CSR Hebel recognises that providing assurance and demonstrating that performance requirements will be met or exceeded are key assertions to be made when delivering a product to market. When the product is a cladding or involves life or property safety, as is the case with fire rated products, then these assertions become even more critical to those selecting or specifying solutions.
For CSR Hebel, this understanding was a defining factor in their choice to use CodeMark certification when providing systems to market in NZ.
Hebel provides innovative products that have insulation, acoustic and fire resistant properties. These properties are utilised within the Hebel PowerPanel and Hebel PowerFloor systems, which are high-performance, steel-reinforced, lightweight AAC panels attached to the building frame.
"Innovation and development are an important part of CSR business across Australasia and we take pride in our leadership role within the industry," says Stephen Walker, New Zealand Manager. "It was then a natural choice to adopt the use of CodeMark, with its lead role in third party certification for Building Code Compliance."
As strong supporters of the Product Certification scheme both in NZ and Australia, CSR Hebel currently holds six CodeMark certificates. In NZ their CodeMark certified systems are Hebel PowerPanel50 External Wall System, Hebel PowerPanelXL External Wall System and Hebel PowerFloor.
Hebel is distributed in NZ direct to market by CSR Hebel, a division of CSR Building Products (NZ) Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of CSR in Australia.
