Where was asbestos used?
Asbestos was extensively used as a building material in the UK from the 1950s through to the mid-1980s. It was used for a variety of purposes and was ideal for fireproofing and insulation. Any building built before 2000 (houses, factories, offices, schools, hospitals etc) can contain asbestos. Asbestos materials in good condition are safe unless asbestos fibres become airborne, which happens when materials are damaged
Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material most commonly used in insulation. It is usually found in properties built before the year 2000, and as it’s mixed with other materials, it can be difficult to locate asbestos in a building.
