Hebel, or lightweight concrete, is well recognized as being one of the most environmentally sustainable building materials available today. It combines lower materials and energy usage in manufacture with a range of environmental benefits in use.
Not only does Hebel use less energy in its manufacture, its highly efficient insulating properties mean that buildings using lightweight concrete require less energy for heating and cooling. A Hebel Block wall is more than three-and-a-half times more thermally resistant than standard brick veneer or even double brick.
All CSR Lightweight Concrete Products & Systems come with an excellent source of technical information and installation guidelines to make the installation process as informative and straight forward as possible. In addition to this, BuildCor are happy to provide you with installers for your project or assist in staff training in order to inform your staff of the correct procedures in order to get your project completed to the highest standard possible.
HebelHome combines clean architectural lines with your choice of contemporary colours and textures to create a stylish, modern character for your new home.
The thermal and acoustic insulation properties on Hebel® Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) can significantly improve the comfort in your new home. The Hebel® panels used in HebelHome have up to 5 times the thermal resistance of a standard house brick and the 250mm Hebel® Block used in HebelHome Platinum have 11 times the thermal resistance. Your HebelHome will maintain a more even temperature so you can be more comfortable in summer and winter with lower reliance on heating and cooling appliances. Enjoy a more comfortable living experience and save on energy costs at the same time. You can breathe easy knowing that Hebel® is a non-toxic building material with no risk of gas emissions.
The low bulk density of Hebel® means that less than a quarter of the resources and raw materials are used in its production than for other masonry products.Hebel has been independently assessed by Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) as having significantly reduced environmental loads (more than 60% in many cases) compared with alternative building materials. As a result Hebel® is proud to have been awarded the GECA label for each of its products and systems. By Choosing Hebel® you can feel good in the knowledge that you have chosen a building material that has a lower impact on our environment compared to standard masonry.
