Where can Asbestos be found?

Asbestos can be found in almost any building material - it's use was widespread from the 1930’s through to 1999.

Typical locations where Absestos can be found are:

  • Asbestos cement products
  • Textured coatings
  • Floor tiles, textiles and composites
  • Sprayed coatings on ceilings, walls and beams/columns
  • Asbestos insulating board
  • Lagging
  • Loose asbestos in ceiling or floor cavity

The HSE Website gives a useful schematic view of the possible locations of asbestos in buildings. It is by no means an exhaustive list but it does give a good background to the typical locations it may be found.
