 London fire: What cladding should we use in high-rise building?

According to BBC news’ lastest report, at least 79 people are missing and presumed dead after a huge fire engulfed a west London tower block. It is not yet known what caused the fire.

The tower, built in the 1970s and renovated several times, contains 120 homes. It is feared many are trapped in the building as the fire occurred during sleep time. Over 200 fire-fighters battled the flames over night and well into the next day. 

The fire consumed the building from the second floor up, according to the London Fire Brigade. The exterior was burnt black as flames stripped the new insulating cladding. The incident is “completed unprecedented,” said Dany Cotton, the first female Commissioner of London Fire Brigade.

While investigations into the cause and progress of the fire have yet to begin, questions are being asked about the nature of cladding used to improve the thermal insulation value and appearance of the building. Some experts consider the aluminum construction building ,which adopt the flammable materials is one of the reason of the fire broke. Please kindly check the structure of aluminum composite panel:

ACP comprises 0.1 to 0.6mm colored aluminum sheets with a Polyethylene core


Experts said Wednesday that their focus was on the building's exterior cladding, which is supposed to be fireproof but which witnesses said had burned like paper, quickly transmitting the fire from unit to unit and from floor to floor. From the structure of the ACP ( aluminum composite panel ) , the inner plastic structure ,we can familiar with why it will burn and spread the fire so quickly.

Fire safety is always important in building construction specially in high-rise building. To reach high fireproof requirement, the materials used in construction need to be non-combustible, so it could be fire barriers to stop the fire spreading. In that case, it can get more time for the people to fee as well as firefighter to rescue.
