- Electric meterboards
In domestic premises, electric meter boards are commonly known to contain asbestos.
With many homeowners and investors upgrading and making changes to lighting features within the home, often there is a requirement to make alterations to the electric meter board.
Approx. 2 million homes have meter boxes containing asbestos. When the meter board is drilled into, as often happens during electrical work, the asbestos becomes friable (crumbly), releasing asbestos fibres which can potentially be breathed in by unwary householders or electrical workers.

Before you make any adjustments to your meter board, make sure the asbestos removal is completed first.
How to Detect Asbestos in Meter boards
The best way to know whether your meter board contains asbestos is the age of your home. If your home was constructed prior to the 90s and the meter board has never been replaced, then it may contain asbestos. Meter boards with asbestos are generally said to be black in colour.
If your meter board has asbestos, it may contain one of the following brand names stamped – Lebah, Ausbestos, Miscolite and Zelemite. More information on how to determine if you have asbestos in your meter board can be found here.
