Concrete Slab Sawing



Flat Sawing

Flat sawing is the most identified diamond cutting method. Flat sawing features a diamond blade that is mounted on a walk behind machine requiring one operator. It is generally used to cut horizontal surfaces such as floors, bridge decks, expansion joints, and pavement.

Flat sawing can be performed with a gas or electric/exhaust-free unit. Generally cuts can be made up to 24" deep. However, we do offer specialized cuts of up to 27" deep.

Flat sawing is an efficient means of cutting any aggregate. It is quick and precise, allowing other contracting work to be performed virtually uninterrupted.

Typical Applications Include:

  • Cutting reinforced concrete floors.
  • Cutting expansion and control joints.
  • Trenching.

Flat sawing is the most commonly used diamond cutting method. It is typically used to cut horizontal flat surfaces such as floors, bridge decks, and pavement. Also called slab saws, flat saws feature a diamond blade that is mounted on a walk-behind machine requiring only one operator. They can cut up to 24" in depth. Flat saws are typically used to provide expansion joints, remove damaged pavement sections, clean and prepare random cracks for repair, and remove concrete sections for demolition purposes.
