Crunching

Similar to bursting, crunching is used to break up large areas of concrete up to 300mm thick, but can also be used for smaller areas.

The procedure creates minimal noise, vibration and dust, so is perfect for using in areas where noise is prohibited. It will also not affect any surrounding structure, unlike some other methods.

Using 30 tonnes of pressure the jaws crush the concrete into smaller pieces and is repeated until the structure is gone.

Unlike bursting no pre-made diamond holes need to be made, and often the debris is much easier to clear.

It can be used for both internal and external work on buildings, including staircases, walls and other foundations.
