New demolition technique proves its viability at Croft Quarry

Demolition specialist AR Demolition has brought down structures at a Leicestershire quarry using methods not usually seen outside of military applications.

Working with Alford Technologies, it used weapons-grade hypersonic ‘kick and cut’ charges to bring down a large screen house at Croft Quarry.

He reckons that the technique could now revolutionise safety in the industry.
