Why use Rock Blasting Services? The purpose of blasting is usually to break the rock sufficiently in order that it can be excavated and removed. To accomplish this, the blaster drills a pattern of holes in the rock to be shattered. These holes are then filled with a pre-determined amount of explosive. When the explosive is detonated, a huge amount of energy is released shattering the surrounding rock.

If done correctly this saves time & money on excavation plant & labour. If done incorrectly it can be dangerous & prolong the works. That is why you need reliable, competent operatives & good management at hand at all times. RBS can offer this as an absolute minimum of service. It is why we believe you’ll understand us when we say ‘knowhow makes a difference’.

Health and Safety Laser Profile Surveys

Our first rule is “Nothing is more important than health & safety” … Our second rule is “Nothing is more important than health & safety”

The system uses 3D rock face profiling to determine rock face geometry, volume measurement and 3D mapping of localised areas or entire sites.

This principle was established in our culture many years ago & we are committed to uphold & enforce it. Accidents are preventable through good management & responsible operatives. Our goal is “Zero Injury” & we have full-time safety staff dedicated to employee training. We have completed major projects without a single reportable injury.


Vibration Control


We strive to understand our clients’ requirements & so far as possible align ourselves with their needs; to continue to meet & occasionally exceed their highest expectations.

Sensitive sites may call for special measures to prevent the blast causing damage or disruption to nearby infrastructure. At RBS our experienced management team & engineers work to provide you with the best & most practical solution available.

RBS accepts its environmental responsibilities and recognises its obligations to contribute to the resolution of global and local environmental issues by reducing its environmental impacts and complying with environmental good practice.

We can model, predict & monitor for the specific project & establish acceptable peak particle velocity limits in high risk areas when projects are outside the conventional guidelines.

We therefore seek to minimise the environmental impact of blasting projects during all design & implementation works. We shall remain devoted to improving the understanding in environmental awareness of our staff
