Typically, external walls use a single skin of 250mm thick blocks while internal, non-loadbearing walls use 100mm thick blocks. Walls built with Hebel® Blocks are strong and durable, providing you with the security of solid masonry with the added advantages that the unique nature of Hebel® AAC can deliver.
Compared to traditional double brick construction, Hebel® Block Walls can be laid much faster, saving time and building costs. Building with Hebel® Blocks creates more internal floor area for the same building dimensions. Building with Hebel® Blocks provides loadbearing walls that completely eliminate combustible material from the wall construction making Hebel® an ideal choice for bushfire prone areas.
A range of blocks and floor panel sizes are available to suit a variety of applications including internal and external walls, flooring, lintels, step treads and bath hobs.
Hebel® block homes provide frameless loadbearing walls and when constructed in accordance with the masonry code and Hebel’s Block Design and Installation guides, comply with all 6 BAL requirements with a Fire Resistance Level (FRL) of 240/240/240 – far higher than the standards require.
Building with Hebel® provides substantial benefits over traditional solid masonry construction materials:
- Excellect thermal and acoustic insulation properties
- Non-combustible blocks with frameless construction delivers superior fire resistance
- 73% less embodied energy and 61% less greenhouse gas emissions than comparative masonry products (source LCA report GECA 2006)
- Faster installation than double brick and concrete

CSR High Build is designed to be applied 5-8mm thick in one coat. However, a two coat application will allow the final coat to set evenly and ensure a higher quality finish. In this case, each skim coat is only 2-3mm in thickness and the final coat can be applied as soon as the first has started to stiffen (can be 15-20 minutes). CSR High Build render is available in 20kg bags. Coverage depends on thickness and is approximately 2.5m2 per 20kg bag for recommended thickness of 5-8mm.
