Since 2017, over 2000 residential buildings have been identified as high risk, with some form of dangerous cladding. The Building Safety crisis is one of the biggest challenges our industry has faced in many years, but it also presents us with a vital opportunity to vastly improve the quality, safety and longevity of our built environment now and for future generations.
The importance of specifying, designing and installing safe, robust replacement cladding that complies with the new building regulation standards is now paramount, but understanding the regulations for fire performance can seem complicated.
Ash & Lacy have been involved in the manufacture and supply of high quality, affordable exterior cladding and rainscreen cladding systems for over 30 years.
All Ash & Lacy rainscreen cladding and support systems are fire rating class 0 and are industry leading products. Our cladding systems are all rated minimum A2,s1-d0, according to BS EN 13501-1:2018, certified by recognised third party organisations. As suppliers of Class 0 Fire Rating Cladding, we are steadfast in our safety-first approach and work closely with our clients.
Ash & Lacy products and systems are regularly tested by independent UKAS accredited organisations such as the Centre for Window & Cladding Technology (CWCT) and Exova Warringtonfire and Lucideon, and accredited by globally recognised bodies such as the British Board of Agrement.
The importance of the cladding refurbishment and replacement on unsafe high-rise residential buildings cannot be understated.
