london - The American company that provided facade cladding for the renovation of the Grenfell Tower, puts the sale of that product on tires. According to the BBC, Arconic was able to stop selling Reynobond PE material for use in high-rise buildings.
The company took the decision in the aftermath of the lethal fire in London, which killed 79 people earlier this month. Arconic stated in a statement that the facade placement is no longer sold to high-rise projects because construction regulations differ in different parts of the world.
The flammable wall covering is seen as the main reason for the fire to spread rapidly in Grenfell Tower. The British authorities recognized that the material should not actually have been used on a building that is over 18 meters. Also in other countries, the use of rules is bound.
