This 50 year old European technology produces extremely small, finely dispersed air pockets within the material. Steel reinforcing mesh (which has been treated with an anti-corrosion coating) is cast into the panel, resulting in a lightweight aerated concrete panel that is strong and durable, but only a quarter of the weight of conventional veneer.
CSR Hebel SoundFloor™ panels are 75mm thick and 1800mm long x 600mm wide to suit industry standard joist spacings. Panels are generally installed by two people, without the need for special lifting equipment. Panels are fixed to joists with a combination of construction adhesive and self drilling countersinking screw fasteners. Panels are also fixed edge-to-edge to all adjoining panels using a CSR Hebel Thin Bed Adhesive.
- Makes a good floor even better...
A CSR Hebel SoundFloor™ system provides the perfect solution, blending many of the solid performance characteristics of the 'concrete slab floor' with the best attributes of 'lightweight, framed floor construction'.
- Versatility that's hard to equal!
CSR Hebel SoundFloor™ is a highly versatile flooring system, which is quickly installed over engineered timber or steel joists. During installation the SoundFloor™ panels are fixed to the joists with screws and adhesive. This composite action results in greater resistance to 'bounce' making SoundFloor™ an excellent solid, stable base for surface flooring.
- Energy Saving
CSR Hebel SoundFloor™ systems help to keep your room temperatures more stable, reducing the energy required to heat and cool your home, and thereby reducing your energy bills and improving your thermal comfort.
- Peace & Privacy
One of the most common problems in modern two storey homes is foot noise. The unique structure of SoundFloor™ assists in reducing sound transmission, and when complemented with appropriate ceiling systems, very high sound insulation performance can be achieved.
- Fire & Pest Resistant
CSR Hebel SoundFloor™ is not a food source for termites and is non-combustible.
- Solid, Durable, but Light
Hebel autoclaved aerated concrete products have proven their performance throughtout Australia for over 15 years and throughout Europe for more than 50 years, with just 25% the weight of conventional concrete - it remains solid and strong with a traditional concrete feel, yet lighweight.
The production of CSR Hebel uses less than 25% of the raw materials used to produce the same volume of standard concrete, yet with no toxic gasses and almost no waste substances. The energy efficiency of a CSR Hebel SoundFloor™ also helps to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and the creation of pollution in your home.
- A Sound Investment
CSR Hebel SoundFloor™ is not a luxury, it's a sound investment for your home. When you've finished comparing alternative materials, we're sure you'll agree, it's hard to ignore the compelling advantages of CSR Hebel SoundFloor™ and Panel Wall Systems.
