BOC has a long history of supplying demolition and dismantling companies with gases and products needed for their work. Whether you are involved in building demolition or industrial object decommissioning, we can support all the key activities including:
Dismantling of metal structures and installations.
Dismantling of structural steel frameworks.
Preparation of demolition waste for removal and recycling.
We are the only major industrial gas supplier to have joined the FORS scheme and received the bronze level of accreditation to give you additional peace of mind.
Dismantling of metal structures and steel frameworks
Dismantling metal structures and extracting steel is one of the most common activities on a demolition site. Getting the right tools for the job provides you with the peace of mind that the project will be completed on time and within budget.
You might use various techniques and technologies for dismantling steel frames, metal pipelines and other installations, but when working in confined spaces the most common techniques will be thermal-based.
BOC can provide you with a full range of oxy-fuel gases for cutting metals, including acetylene and propane and all the relevant hard goods such as cutters and burners, regulators and any PPE you might require to do the job safely and quickly. Find out more about cutting methods.
Concrete cutting is one of the key techniques used in building demolition. Today it becomes even more important as steel from refabs in reinforced concrete can be fully recycled and re-used again, providing additional financial and environmental benefits.
Waste removal and recycling
A lot of emphasis has been put on material recycling in construction, and its importance is growing. This is mainly due to the environmental aspects and scarcity of resources.
It might be relatively easy to capture large metal elements at the end of a building's life, however removal of these elements in one piece might present an operational challenge.
Most of our customers are therefore forced to prepare these objects for transportation before they leave the demolition site.
These preparations may include cutting large pieces of steel frames or tanks, or welding together small elements into bulkier pieces that are easier to handle.
With BOC you do not need to look any further for all your welding or cutting supplies.
If you are in a need of welding gases, our popular Argoshield shielding gas is the product for you. We can also supply you with other gas products and mixtures depending on the type of metal you are working with.
