Title: How Grenfell Fire victims could be avoided in the Future -Super Great Idea !!!
Post by: profound on 08/07/2017 18:25:15

Hey folks I was bulking by a builders site and then a children playpark which has a metallic pipe.Kids climb to the top via ladders ,go into the pipe and then slide down threw it and get a cheap thrill.

I have a simple solution.amazing solution you just need a long flexible pipe/hose..the kind kids use for fun or builders use to throw stuff away from high building.all people have to do is slide down this angled flexible pipe.very simple.very cheap.very effective.

The pipe which can also be of fireproof  metal is laid on the outside in a zig zag pattern.The pipe passes by every window and a simple hatch cover is lifted and the person simply slides down into the pipe and slides downwards in a zig zag way and is automatically slowed due to the incline of each ZIG and ZAG.

I wish i could draw this for you.

Another way to avoid tragedies like Grenfell Towers would be to prosecute those responsible for not using flame retardant cladding as murderers.

I agree money/greed was the cause of using the crap cladding.5000?

Yes.My idea is to either have it wrapped round the building with inlet points at every flats main window or a flattened spiral.
