FirstEnergy Stadium, home of NFL American football franchise the Cleveland Browns, may have been made using material that it is believed was responsible for last month’s Grenfell Tower disaster in London, according to the Associated Press news agency.
The report claims that aluminium panels made of Reynobond composite material with a polyethylene core may have been used at the stadium, an Alaskan high school, and a Baltimore hotel.
The panels were fitted in the 24-story Grenfell Tower apartment block in London, which last month suffered a devastating fire that killed at least 80 people. The panels are not recommended for buildings above 40 feet due to their combustible nature.
It has not been confirmed whether or not the panels have been used at FirstEnergy Stadium, with building records likely to have been discarded a long time ago.
FirstEnergy Stadium opened in 1999 and underwent renovation work in 2014.
