VBriQ Pro

The VBriQ Pro system from Alumasc Facades comprises the VBriQ synthetic brick slip finish on Alumasc Pro mineral wool insulation board. VBriQ Pro replicates the appearance of brick without many of the constraints associated with brick-based construction, due to the simplicity of installation, its lightweight nature and its energy efficient manufacture.

This BBA-approved system comprises the following components:

  • VBriQ synthetic brick slips
  • VBriQ Adhesive
  • Alumasc Silicone Primer
  • Alumasc Base Coat
  • Alumasc Scrim Reinforcement
  • Alumasc insulation fixing
  • Alumasc Pro mineral wool insulation
  • Alumasc Bedding Adhesive
  • Substrate

Key Features

VBriQ Pro is an A2 fire-rated EWI system that is widely specified on both low- and high-rise buildings to provide a contemporary brick finish on a non-combustible mineral wool insulation. The VBriQ synthetic brick slips can be manufactured to replicate almost any brick type and used in conjunction with a range of mortar colours to achieve the design intent of the architect.

Key Performance Criteria:

  • Fire performance: A2-s1,d0
  • Thermal performance: Typical U Values are:
    • 100 mm Pro insulation ~ 0.30 W/m2K
    • 120 mm Pro insulation ~ 0.26 W/m2K
    • 170 mm Pro insulation ~ 0.19 W/m2K
  • Acoustic performance: Weighted sound reduction index of c. 5 – 8 dB
