Matrix had its start as an Asbestos Abatement company. This birth has resulted in asbestos training and work practices being included in all work that we complete. Our founder was one of the pioneers of the Asbestos Abatement industry in the 1980′s and that knowledge has been disseminated to every level of our organization.
Asbestos is an insulating and sound attenuating product that is used as pipe and ceiling insulation, sprayed-on fireproofing, and a variety of other uses. It can also be contained in flooring, roofing materials and some cement products. Overexposure to asbestos can cause health problems. Asbestos abatement, the safe removal of asbestos, is highly regulated and its safe handling and disposal is a major segment of the demolition market.
Matrix staff are experienced in identifying and distinguishing friable and non-friable asbestos encountered at your project site. One major component of the U.S. EPA’s Asbestos standard deals with the issue of whether a material contains friable or non-friable asbestos. The National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Asbestos (NESHAP) defines friability as the ability to crush or pulverize, hand pressure, to determine whether potential asbestos-containing material (ACM) can become airborne, and therefore respirable, when it is handled or disturbed. If a material is determined to be non-friable it may be able to be disposed of as non-asbestos containing, dependent upon individual state or municipal asbestos regulations.
Matrix has completed projects of every type; from large scale projects to simple. Our team at Matrix will complete your project safely using the latest technology and regulations. We have never been cited for a regulatory violation and always perform to the highest levels of expectations.
