Concrete wall sawing creates openings for windows or doors. It also separates a wall area for demolition. Additionally, it cuts vertical surfaces such as concrete or brick walls for cutting openings in vertical surfaces and places where it’s not best to use flat saws. A track attaches to the wall, and the concrete saw runs along the track to make a linear cut.
Concrete wall sawing provides for windows and doors as well as silos, chests, foundations, ducts, large diameter pipes, and the removal of partial or entire existing walls. Some applications of wall sawing are reinforced concrete walls, floors, and demolition cutting through structural concrete, cinder block, stone, and asphalt. Here is a deeper look at wall sawing and its benefits.
Offers High Strength Compression
Wall sawing helps to remove damaged concrete with its high strength compression. It’s advantageous for covering long spans that aren’t viable for steel. Wall sawing openings in concrete foundations while cutting through beams and columns and making flush cuts. Operators can use a circular blade to cut through walls up to 24″ thick, making it one of the best choices for demolition jobs.
Efficient and Accurate
Wall saws are electronic without external e-boxes and fully integrated, ensuring that the saws are lighter and more compact. Wall saws also come equipped with fewer electrical interfaces and cables. In other words, wall saws don’t have any heavy hydraulic lines. These features make saws less complicated to set up, use, and transfer, which saves a lot of time.
Advanced, high-quality saws mean increased productivity and time for other tasks. Additionally, the best wall saws have a fully-automated cutting process that starts when the saw detects the surface, thus optimizing gear, water flow, and speed even when it’s time to cut through rebar. You can also the saws via remote control, enhancing the accuracy and quality of the cuts.
