Grenfell: Arconic defends response to 2009 Bucharest cladding fire
Arconic took no action following a 2009 cladding fire in a Bucharest building because there was no injury, the Grenfell Tower Inquiry has heard.
The UK sales manager for Arconic, the firm that supplied the Reynobond ACM 55 PE cladding used on Grenfell Tower, did not discuss the combustibility of the products she was marketing with clients, the Grenfell Tower Inquiry has heard.
A manager at Kingspan, which manufactured the Kooltherm K15 insulation used on Grenfell Tower, has admitted that dismissing a contractor’s concerns about the material’s suitability for use in buildings above 18m with an expletive in an internal email was “totally unprofessional”.
