Transite Ceramic Siding

Transite siding, a type of siding material, was often manufactured with chrysotile asbestos, also known as white asbestos. Chrysotile was favored for its flexibility, durability, and fire-resistant properties, making it suitable for a variety of construction applications, including siding.

Chrysotile asbestos consists of long, curly fibers that could be added to cementitious materials like Transite to enhance strength and fire resistance. Transite siding was commonly used in the mid-20th century for its durability and resistance to weather conditions. It was used in residential, commercial, and industrial construction.

Asbestos-Containing transite ceramic siding

If you are dealing with older structures that may have Transite siding, especially those built before the late 20th century, it’s important to consider the potential presence of asbestos. When conducting renovations, demolitions, or any activities that may disturb transite siding, it is recommended to safely remove all asbestos-containing materials. Handling or disturbing asbestos without proper precautions can lead to the release of airborne fibers, posing serious health risks.
