Light demolition

Get the job done in a fraction of the time with the right breaker and chisel.

Dust and vibration-related health issues are both a major problem across the construction industry. 

On renovation jobs, you’ll often need to demolish partitions or take up floor tiles - tasks that generate large quantities of harmful dust that you not only have to worry about cleaning up afterwards but also the serious health-issues regular inhalation of dust can cause. To protect your health and improve productivity, using the right tools for the job is important.

Let's take a look at ways to make sure your small demolition tasks are up to scratch.

Remove dust at source to protect your health

Virtually dust-free working

When inhaled regularly, fine dust particles can lead to serious long-term health conditions that affect your quality of life

Certain jobs on renovation projects generate huge quantities of dust. When you’re breaking through walls or demolishing ceilings in just 1 hour of chiselling you can generate up to 2kg of dust. That’s an enormous amount. Dust is everywhere on site and it’s important to work in safe conditions to protect yourself and not put your health at risk. You can find out more about the effects of dust here.  

Alongside the harmful effects dust has on your health and well-being, you also need to consider the impact dust has on productivity onsite such as prepping work areas before carrying out work and cleaning afterwards. Introducing the TE-DRS-Y dust removal system designed especially for SDS-Max drills that helps save you time when preparing or cleaning your site. Its Dust Removal System collects up to 99% of fine particle dust and allows you to chisel, drill and bore practically dust-free. Moreover, protecting your tools from dust build-up means they last longer. 

The VC 20-UM professional building site vacuum system collects up to 21 L of dry and moist dust (M class) in the most extreme site conditions. To gain time and protect your health, you need to use the right tools for the job.

Less vibration, more comfort

When carrying out renovation work, you can unavoidably be exposed to some vibration when drilling, chiseling or breaking

Regular use of hand-held tools that vibrate can cause serious problems for your joints, but also your nervous system or circulation. 

The active vibration reduction system (AVR) developed by Hilti reduces the level of vibration by two thirds compared with conventional electro-portable tools, giving heightened productivity and improved working comfort. It helps to lower the risk of health problems linked to vibrations, such as musculoskeletal disorders, and extends the life of your tools. 

The good news is that it is available for many demolition tools like the TE 50-AVR drill, TE 700-AVR and TE 800-AVR demolition hammers that can help to limit the vibration in your arms and back and better protect your joints. ​

Using the right equipment is key to save time, increase working comfort, and deliver quality results.
