What are the common areas where I could find asbestos in my industrial property?
Asbestos containing materials weren't fully banned from use until 1999 in the UK, so if your property in Altrincham was built or renovated before that, then you should assume that it could harbour asbestos.
Asbestos was used extensively across the UK because of its fire resistant and insulating properties but was banned from use because of the harm that asbestos fibres can pose to human life. To read more about this click here.
Some of the common areas where we find asbestos containing materials around properties include -
- Asbestos cement, which can be found on chimney flues, guttering, downpipes and panels.
- Lagging, which was commonly used as insulation on boilers and pipes.
- Loose fill insulation.
- Asbestos insulation board (AIB), commonly used on partition walls, ceiling tiles and as panels in fire doors.
This is only a few examples because asbestos was used widely across the construction industry for many years. For more details on where you might find asbestos click here.
