We sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Health and Safety

Please don’t pull the Monarflex around the building down or cut holes in it.

This can present safety risks and could result in accidents and falling materials.

Only authorised staff are allowed to make changes to the scaffold and material. Unauthorised persons are not allowed to access or interfere with the scaffold at any time.

If you’d like to request modifications to the Monarflex, please email Rydon’s Resident Liaison Officer (RLO), Michelle Becouarn at [email protected].

Project summary

Render (EWI) – we’re inserting vertical and/or horizontal fire barriers and over-render with a new topcoat to all areas.

Zinc Cladding – we’re installing a horizontal barrier to the ‘shadow gap’ and a new perimeter barrier to the base to balconies and private terraces and a vertical barrier to the window reveal. Ventilation sleeves are also being renewed.

Spandrel Panels between windows will have the fire break behind the panel updated.

Balcony decking on balconies that interacts with the zinc cladding are being replaced with a non-combustible aluminium decking.
