Where is Asbestos found?

Where is asbestos found?

It is not always easy to tell whether a product contains asbestos as modern asbestos-free materials often look similar – remember it is usually older products that contain asbestos.  Common places where asbestos could be found include:

  • Asbestos cement – cement roofs, wall cladding, downpipes and gutters, cement flues.
  • Floor tiles, textiles and composites – textiles in fuse boxes, old fire blankets, heat resistant gloves.  Composites can be toilet cisterns/seats and bath panels, window sills, bath panels.
  • Textured and sprayed coatings
  • Roofing felt
  • Asbestos Insulating Board (AIB) – commonly used as fireproofing material and also partition walls, fireproofing panels in fire doors, lift shaft linings, ceiling tiles, soffits, panels below windows.
  • Lagging and insulation – in or on heating systems such as round boilers, tanks or calorifiers and around pipework.
  • Loose fill asbestos – in between cavity walls, under floorboards and in loft spaces.
