Interesting Asbestos Find In Herefordshire

Asbestos Textile Pads, Hereford
Asbestos Textile Pads, Hereford

One of our lead asbestos surveyors was called to undertake a refurbishment survey at a site in Hereford this week and found something interesting.

On the second floor of a (circa 1960’s) unit, she discovered a timber suspended floor over a concrete floor slab.  The timber floor was sat on timber batons and fastened to the concrete with metal brackets sat upon asbestos textile pads.  Interestingly, this woven asbestos has tested positive for both Chrysotile (white) and Amosite (brown) fibres.
