U.S. Hotel, Stadium May Be Using Same Flammable ‘Cladding’ as Grenfell Tower

Some U.S. buildings, including the Cleveland Browns’ football stadium and the 33-story Baltimore Marriott Waterfront hotel, may be built with the same combustible panels as London’s Grenfell Tower, which was engulfed in a fire that killed 80 people last month. The Associated Press reports the U.S. company Arconic uses Reynobond composite material on these and other buildings in the U.S., giving them a shining, aluminum appearance. Arconic identified these and other buildings in a brochure, but the AP could not independently confirm that the product was used.
