Vault removal involves tearing down walls, bank vault door removal, and deconstructing its cement panels while leaving the rest of the building intact. Bank vault demolition is a rigorous job that should only be completed by a demolition expert. If you have a safe or a vault that needs to be removed, Interstate Sawing & Demolition can help. We have successfully completed a number of bank vault demolition projects and we’re ready to put our expertise to work for you.

There are a variety of reasons why bank vault demolition should be left to professionals. Here’s what you need to know about the importance of using specialized equipment to get the job done.

Bank Vaults are Difficult to Remove

Bank vaults are used to secure everything from money and valuable items to records and documents. Vaults protect their contents with armored walls and a tightly fashioned door closed with a complex lock. Some nineteenth and early twentieth-century vaults were even built so well that today they are almost impossible to destroy.

Since bank vaults are typically made with steel-reinforced concrete, special tools are needed to remove them. Demolition robots are the preferred choice to remove drywall and delaminate the rebar around vaults. Robots are also used to break apart the concrete and separate it from the steel rebar. Once the concrete is meticulously and strategically broken up, the debris is loaded up and properly disposed of.

Bank Vault Demolition Projects are Dangerous

Trying to remove a bank vault without the correct training or experience would be very dangerous. There are several dangers associated with removing a bank vault, including the risk of collapse, electrocution, and injuries from falling debris. Any mistakes made when handling objects of the size and weight of a vault could very easily result in a serious accident. 

Special Equipment Gets the Job Done Faster & Safer

The time it takes to remove a bank vault depends on the size and type of vault being demolished. Most small to medium-sized vaults can be removed in a few hours or just a few days. However, larger vaults can take up to a week to remove.

Special equipment is needed to reduce not only the cost of the project but also the amount of time it takes to complete the job. For instance, the alternative method of saw-cutting the concrete surrounding a vault would take several weeks to complete. Not to mention, this would cause much greater wear on the tool and add to the overall cost. A professional demolition company will have the right equipment to complete the job while ensuring a safe, clean area. That’s why our preferred method is to use robots for their safety and efficiency.
