Concrete Diamond Cutting & Sawing
Concrete diamond cutting is used on hard flat surfaces such as walls and floors, roads and pavements. Our advance technology concrete diamond sawing equipment is versatile enough to allow us to cut through any thickness of reinforced concrete precisely, to any dimension and shape. Indeed, we can saw though a variety of construction materials, both indoors and outdoors, in the most challenging of spaces and environments.
Our widely experienced, highly skilled and fully qualified team of concrete diamond cutting specialists will approach every project, small or large, for new build or refurbishment, with the same dedicated, customer focussed and results driven focus.
Concrete Diamond Sawing Floors
Floor saws are either diesel or electrically powered machines which can cut up to depths of 600mm. They are self-propelled and require an operator to walk behind it to determine the speed and depth of cutting.
We have used these in the past to cut out sections of floor slab in supermarkets to form new trenches for either services, drainage or to form expansion joints.
Concrete Diamond Cutting: Wall (Track) Sawing
This method of cutting is used for inclined surfaces. It involves a track, which is attached to a surface and then the saw blade is guided by the track to form an opening in the concrete, such as a window or door. It is a quick and precise method that can cut up to depths of 1000mm.
We also use a variety of hand held sawing devices that are usually used to form openings in brick or block work but can be used for concrete as well if suitable.
Case study – HSBC
Back in March 2017 we were approached by our client to price the removal of a walk-in concrete safe in a recently vacated HSBC branch, which had to be returned to its original footprint prior to the bank’s use.
The safe consisted of 300mm thick heavily reinforced concrete walls and roof slab. The safe measured 3400mm wide by 3000m deep and 2700mm high overall. The reinforcement ran vertically and then had spiral/helical bars wrapped around each vertical bar.
