The Impact of Grenfell on Building Regulations: The Need for Fire Rated Artificial Green Walls

In the world of architecture and design, the tragedy of Grenfell Tower in 2017 was a stark reminder of the critical importance of building safety and regulations. The devastating fire that engulfed the tower not only claimed lives but also led to a significant reassessment of building materials and their fire safety ratings. As a result, it is now paramount to use only fully tested and certified materials, such as Vistafolia’s fire rated artificial green walls, especially in commercial projects where the safety of occupants is of utmost concern.
