Hebel Panels


What is Hebel

Hebel is a strong, versatile, high performance building product made from Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC).

As Australia’s only manufacturer of AAC, CSR Hebel has over 30 years of experience meaning you can be assured you are getting a high quality product with the technical expertise to back it up.

Available in blocks and panels, Hebel is easy to handle, quick to build with, and better to live in.

Hebel panels contain anti-corrosion steel reinforcement for added strength and are available in a range of lengths for applications including walls, floors and external cladding.

Where can it be used?

Hebel is a versatile building material that can be used for a number of applications including houses, apartments, commercial buildings and civil applications. For examples:

  • External walls
  • Floors
  • Fences
  • Inter-tenancy walls
  • Corridor walls
  • Shaftwalls
  • Service walls
  • High Rise facades
  • Balcony blades
  • Firewalls
  • Sound barriers
  • Fire tunnels

How Hebel is Made?

What is AAC?

AAC was developed in Scandinavia over 70 years ago and is now used widely all over the world.

A lightweight masonry product, AAC replicates a mineral that already exists in nature and uses readily available raw materials such as sand, cement, lime and gypsum, which combined with water and an expansion agent, produces a high quality masonry material.

Hebel products and systems are designed and developed in Australia by CSR Building Products, and are rigorously tested to ensure a consistently high quality product, making building with Hebel efficient and low risk.

The History of AAC

Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) technology was first developed in Scandinavia over 70 years ago and is now used widely all over the world. But what is its history and how did this revolutionary material later become known as 'Hebel'?

Lightweight and environmentally friendly, AAC was perfected in the mid-1920s by the Swedish architect and inventor Dr. Johan Axel Eriksson and soon gained rapid popularity in Europe due to its superior insulation properties and ease of installation. But it wasn’t until decades later that its full potential was truly realised.

In 1945, German construction engineer Josef Hebel established a manufacturing process where prefabricated AAC panels were reinforced with steel – vastly improving the material’s strength and structural reliability.

The patented product, which he named ‘Hebel’, also accelerated the traditional time of construction. It became instrumental in the rapid rebuild of damaged German cities as a result of WWII. With this local success soon came global expansion, as Mr Hebel constructed factories in the Middle East, Asia and Greater Europe.

Hebel’s reputation has stood the test of time, and today we continue to lead the way in fast, economic and sustainable building solutions.

Reinforced AAC Standards (AS 5146:2015 Parts 1-3)

In 2015 Standards Australia approved and published a set of standards for reinforced AAC, known as AS 5146:2015 (Parts 1-3). These standards help guide the use of reinforced AAC in designs and construction within Australia.

AS 5146 (Parts1-3) were referenced in the Building Code of Australia in May 2016, making Reinforced AAC a ‘deemed to satisfy’ (DTS) building material. This means that if builders and installers construct a building using the details provided in AS 5146, (Part 3), it should make for easier certification of the building by the relevant building certification authority. All Hebel products and systems are compliant with AS 5146 (Parts 1-3).

Hebel Product Range

Used right across the construction sector, Hebel AAC products are non combustible. They are suitable for external walls / facades, internal walls, floors, fencing, sound barriers, fire & acoustic walls and fire tunnels.
