PreviewWonderwall is an external wall insulation system with a real brick slip finish.

It combines the advantages of modern construction techniques with the appeal of traditional brickwork.

The system is used in the social housing and school refurbishment sectors, where façades are often in need of aesthetic and thermal upgrade or on ground floors of high rise blocks where a robust system is needed. Please note Wonderwall is NOT suitable for private housing. Minimum order quantity is 500m2 and only sold through our network of Registered Installers.

• Fast and easy installation
• High thermal efficiency
• Maximum level of impact resistance
• Traditional brick finish
• On-site flexibility enables shaping to suit openings and other details
• Wide choice of brick slip colours and textures including extruded and stock facing slips.
• Wide choice of pointing mortar colours

Insulation & Carrier Sheet
Wonderwall comprises of a rigid 25mm or 50mm thick phenolic insulation board which is pre-bonded to a brickwork coordinating carrier sheet measuring 1.2m x 2.4m in size. If necessary additional insulation can be added behind the system to increase the thermal performance in conjunction with a framed structure.

The composite panel is fixed to the substructure on site using selected proprietary insulation fixings nominally at the rate of 11 per m2. Fixing type is dependant on existing substrate.

Brick Slips
Wonderwall accepts standard 20mm thick brick slips however it can take brick slips up to 30mm thick for small feature areas. A purpose made adhesive is applied to the carrier sheet using an applicator gun, the brick slips are then applied with a suitable gap for pointing (within 72 hours).

External corners, soldier courses and reveals can also be achieved by the use of L-shaped pistol brick slips.

Finally a specialist pointing mortar available in a wide range of colours is applied between all brick slips to complete the installation.
