Government issues guidance on cladding safety

Government issues guidance on cladding safety

08 September 2017

The Government has asked local authorities to encourage owners of buildings over 18m to submit cladding samples for BRE testing to confirm cladding type and make contact with the Fire and Rescue service to receive advice on ensuring fire safety on their buildings.

 

The move follows test results for 173 social housing tower blocks with Aluminium Cladding Materials, in which only 8 passed fire safety building regulations.
