Wire Sawing in Torbay
Torbay: The borough of Torbay is possibly the best place to take a holiday in the whole of the British Isles. It has an unusually warm microclimate with warm, wet winters and summers in which the average temperature is in the low 30s. But with popularity comes a certain responsibility to keep the transport network in peak condition along with all the other services and amenities. Where towns have been established for many years, it is sometimes difficult to find space for further development. Either the existing facilities have to be renovated or they have to be removed and replaced with entirely new structures. When it comes to replacing or repairing road and railway facilities, contractors are often faced with removing very heavily reinforced concrete beams and pillars designed to carry motorway decks and railway lines. These supports were designed to withstand constant pressure and stress, so removing them is always a challenge.
Similar issues are encountered in multi-storey buildings. The beams and pillars are extremely strong and require special skill and equipment to remove or alter them. 24-7 Diamond Drilling and Sawing Services has been involved in construction for 35 years, so we know a thing or two about altering and removing reinforced concrete decks, pillars and beams. Wire saws are highly flexible machines capable of sawing in places that most other saws and drills cannot operate in. The diamond coated, flexible line that acts as the wire can be threaded around beams and pillars or through holes drilled through floors and walls. Wire saws are also used to cut through walls and flooring decks to create stairwells, doorways or entrances to service shafts. Because the line is so flexible, it is possible to work on submerged structures. The power supply remains on dry land while the line runs out to the structure being worked on.
