What is Chain Sawing?

Chain saws can cut the corners without any over cuts, saving the integrity of the slab or wall that is to be left in place. Chain saws are also used to cut openings in floors or walls when there is limited space for more conventional techniques such as track sawing or wire sawing. Chain sawing also provides an flush cutting option which gives the client the opportunity to get as close a cut to a floor or wall within 5mm of tolerance 

Concrete chain saws are commonly used for small service openings that are relatively small in outside dimension. Our chain saws can reach a maximum of 24” in cutting depth and are powered both Hydraulic and Electric providing the option to meet our client’s requirements internally and externally.

      May I take this opportunity to thank you all for your efforts during the Christmas and New Year shifts.  The works were not easy by any stretch of the imagination, compounded by adverse weather conditions , working away from home and site conditions that were not ideal.  We completed the works as far as we could and handed back both possessions on time without any accidents or incidents which we should be proud of.  We had a couple of high level visits from the client who were content with our efforts and achievements.
