ROCKWOOL Analysis Reveals Extent of Combustible Materials on Buildings

In the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire, everyone agreed that urgent action was needed to make sure that such a tragedy could never happen again. The role played by combustible materials in spreading the fire up the building has been well documented. In response, the Government ordered an investigation into high-rise residential buildings with the same ACM cladding type as Grenfell and found some 457 towers that were affected. Today, ROCKWOOL is publishing its analysis of buildings in England, showing that there are hundreds of high-rise and high-risk buildings with combustible materials which have not yet been identified.
