Frequently Asked Questions
01. What Gauge are the Asbestos Bags?
Only poly sheeting is categorised in “Gauge” which must be over 1000g for the Asbestos Industry.
Asbestos removal bags must be UN certified and are classified according to the weight the bags would hold. This ranges from 10Kg bags which are cheaper, 20KG bags up to the heaviest duty Asbestos waste Bags at 30KG. It is important not to overfill the bags otherwise they could split. 30kg bags as they are less likely to split and expose dangerous asbestos fibres.
02. Are there different Asbestos Bags available?
Asbestos removal bags are classified based on the weight of asbestos waste that they can carry. The cheapest bags can only carry 10kg & the heaviest duty bags 30kg. The bags are 900 x 1200 in size however the thickness is based on the weight they have been designed to carry. Ie 30Kg will be thicker than a 20kg of a 10kg bag.
It is important to take care of what KG bag you are actually buying. Cheap asbestos bags will likely be low KG bags & will easily split.
It is advisable to use the heaviest duty 30kg asbestos bags as they are less likely to split from overloading and therefore less likely to expose you to dangerous asbestos fibres.
Asbestos removal bags also come in 2 different colours Red & Clear Asbestos bags. The red bag is slightly smaller than the clear bag. All waste needs to be double-bagged. The waste is placed in the red bag and then this should be placed in the clear bag along with any PPE and salad with tape.
03. What bags should I use for Asbestos Waste?
Only the correct UN Certified Asbestos bags legislated for use in the UK with full asbestos coding visible should be used. The Asbestos disposal bags come as both red and clear waste bags, with the red bag slightly small than the clear bag. The asbestos waste needs to be placed in the red bag being careful not to damage or break up the asbestos & then sealed. Do not overfill the bag, leave enough space to be able to seal with tape. You will then need to place the red bag and your PPE into the clear bag and seal properly again
N.B Always wear the correct Asbestos PPE when handling asbestos.

Coveralls range from basic which stop your clothing from getting dirty to full anti biohazard coveralls used in the most dangerous of situations.
The correct protective grade for Asbestos coveralls is the Cat 3 Type 5/6 Coveralls. These are available in SMS material (Trilaminate fabric) which protect against fluid & particulate penetration as well as microporous which not also prevents liquid molecules from entering but allows water vapour to permeate outwards. Both the SMS & Microporous Cat 3 Type 5/6 coveralls vary in gram weight, the microporous coveralls tend to be harder wearing. Please be aware that cheap thin versions of either are commonplace which will easily split putting the wearer in danger.
