Vivalda, the UK’s largest distributor of non-flammable rainscreen facades, has produced a handy guide for contractors and installers concerned about the latest Building Safety Act.

Providing a three minute read for the trade, the single page explainer highlights the key changes proposed by the act, which was instrumental in setting up the new Building Safety Regular last year. The guide also defines some of the key terms used in the act such as The Golden Thread, Duty Holders and High Rise Buildings.

Peter Johnson, founder of Vivalda Group, said: “Over the past five years, we have been committed to improving understanding and spreading best practice regarding cladding within the building sector. The Building Safety Act is a central plank of the UK’s new safety regime, but we were concerned that not enough people working on-site were aware of this change.

“We’ve produced this plain language guide so that everyone within the construction trade could benefit from a basic understanding of the principles of the act. This is important as it will drive many new aspects of safety legislation that will affect us all.”
