What is Hebel?

Hebel is made from Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC). It is a strong, high quality product that is the combination of sand, cement, lime, gypsum, water and an expansion agent.

Hebel products are designed by CSR Building, are quick and easy to install and come with a long list of benefits.

How does Hebel compare to rendered brick?

Whilst bricks have been the first pick for years in construction, many are now turning to Hebel as an alternative.

Hebel is just as solid as traditional bricks, with steel reinforcement for maximum strength and durability. As compared to rendered bricks, Hebel is faster to construct, has a higher tolerance to cracking, and in general is more cost effective.

What are the benefits?

Other than being a durable Australian product, there are great incentives for a home owner to consider using Hebel over bricks. You can significantly reduce your build timeline, lower your energy bills, comply to the highest of bushfire attack levels and get creative with your home design!
