Concrete scanning helps identify embedded objects in concrete, reducing the risk of hitting utility lines, rebar, or conduits during coring or cutting. This not only prevents costly damages but also ensures safety on site.
Concrete scanning uses technologies like GPR to identify embedded objects within concrete before cutting, drilling, or coring, minimizing the risk of damages and enhancing safety.
Usually, scanning from one side is sufficient. However, for thicker or more complex structures, or when the object's exact location is vital, scanning from both sides can provide a more comprehensive image.
GPR is often more practical than Xray as it doesn't emit harmful radiation, requires access from only one side, and provides results in real-time. It's used for concrete inspection, rebar mapping, and utility detection.
A GPR scanning report provides a visual representation and interpretation of the data captured during a GPR scan, highlighting the location and depth of embedded objects in the concrete.
