Brick Veneer / Reverse Brick Veneer Walls

Brick veneer and reverse brick veneer  generally create a 50mm cavity between the constructions.  Conductive heat flow is generally not a problem as it is with a clad wall system.  Sometimes a combination of the products listed below will be of benefit depending on climate zone and required noise and thermal control.

Every house in Australia should be externally wrapped with an aluminium anti-glare sarking foil for external walls and roofs.  Alternatively a form of reflective foil laminate or breather vapour barrier could be used to act as a moisture barrier and minimise the ingress of condensation.
Suitable Products:
  • Autex Polyester Greenstuff Batts  (Wall Batts  R1.5  R2.0  R2.5 90mm products) are non itch, non irriitant batts to fit in the standard 90mm external wall construction frame. 
  • Autex Polyester Quietsuff batts (acoustic batts) can be used on external walls if additional noise control is desired.
  • Concertina Foil Batts are perfect for application in brick veneer walls.  Concertina Foil Batts stapled to the sides of the studs will improve the overall insulation of a clad wall to R2.2 and a brick veneer wall to R2.4.  The  Concertina Foil Batt system divides the 90mm airspace into two reflective airspaces, similar to the thermos flask principle with no contact to external foil. Foil Batts cannot slump or absorb moisture and they provide more space for electrical cabling, water and gas lines.   They resist condensation build-up and will not absorb or retain or conduct heat or moisture.  They are non-irritant, compact and thermally efficient.  Foil Batts are the easiest DIY insulation and can be installed in ceilings, roofs, walls and floors for new and existing homes.    
  • Foilboard  10mm, 15mm (most suitable in the range), 20mm and 25mm thicknesses available.  It is best if the Foilboard is directly fixed to the timber stud framework using Foilboard fasteners and then a counter timber batten to fix the cladding to.  This creates a double reflective airspace and an increased R value.  This system will not allow conducted summer heat gain through the external wall.
  • Polystyrene Rendered wall applications
  • KINGSPAN (Closed Cell Foam)
