Hebel PowerBlocks can be laid using construction tools/equipment.

String Line – A string line is required to accurately set out and lay Hebel® PowerBlock Walls.

Brick/Blocklaying Profiles – used to gauge the block course are being laid level.

Mixing Bucket – a minimum 20 litre bucket is required for mixing Hebel® Mortar, Hebel® Adhesive and Hebel® HighBuild™ render.

Electric Drill – an electric drill is required to mix the Hebel® Mortar, Hebel Adhesive and Hebel HighBuild render. It is also used to drill clearance holes in the blocks so they can be
placed over the tied down rods where required.

Stirrer – fitted to the electric drill, the stirrer is used to mix the Hebel® Mortar, Hebel Adhesive and Hebel HighBuild render inside the mixing bucket.

Notched Trowel – the notched trowel is used to apply the Hebel® Adhesive to the Hebel® surfaces. The width of the trowel must match the block thickness to ensure the adhesive is applied with full and even coverage.

Rubber Mallet – a rubber mallet is required to ‘tap’ the Hebel® PowerBlocks onto the adhesive and into place.

Spirit Level – required to install the blocks level and plumb.

Hand Saw – a Hebel® handsaw can be used to cut Hebel® PowerBlocks to length and height.

Powered Bandsaw – a bandsaw is ideal for cutting Hebel® PowerBlocks. (perfect when there are many site cuts to be performed).

Hebel® Square – a purpose built square is available for use when marking and cutting Hebel® PowerBlocks.

Steel, Plastic and Timber Trowels – these trowels may be required for the installation of the Highbuild render and texture coatings.

Sanding Float – used to even out inconsistencies in the Hebel® PowerBlock Wall in preparation for render/texture coats.

Hebel® Hand Router – may be used to chase services into solid Hebel® walls.

Circular Saw – (fitted with a diamond blade) may be used to chase services into solid Hebel® walls.

Electric Router – may be used to chase services into solid Hebel® walls.

Crane – may be required to lift large Hebel® Lintels and Hebel® custom floor panels.

Lifting Grabs – required for use in conjunction with crane for lifting Hebel lintels and custom floor panels.

Scaffold – Scaffold is required when building block walls. The amount of scaffold depends on the height of the walls.

Sealant Gun – required to fill the control joints in the Hebel® PowerBlock Walls.

CSR Hebel Delivery and Storage

PowerBlock  Delivery

PowerBlock pallets should be unloaded and moved with only approved lifting devices. Before use, the lifting devices should be checked for the required lifting tags. PowerBlock pallets should be unloaded and stored as close to the intended installation area as possible. This will increase work efficiency and minimise the need for secondary lifting.

It is good practice to inspect the delivery for damaged blocks. Unnecessary handling will increase the risk of damage to the Hebel® PowerBlocks.

Care should be taken when cutting the packaging straps, blocks may come away and cause injury or become damaged.

TIP – When a block is damaged it may be possible to cut away the damaged section and use the remaining portion in the wall.

Storage

All materials must be kept dry and preferably stored undercover. Hebel® PowerBlocks should be left on their pallet until they are required. Place the pallet on a level and stable surface. The project engineer should be consulted as to the adequacy of the structure to support Hebel® PowerBlocks if they are not stored directly on the ground or concrete slab.
