The Ferrier Point tower block in Newham, London was stripped of dangerous ACM cladding in 2019 and replaced with VitraDual® A1 rated non-combustible PVDF pre-coated rainscreen cladding panels, manufactured by Fairview.
Unfortunately a fire gutted a flat in the tower block on Monday 22nd June 2020 – the fire broke out of the window, however the use of VitraDual® A1 was proved to be well-chosen, as the system completely prevented any fire spread via the façade and did all that it is meant to do in a real-life fire.
Had this fire occurred before the block was re-clad, the results could well have been completely different and catastrophic.
VitraDual® is A1 rated to BS EN 13501-01, BR135 certified and CWCT tested.
Stocked at our Bridgwater UK factory for fast delivery, this fantastic product is the rainscreen cladding of choice for any high-rise hotel, flats, student accommodation, schools, hospitals, leisure centres or any other building, where fire safety, superb aesthetics and a long warranty are required.
Correctly installed as a tested and proven system in conjunction with our VitraFix® support framing – VitraDual® is a quality and safe solution for both new-builds and re-clad schemes offering peace of mind to the building owner, client, resident and contractors alike.
