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.
