Update on Ampthill Estate fire safety tests

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council, said: “We’ve today heard back from the Building Research Establishment on panels taken from blocks on Ampthill estate. The BRE inspection confirmed that they are not aluminium composite panels .The panels are made of solid aluminium. The BRE did not therefore feel the panels required a full test.

“We can also confirm the insulation behind the panels is Rockwool and the gaps between the insulation and the windows have had fire stopping work done to them and this has been signed off by the London Fire Brigade.

“Our ongoing programme of enhanced fire safety checks will include blocks on Ampthill Estate along with the rest of our high rise towers.”
