MASONRY : BROWNIE Blanket

BROWNIE Masonry Blankets have been designed to provide long term fire safety, thermal and acoustic control for external masonry walls. Once installed, the BROWNIE Blanket acts as a highly effective barrier to heat flow, keeping your building warm during cold weather and cool during hot weather. It combines cost efficiency with the highest standard of insulation performance when installed in masonry wall system applications. BROWNIE Wall Blanket range encompasses multiple densities, thicknesses and dimensions to suit typical masonry wall system and to satisfy a broad spectrum of building requirements.




BROWNIE Masonry Blanket reduces noise entering the home when installed in the external masonry walls. The insulation blankets are supplied in various thickness to suit the performance requirements. BROWNIE Masonry Blanket can achieve a high range of Rw and Rw+Ctr acoustic ratings when installed with masonry wall ensuring effective isolation and separation of living and working spacing. It contribute to the BCA’s acceptable construction practices to achieve the required acoustic performance in cavity wall construction.
