        Believed to be manufactured by T&N, though these appear to have French origin as there was a booklet in French about them?

            Thank you for the post – interesting pictures!  Do you have some more detail about the material and the type of building etc?

            Anybody else come across this before?

            Thanks

              We have kept 2 sections and are hoping to send one section to the asbestos museum in Holland. It’s a pity that we don’t have such a museum, or maybe we do?

              It appears to be denser than normal AC though in practice strength will be provided by the panel shape rather than corrugation.

              I posted them on Linkdin under my name and the post received many replies. I think someone said that similar products were in T&N Trafford offices. Someone also had a pattern booklet from T&N with the same oak pattern.

                A British asbestos museum, featuring asbestos jewellery  has been in the back of our minds for a while.  Not sure who would come and see it though, except us asbestos nerds!  Here is a photo for the gallery – found in a high street coffee shop.Coffee pot handle chrysotile rope

                  I once was asked to re-visit a pub which has been surveyed by a a colleague on the South coast as they had come across a suspect asbestos product which was not in the survey report. Above the main pub was a large function room which had decorative ‘timber’ panelling round the entire room very similar in appearance to the photos shown.

                  It looked a lot like wood but was very cold to the touch and was very hard and brittle (as it had been broken by contractors). The product was asbestos cement and I think contained Chrysotile alone.

                  Very easy to miss unless you touch it….. Only seen once in 15 years!

                      Following on from norac_295121’s post, I surveyed an old manor house around 10 years ago.  The house was taken over by the Local Authority after WWII, and contains various representation spaces, as well as (badly) reconfigured office space.

                      One of the representaion spaces (the main ground floor space) had wood panelled walls almost everywhere, apart from the panels around a door which were AIB lookalikes.  Just goes to prove, a cursory glance and tappy-tap won’t always suffice…
