Silvano Geranio, Founding Director of Prestige Homeseeker Park & Leisure Homes, said: “I am literally over the moon with this latest new product design which will elevate us to a whole new level.”

Statement regarding fire compliance of wall and roof cladding materials

Statement regarding fire compliance of wall and roof cladding materials

In light of recent tragic events relating to the Grenfell Tower, we at Prestige Homeseeker feel it necessary to make a statement reassuring our customers that all wall and roof claddings used within our standard ranges are fully compliant with the applicable fire regulations, as set out in BS:3632:2015, the British Standard for residential park homes to which our homes are manufactured.

Within this standard it is stated that materials used for the external cladding of walls should have surfaces which have a minimum (fire) rating of Class 3 in accordance with BS 476-7:1997 (British Standard) or Euro Class D in accordance with BS EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009 (European standard), where the lower the number/letter translates as the better the performance. These are essentially spread of flame tests which evaluate how a given material reacts to fire.

Below is a table listing our current standard external wall cladding types and respective fire classification of each. As it can be seen, all are either equal to or exceed the minimum required classification:

Cladding Type British Classification Equivalent European Classification
BS 476-7: 1997 BS EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009
Canexel (Ridgewood, Ultraplank, Ced-R-Vue) Class 3 Class D
Cedar Class 3 Class D
Thermawood Class 3 Class D
Softwood Stained Class 3 Class D
Artefoam Class 2 Class D
Stipple on Magnesium Oxide Substrate Limited combustibility

(exceeds class 0)

Class A2

With regards to internal claddings to walls and ceilings, BS:3632:2015 states that materials used must have surfaces which are, in accordance with BS 476-7:1997, not less than Class 3, or at least Euro Class D in line with BS EN 13823:2010+A1:2014 and BS EN ISO 11925-2:2010. Again, all claddings used can be seen to be equivalent to or above this standard in the following table:

Cladding Type British Classification Equivalent European Classification
BS 476-7:1997 BS EN 13823:2010+A1:2014
BS EN ISO 11925-2:2010
Wallpaper on Plasterboard 0 B
Plasterboard Painted Limited Combustibility A2
MDF Painted 3 D
Rough Sawn Timber 3 D
Laminate 1 C
Tiled Non-combustible A1
Nuance Aquapanel 3 D
Vinyl Wrapped MDF 3 D
Smart Panel Painted 3 D

Also stipulated in BS:3632:2015 is the requirement for roof cladding materials to have a surface of fire resistance which is not less than classification “AC,” as defined in BS 476-3:2004, or classification Broof (t4) as defined in BS EN 13501-5:2004+A1:2009. Shown below are current roof covering options available and respective fire resistance classifications for each, once again both of which can be seen to meet current standards:

Cladding Type British Classification Equivalent European Classification
BS 476-3:2004 BS EN 13501-5:2004+A1:2009
Metrotile Sheet Tile AA Broof (t4)
Firestone Rubberguard FR Membrane AA Broof (t4)

We hope that this helps to clarify any queries relating to this important matter and welcome any further questions you may have on telephone number 01933 354000.
