Don't know what's in the slab? Sounds Dangerous! Scan BEFORE you cut or core!
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is routinely used throughout the Construction Industry to identify:
- steel reinforcing
- post-tension cables
- voids beneath slabs
- plumbing services, electrical services
GPR is a cost effective and non destructive method of identifying objects in concrete prior to cutting / coring. Imaging results appear instantaneously to allow marking out on the spot. In addition to on the spot results and analysis, Allied produce comprehensive scanning reports as required and requested.
Using detection tools such as GPR has the following advantages:
- circumvent the need to open the existing structure to locate objects or measure rebar size;
- improves safety by avoiding accidents caused by cutting through live power or a tension cable.
- avoid delays and costs associated with structural damage and repairs by finding alternative solutions in the event any of the above are identified in the slab.
