Disposal of asbestos strips from the roof sheathing
Location: Olšanská ul. Praha
Area: 2 000 tons
It is forgotten that asbestos is not only found on roofs in the form of eternit (templates) or asbestos-cement roofing (wavelet) but can also be found on flat roofs where asphalt strips – bitumen roofing or cardboard – were used as roofing.
Detection of asbestos in these coverings is only possible on the basis of the results of a pre-remediation survey. The removal of asbestos-containing asphalt strips is quite challenging due to the nature of the material and the time of year in which the work is carried out (asphalt expands and is harder to work with in summer). We, therefore, recommend that this work is carried out at colder times of the year.
The presence of asbestos-containing materials was identified in the various layers of the roofing – asphalt strips – following a pre-implementation survey. Due to the location of the building, which is close to residential properties, a remediation procedure was proposed in a closed controlled zone, which was approved by the investor and the regional sanitary station (hereinafter referred to as KHS).
In Hradec Kralové we removed the entire composition of the painful façade panel including asbestos-containing materials.
Disposal of asbestos from the roof of a family house
The asbestos-containing roofing material was removed by hand in the least destructive way possible to prevent asbestos fibres from dusting into the air.
Asbestos disposal was carried out in the centre of Prague under strict safety conditions. The asbestos remediation took place over 20 days.
We removed the asbestos fill and replaced the electrical distribution trays themselves. We replaced the asbestos with certified material with fire-resistant and non-conductive properties.
