Glas­gow tow­ers cleared

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Glas­gow Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion says none of its build­ings are in­su­lated with the same ma­te­rial as Gren­fell Tower.

The as­so­ci­a­tion, which has multi-storey flats in To­ry­glen and Castlemilk, said none of its blocks con­tain the same ma­te­rial.

In a state­ment is­sued this week the as­so­ci­a­tion said:“The ma­te­ri­als and sys­tems used in our mul­ti­storey in­vest­ment pro­gramme meet and in many cases ex­ceed Scot­tish build­ing stan­dards and reg­u­la­tions for this type of prop­erty.

“The sys­tems used are de­signed to pre­vent the spread of fire and they are man­u­fac­tured with non-com­bustible ma­te­ri­als.”

A ded­i­cated helpline for mutli-storey flat res­i­dents con­cerned about fire safety has been set up at GHA.

The num­ber is 0800 561 5656 and it is open 24 hours a day.
