Concrete Wall Sawing

Track sawing for horizontal and vertical surfaces.

Wall saws are typically used on vertical surfaces when a new doorway, window or HVAC openings are needed. Wall sawing employs a diamond blade on a track-mounted system that can be used for vertical or horizontal cuts. Wall sawing allows for precise cuts in both concrete and masonry structures. These saws run on hydraulic or electric power and are also commonly referred to as concrete track saws. We have several hydraulic saws that have the power to saw effectively. Recent developments in high cycle technology have created alternatives to hydraulic equipment. The high cycle equipment allows this wall sawing contractor to get to locations further from the truck than hydraulics allow. They are also lighter in weight to allow them to be transported easier.

Wall sawing can be performed up to 30" deep. Cutting can also be performed from both sides of the wall, giving a total depth of up to 60". If your opening requires a specific angle through the concrete, this saw can accommodate. If you have thicker walls and floors, a wire saw can be utilized to achieve the cutting necessary.

Typical Applications Include:

  • Straight, smooth finished openings in walls, ceilings, and floors
  • Accurately sized, fixture ready openings
  • Bevel cutting for a chamfered edge
  • Flush cutting against other wall surfaces
  • Foundations, Dams, levies, precast walls

Hand Sawing

Chain and hand sawing is commonly employed when general wall sawing can't be performed. Hand held units are equipped with diamond blades and chains. Hand sawing provides portable, quick cutting with minimal over-cuts.

Typical Applications Include:

  • Electrical, plumbing, and HVAC openings.
  • Ventilation and air conditioning openings.
  • Small, tightly accessed areas where cutting is needed.

Hand sawing refers to the lighter duty use of diamond blades in hand held power saws and chain type saws. Hand sawing provides portability, speed and accessibility at construction and demolition sites.Typical applications include sawing concrete pipe to length, creating openings for electrical, plumbing or other needs in concrete walls, floors and ceilings, eliminating overcuts associated with other types of sawing, and precision trimmings.
