Australia’s Leaders in Building Facade Assessment Services for Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane & Canberra
In 2014, a devastating fire consumed the Melbourne Lacrosse Building. Three years later, another inferno engulfed Grenfell Tower in London, claiming hundreds of innocent lives. The lives of people who had no idea the cladding recommended for their façade engineering was highly combustible.
The cladding material used is commonly known as Aluminium Composite Panelling (ACP). ACP became the standard material of choice amongst many engineering companies throughout the 1990’s because it was effective in weather protection, as well as providing proficient sound and thermal insulation. Essentially ACP is two thin sheets of aluminium with a thin core of polyethylene, which is not only flammable, but its construction and design leaves it very difficult to extinguish.
Recent tragedies have highlighted how highly volatile ACP can be when exposed to fire and how desolating the effects can be. States across the country are introducing new legislation that calls for the removal of ACP and for it to be replaced with a non-combustible facade material that complies with current regulations for facade engineering.
By undertaking a building facade assessment, you can move forward with the peace of mind that you have mitigated your risk from possible disaster.
