The title compound is a double oxygen-bridged dimeric heteronuclear metal complex. The coordination around the Cu atom is distorted square-planar involving two O and two N atoms from the bis(salicylidene)-1,3-propanediamine ligand. The Zn atom in the molecule has a distorted tetrahedral coordination sphere consisting of the two O atoms of the ligand and the two Br atoms. The bridging plane between the metal atoms is not planar.
