What is Ring Sawing?

Diamond ring sawing is a technique that uses hand-operated, diamond-tipped ring saws to cut through many materials such as concrete, brick and blockwork. It is particularly useful in challenging construction situations where there is restricted space on site.

Ring saws are a handheld hydraulic system. Although they resemble petrol hand held saws, they are very different to use – producing no fumes, creating minimal noise and achieving much greater depth of cutting than petrol hand saws. The circular shape of the blade makes them perfect for cutting concrete and masonry in small or restricted spaces.

Diamond ring saws are ideal for cutting concrete up to depths of 325mm. This extra cutting depth makes them perfect fur cutting concrete walls and double-skin brick walls. This is made possible by the shape of the saws – in a diamond ring saw, the blade drive rollers are fitted to the rear of the blade near the handle, instead of in the middle of the blade. This means that all of the blade can be used to cut.

How does Ring Sawing work?

The material to be cut should be marked in order to guide the saw operator. Ring saws are hand-held, so although they can be fitted with a guide rail to improve accuracy, the precision is largely achieved through our highly skilled operatives.

Most diamond ring saws are hydraulic-powered, so they don’t produce fumes, making them perfect for indoor cutting applications.

What is Ring Sawing used for?

In the hands of our highly-skilled operatives, ring saws are ideal for creating square corners and straight cuts. For this reason, diamond ring saws are the best option for cutting and enlarging windows, doorways and lift shafts – or any opening that requires a precise and clean finish.
