WALL : BROWNIE Slab

BROWNIE Wall Slab is designed specifically for press fit installation without the need for stapling or fastening. It can be fitted between timber or steel studs in a wall cavity system applications. They resist vibration or shake down and fit readily around uneven surfaces. Once installed, the BROWNIE Slab 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 either timber or steel frame wall system applications. BROWNIE Slab range encompasses multiple densities, thicknesses and dimensions to suit typical timber or steel framed studs and to satisfy a broad spectrum of building requirements.






The slab are compatible with wood or steel studs in walls. BROWNIE Wall Slab reduces noise entering the home when installed in the external walls, or reduce noise transfer between rooms when installed in the internal walls. BROWNIE Wall Slabs are supplied in convenient width of  0.58m to suit standard housing construction for 600mm stud centres. The rigidity of BROWNIE Wall Slab assures users the product will not sag within the cavity. Sagging of insulation creates voids which in turn diminish a building systems overall thermal and acoustic performance. BROWNIE Wall Slabs can achieve a high range of Rw and Rw+Ctr acoustic ratings when installed with gypsum plasterboard ensuring effective isolation and separation of living and working spacing.

  • FORMALDEHYDE-FREE

Formaldehyde has traditionally been used as part of the binder in glass mineral wool insulation. Although there is no health risk with the traditional product, formaldehyde at higher level may cause irritation and sensitivity. PGF Insulation formaldehyde-free insulation utilises an innovative new binder that eliminates binder-related formaldehyde emissions during manufacturing and once installed, will not off-gas formaldehyde in the indoor environment.
