The Legacy Way project in Brisbane saw Hitech engaged in a range of services including Cold Cutting of pre-stressed anchors. The method of Cold Cutting was used on this project due the anchors being injected with a highly flammable water proofing substance, this didn’t allow for the contractor to use the normal method of de-stressing the anchors.
Hitech utilised its cold cutting equipment to cut through high tensile strands. There were a total of 7 cables and each cable had 7 strands which were encased in a 250mm diameter casing. All 7 cables were cut including the case all the way through whilst the cables were still stressed.
