Experts said the composite foam sandwich panels helped spread the fire quickly from the lower floors all the way up the block. The material used in the cladding on Grenfell was the cheaper, more flammable version of the two available options, an investigation of the supply chain by The Guardian claimed.
Introduction. The term 'cladding' refers to components that are attached to the primary structure of a building to form non-structural, external surfaces. This is as opposed to buildings in which the external surfaces are formed by structural elements, such as masonry walls. Aluminium Composite Material
of high-rise buildings with cladding is needed to ensure the material is fire-retardant. While investigators say it is too early to determine the cause of the blaze in which at least 12 people died, residents have blamed new aluminium composite cladding - installed to make the building more energy efficient
Made from hard-wearing and low-maintenance composite timber, Dura Cladding is available in Flush styles in widths from 150mm to 250mm, and in a Weatherboard style in 150mm planks. The availability of wider planks in the Flush style provides a striking finish and also benefits from drastically reduced installation times
What was the cladding made of? The cladding was installed by Harley Curtain Wall Ltd, which was paid £3million for the job. Company director Ray Bailey said that they had used a common Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) panels which are a commonly used product in the refurbishment industry.
