ROCKWOOL has welcomed Secretary of State James Brokenshire’s confirmation of plans to ban combustible materials from new high-rise residential buildings, as well as hospitals, residential care premises and student accommodation above 18 metres.

The ban will not be applied retroactively to existing buildings but when the facades of such buildings are refurbished, they will not be able to use combustible cladding or insulation.

This announcement is a big step forward for public safety following the tragedy of Grenfell Tower. ROCKWOOL has long advocated for these changes and commends the UK government for taking this action, believing public safety demands regulatory clarity and simplicity.

We encourage the government to extend these measures further and include all high risk buildings to ensure the safety of people living, working, studying and recovering in hospitals, residential care premises, student accommodation and schools.
