Controlled Demolition

Ram Services Limited - Controlled Demolition - Concrete Bursting - Concrete CrunchingControlled demolition utilises a wide range of specialist techniques and equipment to take down or remove parts of an existing structure in a safe and predictable manner.

Controlled Demolition work is commonly required where major alterations to a structure are being carried out, perhaps as part of a change of use. Examples include the formation of openings in floor slabs for lift shafts, escalators or service ducts, or in walls for doors and windows.

Changes in structural configuration may also be called for during modification or upgrade works, for example in water treatment plants or power stations.

Through the use of the right techniques and equipment, possibilities are created for such work to proceed with minimal noise, vibration or disruption, all of which may be critical in environments such as hospitals, manufacturing plants, retail premises etc.

Use of robotic demolition equipment significantly reduces the risk of injury to the work force, whilst offering opportunities for saving time and therefore cost.

Correct choice and implementation of such specialist techniques enables precise removal of concrete, masonry and metal, whilst minimising additional cost created by over break or other lack of precision.

Robotic Demolition using Brokk 90

Ram Services Limited - Controlled Demolition - Concrete Bursting - Concrete CrunchingThis wirelessly remote controlled machine increases productivity and dramatically improves safety, with the operator being as far as 50m away from the work area.

The high productivity of a Brokk demolition robot coupled with the safety of remote control, places these machines at the forefront of controlled demolition field.

There is nothing to compare with a Brokk machine when it comes to demolition in confined spaces.

There are no fumes, no operator vibration, minimal dust giving good operator visibility and high productivity levels drastically reduce risks in such environments.

Additional benefits are the low weight of the machine allowing it to work on shop, hotel, offices and similar buildings. The Brokk machine can move itself up and down stairways, will fit readily into most lifts or can easily be craned into place. The machine has a high power to weight ratio, and carry heavy attachments compared to its size.

When utilising the crusher jaws, Brokk operation has low noise and vibration levels, making it ideal for use in critical environments such as hospitals, retail premises, offices etc. Manoeuvrability, together with the other benefits outlined above, also make the Brokk machine suitable for soft stripping offices and retail premises.
