If there's access behind the wall for cabling, I'd be very surprised if a granite contractor can't cut a hole in-situ and hide it with a bezel.

Or is it possible to use a weatherproof enclosure on the outside of the building?

Isn't it by now absolutely piggin obvious that we should not be making buildings out of stuff that burns like petrol?

Any buildings, not just high-rise ones.

I don't think I can respond as I'm in Scotland and Building Regs are a non-UK matter.

Nah, Davey, its London I/Os that get recycled.  They put their brains through a washing machine and they come out the other end with fresh thinking.

Good idea.  I hereby offer my consultation response, namely that there should be a consultation on banning consultations.   In the meantime, I do not intend to dignify the banning combustible insulation products with a consultation response

Seems OK to me as I thought we should all be looking to recycle our old extinguishers Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

So a client has a multi occupied office building and without me being aware prior, has spent thousands having their reception area refurbished with a granite marble effect wall surface. The fire alarm panel is currently behind a plant room door (off of reception), which is locked when building manager leaves but some tenants remain in building (have highlighted this before). So it would have been the ideal chance to install a repeater panel. Now they have refused as installation of a repeater panel now would damage the new wall surface.

Any practical solutions that anyone has had previously? Have considered a few but not what i would consider suitable.

I think they should ban consultations.  Why don't we have a consultation on banning consultations.

Would we need a consultation on having a consultation on banning consultations?  Undecided
