Can asbestos containing materials be found all over a property?

Asbestos containing materials are any materials that contains at least 1% asbestos

Asbestos was used widely across the construction sector for many years in the UK due to the fact it has good insulation properties and is resistant to fire and heat. So it's no surprise that asbestos containing materials can be found across a wide variety of products.

Asbestos containing materials weren't fully banned from use in the UK until 1999 and the HSE states that if your property was built before the year 2000 - 

Presume the building contains asbestos unless you know for sure it doesn't.

Examples of where we commonly find asbestos when carrying out an asbestos survey include -

  • Lagging, which is used as pipe insulation and around boilers
  • Roof tiles and floor tiles
  • Asbestos insulation board (AIB) in partition walls and fire doors
  • Guttering, as well as down pipes
  • Loose fill insulation
  • Asbestos cement sheets
  • Sprayed on coating on beams, ceilings and walls

The above is not all inclusive but does highlight the wide variety of places asbestos containing materials can be found across an industrial or commercial property. The HSE has a great visual showing just how easy it can be to find asbestos across a property, here.
