The prevalence of asbestos in the UK

Asbestos was commonly used across the construction sector in the UK because of its insulation and fire-resistant properties.

Approximately 1.5 million buildings, predominantly those built or renovated before the year 2000, are estimated to contain some form of asbestos. The management of the asbestos in industrial and commercial properties may fall on the landlord, property owner or business residing in the building. The HSE has more information on this here and here.

Some of the common areas we find asbestos containing materials are -

  • Lagging around boilers and pipes
  • Sprayed-on coatings
  • Floor and roof tiles
  • Asbestos cement in guttering and chimney flues
  • Insulation boards and loose fill insulation
  • Window frames
  • Fire door panels

The HSE has a comprehensive graphic that provides a great visual of the widespread presence of asbestos within industrial properties.
