Fences are an integral part of a home, contributing to the overall
aesthetic and street appeal as well as providing security, privacy and
protection against noise. Homeowners consider their yards and gardens as sanctuaries
away from the hustle and bustle of a busy working week, using these spaces for
entertaining and as extensions of an indoor space.
Installing a high quality fence around a home provides a sense of
privacy, creates a barrier between neighbours, and offers an area for
gardening, entertaining, exercise and R&R.
Hebel’s new innovative PowerFence is an attractive, cost-effective and
versatile masonry fencing system that can be easily installed with its
lightweight panels and simple construction method.
Suitable as boundary fencing for face brick or rendered homes, and offering
an affordable alternative to standard masonry fences, the Hebel PowerFence can
have an exposed joint profile or monolithic look, and is easily routed to
create design details that complement the home. The lightweight fencing panels
can be painted or rendered to blend in with the overall aesthetic of the home
or adapted using a range of decorative treatments such as timber panels and
An innovative masonry building product manufactured from sand, cement,
lime gypsum and aerating agents boasting high acoustic absorbing properties, CSR
Hebel is fast becoming a popular building material amongst homeowners who want
a rendered masonry finish and a solid feel. Hebel is a proven environmentally
sound material that is very easy to work with and lends itself to a wide range
of internal and external DIY applications.
Hebel PowerFence provides a modular masonry structure using lightweight
PowerPanel panels and steel posts, which can be quickly and easily erected
without the need for extensive excavation or strip footings. A specially
designed PowerFence bracket allows the low-cost 75mm steel post to be used for
a large variety of fence configurations. The bracket can be rotated around the
post for easy installation of corners and also be separated vertically on the
post to allow panels to be ‘stepped’ for sloped terrains.
Key features and benefits of Hebel PowerFence include high acoustic
properties decreasing street and vehicle noise pollution; assured privacy and
security ensuring greater property resale value; physical deterrence to any potential
burglars and vandals; designed to meet most environmental conditions for
suburban fencing in Australia; and high fire resistance with testing by CSIRO to
meet or exceed the requirements for all six Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) categories.
All Hebel DIY projects are designed for easy
installation and use Hebel products readily available from major hardware
retailers such as Bunnings.
