For both high-rise and high-risk buildings, the impact of a fire can be catastrophic. In tall buildings and other places where many people live, sleep and work, it is important to pay maximum attention to (fire) safety. Risks need to be minimised in order for (vulnerable) inhabitants to stay safe.
The risks of combustible facade cladding
When combustible materials are used for façade cladding and/or insulation, there is undoubtedly more risk that a fire can extend via the façade, generate more toxic smoke or spread to other floors if it comes into contact with these materials. In addition, these risks can be exacerbated if the combustible materials are not installed in the correct way.
