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 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 Bags at 30KG. It is important not to overfill the asbestos bags so that they do not split so would advise using 30kg bags as they are less likely to split and expose dangerous asbestos fibres. Asbestos bags must be correctly UN certified and coded for as asbestos.

02. Are there different Asbestos Bags available?

Asbestos 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.

Be careful what KG bag you are actually buying. Cheap asbestos bags will likely be low KG bags.

It is advisable to use the heaviest duty 30kg asbestos bags as they are less likely to split from over loading and therefore less likely to expose dangerous asbestos fibres.

The Asbestos 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 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.

03. What is the correct grade of coveralls needed for Asbestos removals?

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.
