This is a normal post But doesn't removing the aluminium stops the chimney effect?
with out the aluminium "tubes" running up the entire height of the building the fire doesn't spread.

This is a normal post Unfortunately no - The insulation here is able to sustain a fire on it's own
Hence the rockwool comments above.

If anything, because you can light the insulation without an accelerant (that's not the case with the Al, it needs a higher temp) they've made the problem worse by doing this

This is a normal post There was somebody on the telly box the other night testing samples with a lighter.
burned very easily.
Can't believe this was passed as safe to slap onto the side of a building.

Since seeing the insulation from Grenfell land on my balcony and car still burning ....

This is a normal post Nope. And they're only removing the OUTER layer of aluminium.
This can only bode well...
