Within this page is a brief overview of the services we offer, from controlled demolition to diamond cutting. To view a bigger version of each image, just click on the picture.
For the safety of our operatives and to eradicate Hand Arm Vibration Speed Drill has invested heavily into Brokk remotely controlled demolition robots.
These are electrically powered so are perfect for use inside buildings, basements, and confined spaces, they are small enough to fit through single doorways, and can climb up and down staircases.
As the operator is separated from the machine via radio controls he can be a safe distance away to avoid any risk of injury.
We have had great success with these machines within the basement below the Houses of Parliament and upon the main trading floor within Barclays Tower in Canary Wharf.
With the modern system of paperless banking, we have found them to be an invaluable tool for the removal of now redundant bank vaults.
In very hard to access situations where robot access is prohibited, we can use hand held splitters and crushers. These methods enable concrete structures to be dismantled without any noise, dust, or flying debris being generated, and are ideal for working in live hospitals.
These machines are hydraulically powered by means of a small petrol or electric power pack. This allows demolition to be carried out within occupied buildings, without disruption to business.
To be ahead of the field, Speed Drill was the pioneer of the new High Frequency technology track saws in the UK.
These machines have revolutionised Health and Safety as they no longer require numerous bulky hydraulic hoses leaking oil everywhere. They also break down into small modular parts each weighing less than 25kg meaning they are now truly a one man operation.
In the case of very thick structures too vast for a track saw blade to penetrate, we utilise diamond wire sawing technology. This uses a wire rope impregnated with diamond beads, which can be cut and joined to virtually any length required.
The wire is wrapped around the structure and uniformly drawn through under constant pressure until the cut is complete, just like cutting a block of cheese.
Where access is very limited or a very small opening is required we can use a variety of hand saws and chain saws.
These machines, being hydraulically powered are very light, manoeuvrable to use and deceptively powerful. They can be fitted with a range of blades/chains to suit all types of material.
All machines are water fed to eliminate dust generation. The resultant water slurry is constantly removed with an Aqua-Vac whilst the cutting progresses.
