Where is asbestos commonly found in industrial and commercial properties?

The HSE has a visual that shows just how widely asbestos was used in industrial properties across the UK, until it was fully banned from use in 1999.

Due to the versatility of asbestos containing materials, as well as their resistance to fire and heat, they were used extensively for a long time within the construction sector. However, due to the impact on human health when breathing in asbestos fibres, which can cause illnesses such as asbestosis, it was fully banned from use. General guidance states that if your property was constructed or renovated before the year 2000 then you should assume it may contain asbestos.

Examples of common products and areas where asbestos can be found, includes - 

  • Lagging - which is used as insulation on pipes and around boilers
  • Sprayed on coatings that can be found on ceilings, walls and beams
  • Asbestos cement products, such as guttering, down pipes and chimney flues
  • Asbestos insulation board (also referred to as AIB)
  • Tiles and flooring

As you can see, asbestos is wide ranging and can be found in many areas across a property. If you have any suspicions at all or would like your mind putting at ease that your commercial or industrial property doesn't house asbestos containing materials, then get in touch with us and we can carry out an asbestos survey before executing an asbestos removal project should asbestos containing materials show up from the survey.
