February 2018 Update
On 30th January we received a communication from Celotex, announcing a compliance issue with their declared full system fire performance testing for rainscreen cladding that features their RS5000 product.
Celotex have been conducting a detailed review of the way RS5000 was tested and marketed and determined that there were differences between the system as tested for BS 8414:2 and the description of that system in the report of the test.
We understand that Celotex are evaluating whether there are any safety issues arising from these differences and are arranging further testing to clarify the results.
If you have any queries relating to the above please contact the dedicated Celotex hotline: 0330 159 5271
