What is Diamond Core Drilling?
Diamond core drilling is a unique type of drilling which uses a non-percussive rotary drill with a diamond drill bit. Diamond tipped drill bits are designed to penetrate the hardest surfaces including; reinforced concrete, masonry, tile, stone, metal and glass.
Diamond drilling can be utilised in a range of situations where precisely cut circular openings are required. Often used to create large openings for ducts, smaller openings for pipes or wiring or to taking concrete test samples, we can diamond drill to virtually any depth.
The drilling can be carried out using hand held machines, for smaller holes, or demountable rigs for more accurate , angled, or larger diameter holes up to 750 mm diameter.
This enables holes to be formed where noise, vibration, or dust is an issue i.e. occupied areas.
We strive to keep areas of work clean, tidy and safe. We can provide a trained assistant for strict waste water control for works in office workspaces, residential properties and all finished areas that must be kept clean.
What are the advantages of Diamond Core Drilling?
Cost & Time Efficiency
Compared to alternative methods diamond core drilling can save you both time and money.
Controlling Noise, Dust and Vibration
Unlike alternative percussive methods, diamond core drilling limits exposure to noise, vibration and air pollution.
Clean, precise, accurate
With core bits ranging from 8mm to 750mm, this method offers a clean, precise, accurate finish every time.
As an Environment Agency accredited waste carrier we strive to minimize the negative impact our works have on the environment. Water is used to suppress dust and – if required – waste water can be reused as drilling proceeds.
What do we need to know?
- The dimensions/diameter of the required hole
- What is the material to be drilled? Brickwork, Engineering Brick, Mass Concrete, or Reinforced Concrete.
- What is the size type and quantity of reinforcement to be drilled if it is reinforced concrete.
- Do we have direct access to both sides of the surface?
- Is there 110v power and a water supply within 40m of the required work? Three Phase 415 volts will be required for large diameter holes over 500 mm diameter.
- Do we have building site conditions or a clean office environment where waste water is to be controlled?
