There are many reasons for drilling into a wall. HERE IS THE DILEMMA – CHOOSING THE RIGHT CORE BIT! – for drilling through ceramic, marble or granite tiles, or general brick work for water pipes, waste pipes and central heating pipes.
With the latest generation tiles it’s virtually impossible to use the old style drill bits and methods. Old fashioned drill bits burn out very quickly and often they will chip the surface or actually crack a fixed tile. For quite a few years we have provided great solutions to overcome these difficulties (but still) few people know about it. Our product range includes diamond drill bits for flexible working with or without water where no problems are encountered, even when used on the toughest tiles. The market place is swamped with many diverse brands and a great array of prices! Only when used is the quality of these products realised by the person trying to drill the hole! People don’t realise that there are some specific technical features that make the difference. Two diamonds drill bits may look the same or similar, but some will do only 3 holes where others will drill 100 holes! This all depends on the quality of the tool and how it is used. Without going further, I provide below a small list which indicates the type of drill needed for the type of drilling work that needs to be done … plugs, sink holes for pipes etc. I hope it will be useful.
