A Non-Destructive Solution
Our Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) Scanner is ideal for commercial, residential and industrial applications where material analysis doesn't involve any coring or probing through the surface. It is inexpensive and can save you hundreds (if not thousands) in comparison to coring through structural steel.
We specialize in locating:
Reinforced Steel (Rebar)
Post Tension Cables (Stress Cables)
Live and Dead Wires
Water Lines and Pipes
With being able to scan up to 350mm deep, we can also attach a transmitter to our ground penetration radar which is useful when there are multiple services in the same area. This way we can locate the specific service you require regardless of how many utilities there may be.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a concrete scan take?
An average small scan of 1m2 can take between 45 minutes to 1 hour to scan, mark and advise what has been interpreted by the GPR display.
How does a Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) Work?
A ground penetration radar works be sending and receiving electromagnetic signals through a transmitter/receiver. This signal is then (typically) displayed on an LCD screen attached to the unit.
Does a Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) emit any harmful radiation?
Many people question whether there is any danger for the person using the GPR, and the answer is no. Although "ground penetration radar" may sound like a hazardous technique, it is extremely safe and emits roughly 1% of the power of a cellular phone signal.
Do you provide a scanning report (or a JSR)?
Yes. You will be issued a Job Site Report (JSR) after the works have been completed.
