Ronacrete has produced a new brochure to promote its range of Section 12 registered products for underground railway stations.
Following the Kings Cross fire in 1987 and the Fennell Enquiry into that event, new legislation was enacted in Section 12 of the Fire Precaution Act 1971, namely The Fire Precautions (Sub-Surface Railway Stations) Regulations 1989. Subsequently, the legislation was developed further to become The Fire Precautions (Sub-surface Railway Stations) (England) Regulations 2009. One of the ways London Underground complies with this legislation is to control the use of materials entering below ground stations and locations. This is done by ensuring that materials comply with LU Standard 1-085 ‘Fire Safety Performance of Materials’.
Ronacrete currently holds 23 London Underground Product Registration Certificates for screed, render, concrete repair, bedding mortar and floor sealing products that comply with LU Standard 1-085 “Fire Safety Performance of Materials'’.
