Soft Cutting

What is Soft Cutting?

Soft cutting is a dry cutting system used mainly for concrete foundation slabs or to complete expansion cuts. The soft cutting method uses both a blade and a skid plate, which combine to apply pressure to the surface of the concrete. This prevents chipping and helps to control concrete shrinkage or cracking.

Most soft cutting can be used from residential housing to large commercial building foundations and floors or roadways. Using the soft cutting method makes it possible to control cracks and shrinkage earlier in the curing process, which is paramount in creating a higher quality slab, and also saves 12-36 house in the overall project timeline.

Wall Sawing

Why use wall sawing?

A wall saw is a high frequency machine that is electrically or hydraulically powered. It is bolted to the wall of reinforced concrete or other hard building materials being cut. It can cut any surface to a depth of 1-metre and is used to cut openings for windows, doors, staircases and elevators, or to create mechanical access openings or cabling openings.

These machines are highly accurate and very precise. They provide a straight and smooth finish on the openings whether they be horizontal or vertical. They are available in many different sizes in order to best match the project requirements. The wall saw has no fumes when used, making it ideal for populated areas and for the safety of the crew.

Road & Floor Sawing

What is Road Sawing?

Floor sawing, road sawing or slab sawing is a self-propelled machine that can cut any horizontal surface, including asphalt, tiles, pavers, brick, cobble stone, bridge decks, roadways, pavement, concrete and sandstone up to a depth of 600mm.

These saws are used to cut expansion joints, cut trenches for conduits, remove damaged areas, cut kerb and gutter or cut an access for utilities, cables, piping and more.

Our machines are powered many ways, including diesel, petrol or electrically, and use diamond tipped blades to produce a clean, smooth cut in any surface material.

Core Drilling

What is Core Drilling?

Core drilling is a vibration free, hole forming method. It can be done with either a mounted rig or a hand drill and they create clean, smooth holes in structural concrete, masonry, walls, floors and many other types of building materials. Holes can be small or large – 14 mm to 750 mm – depending on the individual project need.

Holes can be drilled into vertical surfaces, horizontal surfaces or even inverted if required. You normally need core drilling when installing electrical services, piping or HVAC systems and runway or taxiway lighting, or performing nuclear decommissioning. They are also used to create man holes, culverts, to prevent over cutting and to provide testing surfaces.
