The pictures to above show just two of the many floor preparation projects that GT Diamond Drilling can undertake. The near right shows the Avant with its pecker attachment breaking up a floor inside a retail unit in readiness for the installation of new concrete covering. The far right shows a large floor saw cutting channels into a concrete floor in a hospital which will contain new cabling services.
This picture shows the Floor Grinder removing the surface layer of concrete. The hose is connected to a 3 phase industrial vacuum cleaner which instantaneously removes dust before it enters the environment.
The second operator is using a second industrial cleaner to catch any dust disturbed by the grinder. Note the complete lack of dust in the atmosphere.

The condition of commercial floorspace will deteriorate over time. How fast this deterioration happens will largely depend on how well the surface has been prepared prior to the application of the covering. Dirt, oil, dust will reduce the life of the surfaces adhesion regardless of type. In industrial workspaces this can to lead to severe health & safety issues such as uneven surfaces causing slip or trip hazards. The headache for any business faced with a floor renovation project is the potential business disruption. Without suitable protection the dust from the grinder could not only make it impossible for staff to work in adjoining areas but cause damage to machinery or stock.
Fast and producing low dust levels this Blastrac Grinder is perfect for the preparation of floor surfaces ahead of new paint or floor coverings.
Fragile surfaces can be prepared or renovated using the advanced polishing capabilities of the Blastrac Grinder. Again an extremely quick and low dust solution to a common and difficult problem.
The installation of new cabling or other services can be problematic and costly. This can be even more disruptive when the services are required to be installed into flooring areas. The picture to the left shows how complete sections of concrete flooring can be accurately cut and removed, even without damaging the surrounding surfaces. The more remarkable aspect of this process is that the whole project was carried out with absolutely minimum disruption to the client and their business. Racking, displays and stock all remained in situ while the work was carried out.
