Further to AMM 137-17 and AMM 141-17, BRE has announced the second set of results from its large scale ‘systems tests’, assessing the fire safety of whole buildings. The second test was of a wall cladding system consisting of ACM cladding with a polyethylene filler (Category 3) with stone wall insulation, with fire breaks and cavity barriers in place.
This AMM gives the results of this fire test together with the Government’s Expert Panel’s advice. A number of reports, a press statement, advice to owners and landlords and an interim review of building regulations have been issued and this AMM lists these reports and provides links to where the reports/advice etc can be obtained.
