by Carlisle Homes


Have you chosen high-performance Hebel for your home’s facade? If you’re wondering how to attach outdoor essentials like a clothesline and light fittings to it, we have the answers – plus a how-to video!

Growing numbers of Carlisle homeowners are choosing to build their home with Hebel, and the reasons are clear – Australian-made Hebel has great thermal-efficient properties, keeping your home naturally warmer in winter and cooler in summer, and gives your facade a stunning, modern look.

But there is one question many people have asked: Is a Hebel facade strong enough to support outdoor essentials like hose reels, clotheslines, lights, taps, and security systems?

The answer is – absolutely! And the process is so easy, you can even attach them yourself.

To get you started, we’ve made a step-by-step video guide on how to fix a CSR-approved clothesline to your Hebel facade here.


In the meantime, here’s a bit more about Hebel, and how this game-changing building product can take your home to the next level.


Australian-made Hebel is crafted from raw materials and features anti-corrosion steel reinforcements for maximum strength and durability, giving you the confidence of knowing that your home will stay strong and secure for decades.

What is Hebel?

Hebel is the modern alternative to traditional brick.

Hebel building panels are made from Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (ACC), which is reinforced with steel for added strength and topped with an anti-corrosion layer for maximum durability. Once assembled, they create a strong, secure home that will look and perform brilliantly for years.

Hebel panels are lightweight, but they are just as strong as bricks and mortar. They give your home the look of fully rendered masonry, which you can customise in a choice of hundreds of Dulux colours.

Hebel is also eco-friendly, with unique thermal properties that boost your home’s energy efficiency and lower its running costs.

A Hebel home goes up faster than a brick home – in fact, it can go up in as little as three days. The 75-millimetre-thick panels are fixed to battens, which are directly attached to the front, sides and rear of your home.

From clotheslines to outdoor lights, you can easily attach lightweight essentials to your Hebel exterior using basic tools and CSR tested and approved supplies from your local hardware store, even if you’re fairly new to DIY.

How do I attach them?
