Asbestos Removal

Once hailed as a “miracle” mineral, asbestos has been used since the early 1900s for fireproofing, insulation and sound control. Time, however, has proven asbestos to be a significant health hazard, linked to serious lung disease and certain types of cancer.

Colfax Corporation has the expertise, experience and equipment to protect your employees and the environment from exposure to this hazardous material during the abatement process. Using state-of-the-art equipment, advanced systems and fully trained and certified workers, we can help you meet your legal, health and safety requirements.

We have the facilities for removal and proper disposal of pipe, duct, boiler and other asbestos containing insulations, sprayed-on fire retardant and acoustical wall materials, floor and ceiling tiles, panel boards, and other asbestos-containing products. All work, performed in full accordance with federal, state and local regulations, is carefully designed to minimize disruption to your building operations.
