• News of Tests for Fire Safety on Cladding

    Following recent fires, anyone wishing to understand more about the systems and risks should click on the link below.
    The only way to prevent fires like this is to have a code that incorporates tests like the NFPA 285.

    The UK should follow what Dubai has done, there is much criticism over the way in which DCD has handled the recent changes to standards but the action has been swift and decisive.
    Some fear with this fire in the UK is it will take too long for government to act on.

    In reaction to the fires here we are developing a new, lightweight and cost effective aluminium system with no combustible material.

    Test cycles should be done by the end of the year and hopefully but an end to tragic scenes like those in London.
