Fire safety the Kinley way


At Kinley, we know that safety – in all its aspects - is a priority for every responsible landscape designer. And safety from the ravages of fire is most certainly the top priority of all.

How to guard against fire is on everyone’s mind at the moment.  Across the whole built environment, it’s quite rightly under scrutiny as never before. Which is why we’ve been thinking how to make Kinley products even safer. To design and manufacture every item so they give maximum confidence to anyone who uses them.

We’ve been talking to our customers, asking what would give them the assurance they need. And we’ve come up a new system for terraces we believe is a real game changer!

It’s called PREVENTA, and it comprises of new metal pedestals, new metal joists (with metal clips) and a new range of porcelain decking, plus new planters and roof-top furniture.

As well as being beautifully designed, the entire range of PREVENTA products is Class A fire-rated. That’s the highest fire rating possible. It means our products can withstand fire for longer than any other classification. In terms of fire resistance, it just doesn’t get any better.

Post-Grenfell, all building materials must now comply with European Classification (Euroclass) A1 or A2-S1, D0 in accordance with BS EN 13501-1: 2018 + A1: 2009. We’ve designed PREVENTA to exceed these requirements, just to give our customers the sense of total confidence that they’ve made the right choice.

PREVENTA is a fully modular terrace system. It combines height adjustable metal pedestals with aluminium support joists that work seamlessly with high performance porcelain decking. It’s been developed specifically for installing on roof terraces, roof decks and inset balconies.

PREVENTA’s Raaft aluminium support joists are available in three heights - 30, 50 and 80mm - and are simply installed on the easily-adjustable steel pedestals to provide heights to suit a wide range of applications. With their lifetime of 50-year plus, they offer massively increased stability, a more flexible substructure and a faster and easier installation.

PREVENTA’s porcelain decking comes in a wide choice of colours and sizes that allow landscape designers to create free-flowing designs and beautiful, practical spaces. Porcelain offers the perfect blend of style, with non-combustibility, excellent slip resistance and tremendous durability - ideal for residential, commercial and high-traffic areas.

And PREVENTA’s planters and support trays– all non-combustible too, of course – come in a wide range of styles and attractive finishes that introduce a natural element to a roof garden, balcony or traditional garden.

We totally understand landscapers’ reputations rest on high quality work that’s safe in every way for their clients. Take it from us, the PREVENTA system is the ultimate non-combustible solution to your design challenges.
