Tower cladding is taken off mar­ket

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

The UK gov­ern­ment has asked that a cladding prod­uct be re­moved from the mar­ket amid fears it may not be up to its of­fi­cial fire safety stan­dard.

Fears about Vi­tra­core G2 led to fire safety tests and the “im­me­di­ate ac­tion” that has been taken by the Depart­ment of Hous­ing, Com­mu­ni­ties & Local Gov­ern­ment. The tests com­pleted on Thurs­day showed the prod­uct be­ing sold on the mar­ket dif­fered from the one that passed the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion tests. The prod­uct is on at least two UK res­i­den­tial tower blocks above 18m.
