Where might I come across asbestos in an industrial or commercial property?
Asbestos was used widely across the construction industry until it was fully banned in the UK in 1999 because of the long term health risks it poses to humans. That means if the property you manage or own was constructed or renovated before the year 2000 then you should assume that it could contain asbestos, which may need removing by asbestos removal experts.
Because asbestos was used widely due to its heat resistant and insulation properties, we see asbestos in a lot of places when carrying out an asbestos survey. This page on the HSE website helps to show how wide spread it can be across a property but below are the areas we see it most commonly -
- Ceiling and floor tiles
- Asbestos cement sheets and asbestos cement
- Lagging, which can be found around boilers and pipes
- Sprayed on coatings on walls and beams
- Decorative coatings like Artex
- Asbestos insulation board (AIB) in partitions and fire doors
