Arconic says it is ending sales of Reynobond PE panels

Arconic says it is ending sales of Reynobond PE panels”

She said officials had been concerned about this particular building since 2010, but chose to act now after seeing how fire could spread rapidly via a flammable cladding or facade.

Javid also confirmed that cladding from 75 high-rise buildings in 26 local authorities had failed fire safety tests conducted by the BRE on behalf of the government.

Arconic said in a statement that Reynobond PE would no longer be sold for use in high-rise buildings.

Authorities in Britain, meanwhile, continued to test samples of building materials for flammability.

The aluminum composite panels have been used for decades to help insulate buildings and improve their appearance, but the Grenfell tragedy has prompted hard questions about their regulation.

Describing the Grenfell Tower fire as "a catastrophic failure", he announced the formation of an independent expert advisory panel to advise the Government on any immediate steps that need to be taken on fire safety.

The loss of lives, injuries and destruction following the Grenfell Tower fire are devastating, and our deepest condolences are with everyone affected by this tragedy. Communities and Local Government Secretary Sajid Javid said every building tested so far had failed.

At an inquest into four victims of the June 14 inferno at Grenfell Tower, which killed at least 79 people, Westminster Coroner's Court officer Eric Sword said Paulous' preliminary cause of death was "inhalation of fire fumes".

He was found dead on the 13th floor of the building.

Isaac, who lived with his family on the apartment tower's 18th floor, perished as his family tried to escape the blaze.

A statement from his family paid tribute to their "kind, energetic, generous little boy".

"It can't really be explained in enough detail how complex an investigation this is in terms of identification and in terms of recovery of bodies on a unsafe site that my team are not allowed to enter because the building is being shored up", Westminster coroner Fiona Wilcox told the court. Work on identifying the others is complex and ongoing, she said.
