Report finds devastating Bolton fire started by discarded cigarette
The devastating fire at The Cube student accommodation in Bolton last November was a chilling echo of the Grenfell tragedy. Miraculously, all residents survived due to the timely and brave intervention of the Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service (GMFRS).
Last week, the GMFRS published their incident report into the fire. It makes for sobering reading as it describes the spread of the blaze and how the fire was started by a discarded cigarette on a balcony, a sadly common occurrence.

Zurich reveals huge cost of balcony fires
UK insurance behemoth released shocking data that showed the staggering financial and human cost of balcony fires.
With just four balcony fires in 2019 causing £9Million in damage and the vast majority of total balcony fires caused by barbecues or cigarettes, the report demonstrated the urgent need to make balconies safer by replacing combustible materials.

East London development uses AliDeck on access walkway
We always enjoy visiting site to see our products in-situ and it was a real pleasure to head to this development in East London to check out a recently completed walkway.
Working closely with our client to design an attractive and durable walkway, our 30mm Senior Board provided the perfect solution.

Building structures with AliDeck Supa Joist
With the AliDeck System being the most complete aluminium decking system on the market, its versatility is second-to-none.
Our Supa Joist was designed to act as more than just a support beam and with some recent projects taking advantage of all that this heavy-duty joist can provide, we prepared an instructional video to help more people understand its benefits.

Rotten timber walkway underlines need to move to durable solutions
On a recent site visit we encountered a timber-decked walkway in a truly terrible condition, with boards rotten and collapsed throughout.
While this particular walkway will soon be replaced with a safe and durable option, there remain vast amounts of steadily-degrading timber in residential and commercial settings across the UK, all of which should be made safe by replacement with aluminium decking ASAP.
