Concrete & Structure Scanning
Concrete & Structure Scanning is performed utilizing similar technology as GPR albeit on a smaller scale, with a smaller antenna at a higher frequency. Concrete Scanning is a tool that is used to find anomalies in concrete slabs, inside walls, ceilings, pillars and columns. Concrete Scanning is ideal for locating both non-conductive and conductive materials and structures (without any surface connection, or access points) under and inside concrete.
Concrete Scanning is performed using an antenna in the 1600- 2600 MHz making it ideal and primarily used for locating reinforcing steel, post-tensioned & pre-tensioned cables & conduits up to 18" deep. The depth and accuracy of these data results are dependent on a number of variables, such as age of the concrete, density, moisture content, and antenna frequency. We use antennas in the 1600 - 2000 MHz range antenna unit which can reach depths of up to 18" (in perfect conditions).
