CSR Hebel has launched a new solid flooring system designed to provide
both acoustic and thermal benefits to the home.
Recommended as a sound investment for a quieter and more comfortable
home, the new Hebel PowerFloor enables homeowners to turn down sound emissions in
their homes, and reduce sound transmission between floors. Providing the feel
of a concrete floor at a significantly lower cost, the versatile PowerFloor system
consists of thick panels that are installed over conventional joists and fit
snugly together to form a strong, smooth floor.
The new Hebel PowerFloor offers an excellent solid base for ceramic
tiles, carpet or polished timber boards, giving homeowners the assurance of a
quieter home as it eliminates the squeaking, bouncing and noise normally
associated with non-masonry flooring substrates such as particle or timber
The PowerFloor’s proven superior acoustic and thermal insulation properties
will provide a more comfortable and tranquil home.
Pymble homeowners Malcolm and Belinda have installed PowerFloor in their
home and are very happy with the results as no sound is transmitted between the
floors and there is no creaking from the floor boards.
The thermal efficiencies of PowerFloor also reduce the reliance on
heating and cooling appliances, so homeowners will enjoy a comfortable home all
year round with potentially lower energy costs.
Malcolm and Belinda were advised by their architect to build their home
with Hebel in conjunction with underfloor heating and cooling. Pipes have been
installed underneath their floors to basically heat and cool the floors. Once
the floor is warmed up for a few hours, it stays warm till the next day.
Matt Carty, Managing Director, Carty Property Group has also selected Hebel
PowerFloor for his client’s homes due to the high thermal and acoustic benefits
delivered by the product. Building with Hebel also means projects are
constructed quickly and homeowners can move into their dream homes faster.
Carty explains that Hebel PowerFloor makes it much quieter for people
living in the house; additionally, it offers thermal benefits, presents an even
surface and is also structurally sound, helping create a perfectly flat floor,
which is not possible with concrete floors. This combination of strength and
thermal and acoustic insulation properties makes PowerFloor an ideal choice for
first floor and suspended ground floors as well as decks and balconies.
Simple and fast to install with less mess than concrete floors and less
wastage compared to particle and timber flooring, Hebel PowerFloor eliminates delays
to the building schedule. The flooring system can be easily installed by
on-site trades such as carpenters.
Designed as a solid flooring material, Hebel is produced with less than
a quarter of the resources and raw materials used in the manufacture of other
Hebel has been awarded the Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA)
label in recognition of its significantly reduced environmental impact.
