For those who are unfamiliar with the term ‘Brokk demolition’, it is a method of robotic demolition using a compact but powerful machine. In our post lockdown world as we continue to battle with the pandemic, time and accuracy is key.
The lost weeks where sites were closed and the lost hours since then, when teams have been prevented from working, due to Covid outbreaks and isolation requirements, mean that projects may be running behind schedule. This coupled with issues relating to the supply of some materials has put further pressure on the construction industry.
By engaging National Drilling Services and our Brokk demolition machine you can ensure that your demolition will be quick and clean enabling your redevelopment to begin as soon as possible.
What is a Brokk demolition machine?
As the name suggests the Brokk range of machines are used specifically for demolition. The Brokk product has been developed over a period of over 40 years, when two brothers identified a need for safer demolition. In fact the name ‘Brokk’ came from Nordic mythology inspired by Brokk the dwarf who apparently forged Thor’s hammer. Brokk the dwarf was small, powerful and unbeatable which tells you several attributes about the Brokk demolition machine as well.
Why is it useful that the Brokk demolition machine is small?
The Brokk demolition machine is so small that it can be easily transported from one site to another without the need of a low loader trailer. What’s more the size of this machine enables it to enter lifts, lift shafts and stair wells. In fact as it is also very agile as well as small it can actually climb stairs too.
How can it be powerful if it is so small it can enter a lift?
With continuous development by the team behind Brokk, this machine is progressively more powerful with every new model. It’s power relative to its size is considerable – you will be astounded by what it can achieve in a relatively short time.
What do the National Drilling technicians say about Brokk demolition?
Our technicians find that the Brokk demolition method is easy and safe to use as well as being efficient. As it is operated remotely the technician can stand away from the structure which helps with visibility as well as safety. There are no issues with hand arm vibration problems or ‘white finger’ which is a complaint when using high powered machines in a confined space. In addition to this there are no damaging exhaust gases and only a minimal noise.
Another factor that pleases operators of the Brokk demolition machine is that there are interchangeable heads. These enable the operators to select which attachment is best suited for each particular demolition job. To find out more see our pages on Brokk demolition and robotic demolition.
