Ground Penetrating Radar on The Sunshine Coast
Ground Penetrating Radar is a non-destructive geo-physical method that uses radar pulses to 'map' an image of shallow subsurface features (down to approximately 6 metres). The data collected from the radar sweeping across the surface is collected to construct a view of the subsurface. The technology allows you to identify water mains, pipes, fire main valves, fire optic cables and more. Cutting into this infrastructure can be very costly. It can also endanger the lives of your workers.
123LocateIt has the most advanced Ground Penetrating Radar technology, operated by the most experienced team in the Sunshine Coast. As a result, we believe we're the best option for you to map the sub-surface of your site before you dig.
There are some conditions that can limit the effectiveness of the technology. High-conductivity (e.g. high moisture content) materials and heterogeneous conditions (e.g. rocky soils) will reduce its performance. For example, whilst dry sandy soils will allow radar penetration to approximately 6 metres, wet clay soils and salt-contaminated soils can reduce the depth to less than 1 metre. Rocky soils can cause radar signal scattering.
We will advise you on these factors and help you make the best possible decision before you commence work.
