    Hi folks,
    I’m disposing of 3 old storage heaters and checking if they contain asbestos before I take them to the tip. Two are Dimplex which for sure don’t contain asbestos. The third I can’t see on the list and wondered if anyone knows if the contents are asbestos.
    It’s a Dimplex uni dare I think - it definitely has the serial WMS718, pretty old possible 30 years. Thanks in advance.

    Hello Carolyn,

    I haven’t a clue, but usually found contacting the manufacturer (usually technical department) very informative

    Thanks.

    Thanks Ian, I did find that, but when it related to 17th edition wiring and she said thought it was over 30 years old, that’s what threw me :confused:

    Not definative but at 30 years old would be manufactured in early nineties or late 80s so wouldnt contain asbestos, if 70s then very possibly

    Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. It is about 30 years old from what I can gather, I’ve been here 14 years and I think it was installed years before when they first renovated. I’ll attach a couple of photos. Really appreciate your help.

    call the manufacturer and they will have a definative list, there are many types of asbestos and you can not tell by looking at it whether it is asbestos or not, but if 30 years old it wont be
