Can you fix to Hebel?
Drilling and sealing Holes, or penetrations, can be drilled in Hebel walls using a masonry drill bit fitted to a standard drill, not a rotary hammer one. When the hole has been filled with the fixture or components such as brackets, the gap around should be filled with an external grade sealant.
Can you mount to Hebel?
What we recommend is that the clothesline be installed independently of any Hebel wall surface, either by using clothesline ground mount kits or posts, depending on the style of clothesline. Hebel is great for building with, but not good for fixing clotheslines to.
