Structural Performance

Compressive Strength

PB_Produktion_Labor_3002

Hebel AAC has performed well for many years in seismically active and hurricane-prone regions around the world. Hebel AAC buildings have shown good resistance to earthquake forces. The non-combustible and fire resistant characteristics provide further advantage against fires commonly associated with earthquakes.


Advantages of structural performance on Hebel AAC.
 

  ✓Strength can resist wind pressures without reinforcement
  ✓Shear wall strength can resist lateral loads
  ✓High impact resistance
