Independent product and process testing has resulted in Britain’s Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and the UK’s Trading Standards department rescinding a request for the suspension of sales of Vitracore G2 in the UK.
While Vitracore G2 was never banned – despite reports wrongly speculating otherwise – the product’s UK distributors, Valcan, responsibly withdrew the G2 product after offshore tests sponsored by a competitor cladding product claimed an anomaly in Vitracore G2’s composition.
Vitracore G2 manufacturer, Fairview Architectural, welcomes the product reinstatement.
However, it is concerned by a process which allowed a competitor manufacturer to call Vitracore G2’s propriety into question, while a non-standard component test singled out Vitracore G2 only for suspension and a full quality assurance review.
Vitracore G2 remains one of the most tested cladding products on the market.
Manufacturer of Vitracore G2 – Fairview – welcomes the fact that extensive independent testing has effectively resulted in the reinstatement of the Vitracore G2 panel in the UK market.
