The Diamond Wall Saw has a variety of uses including cutting off or reducing sections of reinforced concrete walls to forming doors, escalator or lift shaft openings. Lightweight and easily transportable components ensure diamond wall sawing is capable in multi-storey buildings and on either walls or floors up to depths of 700mm. This equipment has flush cutting capabilities and therefore providing tight cutting up to parallel walls and floors.
Floor Sawing (Diesel Powered)
Cutting of reinforced concrete or asphalt gives clean and straight cutting depths of up to 500mm. The floor sawing method is used for cutting the following:
- Per linear metre separation
- Straightening rough areas of slabs
- The perimeter of openings
- Internal floor areas into sections
Each section can then be lifted out removing the vibration caused by using breakers. Expansion joints in new concrete floors can be formed with cutting widths varying from 3mm – 20mm.
Floor Sawing (Electric Powered)
We operate powerful Electric Floor Saws for internal cutting works. This method of floor sawing is ideally suited for protected environments including hospitals, food or chemical production facilities or heavily populated areas such as shopping centres and offices.
We can achieve depths of 500mm through heavily reinforced concrete floor slabs and ground beams. Although these machines can run diamond blades up to 1500mm diameter, they are designed to fit through standard personnel doors and as a result, minimises access problems. Due to these machines being powered by 415 volt electricity they are operator and environmentally friendly.
Diamond Wire Sawing
The diamond wire saw is highly effective for cutting extremely thick and heavily reinforced structures. This machine excels in sensitive areas due to portability, very low noise and low vibration levels .
A thin, diamond-bead impregnated wire is threaded through a pre-drilled hole in the structure. The wire is run through a series of pulleys and around a powered feed wheel, where it can then easily be pulled through the concrete structure like a cheese wire.
