How to Identify Asbestos Fencing.

It can be difficult to tell whether your fence has materials containing asbestos in it just by looking at it. As a general rule, if your fence was installed;

  • Before the mid 1980s, it is highly likely that it would have materials containing asbestos.
  • Between the mid 1980s and 1990, it is likely that it may have materials containing asbestos.
  • After 1990, it is highly unlikely it would have materials containing asbestos.
  • If you are not sure that a material contains asbestos, play it safe and assume that it does. 

Other visual ways to guide in identifying asbestos fencing are;


 
Diamond washers,bolts and nuts on asbestos joins. 
   

Capping the same material as the sheets.

or sheets that look like this.



Exposed hair-like fibers.
