Presented by BLUECHIP
April 21st, 2021
Several fires over the past decade, including one at London’s Grenfell Tower in 2017 that resulted in significant loss of life, have shone a light on the use of combustible cladding in tower buildings around the world including here in Australia.
Despite regulatory change aimed at clarifying the issue of fire safety, there is still a widespread lack of understanding based on comparing ‘generic’ product types regardless of brand. In the case of aluminium cladding, for example, while some products are made with a combustible core and should never be used, others comply with fire safety regulations and are completely safe.
What are these compliant aluminium cladding products and how do they satisfy the fire safety requirements? Moreover, how do they compare to each other in terms of other important considerations like waterproofing, durability, sustainability, and thermal transfer?
