’Bakelite’ Toilet Cisterns and Furniture

Early ’plastic’ toilet systems often had a small amount of asbestos added to the material to improve strength. The material is very stable and has a low asbestos content (approx 7%). In normal service, fibre release is unlikely so therefore, under present legislation, they do not need to be replaced. Generally if systems are in good condition, they can be left alone and ’managed in situ’ by annual inspection.
