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