Are some of the failed cladding materials used on high rise buildings banned in other countries?


From my review of the exterior facade
materials used throughout the world I would say that, I’m of the
understanding that the materials used at Grenfell are limited in their
application in the States and some other countries, meaning that they’d be more
apt to be allowed on shorter buildings. I’m thinking in our code they would be
maybe building under 40 feet, I could probably translate that, what’s that about
12 or 15 meters. Now I am under the impression that what happened in
Grenfell may also have been part of the contributing factors in the United
Arab Emirates, so to say they’re banned is certainly not correct. To say that they
should be limited in application would be correct.
