All 75 high-rises tested in wake of Grenfell tragedy fail fire safety standards

Grenfell fire Photo: Brandon Butterworth under CC4.0 The government has said cladding on 75 buildings in 26 council areas had now failed fire safety tests every single panel tested so far. And the US firm that supplied cladding used on London s Grenfell Tower says it has ended global sales of the product for use in high-rise blocks. Arconic said it was discontinuing sales of Reynobond PE for tower blocks due to issues identified by the fire, which is feared to have killed at least 79.

Fire safety tests are taking place on the fire resistance of cladding on up to 600 buildings following the Grenfell Tower fire in north Kensington on 14 June. The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) said all buildings examined so far had failed the test. Councils were told to prioritise buildings they had most concern over. Communities secretary, Sajid Javid, has said all hospitals and schools had also been asked to carry out immediate checks . The original article was published on our sister site, SHP Online.

Theresa May calls for major national investigation into use of cladding

The use of non-flame retardant cladding on tower blocks will be part of a major national investigation possibly attached to the Grenfell Tower fire inquiry reports have claimed. Prime minister Theresa May made the comments after the cabinet was informed by Communities secretary Sajid Javid that the number of towers which had failed fire safety tests on cladding was now 95 blocks all of those tested so far. The study of cladding has taken place across 32 local authority areas, and as a result of the findings and other fears, hospitals and schools may now also assess their cladding where concerns have arisen, Javid said.

Although May has not detailed the precise scope of the national investigation into cladding, it is believed that the study could form a second phase to the judge-led Grenfell Tower inquiry. A spokesperson for the prime minister said it was clear that everybody is concerned about this and everybody wants to establish what went wrong.

Number of high-rises failing fire safety tests grows

Grenfell fire Tests are taking place on the fire resistance of cladding on up to 600 buildings following the Grenfell Tower fire in North Kensington on 14 June. The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) said all buildings examined so far had failed the test. Most concern Councils were told to prioritise buildings they had most concern over.

Not all the buildings affected have so far been named but a list from the DCLG identifies 14 of the areas: 1. Camden five buildings 2. Brent one 3. Barnet three 4. Hounslow one 5. Islington one 6. Lambeth one 7. Wandsworth two 8. Manchester four 9.

Norwich one 10. Plymouth three 11. Portsmouth two 12. Doncaster one 13. Sunderland five 14. Stockton-on-Tees three Separately, cladding is to be removed from nine tower blocks in Salford, while Bootle said two buildings had cladding that failed tests. The update came as Camden Council said it had told about 200 residents still refusing to vacate four of its tower blocks on the Chalcots estate that they must leave to allow improvement works to go ahead. The majority of the residents of the four buildings were evacuated on Friday night. The cladding on the buildings in the Chalcots estate is similar to Grenfell Tower where the fire is feared to have killed 79 people.

Chalcots was refurbished between 2006 and 2009 by the firm, Rydon; the same firm that oversaw work at Grenfell Tower in 2015-16. The government testing programme began on 21 June with the local authorities asked to submit cladding for examination. Patrols The Local Government Association (LGA) said some councils have introduced 24-hour warden patrols to mitigate the risk before cladding is removed. It said in a statement: Where cladding fails the test, this will not necessarily mean moving residents from tower blocks. In Camden, the decision to evacuate was based on fire inspectors concerns about a combination of other fire hazards together with the cladding. The LGA said it was advising councils still waiting for results of tests to prepare contingency plans so they can take any measures needed quickly . Immediate testing Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that the Grenfell Tower fire started in a Hotpoint fridge freezer within a flat on the fourth floor; the government has ordered immediate testing of the appliance. Police said the fire had not been started deliberately and the speed with which the fire spread was unexpected . Anyone who has a white Hotpoint fridge freezer model number FF175BP or graphite fridge freezer model number FF175BG have been advised to register their appliance with the manufacturer to receive any updates.

Video Analytics: Oversold and underutilised but could key to preventing terror attack

Panel of video surveillance manufacturers agree that video analytics has yet to reach its full potential. Atul Rajput, Axis Communications, Stephen Jones, Seagate, Jonathan Rickard, Panasonic, and Andy Coles, Hikvision took part in a lively debate at IFSEC International 2017 about the trends shaping video surveillance over the next few years. Video analytics raises Far too many false alarms, not really performing said Jonathan Rickard but that is going to change as machine learning and processing power in cameras is increasing.

Video analytics can already identify unusual behaviour, if someone in a crowd who is drunk, or walking in an usual way. Analytics can take away the current expectation that a single security guard can monitor 150 cameras, said Rickard. A guard can see one or two cameras maximum. Even if you them screen with 50 cameras, they won t be able to do it. Machine learning is needed to monitor all cameras and then present anything usual to the security guard. ‘The future of video surveillance’ just starting at Security Management Theatre in @IFSEC pic.twitter.com/mrBYDJzyKg IFSEC Global Editor (@ifsecglobal) June 20, 2017 The potential of real-time analytics Andy Coles pointed out that Artificial intelligence is already built into many surveillance products already. Until now analytics have been used to review an incident after it happens. Imagine intelligent analytics that can interrogate behaviour before it happens. That s where security is going. Deep learning will make big impact in the years ahead.

Forensic searches for video analytics are good, but we need to now react in real time. Takes a lot of processing power and technology said Stephen Jones. Preventing terror attacks In many incidents such as the recent Manchester Arena bombing, terrorists conduct a reconnaissance before the bombing. How could video analytics have presented these attacks, asked an audience member. If know suspect was on terror list and you could get your VMS platform suppliers for government and businesses joined up, yes you could spot that. said Andy Coles. The technology is there, but as everyone is using disparate systems you cant do anything like that. In connecting systems Simplicity is key Atul Rajput added. The more complicated systems are the more mistakes can be made on installation.
