Asbestos Testing

One of the dedicated surveyors at R B Asbestos can attend your site to sample materials for asbestos analysis, if you suspect that one of your properties may contain asbestos. We examine asbestos that is regularly found in a wide selection of sample materials, including fibre cement, artex and floor tiles.

To ensure the very highest standards of testing and impartiality, R B Asbestos send all client samples to a UKAS accredited laboratory – turnaround times are often within 24 hours.

R B Asbestos can then talk you through the analysis results and provide the advice needed to ensure your business remains compliant with asbestos regulations.

Should you require air testing or air monitoring to ensure your working environment is safe, R B Asbestos can also arrange this through a UKAS laboratory.
