Ground-breaking new technology reducing the risk of exposure to airborne asbestos fibres in the environment.

The Alert Pro 1000 is unique in the global market

The ALERT PRO 1000 is the world’s first early warning device for airborne asbestos fibres. Portable and easy to use, it continuously assesses the airborne environment providing a real-time alarm if asbestos containing materials are disturbed and their toxic fibres released into the air. This vital early warning enables an immediate and proactive safety response helping to prevent the risk of prolonged exposure.

The dangers of asbestos

The health risks related to the inhalation and ingestion of airborne asbestos fibres are widely understood. As a category one human carcinogen, asbestos-related diseases are responsible for 1 in 3 occupational cancers and claim the lives of 255,000 people worldwide every year.

Whilst there is no safe level of exposure, it is widely acknowledged that prolonged exposure to the small respirable fibres (< 3μm in thickness, > 5μm in length, with a 3:1 aspect ratio) greatly increases the risk of developing diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancers and asbestosis – diseases that may take decades to manifest and are often terminal.

A vital first line of defence

When asbestos containing materials are disturbed during works, fibres are not released in a uniform manner. The ALERT PRO 1000 draws air through the system in a controlled manner assessing airborne fibres of all sizes on the assumption that no asbestos fibre is safe and if large asbestos fibres are present in the air – so too will be smaller asbestos fibres.

Distinguishing airborne fibres

The only known device capable of distinguishing asbestos fibres from other non-asbestos fibres in the air in real-time – ALERT uses patented light scattering technology, the paramagnetic properties of asbestos fibres and a complex algorithmic statistical analysis that works to a 99% confidence level.

Risk reduction

Receiving an early warning when asbestos fibres have been disturbed and released into the air will help reduce prolonged and unintentional exposure. When alerted, key decision makers on site are then able to implement the appropriate corrective safety actions without delay.


Light-weight, portable and easy to use the ALERT PRO 1000 is most suitable for use in ambient indoor environments where the fabric of a structure is to be disturbed through maintenance, construction, restoration, improvements and demolition etc.

Developed over 10 years with the goal of saving lives, improving safety, reducing operational costs and liability ALERT is suitable to over 30 industry sectors worldwide and offers one of the biggest advancements in the field of asbestos monitoring for decades.
