What is the legislation for non-combustible materials on external balconies and how does it apply to my development?

The legislation in England has classified that balconies become a ‘specified attachment’ to the external wall. Each component of the balcony (and wall) must consist of non-combustible components, defined as those achieving A1 or A2 - s1 d0 rating against the European Standard BS EN13501-1. Certain specific components are exempted from achieving Class A1 or A2, these are to smaller components to a build which include gaskets, membranes, spacers and fixings.

Any projects previously given the notice of approval by building control and those started before the 28th February 2019 are exempt, as well as commercial properties including hotels. In Wales the legislation is similar, though buildings started before 13th January 2020 are exempt. In Scotland, legislation regarding the use of non-combustible materials applies to all buildings over 11 m in height. In Northern Ireland there is currently no legislation beyond the Part B regulations, however we have found Building Control and insurance companies are generally following the English legislation as a guideline.

Where can I use non-combustible flooring systems?

With industry leading expertise in external flooring, EnviroBuild have specified non-combustible systems to work in almost all types of build, which can be used in plug on, inset or recess balconies, as well as large terrace areas. The systems have been designed to work in areas of minimal clearance, with the aluminium decking just 21 mm in depth, joists as low as 20 mm and pedestals as low as 25 mm ranging up to 600 mm and beyond if required.  They can also account for drainage slopes with innovative slope correction solutions. The materials used have been designed for a long working life all backed up with comprehensive warranties, plus being engineered to the highest standards of safety.

How fire resistant are the flooring systems?

All of the individual components specified meet at least Class A2 - s1 d0 rating against the European Standard BS EN13501-1, tested by World leading testing organisations. The porcelain automatically qualifies as Class A1. The only untested items are those given specific exemptions under the legislation

What are the benefits of aluminium decking?

• Hyperion aluminium decking systems are A2 - s1 d0 and A2fl s1 fire rated as defined by BS EN 13501-1.

• Aluminium decking cannot absorb moisture, making them completely water resistant.

• Aluminium decking is incredibly low maintenance, requires no treatment and is very easily cleaned.

• Aluminium is stronger than wood and more rigid, which prevents foundational sloping or sagging.

• Aluminium has a high thermal conductivity, allowing it to dissipate heat throughout the material and keep the board cooler underfoot.

• Aluminium decking is resistant to insects, as well as being weather and mould resistant too.

• Aluminium is one of the easiest materials to recycle, making it a particularly sustainable choice. It is also non-toxic, hypoallergenic and does not emit any VOCs (volatile organic compounds).

• The decking can be produced in an assortment of colours and even with a wood-grain pattern.
