Slab sawing—also known as flat sawing—is a quick and efficient method used for cutting surfaces such as concrete slabs, control joints, bridge decks, and roadways. Slab sawing creates a clean cut, preventing spalling and cracking.
Slab Sawing Applications
- Cutting reinforced concrete floors, control joints, and trenches
- Cuts up to 24″ deep, with specialty cuts up to 27″
- Used for mechanical and electrical trenching
- Preparation for new footing installations in existing structures
- New structural slab openings for stairways, elevators, mechanical penetrations, etc.
- Removal of a damaged or deteriorated slab
- Cutting of control joints in new concrete
- Runways and bridge deck reconstruction or repair
Benefits of Slab Sawing
- Can be powered electrically for zero emissions
- Water is used in the process for dust control
- Specialty blades can be used for noise-sensitive areas
- Eliminates spalling during the removal process
- Saws range from 5hp to 77hp
