Hydraulic Bursting (Concrete Bursting)

Hydraulic bursting/concrete bursting is one of the safest and easiest ways of removing mass and reinforced concrete walls or floors.

By combining hydraulic bursting to remove concrete mass and forming diamond drilled holes, manageable sections are created to ease removal. The burster is then placed into the hole and uses forces of up to 413 tons to crack and separate material being removed. Due to the immense forces generated by this hydraulic powered machinery, it greatly reduces the need for conventional concrete bursting methods.

Diamond Technique have successfully drilled and performed concrete bursting on reinforced bases over 1500mm deep sited within 25m of hospital operating theatres. Additionally, other hydraulic bursting contracts have also been completed on sensitive sites using these techniques.

Why Use Hydrauli Bursting?

Hydraulic bursting is an excellent option for many projects where large masses of concrete must be removed. Some benefits of the process include:

  • Dust free – this ensures the area where the concrete bursting is performed can be any environment
  • Low Noise – Ideal for sensitive areas such as hospitals, offices and libraries
  • Large concrete areas – Hydraulic bursting can be used to demolish large areas efficiently
  • No Vibration – Making concrete bursting an ideal technique for use within sensitive areas
  • Hand-held concrete bursting – Versatile and mobile, so ideal for use in tight and confined spaces
  • Multiple materials – Can be used on stone, masonry and concrete

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 Technique is the most competitive professional concrete cutting contractors in the Midlands. We will carry out a free no obligation site visit and based on our findings/site discussions, submit a fixed price within 24 hours.
We can carry out a full muck away service using waste skips or grab lorries. We can arrange council permits or carry out the waste removal at night if there are access restrictions.
We work closely with our customers and can work on site at times that suit your shift patterns.
We use the latest concrete cutting machines on the market. We have methods of cutting that are fume, noise reduced and vibration free. Water that is used to diminish dust can be successfully controlled and removed. Every type of job is possible!
