You shouldn't have a problem taking it down. Be care full to not break it and create dust. Wear a quality dust mask. I would suggest taking a piece and getting it tested to make sure its asbestos, there were some materials that looked like it but didn't have the fibers. If you look close you will see the asbestos fibers.
