We acknowledge that in light of the current situation questions may be asked and concerns raised about the safety of our products. We would like to be as transparent as possible in order to provide reassurance to our customers.
All of the products and materials that we use are fully checked and have suitable test data. No product or material without BBA certification or relevant test safety data would be considered for use in any of our buildings.
Any test evidence used to substantiate the fire resistance rating of a construction is carefully checked to ensure that it demonstrates compliance and that it is adequate and applicable to the intended use.
Part of the design process involves specifying the facade treatments of the buildings; this is usually done in conjunction with the clients and architects. The suitability of the chosen facade is then assessed against our construction to ensure that it is appropriate and meets the fire safety requirements of the project.
The fire safety requirements are dependent on height, use, occupancy and position of the building, this determines the type of facade suitable for each build. The materials are then chosen to have the appropriate fire resistance and spread of flame as outlined in approved document Part B Volume 2 (Building Regulations).
The modules are built in a controlled factory environment which provides opportunity for quality workmanship and ensures that the materials are installed in accordance with the test substantiation. This gives quality assurance throughout the whole process, from the initial design process, through to works in the factory and on site.
