23/07/2017

The International Association of Concrete Drillers and Sawers, AICDS, publishes this document (available to consult or download) in order to create trust, clarity and certainty between planners, contractors and building owners.

Planners should be able to rely on the fact that minimum tolerances are maintained in the concrete cutting industry.

This Standard document is a proposal for those countries that don´t have their own national standards.

The contents of the publication are:

  • Glossary of terms, signs and abbreviations
  • What is the purpose of the Standard
  • Countries with National Standards
  • Maximum tolerances
    • For concrete core drilling with diamond tools in horizontal and vertical structures
    • For diamond sawing with rail-mounted wall and plunge blade saws in horizontal and vertical concrete structures.
    • For diamond cutting with rail-mounted (track-mounted) floor saws in horizontal concrete structures
    • For diamond cutting with wheel driven floor saws in horizontal concrete structures.
