Diamond Stitch Drilling
Diamond drilling is a very effective way of drilling holes in reinforced concrete walls, floors and other structures. However, the method has some limitations i.e. the size of holes are limited by the size of diamond drill bits (the largest diamond drill bit measures 1500mm in diameter).
Diamond stitch drilling solves this problem. The method is preferred when creating holes in which the depths and sizes exceed the capabilities of conventional drills. Diamond stitch drilling is a method that involves drilling multiple holes which overlap each other, enabling the formation of openings any shape and size through materials such as reinforced concrete, stone, brick, and blockwork. Stitch drilling is an efficient, quiet and dust-free alternative to demolishing or breaking.
Once the perimeter of the opening is formed, the isolated section is either hydraulically burst and broken or lifted out. Depending on the kind of opening being created, the resulting opening edges can be smoothened out to form an opening with a perfect shape i.e. a square or circle.

Where to Use Diamond Stitch Drilling
The method is popular for creating door, lift and window openings through concrete or many other materials. Since the method produces low vibrations, it is safe and effective for delicate and heavy duty applications as it doesn’t affect the structural integrity.
Ideal for Creating Openings Any Shape or Size
Stitch drilling makes it possible to create openings of any shape or size through stone, brick, block and concrete slabs amongst many other hard surfaces, with excellent accuracy.
Diamond drilling is far cheaper than conventional drilling methods. The method guarantees structural stability which eliminates the need for costly repairs and reinforcements to structures compared to traditional drilling and breaking methods. Diamond drilling also saves on labour costs.
A key factor as to why diamond stitch drilling stands out is because the method produces minimal vibration. Unlike conventional drilling techniques, diamond drilling doesn’t compromise the stability of the structure.
Due to the use of water as a coolant minimal dust is produced when diamond stitch drilling is performed.
