German city 'will evacuate building because of Grenfell tower-style cladding'

German city 'will evacuate building because of Grenfell tower-style cladding'

Cladding material used in the construction of the Grenfell Tower in London was thought to be a key factor in the quick spread of the devastating fire on June 14th.

The figures emerged as a fire safety expert raised doubts over the combustibility tests being carried out on cladding samples by the Building Research Establishment (BRE).

It follows checks on cladding from residential tower blocks, with all 95 samples submitted by councils so far failing fire safety tests.

The 73 residents of the building in Wuppertal were either asked to stay with friends and relatives or were given access to furnished apartments, of which there is a glut, Braun said, because of preparations for refugee resettlement.

The firm also produces a fire-rated aluminium composite material (ACM), Reynobond FR, which uses a fire retardant mineral central core.

Bournemouth University and Edinburgh Napier University said they had found similar types of cladding at student halls.

While social housing buildings must conduct mandatory testing of the material, private sector owners of high-rise buildings, as BuzzFeed News reported last week, will not be forced to do so.

All school buildings taller than four storeys are being analysed to find out what external cladding they use, the government has said.

We're also not sure what the mysterious hole is for to the left of the fake controller port on the North American version. The Classic Edition of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System will be releasing on September 29th for $80 (US).

Other survivors also said they never heard a fire alarm.

Christian Labour MP David Lammy has suggested the real number killed could have been covered up because of fears of riots but ministers insist authorities aren't hiding anything about what happened.

The British government has faced mounting criticism for its response to the disaster, while police say they would consider criminal charges, including manslaughter, over the fire.

"As you know, the Shield has a very different fire safety profile from the Grenfell Tower and similar high-rise towers".

However, he added Jersey Fire and Rescue Service was following advice and guidance issued by the National Fire Chief Council to inspect cladding in all of the Island's high-rise buildings.

They have been hobbled by an inaccurate list from the tenants' management organization in charge of the public housing tower, she said.

The first meeting of a Ministerial Working Group, convened to examine building and fire safety regulatory frameworks, has taken place. Work on identifying the others is complex and ongoing, she said.
