What is concrete scanning?
Construction professionals involved in the cutting, coring or drilling of concrete structures require a safe and reliable means of inspecting work areas. The concrete scanning system allows us to scan concrete structures simply and safely and present data clearly for real-time and in-the-box data acquisition, display and analysis. It is a quicker, safer and more cost-effective option than other competing concrete scan systems or traditional radiographic testing methods.
Broad range of applications
Ideal for construction workers and contractors, radar concrete scanning gives you an insight into your building site. Our concrete-specific radar allows us to scan existing concrete structures to present real-time data. In doing so, we can help assess if it is safe to drill or cut the concrete. For example, you could find:
- Electrical conduits
- Post-tension cables
- Pre-stressed tendons
- Steel rebars or reinforcements
Additionally, you can identify faults and voids in your concrete structures, allowing you to locate potential structural damage before it happens. In providing a workable data set, radar scanning is ideal for architects, developers, and engineers alike.
Prevent construction damages
Before any earthmoving or digging, you must know what lies beneath the surface. For example, if you accidentally cut through a reinforcement structure, you could weaken the entire construction, causing costly repairs. Equally, if you damage utility cables or piping, you could place workers in danger. Ensuring you’re prepared can prevent injury and save time for everyone involved.
No matter how experienced your construction team, you can never be too careful. A 2017 report showed that in Queensland, the telecommunications industry experienced $20,000,000 worth of damages from accidental utility strikes per year.
While probing for utilities can result in damage to the structures, our radar concrete scanning is a preferred method thanks to its non-destructive technique.
