Bursting

Bursting is an effective method of controlled demolition used to remove sections of concrete.

Bursting is an effective method of controlled demolition used to remove sections of concrete.

Bursting heads are placed in pre-drilled holes and are expanded under hydraulic pressure to produce cracks, effectively splitting the structure into smaller sections for removal.

The hydraulic burster is favoured in instances where vibration and noise must be limited due to other surrounding working environments (offices, Hospitals etc), and is more effective than hand held pneumatic tools. This machine can also be used very effectively in restricted areas as their hydraulic power pack can be powered by petrol, diesel or electric motors.

Typical Bursting applications include:

  • Controlled demolition of pillars, foundations, plinths, concrete walls, and large masses of concrete
  • Premises that may be in continual use such as hospitals, factories, offices and hotels
