A note about cladding on our council low rise buildings

In our low rise properties with cladding, we are not carrying out invasive inspections. We do not have high rise affordable homes. 

Further information about cladding materials

We use Wetherby’s EpsiTherm (EPS) for the low rise cladding and, in common with all organic materials, EPS is combustible.

If installed correctly, it will not be an undue fire hazard

However, provided it is specified and installed correctly, in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and BS 6203 guidance, it will not present any undue fire hazard.

We have followed recommended practice

The standard recommends that for all applications, the material should be protected by either a laminated facing layer, or fully enclosed by the form of construction, which is the case with our system.
