Re: Grenfell Tower fire, Aluminium Composite Material - Is this a fire hazard?

So is Dibond and other makes fire safe?

We could boast of its quality and longevity and other aspects but this leaves me a little shaky in recommending to clients

Re: Grenfell Tower fire, Aluminium Composite Material - Is this a fire hazard?

So its the insulation in between the composite board

I did wonder because they said it was for insulation purposes why it was fitted and you would not think straight away of raynobond or dibond being used in such a way. It would be more of a cosmetic finish to the insulating core

Keeping Warm this Winter while working?

Let's hope its not going to be another deep freeze in the UK (or elsewhere) this winter. Its about wearing the right clothing and heating where-ever you work Of course inevitably we do have to work outside Has anyone found novel ways of keeping warm aside from setting light to the workshop? (hot)
