Wire sawing is a technique that originated in quarries to extract stone. It has proven to be an ideal choice for the removal of thick sections of concrete.

Wire Saw (2)

A multi-strand cable fitted with diamond beads is threaded through a series of pulleys and is pulled continuously through the concrete. Since virtually no concrete structure or cross-section is too large to cut, wire saws are used whenever other cutting methods are impractical. The only restriction is the lifting and removal specifications of the job.

Wire sawing is ideal for removing large sections of heavily reinforced concrete, such as piers, towers and bridge sections, and for cutting concrete in areas where work space is restricted. So-called circle saws are used for cutting larger diameter holes for spiral staircases etc.
