A must attend event for architects, engineers,
builders and designers.
In 2014 Australia experienced a significant external building façade fire on a high rise building in Melbourne. Around the world we continue to see issue of combustible external facades. These fires have raised questions on the compliance of walls and the risks they present with a variety of linings and attachments to the wall being combustible in nature.
Whist a number of recent fires relate to the use of polyethylene core metal composite panels, the compliance and use of combustible materials on walls is not exclusive to metal composite panels. Walls that include protective attachments to the primary building element such as those for fire resistance, weatherproofing, insulation and acoustics are typically combustible products with a low flammability. In addition, a variety of fixing methods including direct fix, mechanical and casting have presented compliance questions.
