residential homes, Hebel PowerFloor is a solid, non-loadbearing subflooring
that is similar to concrete in look and feel but comes at a significantly lower
Hebel PowerFloor delivers several benefits to the homeowner and is preferred
over traditional flooring materials such as concrete for reasons such as reduced
costs and faster construction (up to 50%); greater insulation benefits,
requiring less heating and cooling; high fire resistance for peace of mind; superior
acoustics with reduced footfall noise and sound transfer between floors; and an
excellent base for ceramic tiles, carpet or polished timber boards.
Combining strength, thermal and acoustic insulation properties, Hebel PowerFloor
is the ideal choice for first floors and suspended ground floors as well as
decks and balconies.

once builders experience the speed of installation and costs savings of Hebel
PowerFloor, plus all the benefits they can on-sell to their clients, it opens
their eyes to the possibilities of lightweight construction.
