Drilling can be used to to drill openings into various
materials such as concrete, stone or rock.
When drilling on-reinforced concrete or brickwork,
a frame-mounted machine is commonly used.
While Percussion and rock drilling use a hammer
action technique which vibrates the material loose
with steel or tungsten carbide tips, clearing the
hole as it proceeds.
Small drills are commonly used for dowel bar
insertion and resin anchors, due to the rough
sidewalls that are left once drilled.
With the larger machines, the access and ground
conditions dictate the drilling system to be used.
For smaller diameters, restricted access and
shorter anchorages, a compact drifter rig is ideally
We use a wide selection of drills available for such
diverse operations as drilling through rocj and
mass material for installing lighting conductor
earthing rods and location voids prior to pressure
grouting on coastal defenses.
