally Friendly: Manufactured in Australia, Hebel is made using readily available raw materials. Waste generated in the manufacturing process is recycled, even down to the steam that’s produced. Hebel uses 60 percent less embodied energy and make 55 percent fewer greenhouse emissions than other construction materials!

Better Acoustics: Hebel 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.

Fire Resistant: Hebel 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.

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.

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 the external walls of a 150m2 home can go up in just 3 days when installed by experienced Hebel installers!
