Asbestos-containing materials fall into two broad categories: non-friable and friable.
‘Non-Friable’ (meaning solid or rigid) refers to the material containing asbestos that is not friable, including the material containing asbestos fibres reinforced with a bonding compound. These materials are unlikely to release measurable levels of asbestos fibre into the airborne environment if they are left undisturbed. Therefore, they generally pose a lower risk to health.
GBAR undertakes the removal of non-friable materials, including:
- super six roof sheeting
- asbestos fencing
- asbestos fibre cement wall sheeting, ceilings, and soffits
- vinyl floor tiles
- asbestos water pipes, gutters and downpipes
- asbestos backing sheets in electrical distribution boards
- asbestos-containing window putty and caulking
- contaminated soil.
‘Friable’ (meaning soft or crumbly) is used to refer to asbestos-containing materials in a powder form or that can be crumbled, pulverized or reduced to powder by hand, when dry. These materials are more likely to release measurable levels of asbestos into the airborne environment when disturbed, and generally, pose a greater risk to health.
GBAR undertakes the removal and remediation of friable materials found in:
- low-density board wall and ceiling linings
- friable vinyl sheeting
- pipe lagging
- roof insulation (Mr Fluffy)
- contaminated soils
- fire-damaged asbestos wall and roof sheeting
- asbestos dust and debris
- fire retardant products.
Should I Be Worried About Asbestos?
It’s important to know that the presence of asbestos-containing material is not dangerous in and of itself. Asbestos-containing materials pose a threat to your health when they are disturbed and subsequently inhaled. Therefore, before you begin any renovation or construction work on your property, it’s important that you have your property tested for asbestos before carrying out any works.
Asbestos materials were commonly used in the manufacturing process of residential and commercial building materials from the mid-1940s until the early 1990s. In fact, It wasn’t until the 1980s that asbestos cement materials were phased out in favour of asbestos-free materials. As a result, many of the houses and properties that were built before 1990 in Australia contain asbestos cement materials in the internal and external wall cladding, ceilings, and eaves — just to name a few of the most common places.
We’ve been working with satisfied clients for more than a decade to deliver asbestos removal solutions that make your property safer for inhabitants and neighbours.
