non-acm cladding on the outside of a building


The Government’s £ 1 billion Building Safety Fund was launched following the tragedy at Grenfell Tower.

The aim was – and continues – to provide financial support for building owners concerned about their external cladding.

While the public focus was initially on ACM cladding, it subsequently emerged that there was a range of other cladding materials that could behave in a similar way in a fire.

The term ‘non-ACM cladding’ has therefore come to refer to any unsafe cladding system that is not Aluminium Composite Material cladding.


External cladding provides thermal insulation and weather resistance for buildings.

Non-ACM cladding systems have not had the quite the same bad press as the ACM systems used at the Grenfell Tower.

But in May 2020, housing secretary Robert Jenrick confirmed the new Government fund to replace unsafe non-ACM cladding and stated that:

“This is work that must take place as an absolute priority to keep residents safe and brings total funding for remediation up to *£1.6bn.”

He also confirmed that he:

“…will not accept any excuses from building owners who have yet to take action and those responsible should register for the fund so that they can start the remediation process immediately.”
