Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry Report

Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry Report

The report’s finding that ‘effective compartmentation was lost at an early stage’ as a result of the fire on the outside quickly entering many flats via the windows due to the failure of the glass is not unexpected, nor is the failure of some key fire protection measures inside the tower, similar failures were first highlighted in 2003 in a Government sponsored ASFP report on passive fire protection “Public safety is being impinged by incorrect passive fire protection measures and we feel that a disaster caused by accelerated or unexpected fire spread could follow if no action is taken to improve these standards”.
