London's Leading Concrete Chasing Contractors

Concrete chasing is a fast and cost effective technique used in the construction industry to cut neat channels (known as chases) into concrete and masonry structures. Concrete chasing is commonly used on concrete walls, floors and ceilings to pave the way for conduits and pipe work. The method results in clean and accurate channels for pipe work and cables. Concrete chasing is carried out using a hand-held system featuring a diamond blade. As a result, it is possible to work on all types of concrete, brick, block, asphalt and many more hard surfaces. The method also utilises other tools such as dust extraction tools, a hammer, a small breaker and power drills.

How Does Concrete Chasing Work?

During concrete chasing, a hand-held system is used to cut the concrete surface. The blade is set to cut a constant depth that matches the size of the chase required.

 

The number of cables and sockets required dictate the number of parallel cuts made. Cutting takes place alongside dust extraction equipment which captures the dust before it escapes and pollutes the surrounding environment. After cutting, other tools such as a hammer, breaker or power drill can be used to break the centre piece away if necessary.

 

Typical chases are classified depending on size i.e. single and double (25 by 25 mm and 50 by 25 mm). Diamond floor saws can be used instead of hand-held cutters providing there’s a lot of chases that need forming in a slab or because the concrete is too hard or deeper chases are required than can be achieved with hand-held grinders with diamond blades.

Benefits of Concrete Chasing include:

Dust Free

Concrete chasing is a method which produces minimal dust when cutting channels on concrete, brick or block structures. Dust is contained by using dust extraction equipment during cutting. Unlike conventional concrete cutting methods that require water as a coolant, chasing is mainly a dry cutting process.

 

Precision

The method is commonly used to create neat and precise chases on concrete or masonry structures for conduits and pipe work in walls, floors and ceilings. It is suitable for all types of concrete, brickwork and blockwork.

 

Efficiency

Concrete chasing is fast and time efficient compared to other concrete cutting method utilising light weight hand held cutting systems.

 

Ideal for Concrete Surfaces

Concrete chasing is suitable for making chases on typical concrete surfaces. Furthermore, the method can always be substituted by methods such as diamond floor sawing when deeper cuts are required.

 

Minimal Vibrations

Concrete chasing produces very little vibration. The method is, therefore, ideal when noise and structural integrity is a concern.

 

Dry Cuts

Concrete chasing doesn’t require water. The method is, therefore, free of all the risks water introduces to worksites.
