Fire risk: Combustible cladding to be removed from 13 state schools

Flammable cladding will be stripped from 13 government schools in Victoria after being found in a statewide building audit spurred by a major fire at a Docklands tower in 2014.

Work to remove the cladding is scheduled to take place between May and September this year.

Do you need assistance with fire testing....we can help?

AWTA Product Testing can assist to ensure you carry out the correct fire test on building materials, with a wide range of fire tests to Australian Building Code Deemed-to-Satisfy Requirements.

It is important to note that there is no one test applicable for any particular material type. Tests are end use and location specific and it is quite possible that the same material may require more than one test, or face different requirements.  

Selection of the appropriate test can be complex and reference to the Australian National Construction Code (NCC) is crucial.
