17 February 2021 TRADA Live Web Training on Fire Performance of Timber Cladding Systems

Learn about the fire performance of timber cladding systems

Producing accurate and appropriate specifications for fire safety critical components like cladding has been brought sharply into focus following Grenfell.

  • What is involved in testing and approving cladding systems?
  • How are the materials / products tested and to what standards?
  • How do you know if what has been tested covers the application in question?
  • What is involved in making sure that all the necessary parts of the supply chain are covered by this process?

In the next Learn with TRADA Live session, Warringtonfire's Dr Janet Murrell and Dr Mostafa Jafarian will answer these questions, summarise how to specify cladding systems correctly, and provide guidance for product suppliers on how to obtain all the necessary evidence and approvals.
