Reuters – Arconic knowingly supplied flammable panels for use in London tower: emails

By Tom Bergin – LONDON

“Six emails sent by and to an Arconic Inc (ARNC.N) sales manager raise questions about why the company supplied combustible cladding to a distributor for use at Grenfell Tower, despite publicly warning such panels were a fire risk for tall buildings.

The emails, dating from 2014 and seen by Reuters, were between Deborah French, Arconic’s UK sales manager, and executives at the contractors involved in the bidding process for the refurbishment contract at Grenfell Tower in London, where 79 people died in a blaze last week.

When asked about the emails, Arconic said in a statement that it had known the panels would be used at Grenfell Tower but that it was not its role to decide what was or was not compliant with local building regulations.” . . . .”

” . . . The [2016 Arconic] brochure also issued a blunt warning that cladding can be a fire risk.

“When conceiving a building, it is crucial to choose the adapted products in order to avoid the fire to spread to the whole building. Especially when it comes to facades and roofs, the fire can spread extremely rapidly,” the brochure said.

As soon as the building is higher than the fire fighters’ladders, it has to be conceived with an incombustible material. . . . ” (more)

“Harley [of Harley Facades Ltd., the company which installed the panels ] said last week it was “not aware of any link between the fire and the exterior cladding to the tower”.”

SHOCKER

Sky News – Toxic gases released during Grenfell Tower fire may have caused some deaths
Experts say insulation boards on the outside of Grenfell Tower may have filled flats with hydrogen cyanide when they caught fire.

“Insulation boards fitted to the outside of Grenfell Tower gave off highly toxic hydrogen cyanide gas which may have contributed to the deaths of some of the 79 confirmed victims.

Fire toxicity experts have told Sky News the insulation boards installed during a refurbishment of the tower produce the deadly gas when they burn, and their positioning meant every flat could have been filled with enough gas to kill those inside. . . . (more)

The Daily MailAt least 600 tower blocks across the UK are wrapped in similar cladding found on Grenfell Tower death trap

600 tower blocks are wrapped in cladding that could go up in the same way as Grenfell Tower and three have already been found to be ‘combustible’, it was revealed today.
Theresa May has said anyone living in dangerous blocks will be evacuated and revealed up to 100 blocks a day will be tested for potentially lethal cladding.
The Government is yet not going to name the blocks until all residents are told and the taxpayer could face a huge bill for rehousing thousands of residents and refitting blocks. . . . “

We know where the cladding refugees can get housing at NO expense to tax-payers:
