Fire in Bar at Rouen

#1 by Voltman , Sat Aug 06, 2016 8:44 am

Something we have all known for many years is that polystyrene ceiling tiles are lethal.
They burn readily and drip fire. Knowing this we stopped using them in kitchens and now I don''t think there is a sane person in the UK who has them anywhere in their house.

Why on earth would anyone put them on the ceiling of a basement function room in a bar?

It's because they were cheap and they can.
But I can't really remember where I saw any for sale.
