Forticrete’s Hardrow Slates Provide 18th Century Charm for Development
13.06.17Forticrete’s Hardrow Slates Provide 18th Century Charm for Development Highly durable Hardrow slates from Forticrete have been specified by Taylor Wimpey Homes (East Midlands) for its stunning collection of one, three, four and five-bedroom properties in the historic town of Stamford. With Stamford steeped in historic charm, built around picturesque 17th and 18th century buildings which offer an attractive setting, Taylor specified Forticrete’s Hardrow slates in diminishing courses in Barley for an authentic traditional appearance. Kevin Bendall, Design and Planning Executive at Taylor Wimpey Homes (East Midlands), commented: “It was clear that Forticrete’s Hardrow slates provided the ideal solution. The Barley colour was chosen as it ensured the stimulating finish both ourselves and the local vernacular required.” Suitable for use in regions where a natural stone slate appearance is required, Forticrete’s Hardrow roof slates are manufactured with a slight variation in dimensional tolerance, adding to the product's character when laid. The range, which is extremely durable and mellows with age, can be laid in either random widths or diminishing courses for an authentic traditional appearance. The slates are available in a variety of sizes, for both roofing and vertical cladding. The sizes range from 457mm x 305mm (min. pitch 25o), right up to the imposing 610mm x 457mm, which can be laid confidently at pitches as low as 17.5o, creating a bold appearance.

Government Urged to End Health and Safety Deregulation Following Grenfell Tower Blaze
21.06.17Government Urged to End Health and Safety Deregulation Following Grenfell Tower Blaze The UK Government has been urged to scrap its approach to deregulation of health and safety legislation in the light of the Grenfell Tower blaze. In an open letter to Prime Minister Theresa May, more than 70 leading organisations and figures from the UK’s safety and health profession have jointly called for a political sea change in attitude towards health and safety regulation and fire risk management following the tragedy. The collective has also pressed the Government to complete its review of Part B of the Building Regulations 2010 – the regulations which cover fire safety within and around buildings in England – as a matter of urgency, and to include a focus on improved safety in the forthcoming Parliament. The letter is signed by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), Park Health & Safety, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and the British Safety Council. The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH), Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA), International Institute of Risk & Safety Management (IIRSM), National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH), Trades Union Congress (TUC) and Unite the union have also given it their backing, alongside senior health and safety professionals. ‘Preventable risk’ “We believe it is totally unacceptable for residents, members of the public and our emergency services to be exposed to this level of preventable risk in modern-day Britain,” the letter states. “At this crucial time of national reflection and sorrow, we urge all politicians to re-emphasise the need for effective health and safety regulation and competent fire risk management. These are fundamental to saving lives and sustaining our communities. “We believe it is vital that this disaster marks a turning point for improved fire safety awareness and wider appreciation that good health and safety is an investment, not a cost.” Calling on the UK Government to complete its review of Part B of The Building Regulations 2010, the signatories add: “Together, we offer our organisations’ support in undertaking the review – we all have valuable links to experts in this area who can advise on best regulatory outcomes. In the meantime, we welcome the Government’s commitment to act and to implement the interim findings of the forthcoming public in...
