What is Flat Sawing?
Flat Sawing is a process generally used to cut horizontal surfaces such as roads, bridges, concrete floor slabs, sidewalks, control joints, etc.… This advanced technology is designed to penetrate steel reinforced concrete, asphalt, stone, metal and pre-cast concrete. Flat sawing is accomplished using a diamond blade mounted on an electric or gas powered saw. These walk-behind machines are high-powered and lightweight, requiring only one operator. Flat sawing is excellent for concrete trench work and large-scale highway cutting.
Flat sawing is the most commonly used diamond cutting method and is often utilized in government construction projects, airport agencies, transportation projects, nuclear contractors and home improvement projects. Flat saws can be used both indoors and outdoors. Electric units are ideal for indoors projects or areas with low ventilation, whereas diesel saws are better suited for outdoor environments or well-ventilated areas.
Flat sawing, also referred to as slab sawing, has become a very sophisticated process in recent years. The powerful and lightweight design of modern flat saws has multiplied production rates over the past few years. Flat sawing is now an extraordinarily precise and efficient process, allowing other contracting work to be completed virtually uninterrupted.
Concrete Sawing at Texas Cutting and Coring
Our Texas Cutting and Coring developers and technicians have numerous innovations under their belt. Since the 1990s, we have revolutionized the industry with our exclusive wall-cutting saws and also introduced the first horizontal curb-cutting machine to serve our Texas clients as well as a growing clientele nationwide. With the advent of the Texas Cutting and Coring horizontal curb saw, many labor-intensive tasks involving concrete cutting can now be performed with minimal effort while still achieving maximum ease and precision. We aim to continue to exceed expectations not only for project results, but also for top-quality customer service and care apart from our Texas competitors.
We offer several primary concrete sawing options for any residential or commercial project. For concrete cutting needs outside of wall sawing, curb cuts and diesel and electric flat sawing services, the following machinery and services are at your disposal through our Texas Cutting and Coring locations:
Wire sawing is especially effective in small areas where a concrete saw cannot be used or where large machinery cannot be utilized. This type of saw offers either continuous or oscillating cuts via a metal wire or cable acting as the “blade.” The cutting mechanism, called a “kerf,” is a multi-strand wire-cable fitted with industrial diamonds that uses an adjustable pulley system to enable controlled demolition and precision cuts in any direction. Wire sawing can be exceptionally versatile and is highly requested for areas where tight maneuvering is required.
Early entry sawing with vacuum system is an option for cutting control joints, as it helps to minimize random cracking sometimes caused by internal stresses in the concrete structure. As an early step in the construction process, control joint-cutting is equally as crucial as the finishing steps. Our Texas Cutting and Coring technicians can help you plan and execute effective early entry sawing and vacuum system services, which can help to reduce stress on structural joints for the life of the concrete.
In fact, like all of our services at Texas Cutting and Coring, our diesel and electric flat saw technicians make recommendations and provide consultation to ensure strong joints and long-lasting results within the concrete structures involved in your projects. The right timing and materials are key, not only in the planning stages but also for the duration of your construction project. With a wide variety of tools, machines and products available, our staff can walk you through the entire process to help ensure great results every time.
Our state of the art diesel and flat sawing systems meet all industry standards for safety and cleanliness at the job site, ensuring that any damage to surrounding structures is minimal, if it occurs at all. In addition to our wide range of concrete sawing services, our team can also provide selective demolition, bridge parapet and wall demolition and concrete break and removal services to safely dismantle and/or haul away any concrete structure. At Texas Cutting and Coring, our outstanding customer care and attention to detail continue to set us apart among nationwide competitors year after year.
