With more than 20 years of in-service history producing AAC cladding in Australia for the Australian and New Zealand markets, CSR Hebel is recognised for providing innovative products that are designed to meet and exceed performance requirements.
CSR Hebel AAC cladding systems are much more than simply a substrate for render; PowerPanel not only provides the solid look and feel of concrete, but utilises all the benefits of the AAC panel to deliver superior fire resistance, insulation and soundproofing performance, resulting in a more comfortable, cost-efficient home.
Delivering additional thermal insulation across the wall (up to 25% more than ventilated AAC systems and 31% more than brick veneer), PowerPanel allows the option of reducing wall batts to an R1.8 value while still exceeding the requirements of the NZBC. In addition, PowerPanel provides an acoustic barrier (up to STC 46) and a fire rated wall (up to FRR 180/180/180).
PowerPanel can be applied directly to steel framing without the need or cost of an additional thermal break.
Lightweight, PowerPanel is easily handled and installed on site, delivering a faster build time and lower labour costs. Building with Hebel PowerPanel also means less mess on site, providing a cleaner, safer work area and reducing clean-up at project completion.
Furthermore, Hebel delivers many environmental advantages, using 61% and 64% less embodied energy and 64% and 55% less greenhouse gas emissions than concrete and brick veneer respectively.
CSR Hebel PowerPanel is wholly manufactured in Australia by CSR Building Products Limited, to meet European standards. It is CodeMark certified and carries an extensive 20 year warranty.
