The ThermoPlan MZ70® is a Monomur brick with integrated mineral wool insulation.
The ThermoPlan MZ70® is the combination of baked clay and mineral Brickrock® benefits. The ThermoPlan is a hollow brick filled with mineral wool for improved insulation. With width varying from 240 to 490 mm, it can be used for the construction of single-family, double and multi-family dwellings – without any additional insulation. The mineral insulation is non-flammable, water repellent but permeable to vapor, resistant to aging, insulates against heat, cold and noise.
Depends on width of the brick. Varing from 4.56 – 8.61 USD per brick (4.11 – 7.76 EUR per brick) Converted on Aug 2019.

The ThermoPlan is a hollow brick filled with mineral wool for improved insulation. The brick is available in 5 different dimensions. The Length and Height are fixed in 248 and 249 mm respectively and the width can be 240, 300, 365, 425 and 490 mm. Its weight varies from 8.8 to 16.8 kg. The brick is filled with mineral wool for better insulation capacity. The hydrophobic (water repellent) setting of the mineral wool makes the walls moisture resistant.
Bellenberger provides full technical support.
Its as durable as any other brick, it can stand more than 100 years.
The manufacture guarantee heat and sound insulation as well as fire resistance, energy efficiency, high strength, and fast construction.
Testing performed by the manufacturer determined a 45db reduction, R-values ranging from 4.5 to 7.14, and 10 MPa compressive strength, however, no third-party testing has been completed
No third-party organizations, only testing performed by the designer
Builders should wear appropriate protective equipment such as hardhats, gloves and safety glasses while working to protect against physical injury commonly associated with heavy construction.
In addition to cement mortar, a foundation, electricity, water and sanitation systems should be considered.
