SAVE fires broadside at Hodder's tower for Giggs and Neville


Geoff Williams30 January, 2018 12:45 pm Interesting to hear about the comments of Historic England and their apparent lack of desire to protect historic buildings from fire in respect to cabling issues. They often ignore the danger of fire in high rise structures, that is always imminent, although we all like to think that fire is a rare occurrence. Fighting fire in congested City locations and particularly fighting fires internally above 7 floors is a distinct and highly dangerous hazard. Maintenance of the electrical supply is paramount. Experts in Germany maintain that up to 40% of fires Worldwide have an electrical cable origin. The use of a 2 hour fire rated cable, preferably MICC, should be mandatory. Another fact generally ignored. Unsuitable or offensive? Report this comment
