A2 Fire Rated
10-Year No Fade

Due to recent changes in building regulations, many housing associations are faced with challenges surrounding timber cladding replacement. High-rise dwellings now require fire rating on all external wall materials of A1 or A2 classification. Timber and other cladding less than A2 present a fire risk. Here are some recent wood finish projects which we have supplied to ensure buildings meet current regulations.
Timber Balustrade and Cladding Replacement
Vulcan aluminium Screen Bar System in ‘Rosewood’ finish provided a like-for-like timber replacement with A2 fire rating. This project eliminated the risk of fire whilst giving the property a modern low maintenance finish. The residents are impressed with the system as the existing timber had greyed and weathered unevenly in very few years.
