Concrete Bursting Methods

Concrete Bursting

Concrete bursting methods use a noise-free controlled way of demolition where quiet, dust-free and vibration-free demolition is required.

Holes are drilled in the concrete structure and a burster head is inserted, which is then expanded by hydraulic power. This power is provided by a motor, run by electricity, diesel or petrol. A build-up of lateral forces against the inside of the holes causes the concrete to crack. The cracks combined with the holes create planes of weakness, causing the concrete to fracture into smaller sections which can then be removed by hand or crane.

With up to 80 tonnes of pressure exerted it can break up the thickest of materials.

Where Can Concrete Bursting Be Used?

Concrete bursting is used to remove large concrete structures such as foundations, pillars, bearers, staircases and concrete walls.

Often the constraints imposed by a structures location requires the removal of concrete and masonry in manageable lumps with minimal noise and vibration, for example, office blocks, hospitals, shopping centres and residential buildings.
