Brokk Robotic Demolition & Concrete Bursting in Exeter, Devon
Exeter is a commercial and transport hub. The maintenance of facilities, roads, railways, bridges and one of the United Kingdom’s most ancient man-made waterways means that from time to time, demolition has to take place.
24-7 Diamond Drilling & Sawing Services has a 25 year track record in the demolition industry. When we started our demolition section, we realised that having the right equipment was essential and it had to be the best equipment available.
Brokk demolition units are specifically designed for demolition and we are the proud owners of several state of the art units. All Brokk units are powered by electric motors which drive hydraulic systems. They are really quiet and they don’t give off exhaust fumes. Both these factors are vital when working in confined or enclosed areas.
They run on tracks like small bulldozers; this enables them to climb stairs and manoeuvre into really tight places. The operator controls the unit from a remote panel, so he stays a safe distance from the work area. The types of work possible with Brokk machines are almost limitless. There is a comprehensive range of attachments including crushers, drills, impact hammers and cutters.
To demolish large concrete structures like bridge piers, dams and weirs we use concrete bursting equipment. These machines can take apart concrete structures up to five metres thick.
