Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is the only safe, non-invasive tool for detecting objects in concrete. GPR can locate rebar, post-tensioning cable, conduits, and heating lines within concrete and CMU block so you can avoid potentially costly accidents when cutting or drilling. GPR can also provide estimates of object depth, which other tools cannot.
Advantages of GPR over X-Ray for concrete imaging:
GPR is not hazardous to human health, as opposed to radiation from X-rays
GPR only needs access to one side of the concrete slab, while X-ray requires access to both sides.
GPR can differentiate between conduits carrying electrical energy and rebar
GPR can provide depth estimates to rebar, PT cable, and conduit as well as slab thickness
With our expertise in GPR solutions, we can provide concrete imaging for buildings, on exterior and interior walls, floors, and ceilings. It is possible to determine the grouting conditions of CMU wall as well.
Other applications that we’ve provided include assessing rebar on bridges and concrete panels in roadways. Our concern is safety first, and getting the most from your data to help your project work proceed as quickly and smoothly as possible!
