Controlled Demolition


Hydraulic Bursting is a quiet and very effective method of controlled demolition and one of the safest, most efficient methods of removing reinforced, mass concrete, brickwork, or natural stone. Hydraulic Bursters are placed in Diamond Drilled holes in pre-determined positioned and expanded to induce controlled cracking of the material. The process is repeated until the whole structure is fractured into smaller sections and ready for removal.

Concrete Crunching provides an efficient method for reducing concrete to rubble without vibration or water. Jaws are applied to the free or open edge of a concrete structure. Hydraulic power forces the jaws to close crushing the concrete. The process is repeated until the whole structure is removed.

Remote controlled machinery provides the ideal solution for most controlled demolition projects. With a small footprint the machines can be operated in confined spaces and provide massive productivity gains compared with traditional methods. The operator controls the machine from a safe-distance using a remote control device connected by a cable or radio signal, minimising danger from falling rubble and debris, avoids Hand Arm Vibration and allows access to areas not possible with traditional methods. Brokks are powered by electric motors, ensuring a low noise output and the absence of exhaust fumes. All machines can be fitted with demolition tools including breakers, jaws and buckets, to suit a range of tasks.
