Further to AMM 137-17, AMM 141-17, AMM 145 -17, AMM 156-17 and AMM 157-17, BRE has published the results from its additional large scale ‘systems test’ (referred to as Test 7). The test was of a wall cladding system consisting of ACM cladding with a fire retardant polyethylene filler (Category 2) with phenolic foam 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 and advice to owners and landlords have been issued and this AMM lists these reports and provides links to where the reports/advice etc can be obtained.
