It is estimated that asbestos fibre has been used to create over 3,000 nearer to 5,000 different asbestos products.
The UK was once the world’s largest manufacturer of asbestos products. 5 – 6 million tonnes of raw asbestos fibre was imported into this country and use to created millions and millions of asbestos-containing products and materials.
These materials were used to build our schools, hospitals, places of work and even our homes. Asbestos materials are still present in millions of buildings throughout the UK.
Knowing what the different types of asbestos-containing materials look like can help reduce your risk of being exposed to asbestos.
That's why we've created this asbestos gallery.
Keep a lookout because we'll be updating this gallery with interesting examples found whilst our Asbestos Surveyors are out surveying properties.
