Core drilling is one variety of concrete cutting that involves cutting holes inside of both reinforced and unreinforced concrete. There are a lot of industries that can benefit from this drilling procedure. What’s even better is that core drilling can sometimes be the answer to certain problems that may pop up during construction projects. Today, we will be reviewing problems that can be solved with the help of core drilling.
Core Drilling Keeps Construction Sites From Getting Messy
If you use hammers and other more standard methods for creating holes, a construction site can get messy fairly easily. If you use core drilling machines instead, you get more precise cuts that don’t kick up an abundance of dust. It’s also better for creating holes more quickly, cheaply, and in an energy-effective manner.
Reduce Noise Pollution
Cutting through holes can get noisy, and it can be a real bother while getting construction work done. With core drilling, you can create holes while making much less noise. This makes the procedure much more friendly on your ears, and we recommend using this method in places that are close to schools, hospitals, and other care facilities.
You Avoid Making Imperfect Holes
When you make holes using more standard procedures, it’s not as easy to get the perfect cuts you want. While these perfect cuts are still possible, it’s more difficult and can take more time. By using core drilling, you can cut the holes you need much more easily while saving considerable time. These holes can reach more than one meter in diameter.
Perhaps You Don’t Need a Round Hole
When people think of perfect holes, they may think of perfectly round holes, but these aren’t the only holes that can be created. If you use line or stitch drilling, you can create consecutive holes with the ability to overlap with one another. This helps when trying to remove bigger pieces of material and whenever concrete saws can’t get the job done.
You Can Cut Holes in the Ceiling
Cuts in the ceiling are trickier, and you’ll need the right tool for the job. By using the inverted version of core drilling, you can make cuts in surfaces that have to be penetrated through their undersides, typically because other points of access aren’t available.
