The challenge

Hilti jobsite reference MTR metro Hong Kong

Hong Kong is one of the densest cities on earth and the MTR system is its most popular form of transport, with over 1.6 billion passengers a year.

It’s extremely busy and any disruption to the railway has to be kept to a minimum.

So when the MTR decided to build a new lift at the Lai King station, it was crucial to keep dust to a minimum to stop any disturbance to the railway itself.

OUR HILTI SOLUTION

Our Hilti SafeSet™ system was chosen as the answer. We used a mix of HIT-HY 200 chemical adhesive alongside TE-CD and TE-YD hollow drill bits and our Hilti VC 40 vacuum cleaner.

Our hollow drill bits meant the dust could be vacuumed up through the drill bits whilst the drilling  and collected safely using our Hilti VC 40 vacuum cleaner.

This kept the drill hole clean without the need for manual cleaning. Injecting our chemical adhesive was quick and easy, saving building time and minimising harmful dust on the build.
