Hartman Construction

The Project Brief

To create space for bolt holes, our client Hartman Construction needed our assistance with diamond drilling through sandstone for a project based at Daresbury Laboratory in Warrington. 

Diamond drilling services in Warrington

Being a Warrington-based team, we were pleased to offer our diamond drilling services for this local job in Daresbury. 

As accredited concrete drilling contractors, we always rely on our diamond drilling tools for every project, and this job was no different.

To cut the necessary holes in the sandstone, we used our specialist diamond tipped drill bits, which we typically use to cut through tough materials such as concrete, asphalt and brick. 

Sandstone is a popular choice for construction and landscaping projects due to its durability and aesthetic appeal. When it comes to drilling holes through this tough material, traditional drilling methods typically aren’t as effective as using diamond drills - which is why Hartman Construction needed our assistance on this project. 

Diamond drilling through sandstone

Our state-of-the-art drills are equipped with diamond-tipped drill bits that are specifically designed to cut through tough materials like sandstone. 

These drill bits are made with industrial-grade diamonds that are carefully bonded to the drill bit using a metal matrix. The combination of diamonds and metal allow the drill bits to grind away the sandstone as they rotate, creating a clean and precise hole. 

From efficiency to minimised vibrations, the use of diamond drills for cutting through sandstone offers several advantages over other drilling methods. 

Arguably, one of the most important advantages is the superior precision and accuracy these specialist tools offer. The diamond-tipped drill bits create clean and smooth holes without causing any damage or fractures to the surrounding material. This ensures that the integrity of the sandstone is preserved and eliminates the need for any additional repairs or patching.
