Asbestos Sheets

Asbestos sheets are construction materials that were typically used in the formation of roofs, sidings, partitioning, buildings and interiors, before the materials dangers were fully recognised. Fibrous cement created an easy and affordable alternative to corrugated metal panels, which offer little insulation and inevitably rust over time.

Predominantly produced by mixing chrysotile Asbestos fibres with cement to improve weather resistance and corrosion, the application would then be moulded into a flat Asbestos sheet or corrugated Asbestos sheet design.

This was just one of a number of Asbestos cement products used in the construction industry historically and may still be present in some homes and commercial units today.

Asbestos corrugated sheets are classified to be a Category II, nonfriable material, which means it is dangerous and the material should be abated prior to demolition or renovation. Although designated nonfriable, the sheets can become friable with age and damage.

If the material is not damaged, it may be removed by driving the nails through the sheet or cutting off the nail or screw heads. Damaged Asbestos sheets, however, are subject to much stricter regulations.

Each piece of corrugated sheet or sheathing should be removed whole and kept wet to prevent asbestos dust from getting into the air, and all materials should be disposed of by a licensed disposal service. We recommend all Asbestos-containing materials be abated by licensed professionals.
