Controlled Demolition

Sealant & Construction Services specialise in the breaking up and removal of large concrete areas.

Bursting Services

Bursting Services

Bursting is used for the removal of large sections of concrete where heavy equipment is impractical. It is one of the safest and most efficient methods of breaking up concrete structures such as floors, walls and pillars of virtually any size, quietly and relatively dust free.

Holes are drilled in the concrete structure and the burster head is inserted. Hydraulic pressure is provided by a quiet electric motor, the build-up of lateral forces against the inside of the holes induces cracks in the concrete. The process is repeated until the whole structure is fractured into smaller sections ready for removal.

It is an extremely efficient method of concrete removal in premises that are sensitive, inaccessible or in constant use e.g. hospitals, hotels, factories and offices.

Crunching Services

Crunching Services

Crunchers are hydraulic jaws used for crushing and breaking concrete and is often used where there are confined spaces or a requirement to limit noise, dust and inconvenience.

Hand held jaws are closed over the concrete crushing it into small pieces. This process is virtually dust and vibration free and there is no need to pre-drill holes as in bursting. Smaller jaws can be used for sensitive demolition works.

  • Up to 300mm thick
  • Electric, diesel or petrol options
  • Low noise
  • Non percussive
  • Dust free
Controlled Demolition

Brokk Robotic Demolition

These are remote-controlled machines that are the quickest, easiest and safest possible way of carrying out smaller scale demolition or deconstruction projects. They are extremely versatile, with multiple attachments for various applications, and can access awkward areas with ease, as well as being able to carry out work that would normally take much longer with more traditional tools and methods.

 

  • SAFE – Robotic Demolition is remote controlled so workers are safe from any hand-held vibration as well as being able to be stood away from the works area, and risk from falling debris.
  • VERSATILE – Robotic Demolition machines come in a range of sizes from 400kg to 12 ton, they can be fitted with a variety of attachments including breaker, hydraulic crushing jaws, rotary scabblers and even drills, they can even climb stairs to access upper levels.
  • EFFICIENT – These machines are powerful and precise, making light work of breaking down various substrates in much shorter time than typical hand-held methods for example the Brokk 100 has a breaker with the equivalent hitting force of a 5 ton excavator. When compared to traditional methods such as hand-held breakers there is simply no comparison as 1 robot with operator can achieve many times the production of hand-held equipment for example a 1 ton Brokk with operator can break more concrete in 1 day than 5-10 operators with hand held equipment all without exposure to vibration and fatigue.
  • MINIMAL NOISE – The noise from demolition can be disturbing to people who live and work nearby, whether that is in urban or rural areas, where wildlife can also be affected. When fitted with the hydraulic crushing jaws as opposed to the breaker attachment these machines are much quieter and more efficient.
  • ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY – Previously the technology used in demolition has often had a negative impact on the environment with strong vibrations affecting people, animals and even damaging buildings/structures. Also, pollution with dust and fumes, carried in the air, that could potentially cause illness to local inhabitants. The use of Brokk machines means minimal vibration, reduction in dust issues and no fumes.
Controlled Demolition

Controlled Demolition

By combining all our services we can carry out the controlled removal of complete staircases, floors, walls etc.

These methods eliminate the risk of HAV and the use of noisy breaking equipment.
