Asbestos Products - Asbestos Cement
Asbestos was added to many cement products in order to improve their performance and life span. When asbestos is added to cement, the product will be more durable allowing for thinner products to be produced that will also be more resistant to temperature change.
Some of the more common asbestos cement products that we are familiar with include asbestos cement sheets and asbestos cement pipes.
Asbestos cement products that are less common include acoustic cement products, jointing cement, fireproof cement and waterproof cement.
Asbestos cement is a widespread building material in the UK. We find it in both residential properties, as internal wall panels, guttering, garages, etc and commercial properties in the form of ceiling panels, internal gutters, permanent shuttering, etc.
If the asbestos cement is in good condition and undamaged, it is generally regarded as a low risk material and may be managed in-situ.
However, if the cement is deteriorating or damaged, we recommend asbestos sampling by our qualified surveyors. We will be able to tell you whether or not the cement contains asbestos fibres, and also assess the risk to you and your family or staff. In addition, we will give you free advice on how to safely manage, repair or remove the product.
