FIRE PROOF CURTAIN WALLING
Fire resistant screens and curtain walling is essential for any environment where there could be a potential risk of fire exposure.
The EWS1 is a form introduced as part of a new External Wall Fire Review process valuing high-rise buildings. The EWS1 form was introduced in December 2019 in response to the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017. The form designates whether the external wall of a building, or attachments to the external wall such as cladding, are at low risk for fire.
RAINSCREEN CURTAIN WALLING
Curtain walling is an external non-structural building envelope. Often fabricated using aluminum systems, it is light weight and easy to transport and install. Curtain walling usually features large expanses of glass. This allows natural light to penetrate deep into a building to create a better working environment

CERTIFICATION & INSPECTIONS
An industry-wide form has been released to assist in the assessment and valuation of flats in multi-storey buildings, or where specific fire safety concerns exist. This form has been endorsed by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, UK Finance and the Building Societies Association and is known as the External Wall Fire Review form (EWS1).
The external wall system is made up of the outside wall of a residential building, including cladding, insulation, fire break systems, etc. The EWS1 form checks these for safety, if that is required.
