What is Roadsawing and Core Drilling?
As the names suggest, a roadsaw and core drill will saw and drill through tough surfaces with self-propelled technology and diamond blades. These roadsaw tools are built from heavy-duty materials so that they can cut through surfaces as thick as 450mm. Smaller jobs may only require a hand-held saw, or in jobs where there is limited access and the depth cut is only moderate. The core drilling tools have diamond-tipped barrels which can neatly and quickly cut through surfaces like roads and bitumen, creating a minimal disturbance and an easy circular space to fill. The work does not create any vibrations or movement, which is a great advantage when projects are located in sensitive environments.
When core drilling, our technicians will typically drill a hole with a diameter between 10mm to 1000mm. The hole depth will depend on the works, and NDEA can supply extension bars that can be affixed to the drill to continue coring to the desired depth. Like all the tools and equipment owned by NDEA, the roadsaws and core drills are maintained to a high standard so works can be completed efficiently and within compliance every time. We are also meticulous about keeping our work areas clean, so any water is vacuumed up and disposed of so that your site is always neat and clean.
