Is the most commonly used diamond cutting method. It is typically used to cut horizontal flat surfaces such as floors, bridge decks, and pavement.
Also called slab saws, floor saws feature a diamond blade that is mounted on a walk-behind machine requiring only one operator. Flat saws are typically used to provide expansion joints, remove damaged pavement sections, clean and repair random cracks for repair, and remove concrete sections for demolition purposes.
Our range of floor saws can cut shallow crack inducing cuts on new PQ without marking green concrete to 500mm deep on the hardest of flint aggregate concrete stands.
All units are self-contained with integral water supplies within the operators vehicle. As with the diamond wall saw blade, a floor saw blade consists of a circular steel core with diamond segments attached to the periphery. The blade is mounted vertically on the spindle of the floor saw. The floor saw is pushed or propelled along a flat surface while the diamond blade makes the vertical cut to the required depth.
Flat saws are typically powered by gasoline or diesel engines, electric or hydraulic sources.
Floor saw blades require water feed to flush the cut and to act as a coolant. While floor sawing has many highway and airport applications, a typical building application is the removal of floor structures.
Floor sawing, as well as wall sawing, is an excellent demolition aid due to its speed, control of the process, low noise and vibration. Our 3 Phase Electric saws can also cut up to 500mm deep in confined areas or clean environments.
