- Road/floor (diesel) saws are generally used for concrete and bitumen cutting of external areas with a capacity to cut to a depth of 500mm.
- Electric: this 3 phase power saw is designed for internal concrete cutting projects with a maximum depth of 300mm.
- Petrol driven, hand saws are versatile and used for cutting floors and paths that are inaccessible for a floor saw, as well as external block and concrete walls and concrete pipes. Hand saws have the capacity to cut up to a depth of 150mm.
- Hydraulic or petrol ring saws can be used for a range of applications, with a cutting capacity of 260mm.
- Petrol or hydraulic dragon saws have an optimal cutting capacity of 400mm.
- Hydraulic or petrol chain saws can be used for many different applications. This saw will cut to a depth of 600mm, and will provide square openings in walls or floors with no overcuts.
Track Mounted Wall Sawing
- 3 phase electric, the track mounted hydraulic or high-cycle electric wall saw is mounted on tracks for precision and portability. With a capacity to cut vertically, horizontally and inverted, to a depth of 700mm on pre-existing structures.
- Wire saws are heavy duty and are generally used for industrial applications, as this type of saw can cut concrete structures of nearly any thickness. Regularly used for bridge deck demolitions, dam walls and cutting other thick concrete structures, it is incredibly powerful and durable.
- Electric or hydraulic drilling is the most commonly used method to penetrate concrete. It is often used for utilities, when cables need to be run under the ground through concrete, as it creates small and accurate round holes, ranging fro 16mm diameter to 1100mm.
Floor Preparation (Grinding and Polishing)
- Grinding is one of the steps incorporated to remove any imperfections from a concrete surface in preparation for polishing, as well as a process used to level uneven slabs. It is regularly undertaken to remove glue, paint and other types of residue on concrete floors.
- Soff-cut saws are primarily used for early-entry sawing, such as the cutting of expansion joints with a depth of 25mm to 75mm.
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
- Ground penetrating radar is an accurate and non-evasive way of distinguishing reinforcement and services in concrete. It is crucial to use this type of radar prior to drilling and sawing, to avoid complications with utilities, as well as for onsite safety. The results of the radar can also be provided in a report.
