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 public buildings etc) can contain asbestos. Asbestos materials that are in a good condition are safe unless asbestos fibres become airborne, which happens when materials are damaged.
